As a New York State Level III Teaching Assistant with over 8 years of experience working in a progressive elementary school, I have solid first-hand experience effectively implementing project based pedagogy into the classroom, and in one-on-one and small group settings. I believe in getting to know the whole child—meeting the children where they are in their social-emotional and academic development—and adapting my teaching methods to their personal learning style and abilities, while structuring lessons that are both engaging and enriching.

I love teaching Math, and I am very enthusiastic about it! I am skilled in finding creative ways of teaching Math, keeping students engaged, as I build from what they know, and adapt to how they learn or make sense of numbers. I often tell students, “Math is like a puzzle—just have to find that missing piece!“

I believe Science is all around us. I believe in the need for the children to explore and discover the world around them through experiential experiences. I use project based learning to engage children in Science through what interests them, while also providing them with the resources and support needed to grasp and retain important scientific facts to better understand the world around them. In essence, I like to compliment the students own curiosity with concrete facts and knowledge of scientific concepts.

I am a native English and Spanish speaker, educated in a bilingual elementary school, with well-developed verbal and written skills in both languages. I have also learned other languages—Italian, Quichua and Mixteco—so I understand the challenges of acquiring new languages, as a child and as an adult, and becoming fluent in them. In the process of learning these languages, I have learned varied language acquisition techniques, which I now use un teaching these languages to others. I am fascinated by languages, but most importantly, by the people that speak them.

Italian,

Italian

I have studied Italian since Middle School and into High School. In High School I passed the Italian Regents Exam with a 98%. A few years after that, I spent three and a half years completely immersed in the Italian language and culture through a volunteer work, where I attended meetings and conducted courses in that language. As a multilingual foreign language learner and instructor, I have acquired many practical foreign language learning techniques that have proven to be effective, and that I now pass on to other language learners.
Spanish

Spanish

As an Ecuadorian-American and English and Spanish native speaker, I grew up speaking and living the best of both worlds. Most of my elementary school education was in a bilingual school, where I learned to read and write in both languages, which has helped me have well-developed writing skills in both languages. As a foreign language learner myself--learning Italian, Quichua and Mixteco--I have also been on the other side of the table, and have learned different and innovative techniques for learning languages, which I now use in teaching others, while adapting to the different learning styles of my students. My passion for languages helps me deliver instruction with enthusiasm and creativity, enhancing the learning experience for the language learners.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NYS Level III Teaching Assistant with over 8 years of experience implementing progressive pedagogical strategies at the elementary school level, working with children from PreK to 5th grade. I am passionate about students being active learners, and structure my lessons to be adaptive to the students' natural curiosity with experiential and expeditionary activities that support their academic and social-emotional development. With clear objectives in mind, I encourage learner autonomy--making room for students to have a say in their learning, make choices and develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills by reflecting on their learning experience (weaknesses and strengths), and working together on strategies that will continue to elevate their performance and deepen their understanding. In order to ensure the best experience for my students, I strive to maintain an environment that's both caring and engaging.

Elementary Math

As a New York City Department of Education Paraprofessional, working over eight years in a progressive elementary school, I am very skilled in finding creative ways of approaching hard mathematical concepts with visuals, hands-on and fun innovative activities, adapting to the learning styles of each of my students. I am very excited about numbers, and often tell my students "Math is like a puzzle-- just have to find that missing piece!" I am very patient and working at their pace, building from what they already know to help them acquire and grasp new concepts, while keeping them engaged and invested. This enhances their learning experience, with exceptional outcomes.
Elementary Science

Elementary Science

Working for over 8 years in a progressive elementary school, I have experience with project base learning, where students get to explore their interests while learning about science, and many other subjects, in a very personalized manner. Through research, creative planning and hands-on activities, I support children in learning and strengthening esencial scientific concepts through a much more engaging and enriched experience. I work in close collaboration with other educators to ensure students have basic scientific understandings appropriate to where they are in their development.

Very sweet and patient

My son just experienced a traumatic event in his life, losing his grandmother. Jessica was so kind and patient. Although we were unable to proceed with the lesson, I loved her approach with him.

Great First Session

Mia liked Jessica, I know because I could hear her laugh and she was talkative. When her session finished she said she understood a bit more. That is PROGRESS HERE! Thanks Jessica!

Knowledgeable, patient and creative tutor!

Jessica has been such a blessing. In only two sessions my sixth grader is more confident and for the first time ever, excited about Math. So glad we found Jessica.
