Jessica is passionate about people. Her enthusiasm for connecting with others – and caring deeply about their needs and desires – is obvious from the moment you meet her. These qualities fuel her drive to help students of all ages achieve their dreams.
Jessica’s sensitivity to mental health advocacy and commitment to helping others is something she learned from her mother. And she credits her father with her love of art. Prior to her involvement with Tutor Doctor, Jessica spent 25 years selling fine art and photography to collectors and galleries around the world.
As owner of Tutor Doctor of North Jersey, Jessica has woven together these twin legacies from her parents: the desire to support her students’ emotional health and to help them develop their creative selves. She sees an emotional connection between a family and their student – and between the student and their learning progress – in the same way she could sense a collector’s connection with their art.
Jessica listens and observes each student and family in order to fully understand their unique dynamics – at home and in school. She also spends time listening to their goals and their frustrations. Combining their valuable input with her intuition and expertise, she identifies the ideal tutor from her pool of talented resources. Her goal is not to simply connect a tutor with a student, but to build an educational support team with a shared commitment to see the student succeed and excel – in school and life.
Families know they can count on Jessica to be accessible, responsive and helpful in any way she can. She has earned her clients’ trust by being honest, reliable and professional – whether she’s advocating on behalf of a student with school administrators or serving as a liaison with other support services.
For Jessica, success is not just about academics. It’s about truly caring for her students and building relationships that extend beyond classroom learning.
