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!

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.

Jill is super knowledgeable, pleasant, and an amazing tutor.

ESL fundamentals for my Vietnamese girlfriend; worked on breaking through her "fossilization"; gave her suggestions for practice techniques; etc. etc. ...far too numerous to go into in this review. Bottom line: Jill is wonderful and I/we highly recommend her!! :-).
