I graduated from the University of Washington when I was 45 years old. My BA is in women studies with an emphasis on women's health. I have been tutoring for many years at community college, the UW and privately. I have a strong background in English, writing, biology, anatomy and physiology, algebra (I received an 4.0 in precalculus, but I don't feel that I would be the best tutor in math past algebra), psychology, vocabulary, spelling, literature and study skills. I have worked with students from kindergarten to college level. I have also worked with children who have learning problems: such as ADD, ADHD and autism. I enjoy coming up with creative ideas so the student enjoys the process of learning. My three children are college graduates (son with general studies degree, daughter with history degree and another daughter with a double degree in English and Theology). My children and their friends utilized my skills in writing on a regular basis. I love teaching one on one.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have a strong background in Algebra 1 - I have either been studying the subject or teaching it for 25 years. I enjoy teaching it so much! It is fun for me.

Anatomy

Without duplicating what I just wrote about the subject of phsyology, the answer to this subject could be answered by that subject as well. I have many years of classes in anatomy and physiology as well as 3 classes in psycho-biology of women at the UW. I only claimed to of those classes on the physiology expose I just wrote, but it was a three series class. I then tutored it at the UW. I tutored A&P at South Seattle Community College through the Student Services department. I enjoy this subject with a passion and love to have the opportunity to teach it and get students excited about how bodies work.

College Counseling

I have tutored many students who are applying for college. Ken L was one of them (3 year WyzAnt student - he is a sophomore at Western University now). We spent many weeks outlining, writing, revising, editing his admissions essay. The finished product was stellar and Ken was accepted to the college of his choice. He is just one example. My experience with college counseling includes tutoring students applying for the UW nursing school, colleges, and universities for undergraduate and graduate schools. I help the student sort through their strengths and weaknesses and help them decide on the colleges that best serve their lifestyle, career choice and location. I would like to continue to do that work as I find it very rewarding.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring children in every grade in all the elementary subjects over the past 10 years. I am proficient in reading, grammar, writing, spelling, vocabulary, math, science and social studies/history. I have successfully helped each student reach his grade level or beyond. I have tutored a couple of students for their entire elementary career (They are in 2nd and 3rd grade now and I started with each of them in kindergarten). I have tutored other children for a full school year and through the summer getting their skills up to speed. I love watching the light go on when the "get" something. And it is a blessing for me to be part of their blossoming self-esteem. Can you tell? I love tutoring the young students as much as middle school, high school and college. Each have it's own unique joy.

Physiology

My BA is in Women Studies with an emphasis on women's health. I have taken anatomy and physiology twice, once many years ago and then again just recently. I received a 4.0 both times. I have tutored A&P for many years after that through the college student services department. I have also taken Psycho-biology of women I and II at the UW...I also tutored this class the next quarter. The human body and how it works are my favorite subjects to learn about and teach. I have been a doula for 30 years and because of that I wanted to know everything I could about how the body works. I know that being a doula seems to mean that I was only concerned with the birthing process, but that is not true. It only served to deepen my quest for as much information I could get about how the male and female bodies operate.

Social Studies

I graduated from the University of Washington when I was 45 years old. My BA is in women studies. I have been tutoring students in elementary, middle school and high school social studies classes for 10+ years. I enjoy it very much. I find it easy to teach these current event and history classes. I enjoy teaching about the different cultures in the world and how interconnected we are globally. I have been known to make each sub subject under the social studies umbrella easy to understand. I use mnemonics to help students memorize dates and chronological events.
Thank you.
Jill J.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring students in Middle School, High School, and college for the past 10 years. I have recently studied a specific program which is high on giving the student specific actions to use to improve their skill. As well as that, the program is low on difficulty or tons of homework assignments. It is methodical and helps make beneficial changes in the way the student studies.

Fantastic Professional Tutor — Jill provided me with the help I needed to complete my last English class. I discovered I was missing some really basic skills, and she patiently and strategically worked with me on improving my writing skills. I was very anxious about this and was able to calm down through her taking the time to understand how I process information. If you are an adult or a younger student, please contact Jill. ...
