I am a former college instructor with ten years of experience teaching beginning, intermediate, and advanced Spanish language, literature, and culture. I am a native English speaker with near-native proficiency in Spanish (spoken for 25 years including one year living abroad in Spain) and a PhD in Spanish Linguistics. I have also taught courses on English writing at the college level and can help with grammar, writing structure, style, and organization, research, and using and citing sources. I also have experience teaching ESL to non-native speakers of English (speaking, listening, reading, writing, and grammar), and have taught IBT TOEFL preparation courses.

During my time as an instructor, I worked one on one with many students in order to help them with their course work and to help them learn the best way to study. I am extremely patient with beginning language learners because I know how hard the process can be, and because it is important to boost the student's confidence so he or she is better able to communicate. While learning is a serious business, I believe it is also important to have fun in the process, so I try to integrate games, songs, and the like into my lessons where appropriate. I am interested in tutoring middle school, high school, college, and adult students.

I began attending law school last fall and can also tutor for the LSAT. I received a score of 171, and I can help with any portion of the test. My approach to tutoring for the LSAT depends on the student's needs. With some students, I spent time instructing them on concepts, and with others I only worked through some sample questions and gave them advice on strategies.

I do not have access to a car, so I am limited to tutoring in Philadelphia or the nearby suburbs that are accessible by public transportation.

Jenna is really helping my son! My son has been struggling with Spanish, and was becoming increasingly frustrated with it. Jenna's kind, but firm personality is the perfect match for any child struggling in a subject. Her patience is incredible and my son is responding to her and actually learning Spanish finally! I just wish she could be his full time teacher. ...
