Naperville Woman-Owned Business Continues Legacy After 30 Years Of Success
Naperville, IL – The woman-owned and highly successful Naperville tutoring firm WSEA Tutoring (originally known as West Suburban Educational Associates) recently announced that co-founder and long-time owner Camille Jones has stepped down, after 30 years at the helm. The torch has been passed down to Jennifer Bredberg, WSEA Tutoring’s Secondary Director since 2013.
Camille Jones commented, “It is important that the person in the leadership position is first, a great teacher. Secondly, the person needs to be a highly ethical person possessing a commitment to providing quality, compassionate instruction to students. Jennifer is all of this and more.”
Diane Nelson, who currently works with elementary students at WSEA, will remain in the role of Elementary Director of grades K-5. Nelson holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a Master of Education in interdisciplinary studies in curriculum and instruction. She taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in nearby Wheaton before joining WSEA.
Jennifer Bredberg will become WSEA Tutoring’s sole owner as Camille Jones moves into an advisory role to the business. “I am also pleased that a business that was started by women is passed on to a woman,” said Camille Jones. Bredberg taught Language Arts for several years in middle school and has a BA in English and a Master of Education with a secondary certification in English and social science.
Bredberg commented, “We have touched the lives of hundreds of children and families as a result of good leadership, dedication, and showing a love and passion for working with children. We will miss Camille and wish her the best – but we’re also excited to continue our mission to change students’ lives in the years ahead. It is a privilege and an honor to continue in her footsteps.”
“In thirty years there have been a great many changes in Naperville, in the schools and in education” said Camille Jones. Indeed, their broad range of creative and effective programming has helped WSEA thrive through the toughest economic climate. The firm currently boasts a staff of nearly 15 certified, experienced elementary teachers and experts in secondary education.
“We have adapted to changes while adhering to our commitment to provide individual educational plans for our students to empower them to achieve their best and develop a life-long love of learning. It has been my privilege and joy to work in Naperville and serve Naperville families.” – Camille Jones
