About Jill

Hi! My name is Jill. I am currently a 4th grade teacher in Philadelphia. I have my Pennsylvania state teaching certification, and graduated from Kutztown University in 2010 with a 3.9 GPA. My bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education grades K-6. I'm also certified to teach Middle Level English (grades 7-9) and am months away from a Master's in Education from Gwynedd Mercy University.

I love kids and have years of experience working with them! In addition to teaching fourth grade currently, I have substitute taught in every grade from kindergarten through 12th and have served two long-term substitute positions. I've also worked at summer camps with children of all ages and was an orientation leader for college freshmen.

My main expertise is elementary education. Language arts, reading, and writing are my strongest subjects, but I have plenty of experience with the rest!

I am a knowledgeable, friendly and patient teacher based in the Philadelphia suburbs! I will cater my lessons to best meet your child's needs while making learning dynamic, hands-on and relevant.

I also have updated clearances and background checks from the state and national levels. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to request me as a tutor!

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)

I have been certified in Elementary Education (grades K-6) by earning a B.A. in Education from Kutztown University in 2010. I currently hold a valid Level I state certification in Elementary Education, valid until 2016. I have three years of experience in the classroom - one year of student teaching, two of substitute teaching during which I've taught every grade from kindergarten through 8th.


I hold a Level I Pennsylvania state certification as a teacher of Elementary Education, which covers all basic elementary-level subjects. I have taught phonics in a variety of settings and grade levels. I have a year of experience student teaching. I have spent two years substitute teaching where I've taught K-6 phonics and phonemic awareness. I have also worked for a tutoring agency where I developed a personalized reading program involving phonics instruction. Finally, I have worked as an assistant teacher in a pre-school developing basic phonic and phonological skills in young children (ages 2-5).


I hold a Pennsylvania state certification in Elementary Education. In earning my B.A. in Education, I took seven PRAXIS tests and passed all seven in one try. I feel confident in helping others succeed on this test.

Study Skills

I demonstrated exemplary study skills while earning my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education at Kutztown University. I earned a 3.9 GPA, belonged to two different honor societies, and earned a spot on the Dean's List almost every semester. I would be an excellent tutor in study skills for those students struggling in that area.
