About Jill

I believe that discovering the joy of learning can be transformative. I have seen my students transformed by the sudden discovery of their voice, their insights, their unique critical perspectives. In my twenty plus years of teaching, my students have earned top scores on the SAT and AP exams, won numerous creative writing awards, and gained admittance to the colleges of their choice. I have taught English at acclaimed independent schools and have been an AP grader for the AP Language and Composition exam. I have helped students with their college essays, reviewed college applications, and served as a college counselor. Over the years, my students have gone on to a variety of colleges and universities, from small liberal arts schools to large research institutions, and many have been accepted to top-tier schools, including every Ivy League school. I enjoy helping students reach their academic goals.

I am happy to assist students to be successful in their English classes, for daily assignments, such as grammar or vocabulary development, or for long-term assignments, such as a research paper or term project. I provide an individually tailored approach for success on ISEE and the SAT Reading and Writing Exams.

I specialize in providing expert feedback on AP English readiness. As a past AP reader and successful AP teacher, I can cut through distracting advice and help students understand the critical elements of writing a successful prompt. I offer practical, personalized, proven guidance for success on the AP English Language or AP English Literature exam.

I would be happy to arrange a consultation meeting to ensure a positive, valuable experience.
I look forward to meeting with you and charting your path to success!


I have been an award-winning English teacher and as a college counselor at acclaimed independent schools. I have served as adjunct English faculty at the college level. I have worked as an AP English exam reader. I am highly qualified in English literature, grammar, research writing, SAT prep,and AP prep.

I have an extensive track record of successful work with college-bound students. I have seen what works and what doesn't work in college applications, college recommendations, and college essays. I have sought feedback from my students to get the inside scoop.

I look forward to working with students to help them reach their goals!
