Hello, prospective students! I'm Jessi Huntenburg, a compassionate, effective tutor of the language arts. I have nearly four years and 2,000+ hours of tutoring experience, and I am excited to share my comprehensive knowledge of the language arts with you.

When I volunteered with The Center for Literacy in 2012, my passion for tutoring was born. Soon after, I became a clinician with Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, a renowned leader in the field of reading remediation. For the past year, I've been a dorm tutor for Chinese high school students with International Education Opportunities, an experience that's allowed me to tutor everything from ESL to Biology. As a result, I'm highly adaptable in terms of subject matter, and tackle learning with a inter-disciplinary approach.

Although I am well-versed in many subjects, I am an "Essay Guru". With my guidance, students routinely improve their expository writing scores by three letter grades. The collaborative way in which I approach instruction is highly valued by all of my students, and I bring a lightness to my sessions without sacrificing professionalism. In other words, my students aren't afraid to laugh! I am able to suspend their fears so that they can effectively engage with subject matter, an ability that's priceless when it comes to overall improvement in subject comprehension.

Thank you for considering me as your or your child's tutor. I promise that I will make the language arts less daunting, and dare I say it--fun! Good luck on your search, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I am an ESL/academic tutor for International Education Opportunities, an organization that supports native Chinese students as they study at American High Schools. Additionally, I have tutored ESL students independently for the past four years. Most notably, I helped a native Arabic speaker with minimal English language skills transition to an intermediate level within six months.

As a college student, I was an editor of a campus literary magazine. I have proofread an estimated total of 40 academic papers for students ranging in age from eleven to twenty-five; I proofread for grammatical errors as well as compliance with the MLA Handbook and Chicago Manual of Style. I have an innate ability to detect syntactical and grammatical errors; I can tell when a sentence "doesn't sound right" and am able to correct even the most obscure errors. I am a Pennsylvania state certified English teacher, grades 7-12. I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English

Writing

Writing

I teach two main types of writing: research and persuasive. I guide students through the processes of brainstorming, outlining, drafting, revising, and citing, paying close attention to the elements of organization and expression. I advise those with the most basic to advanced skill sets, providing fundamental frameworks to the former and the building blocks of mature linguistic expression to the latter. I have experience in advising elementary to collegiate level students, and guarantee at least one letter grade improvement following the administration of my services.
