About Jill

I am a licensed elementary teacher and have been teaching for 24 years. I really enjoy working with students to strengthen their skills. Confidence, I believe, is a huge factor in a child's success in school. I have tutored on and off throughout the years as my family life permits it. I continue to tutor because I love to give children the one on one attention they might need and don't always get in the school setting. I like to learn through games and fun activities and am a creative and flexible instructor. I love watching kids become life long learners!

I have a BS in English from UNC. I have been teaching reading, grammar, and vocabulary for the past 24 years.

I would love to meet with you and discuss how I might be able to support growth and strengthen skills in any areas you may need it. A good personal connection is key to a tutoring success!

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 been teaching handwriting for the past 24 years in the public schools. I have taught bothe manuscript and cursive. Handwriting Without Tears is the most recent curriculum I have used.

I have had extensive instruction in teaching phonics and phonemic awareness over the past 24 years. I taught first grade for 20 of those years in which I taught phonics daily.

I have taken several study skills courses as a student and have reviewed them recently when I taught them to my teenage son. Things like two column notes, highlighting, and notecards are some of the most used forms of study skills I have used.
