About Gillian

My name is Gillian. I was born in the UK but have spent my formative years in the US (Northern California specifically). I have just under a decade of teaching and tutoring experience in a variety of capacities and earned my TESOL certificate in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I have taught at an orphanage, NGOs, international schools while tutoring native English speakers and EFL students.

Over the last decade, I have a wide array of experiences that I think would lend to being a good fit as a tutor for you. Outside of my professional experience, I graduated University of California, Santa Cruz with two bachelor degrees. I received high marks for both of my degrees, and love helping students of all ages reach their academic goals.

I love working with students all over the world--partially because their determination inspires me, but mainly because I believe that as I teach I am learning! I love making classes fun, and my creative methods are proven to be successful!

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.

I have a TESOL certificate from Language Corps, USA. I have tutored students while they prepare for the IELTS exam, and have access to the official preparation work.

After I earned both of my Bachelor Degrees, I was the Director of a national progressive political consulting firm in which I trained hundreds of public speakers and community organizers using a variety of training methods. I also have tutored several clients before their public speaking tasks.
