Hi, guys! I’m Jillian Smart.

Thanks for clicking over to learn more about Jackson Education Support products and services.

I’m an award-winning CEO, master educator, and published author. My story didn't exactly begin with blogging about education topics and helping learners of all ages improve performance...

I found myself in business and writing my first book shortly after entering the high school classroom as a secondary science teacher. Jackson Education Support became the culmination of my passion for teaching. I aim for two outcomes: that clients increase confidence and improve performance.

Jackson Education Support serves as the vessel for this work. My mission is to develop more independent learners. I get to help clients transition into more challenging environments and create resources that reach stakeholders from all over the world.

I've helped home school students pass GED exams, adults improve ACT scores, educators pass the PRAXIS exam, preschoolers become kindergarten ready, and K-12 students catch up and stay ahead academically. I've also trained educators and parents on strategies for helping students succeed. My clients have stretched me.

My 96% success rate among exam prep and private tutoring clients evidences efficacy; implementing personalized services and supporting engagement efforts works. I've learned a lot, and this is only the beginning.

The blog section of this website serves as a sort of portfolio of what I think instruction and learning should look like based on client and partner experiences. My hope is that, by experiencing what's worked (and not worked) for me, you will share and use the strategies and approaches that fit your unique circumstances... and keep the conversations going in your community.

Since I enjoy reading and learning about hot topics in education, it seemed appropriate to merge this passion with my tendency to have an opinion about almost everything. Other opinions are safe here as well. I'd love to read what you have to say. Guest blogging is a great way to get your feet wet or introduce your brand to a new audience, so clap back by sending your submission today!
