About Hillary

I am a college graduate with experience living, working and teaching around the world. Most recently, I taught at a private school in Thailand. I have a certification to teach English as a foreign language but I taught my students English, Math, Social, Science and Art. I specialize in young learners but have the qualification to teach adults as well.

I love working with children. It brings me joy to see them progress and succeed. I have a lot of patience and can adapt my teaching style and approach to what is most beneficial to the specific student's learning needs.

I have a TEFL certification from Bridge Lingua Tech along with a specialization certificate for Young Learners, Business English and Grammar.

I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I worked as an Assistant Designer for an accessories company and did all the technical drawings for production.

I was first chair clarinet throughout high school and can read music.

I look forward to speaking with you to see how I may benefit your child's progress.

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.

Macintosh

I have years of experience using a mac computer from work and personal life. I do a lot of work with adobe creative suite which runs primarily on Macintosh computers. I am also fluent in Microsoft office for mac along with the programs that come standard on a mac computer.

Needlework

My emphasis for my degree was in apparel design which included couture sewing techniques and a wide range of hand stitching. I have completed many needlework projects myself and taught others basic to advanced techniques. I also keep a portfolio of samples to use.

Sewing

I have a degree in Fashion Design & Merchandising and have extensive experience sewing handbags, accessories and apparel. I have tutored college level design students and I can teach pattern making, draping and couture sewing techniques.

Swimming

I live across the street from the community swimming pool and grew up swimming competitively. I can teach basic survival swimming as well as all 4 swim strokes. I can also coach students to help them improve their form.

I have taught the children in my family to swim as well as a few of my neighbor's children.
