About Jill

I am an experienced elementary school teacher who loves to find fun ways to help students learn! I have a Master of Arts in Teaching and have taught kindergarten through 5th grade. I am experienced with the Common Core curriculum and am able to break down complex concepts into easy to understand pieces.

I have taught math in grades Kindergarten through 5th so I understand how students build on their knowledge in order to comprehend more difficult concepts. I stay up to date on new math practices and techniques through professional development in order to keep my students engaged.

I love to read and get students excited about reading all different types of genres. Having taught students to read as 5 year olds as well as helping students to analyze complex texts as 5th graders gives me a unique perspective on how children learn and how to challenge them while keeping them interested. I also have experience teaching writing in all grades and am well versed in the different types of writing students need to master.

I was part of the transition team at my school to help other teachers learn the Common Core curriculum and continue to stay up to date on the standards and practices in order to best challenge my students.

I have had the experience of teaching at the youngest elementary level and the oldest. I enjoy all children and appreciate them for their unique needs.

I am available most afternoons and evenings and am willing to meet wherever the student is most comfortable. When beginning tutoring a student, I first make sure to get to know them and their interests and goals as well as share some of what I enjoy. I believe children must be comfortable with their tutor in order to truly be open to learning.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you to achieve all of your goals!

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.

Common Core

I have been involved in the integration of the Common Core curriculum in my school district, beginning four years ago. I have attended three years of summer conferences during which time I was responsible for then providing professional development to my peers at my home school to help them begin to integrate the Common Core curriculum. As a teacher, I am responsible for understanding and being knowledgeable about the Common Core standards and applying them appropriately in all of my lesson plans.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold an Advanced Professional Certificate in the state of Maryland for Pre-K - 3rd Grade and in 1st through 6th grade. I have been teaching for seven years and am employed with Washington County Public Schools.

Reading

Experience teaching reading as a kindergarten and first grade teacher.

Great with kids

Jill was able to keep my daughter focused for the full hour. She covered so much material from the class and was really able to explain it all in a way that my daughter understood! I highly recommend Jill!
