About Jessica

I love math, science, and chemistry. My position as an Environmental Laboratory Technician allows me to use those skills on a daily basis.

I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I have over five years of experience working with K-12th graders at a pace curriculum school where I loved working one-on-one with students. I also have experience preparing students for the SATs.

I absolutely love math! I have worked with quick learners but also individuals who struggle with the concept. I always try to find a way to relate math to their unique lifestyle so they can better understand.

I would love to work with you. Please contact me if you are struggling with one particular area, are preparing for a test, or just need a fresher on a subject. I would be more than happy to help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked as a supervisor for two years at a K-12 PACE curriculum school. Since the students worked at their own pace, a supervisors job was to monitor everyone and help them understand the material when necessary. The biggest role of a supervisor was to tutor an individual one-on-one in material they were struggling in.

Elementary Math

I worked for 2 years at a K-12 Pace curriculum school. Pace curriculums allow you to work one-on-one with students that are struggling in a particular area. Math is my favorite subject and was my primary subject to help students learn at the school. One of my goals with each session is to make math fun and relatable to the individual. If children at a young age cannot relate to math then they lose interest. When the interest is lost on a subject that builds on each lesson, you can easily get behind. I never want to see that happen.

Geometry

Geometry is my favorite subject in math. I am thankful to have a job that allows me to use this course often. I have obtained two operator licenses with the help of knowing and loving geometry.

Homeschool

I worked as a supervisor for 2 years at a K-12 PACE curriculum school. Since the students worked at their own pace, a supervisors job was to monitor everyone and help them understand the material when necessary. This particular school was a very small private Christian school. I was also homeschooled for two years in high school through the A Beka Program.

Prealgebra

I worked at a pace curriculum school for 2 years. The school was K-12. I worked with all levels, however, I was primarily helping middle and high school grades. I assisted them with math and chemistry mostly and biology when needed. Pre-algebra is a very important subject because it is the first step in algebra. If pre-algebra is not understood early, it will be difficult to succeed in future algebra courses.

SAT Math

I have experience taking the SATs and scoring well. My scores helped me to get into the college I desired. Math is my favorite subject. My love for math has helped me succeed in getting my degree as well as my position as an Environmental Laboratory Technician. My position requires me to use math on a daily basis. I have tutored a few individuals on the math portion of the SATs.

algebra/ calculus — This was our first lesson with Jessica for my son to get him a review in algebra/calculus before he goes off to college. She made things easy to understand and helped him remember things quickly. Very pleased! ...
