About Jae-Young

I have a bachelors degree in Spanish and Masters degree in Education/Teaching with a specialization in teaching Spanish and ESL. I have taught as a Spanish language teacher for Chesterfield County Public Schools for the past six years, where I've facilitated learning for high school students of diverse backgrounds. I've integrated technology, researched-based teaching strategies, and student relevance into lessons designed to assist students acquire speaking, listening, reading, writing skills, and also language study skills.

In addition, I have worked as a tutor of Spanish and ESL for both children and adult students for many years. What I love most or find most rewarding about tutoring is seeing immediate and direct results that come from working in an individual or small group class setting. With this type of setting, the tutor can more effectively assess the student's level and needs, thereby creating an instruction or tutoring style that suits the individual student best.

I look forward to meeting with you to help you develop your language skills and feel more confident when communicating.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 over five years working experience tutoring students of various backgrounds whose first language is not English. Additionally, I graduated from a Master of Teaching program specializing in Spanish as well as ESL education to both children and adults.

Grammar

Grammar in both English and Spanish languages is an essential part of my teaching expertise as both a Spanish and ESL teacher and tutor. Grammar has been used as a building block to my lessons and tutorial sessions to expand communications such as with writing or speaking.

Reading

Reading is another essential language-building part of my lessons and tutorial sessions as a former teacher. In my graduate studies, reading comprehension in content areas (such as math, science, etc.) was an integral part of the program, and I've used these research-based techniques in my years as a former teacher.

Spanish

I have over five years working experience tutoring Spanish to both children and adults. Additionally, I obtained a degree majoring in Spanish as well as a graduate degree with the Master of Teaching program specializing in Spanish as well as ESL education to both children and adults.

Knowledgeable, patient and flat out amazing!

My time spent with Jae-Young has been extremely helpful and productive! She's very flexible with regards to scheduling, which is especially important to me as my work schedule can be demanding. Her flexibility extends beyond scheduling, as she's also flexible with regards to topics discussed during our tutoring session. I have a Spanish background so trying to teach me the language can be a little
