Hello, my name is Jill and I have been teaching children for over 10 years. I am certified to teach elementary education in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I am also state certified to teach Social Studies in New Jersey. I have taught both Kindergarten and Second Grade and have worked with students from the ages of 2 through 12th grade as either a tutor, a substitute, or an associate teacher. I 'd like to share with you some of my teaching methods and beliefs.
Teaching for me is a passion. It is something I truly enjoy and it shows in my teaching. My teaching style is to make learning fun whenever possible. I believe in looking for creative and interactive ways to teach my students so that learning comes alive for them. I find that this not only makes learning more fun, but it decreases distractions and fosters a lifelong love of learning.
Students learn in different ways and it is my job to find out how your child learns best. As a tutor, I make it a part of my job to find the best way to get the material across to your child. Learning is an individualized exercise, no one style of teaching works for all.
Lastly, to have a successful teacher-student relationship requires communication between the parents, the tutor, and the student. Without this critical role I find students are less successful. As a tutor, I make sure that the lines of communication remain open and we discuss progress, areas of difficulty and concern, and achievements regularly. This helps keep everyone on the same page and involved in making our sessions more productive.
I look forward to meeting you and your child so we can begin on a great adventure!
