English, Test Prep, And Study Skills
My name is Jessica, and I am a private tutor and certified classroom English teacher with experience teaching and tutoring K-12, college, and adult students. My love of teaching comes from a passion for reading and writing and a compassion for helping others become confident and successful learners.
I am a certified English teacher with ten years of classroom experience in middle school and high school settings. In addition to working in the classroom setting, I have experience tutoring students in college level literature and writing courses, all levels of middle and high school English, including advanced and AP courses, executive functioning and study skills, as well as 4th and 5th graders in reading, writing, and vocabulary. I also have experience tutoring and preparing students for the SAT, ACT, ISEE, and SSAT verbal, reading comprehension, and writing tests. Additionally, I am also certified and experienced in teaching students with learning disabilities in both a co-taught and resource room learning environment. I have received extensive training in the Columbia University readers and writers workshop model and the Orton Gillingham method. My wealth of knowledge and experience teaching students of diverse cultural backgrounds and various learning abilities has made me an expert at tailoring my instructional approach and strategies to meet the needs of each individual learner. I am confident that I can help you achieve your goals, whether those be short term preparation for a test or long term development of reading, writing, and study skills.
