About Jill

I am a certified teacher who has worked with students of all ages. The majority of my experience has been working with children in preschool through grade 8. I have taught Special Needs students in multiple formal teaching settings and have done clinical support for students with various behavioral needs. For most of my career, (spanning over 20 years in and out of formal teaching and substitute teaching) I have taught all major subjects to students in grades PreK-8 and have taught general music, theater and various musical instruments. I have directed numerous musicals and am qualified to work with students on performance skills, (drama, speech and public speaking) on the stage and for formal needs. I am also a skilled dancer in tap, ballet and jazz and would be willing to help students who need extra work in these areas. I would be available to tutor children and young teens in all major subject areas as well as music (voice, guitar and woodwinds), Bible, dance and theater.

Currently I am not teaching but I work flexible, full time hours as a Case Manager and clinician at an agency which provides behavioral support to special needs children and their families who are diagnosed with ASD, ADHD, and Developmental/Intellectual Disabilities and a variety of other special needs' diagnoses. I am also a mother of four children, two of whom have special needs. I have a natural gift with children and have always been able to establish rapport quickly with children and young adults. I have been extremely successful in finding ways to help children learn that provides both success and a sense of self-accomplishment for my students and clients. I have a servant's heart and really enjoy seeing students and clients improve and succeed!

I have worked with students who struggle with writing and reading successfully. I have a great deal of patience and skill in helping students to learn language skills and feel successful in learning reading skills, verbal/receptive language skills and writing. I have taught ESL students and special needs students with all English/Language skills.

I have a natural gift with students in Elementary and Middle School. I connect well with them and am able to help them to succeed and bring out their best. I feel confident in my teaching skills and knowledge base to be able to tutor multiple subjects and skills!

I absolutely love working with children on the autism spectrum and with other diagnoses. I have developed multiple skills and interventions to help children with special needs to learn and enjoy learning.

I am looking forward to working with students who need extra support in areas where they are experiencing challenges.
Please contact me to find more about me and how we might be a good fit to work together, rising to meet a variety of learning needs!
