Jordan grew up on the Southern California coast, where she spent most of her time on the beach with a book in her hands. She moved across the country to pursue her B.A. in English at Boston University. After graduating summa cum laude and receiving BU’s College Prize for Excellence in English, Jordan spent several years working as faculty assistant to a world-renowned educational theorist at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Inspired by her work at Harvard, Jordan decided to return to BU to pursue her PhD in English and American Literature, with a focus on Early American Literature as it relates to the French, American, and Haitian revolutions. She is currently working on research projects that explore the significance of anonymity in early Black print culture.
While at BU, Jordan worked as a Student Ambassador for the Center for Educational Resources and volunteered as an Academic Peer Mentor. During her junior year, Jordan studied abroad in Paris, France. While in Paris, she interned at a community center in the onzième (11th arrondissement), at which she tutored adults and children in English and French. In these roles, Jordan developed an appreciation for the vast array of learning styles her students’ brought to the table and a passion for helping each student find their own way to success. With Cambridge Coaching, Jordan specializes in supporting students in expository writing, creative writing, English and literature, and English as a Second Language.
When she’s not hitting the books, Jordan enjoys going for walks along the Charles River, listening to music, and spending time with friends.
