    My children love Jess. She obviously loves the work she does and the stuff she learns&teaches, and the quality of her teaching quite frankly reflects through my children’s grades. 5 stars.

  • Terry Wilson

    Jess is a wonderful young lady who loves working with students. She is very bright and intelligent, and also very friendly and caring. I’d recommend her as a tutor any day.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, we talk about the subject and the parts of it the student finds most difficult. I assess their level of understanding by listening to the student’s thought process when solving some sample problems. If the student already has materials they want to work with, then we focus on those. If not, I bring or request the student to bring supplementary materials that I provide.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a current student, a rising sophomore at MIT. I have tutored students ranging from 4th to 10th grade in primarily math and English.


How did you get started teaching?

I started becoming interested in teaching when colleagues asked me for help on their assignments in high school. It was fun, so I asked people at my church if they wanted a tutor. I started to work as a tutor since then.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with 4th-10th grade students.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently tutored three Korean students in English (ESL) for a semester. They had just moved to the US and could barely communicate in English. They just called me a few days ago to tell me that they were able to test out of most of their ESL classes.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I suggest finding a teacher who can view things broad and narrow, someone who pays attention to the big picture and small details at the same time. This can help move through curriculums smoothly without much gaps in understanding. Most importantly, I suggest a teacher who really cares about you and your understanding of the material.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Before telling the teacher about a need, the student should have thought through the problem so that they can clearly state what they are having difficulty with and how the teacher can help.
