My name is Jamie, and I am a recent UC Berkeley English Literature graduate and TESOL certified teacher. I have had an extensive amount of teaching experience. I started tutoring lower classmates in high school who were struggling in Spanish and English as part of the National Honor Society. More recently, I tutored and mentored middle class students in English and Math. I helped many students who were deemed "difficult" by other teachers quite successfully. As far as my ESL experience, I helped teach beginning and advanced ESL classes to incoming refugees from countries such as Eritrea, Burma, and Iran. My ESL teaching skills have excelled greatly after having received Trinity TESOL certification at St. Giles International in London and completing my teaching practice with adult learners.
I am all about catering to students needs. I think the most important thing about being a teacher/tutor is adjusting your methods according to your students. Without the ability to be flexible and adaptable, you are unable to be a successful teacher. I have had experience teaching and tutoring a range of students, from middle school students to adult learners. I am very approachable, and I love making learning fun for the students!
