About Jesse

I am a Harvard graduate student, a published author, and a fluent speaker and writer of Spanish. As a Fulbright scholar, I spent 2015 teaching English in Uruguay, South America, where I trained with top local teachers and worked with the U.S. Embassy to create new course offerings in public schools.

I have private tutoring and classroom experience at every grade level, from elementary school through college. I specialize in Spanish language and literature, English writing and reading, and GRE test prep.

Throughout 2015 I worked as a Fulbright English teacher in Montevideo, Uruguay. While abroad I completed English teacher training at the 2015 Fulbright Regional Enhancement Seminar in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

I have four years of experience as a private English tutor: with PJL Educational Services in New York, at Tulane University in New Orleans, and at IAVA High School in Montevideo. My experience as an ESL tutor includes Delgado Community College in New Orleans and Liceo IAVA in Montevideo. As a high school student, I completed the AP and IB English curricula, and later scored a 168 (98th percentile) on the verbal section of the GRE.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Spanish language and literature from Tulane University, where I graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA.

As a former Fulbright grant recipient in Uruguay, I am fluent in the Spanish language and a skilled writer. I have four years of experience as a private Spanish tutor: with PJL Educational Services in NY and at Tulane University in New Orleans. In addition to studying at the University of the Republic of Uruguay, I have also conducted Spanish-language research at the University of Havana, Cuba, which was later published in the peer-reviewed journal, "Cuba in Transition." I have firsthand experience with the Spanish curricula of the U.S. school system, from middle school through college, including AP and IB Spanish.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience teaching ESL in the U.S. and abroad, to adults and youths. As a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Uruguay, I taught English composition, grammar, and phonetics to college students. At Delgado Community College in New Orleans, I taught ESL writing and grammar to foreign-born adult students.

Spanish

I hold a Bachelors degree in Spanish language and literature from Tulane and studied at the University of Havana, Cuba. I worked last year as a Fulbright scholar in Montevideo, Uruguay and have been tutoring Spanish for four years, at the middle school, high school, and college levels. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree at Harvard.
