All of Jill’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Jill’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ADD/ADHD

I have a current California multiple subject teaching credential. I have taught in California for 22 years in the Palmdale School District, and 3 additional years as a substitute teacher and a tutor. I have attended school district offered inservices on teaching students with special needs. I have been responsible for teaching all subjects to students with ADHD and ADD. I have had success with these students.

Some of the techniques I have used with success include providing structured, predictable procedures, give positive feedback often, focus on the student's strengths, redirect student's nonproductive behaviors, provide one-on-one instruction, break assignments down into smaller, achievable tasks, adjust the number of problems/activities to be completed, use different modalities for learning.

CBEST

I have taken the CBEST test and passed the first time I took it. I have been actively involved in education for decades in the Antelope valley. Consequently, I have kept abreast of current teaching pedegogies and the skills needed to pass the CBEST test. I am already certified in STUDY SKILLS through WyzAnt. I feel that knowledge and experience of teaching study skills methods and my extensive experience with current teaching practices and pedagogy could qualify me as certified in teaching CBEST test preparation.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a multiple subject clear California teaching credential. I have taught all subjects to students grades K through sixth. I have taught language arts,which includes reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I have also taught math, including number sense(place value, rounding,etc.), adding, subtracting, multiplying, and division. I have taught problem solving(word problems), geometry, measurement, and algebra.

Additionally, I have taught science, including geology, botany, marine biology, ecology, the periodic table of elements(chemistry), and the scientific process. While teaching social studies I have covered subjects such as geography and maps, history (Antelope valley, world, ancient, U.S.), and cultural awareness.

ESL/ESOL

I have been trained to teach English as a second language. I have a Clear CLAD (Crosscutural, Language and Academic Development) Certificate. I took courses and a test to obtain this certificate. I have taught second language learners for 15 years and have developed effective, yet fun, techniques, to promote language learning for all students.

Additionally, I have TESOL/TEFL/ESL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages/Teaching English as a Foreign Language/Teaching English as a Second Language)certification. I achieved this by attending and passing an Oxford Seminar course. This course included 60 hours of training which included: lesson planning, classroom management techniques, skills development(grammar, pronunciation, listening, speaking, reading, and writing), teaching strategies, teaching multi-level classes, and a teaching practicum.

Phonics

I have a current California Teaching Credential. I have taught in California puplic schools for 22 years. I have taught all grades k-8. I taught 3rd grade for six years. During those six years I became especially experienced in teaching phonics. I became of aware of difficulties students tend to have with English phonics and utilized successful strategies to help them overcome difficulties and excel in phonics.

Besides the training I received as a credential student, I have attended many inservices as a teacher over the decades and have kept abreast of new techniques and procedures to help students learn phonics.

Prealgebra

I have taken and taught many prealgebra courses. I have taken and passed with 100% the Wyzant prealgebra test for certification in this subject. I know how to start with determining where students are "stuck" and get them through this, and/or continue on with the subject from the point they are at and help them excel at comprehending prealgebra vital concepts.

Study Skills

I have a current Clear Multiple Subject California Teaching Credential. I have taught in public education for more than 20 years. My school stressed the importance of study skills and AVID training, which specifically addresses study skills, was utilized there. As a classroom teacher I have always addressed this very essential component to student success.
