About Jill

I have been a teacher for a total of seven years. I've taught high school French at all levels and have also done private tutoring. I love teaching language because I know students are learning a new way to communicate and by learning a second of third language, the world and communities become a smaller place. Depending on the level, I will use textbooks and workbooks to teach vocabulary and grammar but incorporate other tools such as video and music. I can use the materials you have if you're currently enrolled in a class, or I can use materials of my own.

I have recently completed Advanced ESL certification. I have experience teaching four sections of ESL this past summer and really enjoyed all aspects of the courses. I think it'll be important to use whatever skills my student has and enhance them with books and grammar. I believe whatever strengths the student has and whatever his or her goal will determine the focus of the ESL tutoring. I can, of course, use any existing material that the student has, as well as use my own materials and exercises.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been a language teacher for over seven years and recently completed the TESOL Advanced Certification. I assisted in four sections of of ESL this past summer at Portsmouth Abbey School and I am looking forward building my experience with ESL through tutoring.

French

I've been teaching French for 7 years and really enjoy helping students learn another language. I lived in Paris during both my undergrad and graduate years while studying French. I have teaching materials and can adapt to using other materials quickly depending on the goals.

Grammar

I always enjoyed English when I was in school and did very well while studying grammar, reading and writing. I am confident that I can help tutor any aspect of English grammar and look forward to helping a student achieve a greater level of success.

Reading

I always enjoyed English as a subject while I was a student and achieved very good grades in grammar, reading and writing. Thoughtfully reading a story or passage to answer comprehension questions or write a summary takes skill and I believe I can help students with all these aspects. I am an avid reader of many types of books in my free time as well.
