About Vanessa


Bio

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 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!

Great tutor

Vanessa was able to quickly assess my son's level of understanding and hone in fast on his areas needing improvement. Very helpful prior to his exam and was able to help in ways that I couldn't.
