Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc, examining your writing process together will allow us to customize every session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

I've had a book published and have written for a multi-national newspaper. I also got A grades right up until I finished college with English and Creative Writing. My style of teaching is very relaxed and informal, I want students to feel they can be equals with me, and gain confidence and be proud of their work. I set homework but I also encourage students to get creative in their own time and to show initiative! The most rewarding thing is that with writing, you can nowadays find so many outlets for your work - the sky's the limit!

Lessons can involve looking at literature and different styles of writing, as well as finding something that sparks the imagination and interest. I work especially well with young teens and pre-teens, as well as those who are looking to further their writing skills.

Kimberley is an amazing instructor, I recommend her 100% for any age group. She is energetic and passionate about teaching and helping people discover their talent. I was self conscious about singing in front of her, but she made me feel comfortable and I was able to learn a lot.
Brooke
Kimberley is such a caring, patient and understanding teacher. My daughter is only 7 but they connected so well. She's got bright pink hair and lights up the room, with fun games and excercises to engage young students. Her British methods are fantastic, and my daughter has a wonderful and clear understanding of scales, chords, dual hand playing and is currently working towards her Grade 1 ABRSM exam which we hope to take next year.

I love Kimberley's method of teaching. I booked her to improve my piano for performance and studio production. She is extremely methodical and takes extra care to make sure I understood all the concepts. We did a few lessons on music reading and chord progressions as well. She's an excellent teacher for any adult wanting to learn, extremely patient and understanding

Online 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.

Mihaela
Jillian is a miracle worker! Most of my life I believed I was tone deaf and never sang. I only started singing lessons after reading how it was great for mental health during Covid. Fast forward a year of working with Jillian, and I just received high praise at an open mic for emotional expressiveness, pitch accuracy and high notes. This is CRAZY. I've gained ear training skills, breath support, accuracy, a solid two and a half octave range (had less than half that when we started), and the ability to express my emotions and touch others through music. Jillian is that rare gem of a teacher who was capable of helping me get there from zero. She's incredibly supportive, but will also push you to new levels. You walk out of her lessons filled with joy for music and more in love with life. Could not recommend Jillian more sincerely and enthusiastically - whatever level you are, working with her is a gift!
Cassandra
I'm so glad I accidentally picked a music therapist to teach me to sing! She not only helps me to sing and learn techniques, but also can talk with me/support me through emotions I have during this process. Jillian is also very flexible to my needs of the session and holds a non-judgmental space so I feel more comfortable with singing and being expressive.
Julie
If 5 stars is for Best instructor ever than Jillian is the winner! When I first started, I was so afraid of singing off pitch that I was afraid to sing! Jillian has helped me to gain confidence for singing from my heart, expressing emotion. I do not even worry about pitch anymore. All of Jillian's students are so lucky like me to have Jillian for support and guidance to make our dreams a reality!

Online Writing Teacher

Writing remains one of the most important skills everyone needs to succeed in life. I have worked as a professional writer since 2009, with experience as a script writer, copywriter, blogger, and reviewer. Resume writing, cover letters, personal statements, web text, radio ads, and advertisement are my specialties. Additionally, 7 of my scripts to date have been produced as short documentary films and released on DVD. Since writing improvement is a long-term process, I coach how to brainstorm and create an outline for any assignment; balance sentence structure, word usage and conventions to form articulate paragraphs with transitions; practice self-editing; and correctly follow the format of academic writing at any grade level, especially for essays. I mainly use interactive tools and resources to assist students in elementary school, middle school, and high school. For college and university students, I work with them through regular critiques and feedback to help them strengthen ...

Natalie took her time to understand my kids needs and create lessons to fill gaps in their math knowledge and build from there. She gave some homework throughout the week to help my kids catch up in basic math.

Natalie was great at communicating with me after every session. She always gave a detailed summary and the plan for next week.

Thank you!

Amazing, patient and funny! Natalie helped me prepare for my PSAT and she was amazing. I love everything about the way she teaches. The questions seem easy when she explains them and you feel comfortable with her.

Natalie really goes above and beyond than any other tutor my daughter has had. From evaluating her before to see where she was, to assigning work to keep her learning before her next lesson. Very impressed!

My son will speak to Nick's tutor skills, but I need to speak to Nick's service - he is incredibly friendly, and his response time is excellent. Any time we needed to ask a question, I got a reply within minutes (or, if he was teaching, at his earliest break). Scheduling sessions can be tricky when doing tutoring, and having a responsive, communicative tutor who is organized and manages an efficient schedule is KEY. Nick is all these things.
