Position: Tutor

Qualification: Bachelor of Science in Aquatic Fishery and Science (Minors: Marine Biology and Quantitative Sciences)

Jessica graduated from the University of Washington in 2010 with a major in Aquatic Fishery and Science and minored in marine biology and quantitative sciences. From there she spent half a year in 2011 interning for the Wild Fish Conservancy catching, measuring, and identifying the fish community in the Grays Harbor region for potential habitat restoration projects for the region.

In 2012, she moved from Seattle, Washington to the Monterey Bay Region to pursue her graduate studies at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories working in the Pacific Shark Research Center specializing in elasmobranch (sharks, rays, skates and chimaeras) reproductive biology. This past November 2013, she participated in an Expanding your Horizons (EYH) program at Hartnell College organizing a workshop for girls grades 6th to 10th to learn about sharks and their relatives. Being trained in science background, she believes that she has an obligation to teach her students to be appreciative in the sciences, especially marine science and how things are connected.

She has been tutoring since 2002 with children ranging from elementary school to high school level. She focuses on understanding the interests of her students and thinks of ways to apply them to their studies challenging them. She understands there are alternative ways to solve problems so she does the best of her abilities to introduce new techniques and methods to help her students understand the materials.
