I have taken over 35 literature and creative writing classes at the undergraduate and graduate level.
ExperienceI currently teach Rhetoric & Composition and Introduction to Literature at Ohio State. I work with my students to develop strong research and writing skills.
In addition, I tutor junior high and high school students in all major subject areas, but focus on the humanities. I have experience working with students with special needs and with ESL students.
I have professional editing and proofreading experience. When I am not instructing college students, I teach creative writing to junior high and high school students.
One of my focuses is on the importance of writing outside of the classroom. I can work with high school students on their college application essays, cover letters for summer employment, and statements for internships. Tutoring and editing needs can be fulfilled in person, over the phone, or on-line.
HobbiesI am a modern dancer, an avid reader, a dog lover and a New York native. I return every other month to host a local reading series in New York City and I am famous for my contagious laugh. I come from a family of educators--and if anyone needs a history tutor, my sister is available for on-line tutoring.

Jessie is simply an amazing and brilliant teacher! She is really skilled at identifying where you need improvement and offering insightful strategies. Before my experience with Jessie, I dreaded writing. She really challenged me to think critically and helped me to become a much better writer. Now I find writing a lot easier, and occasionally even enjoy it! On top of all that, Jessie made the experience fun - she brings a lot of energy and patience, and has a clear passion and natural ability for teaching. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
