About Vanessa

I have a BA in History from The College of New Jersey (2006) and have been a social studies teacher for the last 10 years. As a teacher with 10 years of public school experience, I take great pleasure in helping students gain an understanding of a variety of concepts. I have tutored social studies (specifically history, geography, and civics) and language arts (specifically vocabulary acquisition, reading comprehension, and essay writing) for over five years to middle and high school students within and outside of my school district.

I've been teaching 7th and 8th grade history for 10 years in an urban public school and absolutely love my job. I've taught civics, ancient history, U.S. History I (foundation - Civil War), U.S. History II (Reconstruction - Present), and Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Additionally, the district I work for follows the LEADS (Literacy is Essential for Adolescent Development and Success) curriculum which focuses on infusing language arts into other subjects. For this reason, I have taught a variety of essay writing classes as well. I've taught essay writing in my history classes for 10 years.

My goal is not only to get you to understand social studies, but to get you to love it!

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.

Social Studies

I've taught 7th and 8th grade social studies for 10 years. While my BA is in history, I've taught a variety of courses which fall under the umbrella of social studies, including American and ancient history, geography, civics, and economics.

Spanish

I'm a native Spanish speaker who took Spanish in high school and did a study abroad college program in Spain. I also currently do all the translation for the school I work at as a social studies teacher.

I spend a great amount of time teaching writing in my social studies classes. I focus on persuasive, argumentative, and expository writing.
