My specialties are: AP Language and Composition, AP Literature and Composition, AP Seminar, AP Research, SAT, ACT. I hold a Master of Arts from Columbia University (Teaching of English) and a Bachelor of Arts from New York University (English and Art History).

I have 11 years of experience in the field of education; 10 in the classroom and 1 teaching privately. I have been tutoring full time on Wyzant for the 8 months and have found my true love. During this time, I have clocked over 300 hours with secondary and post-secondary students across the country. A typical day of mine could start with reading Chaucer over coffee, helping with college application over iced tea, and end by proofreading a graduate psychology paper over hot chocolate. I am flexible, knowledgeable, and an expert in my area; I believe that my ratings and reviews speak for themselves. I have also served as an AP Curriculum Writer and AP reader for the College Board.

A few highlights from my Spring/Summer work in 2019 are coaching students in the following AP courses: 14 students in AP Language and Composition, 4 students in AP Literature and Composition, 1 student in AP World History, and 1 student in AP Seminar.

I helped prepare students for standardized tests including: 4 students in SAT Literature Subject Test, 11 SAT, 6 ACT.

I served as a tutor for two undergraduate students in 4 humanities courses. I also worked as a proofreader and tutor for 2 graduate students (1 in Media Communications and 1 in Psychology). I assisted with 2 graduate school applications (MA Statistics, MBA).

I wrote a homeschool curriculum for both AP Lang and Lit courses and prepared an advanced high school student for CTY (Center for Talented Youth) course on Race and Politics at Princeton University.

My classroom experience includes Pre-K (1 year), Grades 4-6 and Adult ESOL Chinese/English (2 years), Grade 9 English Language Arts (5 years), Grade 10 English Language Arts (5 years), Grade 11 American Literature (5 years), Grade 12 British Literature (5 year

Excellent tutor

Jillian is a true find. She is the first English tutor with whom my son has felt confidence working. She knows her craft well and helped him get unstuck several times throughout the writing process. Only wish we had found her sooner!

Excellent tutor

Jillian is very thorough in her knowledge of AP English. She was very patient and helped me understand difficult concepts in Rhetorical Analysis by breaking it down into manageable pieces. She also provides additional material and links that makes the writing easier. She is indeed an exceptional tutor.
