About Jill

During the past 18 years, I have been tutoring students in Grades 1 through 12. In addition, I have also taught middle and high school math for 12 of those years. My degree is in Elementary Education and I am certified in Mathematics, grades 7-12.

Knowing that there are many ways to solve math problems, I strive to provide a multitude of strategies to promote student success. I accomplish this by using math manipulatives, real world situations, games and technology.

The focus for middle and high school students includes a concentration on clarifying concepts and skills learned in class, assisting with homework as needed, review and preparing for end of the year exams.

I understand the value of students supplementing their classroom and tutored learning by continued practice on their own. For this, I have many resources to provide students, such as notes, worksheets and websites that are great for review.

An important component of my teaching and tutoring philosophy is open communication among students, parents, teachers, and myself. Each session will result in a short report and recommendations as needed on the student’s progress. This team approach, I believe, is paramount to students’ 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.
