About Jessica

I graduated from West Liberty University in May 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, K-6. I hold a valid and current teaching license in the state of West Virginia. I have completed 6 hours of coursework in the Master's of Education program in order to obtain license renewal. I am a stay-at-home-mom of two girls, and have a flexible schedule to meet with potential clients. I have passed all teaching exams such as: PRAXIS, PPST, and PLT, so I can also offer assistance with those who need additional resources or tutoring in the preparation and passing of those particular teaching exams. I enjoy being creative and hands-on with lessons, and attempt to incorporate the various learning styles into my lessons, taking into account the most successful way the student personally absorbs the content and material they need additional help with.
