About Gillian

I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2010 with my BS in elementary education & my middle school endorsements in math, science, language arts, and social science. After college I worked in an elementary school in Northfield, IL, 2 years as a 7th-grade math teacher in Waukegan, IL, and recently finished my third year as a middle-school teacher in Elmhurst, IL. In Elmhurst I teach math and English. As of June 2016, I have my Master's degree in literacy. I am looking to tutor all ages and look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with my B.S. in Elementary Education. After student teaching during college, I worked as an assistant in an elementary school in Northfield, IL during the 2010-2011 school year. Later that year I assumed a 3rd-grade maternity leave. Furthermore, I currently teach middle school (8th grade), but last year taught 6th grade.

Elementary Math

I taught 6th and 8th grade math last year in Elmhurst and 7th grade math 2 years prior in Waukegan.

Prealgebra

I have taught pre algebra in Elmhurst for two years and will be teaching it again next year. This past school year I tutored two students in pre algebra. This is a subject in which I feel extremely comfortable and confident to help students.

Study Skills

I have experience teaching/tutoring/working with students in grades 2-8 for over 6 years. I myself am a very organized person. Helping students use their agendas, organize their folders, and planning for long-term assignments is something I can assist with.
