About Jessica

Hello,

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Indiana University of Pennsylvania on May 8, 2013 and received a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education. I also hold a minor in Educational Psycology.

Since graduation, I have experienced many great accomplishments in teaching. My experience includes teaching English/Language Arts and Theatre in a public school in Indiana County, PA. I have lead writing workshops, assisted in musical productions, coached an Impromptu Speech team, and judged Poetry Outloud competitions. My strength is creating engaging, thoughtful lessons that allow the student to connect to the material, which increases the probability of retaining information.

I have also served an AmeriCorps teacher, working with learning-support students in Reading and Math. During this experience, I lead an after-school Math tutoring program for grades 4, 5, and 6. The students and I worked one-on-one completing worksheets and homework together. Students also developed skills by playing subject-related games, working with interactive computer programs, and engaging in hands-on activities.

My passion grows beyond the classroom. I enjoy reading and writing in my spare time as a leisurely activity. It is my goal to show students that reading and writing is fun and achievable. My experiences have made me a well-rounded teacher. Please contact me to schedule a lesson or to speak more about my experience.

Thank you,



Jessica

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

I enjoy teaching public speaking. I took a public speaking course at IUP, taught Theater at a high school, and lead an Impromtu Speech team.
