About Jill

German, ESL and TOEFL/IELTS prep instructor. MEd in German and ESL, Second Languages and Culture.

Talented teacher, coach, advocate, mentor who can motivate, educate and guide learners of all ages. Experienced in public and private school settings. Extensive experience as language educator with an international population of students. Highly motivated, independent thinker and problem solver with strong skills in advocacy and interpersonal communication.

I am an ESL Instructor and IELTS Examiner and teach adult students in English grammar, reading, writing and speaking classes.
I tutor candidates in preparation for the academic and general IELTS and TOEFL tests.

(Both IELTS and TOEFL tests conform to the highest international standards of language assessment and are developed and managed by Cambridge ESOL, British Council, and IDP Education Australia, and Educational Testing Service, New Jersey, respectively.)
I also tutor international adults in Accent Reduction.

I am a native German speaker and have tutored students to skip a level of high school German within four weeks in the summer. Other work includes translations and corrections of German letters, legal documents, newspaper articles, manuals and web pages, sometimes voice-over narration for video production.

I am proficient in ACT and SAT language and reading test preparation.

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.
