"Hi, I'm Jessica! I recently graduated with my Master's in Medical Anthropology, and I previously completed my Bachelor's in Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin. My passion for tutoring was inspired by my love of learning, and I enjoy helping students grow and gain 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.

For the past five years, I have tutored students preparing to take the SAT. When I took the 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. At the University of Texas at Austin I was on the Honors List for six semesters, and I 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 in the best possible light. In addition to applications, I enjoy working with academic writing. My Master's degree in Anthropology required developing in-depth knowledge of qualitative research methods and writing skills (particularly for the social sciences and humanities), and I am happy to share these skills by helping University students conceptualize and edit academic papers, essays, and thesis work.

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!
