MEET OUR NASSAU COUNTY NY SPEECH THERAPIST, JESSICA
New York State Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and a Certified Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD); SAT Instructor
Jessica is a speech-language pathologist with a postgraduate degree from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a master’s with the highest honors in Speech-Language Pathology from CUNY Queens College. She holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as well as her New York State License and Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) Certification. As a speech-language pathologist in the NYC DOE public schools, Jessica believes in helping each student find their own path to success. Jessica employs multiple evidence-based teaching strategies to appeal to all learning styles (visual, verbal, tactile/kinesthetic, etc.) — and she also believes that everyone learns better when there’s room for some humor and fun! Jessica specializes in instructing students from elementary through high school with literacy challenges (i.e., assistance with decoding, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, reading comprehension, and vocabulary). Jessica is currently trained in the following reading interventions: SPIRE Reading Intervention, Phonics for Reading by Anita Archer, Ph.D., Wilson Reading System Level 1, Equipped for Reading Success by David A. Kilpatrick, Ph.D., Heggerty Phonemic Awareness Curriculum, as well as Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See. Jessica also holds her certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), making her an ideal educator for students and families across multilingual backgrounds.
Additionally, Jessica has been teaching SAT reading, writing, and math to high school students for over a decade, through various programs as well as privately across Long Island. Because of Jessica’s unique skill set as both a speech-language pathologist and an SAT instructor, Jessica is uniquely qualified to teach neurotypical students and students with learning differences (i.e., Executive Functioning Disorders, ADD/ADHD, etc.) in their study skills and test preparation for their future educational endeavors. Jessica herself scored in the 99th percentile for the SATs, allowing her to attend the University of Pittsburgh on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa (top 2% of the university).
Fun facts about Jessica: Jessica and her family toured 28 colleges before deciding to attend the University of Pittsburgh (Hail to Pitt!) When at Pitt, she studied abroad in Rome, which entailed eating pizza three to four times daily. A lifelong Italophile and Francophile, Jessica graduated with degrees in French and Italian Languages and Literatures. When she’s not teaching, Jessica can be found trying to locate New York’s closest replica of her Nonna’s pizza, while plotting her next transatlantic flight.
