I'm Jill.
I am an experienced professional educator who loves to tutor!
I work hard to design personalized lesson plans and I enjoy getting to know my students and their specific learning needs. I know the importance of creating a welcoming learning environment that encourages success and builds confidence. I always strive to incorporate fun and engaging activities based on students' specific learning needs. I take the time to set goals with my students and build a solid academic foundation for future success. During my tutoring sessions, my students will have fun, work hard, enjoy learning, and walk out feeling inspired!

A BIT OF MY BACKGROUND:
I am certified teacher with 10 years of experience. I have worn many hats with this title and taught many grade levels and in various school environments. I have taught Spanish , ESOL, English, science, 5th grade (all subjects), reading, writing, language arts, phonics, spelling, grammar, social studies, study skills, vocabulary, drama/reader's theater, multimedia, test prep and I am a trained Reading Intervention Specialist. I have also taken on many other roles and responsibilities while wearing each hat throughout my career.

It was when we moved to Charlotte that I decided to further pursue yet another goal of mine (and wear another hat). This passion to tutor has been growing in me ever since I realized how much I loved to work with small groups and teach in the one-on-one setting. I know it can make a huge difference for many students who may be struggling and who just need a little more support in-order to reach their goals. So, I decided I wanted to be able to provide this awesome opportunity for more students in the Charlotte area.

I grew up in Wisconsin, attended college there and taught there for a few years before my husband and I moved to Florida. I then lived and taught in Florida for several years and had amazing experiences teaching in north, south and central Florida. I've had many wonderful teaching experiences and I've grown as an educator through every opportunity. I was able to teach, grow professionally and stay current with the best teaching practices, as well as, have the opportunity to travel and work with many different cultures and languages along the way! (We now live in the Charlotte area and we are loving our experience here, as well).

All these experiences have definitely stocked my "teaching toolkit" and I ALWAYS bring this with me during every tutoring session.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND HELPFUL FACTS:
*I am a certified licensed professional educator with 10 years of experience.

* I graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee with honors. I hold degrees in (K-12) Education, ESOL/English, and Spanish (language, culture, and literature).

*I have teaching experience in: ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), English, reading, writing, language arts, reading intervention, drama/reader's theater, multimedia (technology), Spanish (various levels), 5th grade (all subjects), science, social studies, phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, study skills, EOG test prep and more.

* For potential ESOL students: I love languages and cultures and I know that learning a language is hard work! I know that learning English is more than just learning how to speak the language. I work with each student to create a plan that works and allows the student to achieve his or her desired English proficiency in all areas of the target language (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and the culture). I also truly value the culture, language and background of each of my students!

*I am a trained reading intervention specialist, which means I know what is needed to help struggling readers and writers find success --- first, in reading and writing --- but then on to all subject areas!

*I have experience with new and innovating teaching methods, which inspire reading gains while encouraging independent learners. I had the opportunity to create and implement a reader's theater program for beginning readers that gave kids a chance to READ without even realizing they were reading; they just knew they were having fun (IT WAS A BLAST!). I created this program for young readers but the skills branch out to all learners, at any level!

SUMMARY:
With my teaching experience, coupled with my excellent educational background, I know I can help your child succeed! I know the importance of creating effective lessons that focus on a student's individualized learning style and academic needs and I love to make learning enjoyable!

ADDITIONAL FUN FACTS ABOUT YOUR TUTOR:
In addition, I have also lived in China for a summer, studied abroad in Spain, and I have traveled to Italy, Finland and other parts of Europe, South America (Ecuador), Canada and the United States. It was through these experiences that I acquired even more of an appreciation for travel, culture, language learning, and education.

I am a teacher, tutor, writer and artist. I enjoy creating and appreciating art, writing (all kinds), music (singing, ukulele & some guitar), movies, being active (hiking, running, Pilates, yoga, soccer, and dance), nature (the ocean to the mountains), reading (all kinds of books), animals (especially my sweet dog), and spending time with my husband, family and friends.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson!
I look forward to speaking with you, learning more about your child's needs and hopefully working with you and your child in the future!
Have a wonderful day!
