About Jill

I have sixteen years' professional experience teaching ESL at all levels, to (primarily adult) students from many countries, both in the classroom and privately.

I have an Honors Degree in European Languages and a postgraduate certificate in TESOL, and I have taught in England, Germany, and the US. I can focus on grammar or conversation depending on the student's goals.

I am a native English language speaker but also speak Spanish, French, and German and therefore understand both the difficulties and joy that can come from learning a second language.

I am willing to work on an intensive, short term basis or long term. Please feel free to contact me for any further information. I look forward to working with you toward 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working in K-5th grade for the past two years as a substitute teacher. I am up to speed not only with the work appropriate to the grade level, but also how it is presented in Washington County, MD. Furthermore, I have a postgraduate certificate in teaching (TESOL) K-12. I also have Praxis I, math and English, and Praxis II language qualifications.

Elementary Math

I have a BA Hons degree, I passed both Praxis I (core/basic skills) and subject skills in French, German, and ESL, I have a postgraduate certificate in teaching TESOL K-12, and I teach all basic skills on a daily basis at elementary school level, Maryland. I therefore not only have the academic skills, but also the practical skills since I am au courant with the way basic math is presented today.

German

I have a BA Honors Degree in European Languages and Institutions, German major. I have a postgraduate certificate in teaching language K-12, and I am qualified in Praxis I - K-12 skills and Praxis II - Spanish & English. I spent approximately 4 years living in Germany, both studying at university, working in the private sector, and for the US Army as a bilingual assistant.
