My name is Jessica Gonzalez and I grew up in New York City; born to a Puerto Rican and Dominican family. At the age of 8 years old, I began studying theatre and performed at the Duke Theatre on Times Square at 11 years old. I went on to study the dramatic arts at Talent Unlimited High School for the Performing Arts. While attending university, I studied Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese as well American Sign Language; worked in a ABA research lab, and fenced for 3 years. Upon graduating, I made the world my classroom and took off to learn.
My work is inspired by the desire to help build a world in which people better understand each other and themselves. I have written articles on self-analysis, language learning, travel, and communication science. After graduating college, I published my first children’s book titled Luna, Yes! Luna ¡Sí! a semi autobiographical story about two sisters as told through the eyes of the oldest sister about her younger sister being on the Autism Spectrum.
Since then, I have worked with local bookstores; hosting story time events and helping build the writers community. I have worked with Level Up NYC, Word Up Bookstore, Strive Higher NYC, and Kaleidoscope Vibrations LLC.
In the language and education field, I have taught English in Chile for 4 months in 2019; helping local communities and hosting events. I have taught English on VIP Kid for 2 years and counting! Another platform that I teach language instruction on Century Bridge (2021-Present). I also teach private English courses (information in the English courses page). Private academic tutoring is offered under services on my website and you can find it under my private academic tutoring page!
I am currently running my own private tutoring sessions, partnering with a number of academic tutoring and English education platforms. I am also in the process of a number of projects in the art and science field that will be updated on here on my website!
