About Jillian

I graduated summa cum laude with two degrees, one in Elementary Education and one in English. Throughout college I worked as a writing tutor and helped students of all levels with note taking, outlines, revisions, and final drafts. I am currently a private school teacher in New Jersey, and teach Reading and Language Arts for 6th and 7th grade, and also teach Social Studies for 7th grade. I am familiar and comfortable with the Common Core.

I have experience working with students from 2nd grade to 7th grade. I prefer working with elementary aged students, but am skilled at helping middle school students with reading and writing skills. My time with your child can include a novel study using a novel within your child's reading ability as well as interest, and will increase your child's comprehension, reading, and writing skills. I do not tutor mathematics.

I enjoy working one-on-one with students in order to give a more personalized experience aimed towards the needs of each specific student. No matter the child's age, I push and encourage each child to work to his or her maximum potential through positive reinforcement and consistent encouragement. I also utilize each child's strengths to help them with other areas that they may need assistance in.

I have been tutoring peers and students for several years, and have a unique ability to encourage without giving answers. I enjoy guiding each student to do his or her best. This is my second year as a Reading/Language Arts teacher, and teach grammar, reading comprehension skills, vocabulary, spelling, writing, and proofreading techniques.

If you are interested in being tutored by me, feel free to contact me. We can discuss what you are looking for in a tutor, and if we would make a good match. Learning is about enjoying the journey, not worrying about each stop along the way!
