About Jill


Bio

I have always had a love for learning. As a summa cum laude graduate with a bachelor’s degree in English, I have always known that hard work is essential to success. I won several awards in college for outstanding achievement for a student majoring in English. After college, I enjoyed a career as Director of Operations and later Director of HR with a successful communications company.

I have always had a love for learning. As a summa cum laude graduate with a bachelor’s degree in English, I have always known that hard work is essential to success. I won several awards in college for outstanding achievement for a student majoring in English. After college, I enjoyed a career as Director of Operations and later Director of HR with a successful communications company. The skills I learned in the corporate world have helped me in my teaching career today. Currently, as a Computer Explorer teacher, teacher’s assistant and tutor I have been able to help countless children improve their academic skills and spark in them that same love for learning that I have. I also have two wonderful children of my own, ages 9 and 12, and it has been wonderful watching them grow as students as well.

I specialize in tutoring English and Math. I am also available to tutor Social Studies and Science. I have experience working with children of a variety of age groups from kindergarten through eighth grade. I have experience working with special education students as well. I know that every student is different in how they learn best and one of my strengths is my ability to assess a student’s learning style and modify my teaching approach accordingly to help them achieve their goals. I will gladly provide references from parents and fellow teachers that speak to my ability to motivate and challenge students to grow.

I am flexible on meeting location. I can come to your home, or we can decide on a suitable location together. I do require 24 hours’ notice for cancellations but if you are unable to meet the 24-hour window I am happy to reschedule the session.

In my position as a Paraeducator/Teacher's Assistant I work with the students on a number of different study strategies such as notetaking (Cornell, POP, Power Notes), time management (including breaking down assignments), testing taking tips, and memorization (using visual and audio techniques). I modify study strategies based on what works best for the individual student.
