About Jessica


Bio

Hey there! I’m Jess. I first started tutoring in high school as part of a National Honors Society program and I continued while an undergraduate at NYU.

I have experience tutoring most high school subjects but have a particularly strong attachment to middle and high school math. In my experience, I've found that too many students get frustrated too easily when learning a new concept and quickly declare that they hate math. As a student who was in the same boat for many years my tutoring is...

Hey there! I’m Jess. I first started tutoring in high school as part of a National Honors Society program and I continued while an undergraduate at NYU.

I have experience tutoring most high school subjects but have a particularly strong attachment to middle and high school math. In my experience, I've found that too many students get frustrated too easily when learning a new concept and quickly declare that they hate math. As a student who was in the same boat for many years my tutoring is especially well tailored to these kinds of students.

I find it very fulfilling to step in and help otherwise talented students get over these small stumbling blocks so they can find success in math the way I did. I like the challenge of finding a new and different way to explain a difficult concept and it is an exciting experience when a new approach finally clicks for a student. Altogether I hope to show that with a little innovative thinking about the subject, math can even be fun!

Are you an adult or college student studying for the GRE after being away from school for awhile and need a math refresh? I'd love to help you with that as well!

Some of my own standardized test scores include 780 Verbal/720 Math SAT I and 760 SAT II Writing. I also scored 5s in AP Biology, AP US History, AP US Government and Politics and AP Comparative Government and Politics and 4s in AP Spanish and AP Statistics. I scored 165 Math/166 Verbal (out of 170) on the GRE.

Unfortunately, Wyzant's "tutoring radius" doesn't really account for the difficulty of getting around via public transportation in New York City. I am currently only taking new students for weekday evening sessions in Manhattan below 96th street or in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene or Clinton Hill. I am also available for weekend sessions.

Easy going, pleasure to work with

My daughter, Isabella, was struggling with her 8th grade Algebra. Jess made her feel at ease and comfortable. After 3 sessions, Isabella's grades in Algebra 1 have improved, but more importantly, so has her understanding and confidence in Math.
