Is your child struggling to read at school? Is his/her confidence down, and you feel as if your child is not receiving the help they deserve? Then you have come to the right person. Reading can open new doors to your child, and as they learn to read proficiently, they naturally become more confident with who they are. I specialize in reading, but I also love to teach math, grammar, and writing. I can focus on comprehension, phonics gaps, fluency, or any other reading challenge your child might have at this time. I have worked with children that have Autism, ADD, OCD, severe speech impediments, and underprivileged students as well. I enjoy all facets of teaching, and will be patient with your child. I previously taught kindergarten and second grade, and loved both grade levels. I was trained in Jennifer Ashton phonics, Houghton Mifflin reading, Harcourt reading, multi-sensory grammar, thinking maps, phonics, and received extensive training in the common core math for second grade. My teaching style differs with each child, as every student is unique, and must be treated as such. I will test your child for free, and discuss with you the plan of action that we will take together to help your child succeed in reading.

Jaymie has been working with my 8 year old son for the past 2 1/2 months. In Kindergarten, he was diagnosed with ADHD and a learning disability. We struggled with working with him at home and trying to find the right tutor for him. I came across Jaymie's profile and realized she had tutored other children with similar issues as my son. After testing him and reviewing his school IEP, she was able to put together a plan targeted to get him caught up to his peers. She was honest and said the next few months were going to be rough for him but with her teaching style, it really has made the difference in keeping my son engaged in the sessions. I have been extremely pleased with the progress he has made these last couple of months and look forward to our continued sessions!
Jaymie may be good with children that are not developmentally delayed, but does not have the skill set to work with children with special needs. Also, she was working to provide home schooling for my autistic son and there was an outburst by my son because expectation was not set, my son became agitated, grabbed for Jaymie and after that incident she quit with no notice.
Again, she may be okay with typical kids, but if you need a long term commitment and have a special needs child consider someone that is less anxious and has the skill to support the situation.
It is with great displeasure that I had to quit my job with Sandra and her son on short notice. However, I did not feel safe with this child. While working with him, he suddenly jumped up and grabbed my arm. In causing bodily injury to myself, I felt I needed to terminate working with this client. As a true professional, I have worked with many special needs children successfully. My other feedback speaks for itself, as I have over 75 5-star reviews on Wyzant.com.
I was extremely impressed with Jaymie, She has helped my son so much, my son feels much more confident now. The entire process of dealing with all my son's needs has been beyond my expectations, I also like that she sends an e-mail after she has met summing up the work for the day, it helps me as a parent to monitor the work my son and she are doing. Jaymie is very professional, respectful, fun and loves to help others. Jaymie Thank you so much for all the good things you have done for my son. Thanks to all your help he has been reading much better and he can't wait to go back to school.
Jaymie is a wonderful and supportive tutor! After several years of failed tries with tutors, Jaymie actually broke through to my daughter and she is reading better than she has before. Jaymie is a talented and supportive tutor and I highly recommend her!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I had several ADD students in my classrooms when I taught for five years in an elementary school. I also had ADD students in my kindergarten class, and when I taught 2nd grade as well. I teach in small chunks for students with ADD, so that they don't get restless.
I worked with over 10 dyslexic students during my five years teaching. I use colored overlays, and other techniques to help dyslexic students. I had over 25 hours if training for dyslexia.
I have a bachelor's degree in K-8th grade elementary school. I also have a masters in instruction and curriculum with an early childhood endorsement and a minor in Spanish.
I taught phonics explicitly for Pendergast elementary school district for 5 years. I also have a masters degree that includes an early childhood endorsement.
I taught reading to kindergarteners and second graders for 5 years in a local Phoenix elementary school.
Because of the inclusion law I had several special needs students in my classroom during the five years that I taught special needs, which included students having IEPs that were below grade level. Some students could not read at all. When I taught 2nd grade I had several students that were at the kindergarten level and were considered special needs because of their academics.
