About Jill

I am excellent in tutoring math, science, and English to all levels of students, age four to college. I have a graduate engineering degree with technical professional experience.

I apply an analytic approach in a format adaptive to the student's learning style and ability. I help students develop learning skills and test taking techniques for life-long benefit. I enjoy working with students and seeing their success resulting from their efforts and my expertise.

I also enjoy sharing my linguistic expertise by teaching Chinese to all levels of students - beginners to business executives. Being multilingual personally, I am passionate about language learning and have an in-depth understanding of transitioning among languages. Business executives can benefit from my experience in Chinese cultural, business, and professional protocols, in addition to the language.

I have taught children swimming before they could walk, some progressed to high school varsity swimmers with lifelong athletic abilities, healthy physiques and positive outlook for life.

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.
