About Jessica

I have a master's degree in Spanish Linguistics and as such, I believe that a teacher has to customize his/her teaching methods according to the student needs. The learning process is successful when the student is engaged and motivated in learning. My way of teaching not only helps the student to learn a language, but also to be aware on how languages function in general, that is, how the brain works in order to communicate through language. By this method. the student is more open to welcome a new language instead of struggling in learning a structure (vocabulary and grammar) that is too foreign to grasp. As a student of foreign languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French and Italian) I have incorporated in my teaching the methods I found being the most effective in order to provide a pleasant environment for learning.

As a native Spanish speaker (I am from Peru) and a resident of NY, I have knowledge of the different spoken Spanish dialects which I incorporate in my teaching as a way to let the student know that there are different ways of saying things depending from where is the person to whom you speak. However, the language to be taught and spoken in class is the standard Spanish, which is the one taught in textbooks and understood by all in the Spanish speaking world.

I am also a Spanish editor who can help Spanish major college students to improve their writing skills and edit their essays or theses.

If you need tutoring in Spanish, from intermediate to advanced levels I am available preferably on weekends. I can also be available only during evenings on weekdays. For more information, please contact me.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Spanish

I have a master's degree in Spanish linguistics. I have tutored high school students in the past and can help you with homework and provide strategies to make the experience of language learning enjoyable instead of being a struggle.
