About Jill

Hello! My name is Jill and I am a school librarian at a charter school. I have over five years of experience teaching in an elementary classroom so I am best suited to tutor in any of the elementary level subjects including reading, writing and math. I have a very patient hands-on teaching style that allows my students to genuinely understand what is being taught and gain the ability to apply what they learn in the classroom and on homework. Although it has been awhile since I have tutored students outside of the classroom, I do have experience tutoring both inside and outside of the classroom. I look forward to helping students improve academically in school! :-) Hello! My name is Jill and I am a school librarian at a charter school.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hi! I have over nine years in teaching, five of those years in an elementary classroom. I obtained my BS in elementary education from West Chester University and my Master's degree in elementary education with a concentration in library science from Arcadia University. I have a Pennsylvania dual certification in elementary education and library science. My experience in the classroom was obtained at a Philadelphia public school where I taught underprivileged children. I taught both the second and the third grade and absolutely loved every minute of it. The only reason I left was to pursue a librarian position once I received my Master's degree and my PA state certification in Library Science.
My teaching style in the classroom and while tutoring is one that is patient and hands-on. I feel it is necessary to continually praise a child when they are doing well and to get to the "root" of the problem if they are struggling. I look forward to tutoring your child! :-)

I feel it is necessary to continually praise a child when they are doing well and to get to the "root" of the problem if they are struggling. I have a lot of experience in teaching reading, writing and phonics on the elementary level and tutored some of my students who struggled. I look forward to tutoring your child! :-)
