About Jess

Learning has always been my passion, and teaching is what I love doing!

I teach ESL in a school in San Diego and I have experience with study abroad programs. I have a total of 10 years of teaching experience. I've tutored honors program students and high school / college preparation writing classes. The success of my students is my goal.
I taught English as a second language for 4 years in Brazil, and I worked with all age groups. I had a special class with the computer programmers from HSBC bank there. I also taught English in a private school from first grade to high school. I love seeing a student making progress and becoming independent in a subject.

Here in the U.S. I worked as a tutor in before and after school programs, helping the students with homework and projects. I planned educational activities as well. In college, I always finished the semesters with honors, and was recognized through scholarships and nominations.
I love cooking and I have experience as a cooking instructor for children, a fun project for home-schooled kids!

I believe learning should be fun and that each student has a different pace and way to achieve his potential. I like customizing my classes according to their needs and make it an enjoyable experience.
I speak Portuguese, English, and intermediate French (my new passion), and I love traveling and learning about cultures. I believe that learning is a process that should never end!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

I love cooking and it is definitely one of my passions! I worked at Young Chefs Academy in Virginia for a year and half as instructor, and I've also taught summer cooking camps. I also worked at another YCA branch in Tampa last year. Birthday parties were a hit on the weekends!

The students not only learned about cooking, but also applying math in the kitchen, maintaining good eating habits and developing social skills.

My tutoring would be great for the home schooled kids who look for an exciting way to learn how to cook or for the boys/girls scouts who need to earn a cooking badge!

ESL/ESOL

I'm from Brazil and when I lived there I was an ESL teacher for four years.
I received a lot of training from excellent professionals, and participated in many workshops as well. I taught children, teenagers, and adults. I also had two classes with computer programers from HSBC bank in the South of Brazil. I may not be a native speaker but I strongly believe that a language teacher needs to understand the process of learning a second language in order to comprehend the students' needs. Here in the U.S. I participated in a TESOL/TESL teacher training certification course given by Oxford Seminars.
