She is a certified teacher with the State of Missouri who received her Bachelor's Degree in Middle School English Education from Lindenwood University. She has tutored a wide variety of subjects over the past 12 years and has developed the program that makes up the foundation of Willow Tree's philosophy.

    Because we believe so strongly in what we do and are so passionate about helping kids and adults of all ages, when you call us, we start you out with a FREE consultation and assessment. That's right! There is NO EXTRA COST to have your student's academic, social, and cognitive skills personally assessed by the President and Head Teacher herself, Jessica Beeson.

     

    Willow Tree provides one-on-one in-home tutoring to help build the fundamental skills and educational benchmarks that can often get left behind in today's crowded school system. From teaching new skill sets, to test prep, and basic organizational techniques, we help students catch up and get ahead in school. Along with forming and strengthening each student's academic capabilities, we also provide encouragement and continuous positive feedback to assist students in building their self-confidence. Since every session is tailored to meet the needs of each student, parents can feel confident that their child is receiving a well-rounded, supportive and inspirational experience from our tutors at Willow Tree.

  • WHO WE ARE

    JESSICA BEESON

    OWNER/HEAD TEACHER

    Hello!

    My name is Jessica Beeson and I am the Owner/Head Teacher at Willow Tree Tutoring, LLC. I have been with my husband for ten years this year and married for three. We have two adorable fur babies at home and are looking forward to expanding our family in the future.

    I have been tutoring a wide variety of subjects and ages since I was in high school and after receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree in Middle School English Education from Lindenwood University, I began looking for a teaching position. I looked at public schools, private schools, and charter schools, but none of them felt right. That's when I began making a list of what I wanted in an educational program and developed the philosophy that combines academics, stress management, self-confidence, organizational and test taking skills all into one, personalized, efficient and successful program. I look forward to helping you and your family live better, happier lives while building your foundations for a brighter future!

     

     

    KARA ZONIES

    While education is my passion it took me a while to pursue it. My first couple jobs I was a Department Manager and an Executive Professional Representative but that could not stop the idea of me wanting to change my career to education. I knew Education was the right path for me because it would challenge my abilities to coach individuals and help them gain their true potential. I light up at the thought of teaching others and sharing new knowledge. My passion has always been in teaching and working with others to become more knowledgeable. I have a skill to adapt any information to any skill level allowing me to teach and work with any age level. I grew up in a family who had a strong background in education as well as got some personal and professional experience in my jobs. I have past experience teaching and coaching a variety of different staff members. This has also given me the opportunity to bring in real life examples into my teachings. This way I can relate more to students and learners. I look forward to working with you and your child and guiding them into all the potential they are capable of.

  • HEAR WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

    These are just a few of the testimonials from our very happy clients...

    From J. Grosman:

    Parent of Middle School Student.

    Chesterfield, MO

     

    "We are clients of Willow Tree Tutoring​ and the owner Jess Beeson​ is a top notch person!  She truly cares for each and every child as they are her own kids.  We were having problems with our son who has ADHD.  The public school system is not for everyone and if you don't fit their mold you get left out.  We learned so much about the rights we have as parents when it comes to the IEP meetings that schools have with the parents.  It was shocking the information that Willow Tree Tutoring brought to our attention and how we are able to use that information to advocate for our son.   The last item I wanted to address is we have decided to move our son to a home school specifically for children with ADHD.  Jess Beeson sat at my kitchen table for 2 hours giving us all kinds of questions to ask to the home school teacher to make sure we chose the right schooling program for our son.  She and her company care so much for the kids they work with.  There is not another place like it out there in mine and my families opinion that do what they do."  

     

    From Gina Weinand

    Parent of a College Nursing Student

    O'Fallon, MO

     

    I just want to say how grateful I am to Willow Tree Tutoring and Jess Beeson! She was such a lifesaver to me and my daughter. I belong to O Fallon All Stars with Jess and listen to her talk of her tutoring and helping young students, high school students and kids prepare for ACT tests. My kids are College kids, out of high school. My daughter Sarah had graduated with honors from High School and received a scholarschip to UMSL into the nursing program. She then proceeded to graduate with Honors with a BSN in nursing. She excelled in school. Well next up came the Boards. Sarah had to pass the boards to receive her actual nursing license. No big deal, she graduated with honors, this is just one test. She took the prep classes and I thought was ready to go. Took the test, Fail. A few months later, tried again and Fail. After the 2nd Fail she was pretty upset, she always excelled. She tried on line prep courses, studied really hard and went for the 3rd time and again Failed. By this time she was very upset and was thinking she was not going to be able to be a nurse. I decided to talk to Jess to see if she could help a Nursing graduate with a Boards exam. She said she could. Sarah was just as happy to meet with Jess. They met a couple days a week and Jess was AWESOME! She gave Sarah a game plan, a study plan and over the course of two months they worked together and prepared for the dreaded boards. I am happy to report that thanks to Jess help, Sarah was able to face the test and PASS no more fails and is now living her dream. She received a job at the hospital within walking distance to her home and is so happy! I don’t know if she would have made it without the boost, the support and help she received from Jess and Willow Tree Tuturing. So no matter what stage, age or where you are in your learning, if you are struggling, CALL JESS!! She can help!!

     

    A very happy mom!!

  • FEATURED AUTHOR:

    Diane Ackerman

    A true story—as powerful as Schindler's List—in which the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands.

    When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw—and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. Another dozen "guests" hid inside the Zabinskis' villa, emerging after dark for dinner, socializing, and, during rare moments of calm, piano concerts. Jan, active in the Polish resistance, kept ammunition buried in the elephant enclosure and stashed explosives in the animal hospital. Meanwhile, Antonina kept her unusual household afloat, caring for both its human and its animal inhabitants—otters, a badger, hyena pups, lynxes.

    With her exuberant prose and exquisite sensitivity to the natural world, Diane Ackerman engages us viscerally in the lives of the zoo animals, their keepers, and their hidden visitors. She shows us how Antonina refused to give in to the penetrating fear of discovery, keeping alive an atmosphere of play and innocence even as Europe crumbled around her. 8 pages of illustrations.
