Meet Jessica Bush
Jessica of Tutor Doctor of North Jersey was the Featured Educational Expert for “Best of NJ: Back to School 2016”
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. Her innate ability to sense the emotional connection between artists and the work they collect was the secret to her success.
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. Like the collector’s connection with their art, she sees an emotional connection between a family and their student – and between the student and their learning progress.
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 frustrations. They may be looking for someone to tutor their child in a specific subject or help them acquire strong test-taking skills. They may want support in boosting their own self-confidence. Maybe they are unsure where to begin, or have tried other options without success.
Jessica combines their valuable input with her intuition and expertise, and 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. She is always just a phone call away!
