I taught history for 30 years in an independent boarding school in Connecticut. I am retired now and I miss teaching history and interacting with students very much. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Smith College and and I received a MA in History from Indiana University. I taught World, European and US history. I also taught AP European history. As department chair, I was responsible for developing and implementing the history curriculum.

I love history and I love teaching. I believe tha...

I am very happy with the instruction and guidance provided by Jill to my daughter in preparing for her AP European History Exam. Jill was always patient and prepared for each lesson. She successfully helped my daughter gain confidence for the exam.

My son does well in history and received a 5 on the AP World History exam. He cares about history and worries this 2021 school year has not had enough active instruction due to Covid distance learning, and was hoping to identify a tutor who could help him review and make sure there weren't holes in his knowledge. Not only is Jill that person, she is kind and patient and thorough. He loved working with her and even said he would enjoy more sessions. She was organized and able to guide the discussion to make sure the time was productive. I'm so happy to have identified this wonderful teacher and person through Wyzant.

Jill helped both a friend and myself prepare for an AP European history test. She reviewed the Russian Revolution and New Imperialism with us and really clarified both topics. We have used Jill in the past and will continue to use her when preparing for our AP exam. Thank you Jill!

My son David has a tutor who only work during weekdays on Wyzant fortunately we have found Jill who can flexibly provide classes during weekends, and also she is very experienced teacher, my son enjoyed her classes so far! We will continue keeping David in tutoring session with Jill! Thank you very much! Yan

Jill taught me about Eastern Europe- 17th century, Scientific Revolution, Political Thinkers- 17th century, 18th Century Culture, and The Enlightenment. She helped me fully understand these topics. She was very patient and kind. Additionally, she is very flexible with time and wants to do everything she could to help you succeed. Thank you Jill for an amazing session, I look forward to working with you in the future!

My friend and I worked to prepare essays for our upcoming exam. Jill helped us work through our theses, proofs, and context to make our essays robust and accurate. She was very good at explaining everything and connected each event to the next. Jill was very responsive, prepared in advance, and we only scheduled the session the night before! Thank you so much, Jill!

She is the most knowledgeable and organized tutor, and it is a pleasure to learn from. I highly recommend her. I look forward to our lessons. She has lots of experience with the material and brings good preparation materials, essays, exams, questions, topics to review.

My daughter has only worked with Jill a few times but she already is feeling much more confident about her AP Euro course. Jill is not only incredibly personable and knowledgeable, but she knows how to ?lead? in the tutor position so there is no wasted time and she can quickly figure out what my daughter needs by getting her to jump right in. She also gets her thinking critically about the material and scaffolds her adeptly into thinking more critically, more deeply, and more specifically. So grateful we found Jill!

She sought to understand exactly what the student was struggling with - not just subject matter but test format (multiple choice vs written essays) and prepared a lesson tailored to help.
