Hi, I'm Jessica! I recently graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. My passion for tutoring was inspired by my love of learning and helping others succeed. As a tutor, I thoroughly enjoy watching my students learn the skills they need to meet their goals. I specialize in tutoring English and writing skills for exams (SAT and ACT), college essays, graduate personal statements, academic writing assignments, and more.

I have tutored the SAT, both online and in-person, for over 3 years. When I took my SAT in high school I scored highly (Reading: 800, Writing: 770, Math: 750, Total percentile 99.8%). During my second year of college at The University of Texas at Austin, I was invited to help pilot-test the New SAT. I have been on the Honors List at The University of Texas at Austin for six semesters, and recently achieved a 95th-percentile MCAT score.

During application season, I enjoy helping high school and University students develop and perfect their college essays and graduate personal statements. This is one of my favorite projects, because I love hearing students’ unique stories and helping them present themselves well in written form.
My degree in psychology required developing an in-depth knowledge of research methods and academic writing, and I am happy to share these skills by helping University students with academic papers and writing assignments.

In all of my sessions I work to understand the specific needs and learning style of each student, so that the focus of our lesson can be tailored to fit these needs. My session goals are to help students recognize the areas they struggle with most and learn new strategies for improvement.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Very good tutor

Jessica was very easy to understand and very patient to ensure math and Reading information was understood. She knew her stuff and made the session very comfortable. Will use her again if needed.
