Hi, my name is Jill. I am from the USA and am a very advanced native English speaker. My goal is to assist you in gaining educational proficiencies, particularly in communications, art, business, study skills, web design, and English. I have a great deal of education and publishing experience, which will make for a successful collaboration on any project. As a lifelong learner and educator, I am consistently adding to my knowledge bank through apropos research and online courses. I have completed 37 certifications, including the 100 hour TESOL (Teaching English As A Second Language) course offered by Oxford Seminars with an excellent score.
For those of you who may be creatively inclined, I offer inclusions of art in your lesson plans because I have also taught art to just about every age group, and mainly have loved teaching high school and adult levels. Just think about all the different ways you could use this information by simply spending some tutoring time with me!
I think Warren Buffet would agree that I offer valuable information and communication techniques. Your skills of communication are critical to success, and I can help you succeed. I foresee this as a relationship that will be mutually beneficial. Now a little about what I know:
I'll be a little more specific. There were times I would substitute for teachers. My classroom was sandwiched between a geological science teacher and one who taught physics. Since they were next door, I was often called upon to monitor their classes. Now I will admit that I would stand in awe of my colleagues who knew how to read the periodic tables, but I only knew English Arts and pertinent vocabulary,
Another teacher who loved my transferable skills as a sub was "the writing Nun". And I was chosen by a Nun, and I will spell that with a capital for the sake of this true story, real-life example of creative writing on the fly. Everyone knew, her pens just flew. I was so thrilled to get to teach for her. She too wrote her own curriculum and was liberal enough to be open to the idea of pens that created beautiful works seemingly of their own volition. Just write of experiences. Thy pen shall gain wings; so the students realized.
Aside from the many times teaching the many vocabularies of music, math, social sciences, history, computer arts, just to name a few, I taught clients the lingo associated with graphic design, interior design, ceramics, picture framing, and any other technical jargon needed to make myself clear in presentations such as art shows, conferences, and marketing. My opportunities and experiences have pretty much been all at the post-elementary level, but I can and will explain concepts in a clear manner according to your requirements.
Unfortunately, the Physics teacher spoke sparingly. Most of the Physics study involved reading, so I could not overhear them even if I had put my ear to the wall. And I had my own Art to tend to also, well-equipped with bright students such as Liz.
Oh Liz, she was the valedictorian student whose professor/parents spoke to her as the champion she was, ie; adult. Liz expected my best language in her presence. TESOL/TEFL/TESL, no matter which English you call it, has the same requirements of teachers as Liz, or at least it should in my humble opinion.
Perhaps we can repurpose this as a sample creative writing exercise in the future. English has not the confines that separate the elements and principles.
The Physics teacher also knows that I know some elements cannot be separated into such specific in English, such as; vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking, expression........
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon; or maybe proofreading, or writing, or reading, or liberal arts........

Join me for the creative unleashing of highly effective processes of learning success. Your instruction will include: A. creative problem solving (unleashing the genius within) B. formation; a foundation is planned (architect) C. building; drafts are written (carpenter) D. finishing; the writing is polished (finishing editor/proofreader) I've used these guiding principles countless times in my life. Just as a jeweler would not be able to sell rough stones, Jill would not have been able to make anything in the publishing field without employing these principles. Her college papers would have been fair to dull rocks. She can say this as the daughter of a bricklayer who was the son of a stonemason in a familial line that dates back to middle 1600. So, of course, I did learn about laying bricks and throwing rocks too. Not very many structures stand the test of time when we throw rocks (rough drafts). Only with this brick, mortar, and finish will the building stand. But enough about my lineage. My capstone point is that the finishing point of any building or writing should communicate a great product. In creating this description I had the above principles in mind. My college papers, business papers, copywriting, web designs, resumes, and even informal conversations are inclusive of this process of which proofreading is a vital component. Why? Well, I might want to throw a rock at myself if I assume myself incapable of accomplishing as much. And as the daughter of a bricklayer, I think I know about bricks and buildings, and mortar, and capstones such as proofreading. So now at my concluding paragraph contains the capstone of what is called proofreading. Proofreading, as my gem of a teacher told me, is constructed with similar principles. It contains a precise methodology which assures great communication. I would like to involve you in this structure. Please step in the door so I may explain the steps involved in editing and proofreading as art, the elements and principles of Art and English as your toolkit, and design as your structured building of success!Show More
I offer valuable information you would pay other editors tens of thousands of dollars for. As a graduate honored with a kappa delta pi status, I had artistic license to write my own curriculum for the most prestigious private school in town, where I taught art to 7th through 12th grade. I have a love of creative thought and promise to inspire my students as we conquer the artful use of linguistics, the knowledge of root meanings, how to sketch or paint visually or literally, and production of professional outcomes.
