Summer Tutoring

Now that another school year has ended, students are taking a well deserved break from their classrooms. The summer months provide a great opportunity to review difficult concepts from the previous year, fill in knowledge gaps, and keep the mind active during the break. One-on-one tutoring provides structure in an encouraging environment and opens the door for meaningful academic progress. I'd love to help support your student's learning this summer!


Whether your student needs support completing homework or a more individualized learning approach, I have an option for you! Choose from multiple plans to best suit your needs:

One-time sessions are available for $60 per hour for students who may be studying for a test or writing a paper and only need occasional help. Contact for more information.

About Jessica

I have a over a decade of experience working with students in classrooms and as a tutor both in-person and online. I earned degrees in Elementary Education and Spanish Studies from Whitworth University. I spent a year working in a therapeutic special education classroom and value an affirming and relationship-based approach.

I encourage my students to ask questions, take responsibility for their learning, and discover their own unique potential. I love seeing my students gain confidence and excitement as they realize how much they are capable of doing. I would be delighted to partner with you to help your student succeed!

I'm looking forward to working with you,

Jessica Coffin

Happy Parents, Happy Kids

Here is what students and parents say about me:

Karina S.

Jessica has saved us!!! My son has dyslexia and he no longer dreads reading. My daughter could not get to her math assignments without complete battles and frustration with mom trying to teach her! Jessica is disciplined, kind, and sooooo child centric that the kids respond to her even after a long day. She is amazing and will be with our family for a long time. Now going on 2 years working with Jessica. As busy parents, we could not do it without her.

Christine S.

Jessica has worked with my 10 y/o twice a week over the last 3 years. She's amazing and has helped him with reading, writing, and math so much! He's made incredible progress over a relatively short amount of time thanks to Jessica's efforts. She's knowledgeable, patient, kind, prepared, and punctual. She has a million tricks up her sleeve for motivating kids. She also understands how to work with diverse kids like mine who struggle with attention. He has lots of avoidance strategies for things that are hard, and she handles these behaviors in stride with calmness and grace, and she's somehow always able to guide the focus back to learning. I can't recommend her enough.

Jack, Age 12

When I started tutoring I felt like my learning ability went up big time!

Anne S.

Jessica is a truly remarkable tutor. When our oldest daughter began struggling in math in fourth grade, we began working with Jessica intensively (two sessions per week). After a year, our daughter not only caught up, she tested into accelerated math. Most importantly, her confidence in herself and her ability to take on challenging work was restored.

Maddie, age 13

Jessica made math so much easier to understand and is just a really great teacher.

Sara L.

Jessica is friendly, caring, and skilled. We have worked with her for over five years. Our nephew can have challenging days and Jessica is skilled at being able to bring him back around to learning, even when he seems like he’s not interested in participating that day.

Amy L.

We love having Jessica as our daughter’s math tutor and our daughter loves having a female role model to look to when overcoming new learning challenges and content. As we were writing this review, both my daughter and I wanted to focus on how fond we are of Jessica’s warmth and patience and how quickly she put my daughter at ease.What I really want to highlight is what a smart, skilled, organized, capable, and competent teacher Jessica is. She is, and continues to be, an invaluable component to our daughter’s love and enjoyment of learning math.

Jolie, age 10

Jessica is willing to help me with anything no matter what and is super nice. I like her because she makes anything you’re learning fun.

Julie A.

Jessica has been an amazing tutor for our son! I am so happy we found her during the pandemic to help our son progress in school. His reading was struggling and we saw it soar after a few months of working with Jessica. Our son continues to work with her to help him grow in school. Jessica has been the best addition to our family!!


How will I be billed?

Invoices are emailed out one week prior to their due date. Sessions are paid for in advance on a monthly basis. Automatic payments are available.

Are payment plans available?

Weekly payment plans are available upon request, but all sessions will be billed in advance.

What is your reschedule policy?

Please provide a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel a session. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled within 2 weeks of the original session date, free of charge. Sessions that are not rescheduled will not be refunded. If illness or injury prevents your student from making their session, please let me know as soon as possible.

What if my student is out of town during a scheduled tutoring session?

Your monthly invoice will be adjusted accordingly if you let me know in advance that you will be out of town or unavailable for multiple sessions in an upcoming month.

If you are discontinuing tutoring before your purchased sessions run out, a 50% refund will be given on unused services.

How do virtual tutoring sessions work?

You will need an internet connection and a computer or tablet to participate. I use a video conference program and a digital whiteboard to teach and display lessons and worksheets. If preferred, I will email worksheets and extended practice pages for you to print out on your end for your student to complete by hand.

What if technical difficulties prevent me from having a successful tutoring session?

Due to the nature of online tutoring, technology malfunction is to be occasionally expected. If technical difficulties prevent your session from happening, I will reschedule for a makeup session at a later date, or credit your account for the lost time.
