About Jillian

I recently received my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from SUNY New Paltz, and am a newly certified English teacher. I decided to become an English teacher in 2012, a very long time after I graduated high school (so don’t be concerned if you’re not sure what you want to be just yet!), while I was in college taking a Young Adult Literature course. I spent the whole semester reading books whose main characters were about your age! I imagined how great it would be to teach literature through books all of you would truly enjoy reading! After all, reading is one of my most favorite things to do, so I’d love to share that with you.

As a tutor I have helped students overcome writer's block, regaining their connection with their own creativity. I have also supplemented in-class instruction with more targeted help, aimed at keeping the students on par with their curriculum. As a student teacher, I worked closely with students with many different learning abilities and styles. I ensured that every student had the opportunity to learn at his or her pace.

I expect every day I will be ready to teach you to the best of my ability, and that you will be open to the words and wisdom I have to offer! With me, there will never be a reason to be ashamed of what you like, what you don’t, what you can do, or what you can’t. We will take this journey together, falling short in some places, but triumphing in others! Let’s get started!

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.

I am a NYS certified English Language Arts teacher. I have been a substitute teacher for over a year, working with students of different grades and learning abilities.

I covered essay writing, literature-based critical thinking, and state test preparation.
