- Private Tutoring
My name is Jessica. For the past 10 years I have been tutoring, teaching and coaching various populations who struggle with American English, reading comprehension, writing, speech, pronunciation, ESL and learning disabilities. I received my undergrad degree from The George Washington University in Psychology, Masters from John Hopkins in Clinical Counseling and just received my (TEFL) teaching certificate from Georgetown University. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve and overcome obstacles. My background allows me to use certain techniques that can enhance effectiveness in order to get the most benefit from our work together. My goal is to improve our students confidence, speech, pronunciation, ESL, reading fluency, writing, reading comprehension, decoding & encoding, executive functioning skills, test taking & note taking, focus & organization and auditory processing, motivation and study strategies Courses are held online and in person from 9:00AM-8:00PM, Sunday through Friday to both groups and individuals. Packages and pricing vary depending on the specific needs, program and number of sessions. ONLINE COURSES Online courses are taught using both Skype and Adobe Connect. The live platform allows us to provide audio and visual interaction, as well as to share instruction materials including documents, PowerPoints and videos. Using this live program, we can create an individual experience for each student, and you can receive personal attention during your online classes. Each class we teach focuses on one area at a time, so that you get comprehensive lessons in a specific subject. Sessions mostly take place online with an experienced and credentialed coach/tutor who is knowledgeable and experienced in the area of need. The student tutor/coach matching process is based on individual needs and the outcome of the initial assessment. We begin with an assessment of each student to determine his or her strengths and weaknesses and the most appropriate methods. We then put together a diagnostic and prescriptive learning plan. We integrate hands-on techniques for ESL learners, language-based learning disabilities as well as specific strategies for executive functioning and auditory processing. Some of the skills that we cover include: Intonation Speech/accent reduction Vocabulary Pronunciation reading fluency writing reading comprehension decoding & encoding executive functioning skills summarizing test taking & note taking focus & organization auditory processing motivation study strategies If you are interested please call or text to learn more.
