Struggling in Spanish language acquisition, English as a Second Language, Social Sciences, or Language Arts and Literature? You've come to the right place! I'm now accepting students who want a little extra help before finals hit them or keep their skills sharp over the summer.

Hello! My name is Jessica W. I have been tutoring and teaching for approximately four years in the classroom, as well as as a private tutor. I am a community college professor of Spanish and political science. I have an educational background in Political Science, History, Spanish, and Latin American Studies, as well as English as a Second Language (ESL) from Miami University (Oxford, OH), where I earned my B.A., and the University of Chicago, where I received my M.A.

My teaching expertise encompasses bilingual (English and Spanish) elementary subjects, social sciences (history, politics/government, geography), language arts and literature, including ESL, and Spanish language acquisition. I regularly work with diverse individuals both from the U.S. and abroad.

I have a great passion for learning and believe that with the right approach everyone can excel at a subject and I strongly advocate a student-centered approach to learning. My experiences both as a student and teacher's assistant in the classroom have given me a unique perspective on how to make the material easier for students to understand. Now as a professor, I regularly adjust how I approach the subjects that I teach so that my students find the information fun, accessible, and engaging.

Social Studies

I have a degree in Political Science and Latin American Studies from Miami University as well as a degree in Latin American Studies with specialization in sociology and political science from the University of Chicago. In addition to my academic qualifications, I have also taught and tutored social studies (U.S. and world history, geography, anthropology/cultural studies) in a bilingual context. In order to teach in a bilingual context, I have developed my own curriculum and seek to adopt as many resources from movies, textbooks, as well as incorporate cultural studies into the study of history and geography.


I have a B.A. Latin American Studies with minor in Spanish, a B.A. Diplomacy and Foreign Affairs with minor in History, and an M.A. Latin American Studies with accreditation in Spanish and Social Network Analysis.
