Hello! My name is Jillian. I am an elementary teacher who is certified in two states as an elementary teacher and a reading specialist. I earned both my B.S. in Elementary Education and my M.Ed in Reading from West Chester University. I love literacy and my strength is helping students succeed in all the components of literacy: reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary.

I have taught in a variety of settings. I have been a traditional classroom teacher for 5 years. I taught preschool where my students learned the foundations for reading and writing. I also taught 2nd and 1st grade in very diverse classrooms. In Philadelphia, where I'm from, I ran a very successful after school reading program for 2nd-4th graders who struggled in reading. I have also been tutoring in the summers since college. My tutees have seen success in a variety of ways. I've tutored a 5 year old going to Kindergarten who needed to, and did, learn the letters and sounds. I have also tutored a gifted 13 year old who wanted to improve her testing scores in reading and vocabulary. She improved her scores enough to receive a scholarship to a prestigious private high school.

I am recently Reading Specialist certified. I know all of the latest research and appropriate developmental steps. I can assess you or your child's current level and use that knowledge to help move to the next step. I have experience with programs such as Storytown, Journeys, 100 Book Challenge, and Reader's Workshop. I have experience with assessments like the DRA, Fountas and Pinnell reading levels, and QRI5.

I have experience with programs like Fundations and Words Their Way. I love to incorporate hands on activities with phonics and word learning. It's not all skill and drill, learning phonics and words can be fun!

As you can see, I am a successful, engaging tutor. I have worked with a variety of students, and I am always committed to helping my students succeed. If you think I can help you, or your child, please contact me. I can answer any further questions and schedule our first lesson. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
