Hello, parents and students! My name is Dr. Jill Bartholomew. I am an experienced, certified tutor/educator and educational researcher. I am proud to offer individual tutoring and test preparation support services. I believe that every student can learn and succeed. Every student learns a little differently though, and sometimes the teaching he or she receives in school doesn't match how the student learns best. A personal approach is key. I have found that discovering a student's learning style and creating learning strategies that will hopefully help my students continue to learn and progress their entire lives.

I love working with my students. I love being able to establish a close coaching relationship where I can cheer them on as they become more confident in their learning skills and abilities. I started Mad Wizard Tutoring in 2020 because I know there is a real need for an individualized, educational approach to our students' learning journeys. I use research-driven strategies to help my students understand how they learn best, gain confidence in their own abilities, and practice strategies that may help them with the rest of their lives. Every student learns differently. Sometimes, a mainstream approach to education isn't the answer to helping your student become a lifelong lover of learning. What I love most about being a professional tutor is seeing the joy and excitement that a genuine connection to learning inspires.

I have over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of different academic and professional settings. I have taught ELA in traditional and online classrooms. I am TESOL-certified to teach ESL courses from young learners to adults. I have also taught ESL courses in the traditional classroom at the community-college level. I have written professional as a technical writer/editor and for the website I am qualified to teach all core subjects K-12, French Language and Literature. I also offer test preparation services for many standardized tests from the ISEE and SSAT to the GRE and Praxis tests.

I am certified with the National Tutor Association. I have been honored as a Honored Tutor last fall. Please check out my LinkedIn Profile and my professional website below:

    My child loved working with Jill. She really tried to connect with him and find books that would help him enjoy reading. His reading skills improved very quickly and was able to increase his assessment score by over 100 points. Thank you Jill for making this process fun for him and building up his confidence.

    The method and ways of teaching youngsters with kindness and patience. The students said that learning together with Jill is like going on a trip with a friend. We were very lucky to find an amazing teacher with great interpersonal skills and so much talent to transmit knowledge.

    Frequently asked questions

    Here is my typical process:

    1. I like to have an introductory phone call or email chat when a parent decides to hire me to answer questions, introduce myself, and learn more about the parent and their student. 

    2. After the phone call, I will send out a learning questionnaire form asking for more specific details on the student's learning history, challenges, strengths, goals, and objectives for improvement.

    3. During the first session, I will spend some time (15-20 mins) getting to know the student, playing a game, icebreakers. Then, I will administer a placement/gap assessment to observe the student's style of learning and thought and problem-solving process. 

    4. The assessment will allow me to create a personalized learning plan that meets the student's learning needs and the parent's learning objectives. We will schedule future appointments from there.
