About Jessica

Hello WyzAnt Community!

Back in the day I taught 4th-6th grades at a progressive Montessori school in Upstate NY. I've been a tutor off and on but over the last few years, it's been unfortunately more off than on. I miss it! I miss helping students and working with parents. I currently work at a family foundation focused on computational learning and educational reform.

Pedagogically, I am a fan of blended, personalized learning. The role of the teacher is to guide, to encourage critical thinking, to allow the student to make conclusions and create ideas on his or her own. I check my ego at the door and coach, challenge, and help the student not to just learn but feel good about learning!
