My name is Jillian H. and I'm finishing up my first year at Christopher Newport University this Spring. I'm a Communications Major here at CNU, but I'm actually in the MAT program in hopes to get my Master's of Education so to become an elementary school teacher. I'm highly involved on campus: I played the flute in CNU's marching band and even traveled to this year's New Year's parade in London with them. I'm a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha and work with our philanthropy director with helping increase Breast Cancer Awareness and Education. I am a Younglife leader here, which is a youth ministry directed at high school students. I'm currently in contact with a publisher about my first novel, which is helping me reach my dream of becoming an author. In Communications studies I'm focusing on Interpersonal Relations, like public speaking, rhetoric, debate, and generalized human communications, along with my minor in Psychology.
I've had experience being a tutor when I was in high school as I tutored English and Spanish students. I've also helped with SAT prep and have made a lesson plan and taught a class for a former teacher at my high school. I was on Yearbook staff in high school and therefore can spot a grammatical error a mile away. I was also on the Academic Team, which greatly enhanced the knowledge needed for SATs, SOLs, and AP exams. My tutoring methods vary by students as I'll need to identify the specific areas of need in each individual. I'm always patient, and as long as the student is willing to learn I'll be there to assist.
