Hello! My name is Jessica, and I graduated summa cum laude from Westminster College with degrees in both Elementary Education and Broadcast Communications. I have served as a daily and long-term substitute teacher in various grades, subjects, and school districts. My most important role, as of late, has been one of stay-at-home mom. With two children in elementary school, I am familiar with current curriculum standards. As an educator, I understand that children learn best in different ways. I will structure my tutoring sessions to fit the learning styles of each individual child. Outside of the classroom, I play and coach both softball and basketball. As an avid musician, I also enjoy nurturing the development of beginning trumpet players. Finally, please know that I am a patient and knowledgeable educator who will work tirelessly to provide students with the best tutoring possible. I look forward to working with your child.
