Private Writing Teacher

Ever since I was a child, I absolutely loved to write. During my sessions as creative writing tutor, I hope to foster that same love for writing. My students are challenged to stay true to their own voice while simultaneously considering craft, style, syntax, structure, and the myriad elements of engaging, successful writing. My sessions can be catered to a specific goal (standardized testing), or can be an open-ended experience invaluable to academic success.

Great first day.

Jillian taught our two 6 year-old daughters how to play the guitar! Jillian is always so patient, encouraging, and always takes the time to foster a caring friendship with each of them. Our girls adore her, and we’re sure everyone who knows her does as well. If you want a stress-free and happy learning experience with the guitar, look no further than Jillian!

Elizabeth is an outstanding teacher, and my daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson. My daughter has grown so much on the violin since she started studying with Elizabeth, including being selected for the symphonic high school orchestra as an incoming freshman. I love the way Elizabeth weaves in historical context and artistry. Glad we signed up!

And outside of battling a lack of interest, writing itself can be a tedious, frustrating, and scary process that most students do everything they can to avoid. So what can we do? How can we get past all of the barriers that children and students put up for us and for themselv …

I tutor many students for the SAT and GRE. …
