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.
