About Jill

I have a strong passion for teaching English to students of all ages. Having lived overseas and learned Portuguese, I know how challenging (and of course, rewarding) it can be to learn a new language. I also feel it is one of the most empowering things you can do. Learning a new language opens up a world of possibilities.

I have two years experience teaching ESL in a variety of settings (home, business, adult continuing education classes) both here and in Portugal. I have taught individual classes, small groups as well as larger classes--I enjoy all of them.

I also teach at a community center and assist in an ESL classroom on a volunteer basis. In designing lessons, I look at each student individually and tailor the lessons to their specific goals and wants. I want my students to learn, be challenged and reach their goals.

I have a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) as well as a background in speech pathology. As a speech pathologist, I also have a specialized skill set to address any pronunciation concerns you may have. I look forward to meeting you and getting started.
