Hello. My name is Jill. Teaching has been a passion of mine for over 30 years. I have been a secondary school teacher, a business instructor, and am currently tutoring for the Literacy Council in Lancaster, PA. I also taught English as a Second Language in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Tutoring gives me an opportunity to help students set and reach goals in the Language Arts. I specialize in reading, writing and grammar in school and on the SAT and ACT exams. Together we discuss the skills to be learned and develop a plan of action. I prepare in advance thorough lesson plans, and I assign homework after each session. Each session begins with a review of skills learned at prior sessions, and a review of questions the student had while completing the homework. Progress reports are provided periodically as well as requests for lesson feedback so I can provide the optimum learning experience. I also believe that learning is a creative process, so I can guarantee that we will have fun as well as learn together.

I am also one of those rare individuals who love public speaking. I have a long history with Toastmasters and over 20 years of public speaking experience. I love helping people learn to feel more at ease speaking in front of groups of people.

I also bring years of business and corporate experience into my tutoring - meaning, as we learn together, I can demonstrate to students how they can use their skills practically in their daily lives and in their future professions.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you and getting started in helping you achieve success in your studies.

After receiving an MBA in 2003, I opened a small cosmetics studio in 2004. Although the recession impacted the business, we worked through it and came out the stronger for the experience. I sold this strong healthy business in 2014. In 2014, I had the opportunity to become a member of a non-profit agency and became its board president in 2016. During those next years, we grew our visibility and reach into the community - helping people work through their financial crises, providing people with durable medical equipment free of charge, and assisting the low income elderly with in home care and services which helped keep them in their homes. With the exception of our Senior Services Caregiver, this thriving agency remained an all volunteer organization.
