Jessica Mean, M.A.

Mathematics Lecturer

“I am interested in ​how peer motivation can help motivate students in a mathematics classroom. I am also interested in how embedded support such as peer tutors and mentors affect students’ academic performance.”


Jessica Mean​ ​received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in mathematics at Cal State Monterey Bay and received her Master’s degree in mathematics at San Jose State University. She frequently teaches elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, and college algebra. Her mathematics teaching style focuses on intensive group work and class presentations with an emphasis on having embedded support in the classroom. Jessica Mean also has research interests for combinatorics and topological graph theory.
