My name is Jess Beeson. I am the Founder/Head Teacher at Willow Tree Tutoring, LLC. I have been with my husband for 18 years this year and married for 12. We have a beautiful five-year-old daughter and 2 cats.
After receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree in Middle School English Education from Lindenwood University, I spent 8 years in the public school system before starting my tutoring company in 2012. I combined my training, experiences, and knowledge to design and develop the educational program and philosophy that make up the the foundation of Willow Tree. This practice 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 foundation for a brighter future!
I have had the privilege to work with Jessica and Willow Tree for over four years now and help students of all ages grow and feel more confident in themselves and their work. I come from a math background before switching to an engineering major at Saint Louis University. I graduated with my Master of Science in Engineering in 2020 just after starting my journey with Willow Tree. In the time since I have joined I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet a number of bright students ranging from high school freshmen all the way up to current Master's candidates all of whom have been a pleasure to work with. I predominantly help students with various math and science topics such as algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, chemistry, and physics. I enjoy displaying my enthusiasm for these topics and try to focus on showing students how to gain deeper problem solving skills, critical thinking, and develop stronger connections between the different topics that they learn to help prepare them for a lifetime of learning. My biggest goal when working with students is to inspire them to find what they are passionate about, work hard towards that passion, and ultimately help them build confidence in themselves to reach out and seize their best future.
I have always looked forward to teaching my kids to get back up and stay positive through every educational struggle. I love knowing I am a positive light during our times together. I make sure to remind them everyday that negativity does not define who you are. My background in tutoring has a wide variety of subjects. I have worked with children at Heritage Christian Academy. I am experienced in many subjects such as English, speech/communication, history, algebra 1 & 2, biology, and physical science. As well as Spanish, German, bible studies, and music theory (piano/singing). My favorite age group to work with is Elementary age students. It makes my heart happy to see the impact I am making on them at such a young age. I look forward to working along side you and your child!
