About Jill

As a lifelong learner, and the daughter of a sixth grade teacher and a French Linguistics professor, I grew up in a household of inspired and creative teachers. I am a Communications professional who has nearly 20 years of experience delivering Press Releases and award-winning publications and other collateral materials.

I am the compiler of a book that is in the process of being published. It has been chosen for it's "originality" in an upcoming edition of a Publishers Weekly newsletter that will be delivered to 17 million booksellers, libraries, Literary Scouts, Independent Booksellers, and other distributors, world-wide. I appreciate and encourage creative expression of language that reflects a joyful and skillful use of language, and appreciate the value of effective communication. I have published poetry in Auscultations, a publication produced at The Cambridge Health Alliance, and currently serve as the PR Manager for the Cambridge Rotary Club. In the past, I also produced a corporate newsletter for Partners Healthcare, Inc., that was delivered to approximately 40,000 employees.

I have a command of the English language, and am careful, caring, and a good listener. I am able to establish a personal relationship (rapport) with the person being tutored, and I enjoy working WITH them to encourage their own personal style and "voice." Patience is always key, as it is a desire to help guide but never to dictate. Finally, I would stress the importance of being open to a person's learning "style" and personal goals.

Please feel free to contact me to learn more about our working together. I have no doubt we would make a good team!
