About Jamie

Hello!!

I am a recent graduate from UCLA with a psycho-biology degree looking to return for my masters degree in the future. I have experience tutoring SAT and ACT prep for high school students as well as particular subjects, like biology. I am result-oriented in my tutoring style and will work with the student to improve both understanding of the material and study skills that will result in heightened scholastic performance.

Tutoring Methods
1. POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT: basic psychology experiments have shown that positive reinforcement facilitates learning better than other forms of reinforcement. Therefore, I try to implement this method during my tutoring sessions in the form of incentives and positive feedback.
2. Practice makes Perfect: I believe that for almost all subjects in school children who practices the subject regularly, as one would a sport, will master the subject with more success.
--Qoute from coach John Wooden: "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail."

Approved subjects

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.

QuickBooks

I am qualified to be a tutor of QuickBooks because I actively use this program every day at work. I work in the accounting and finance department at a local medical group that utilized QuickBooks as its primary accounting program. I am quite familiar with the program and am able to effectively explain and demonstrate how to use the program properly.

Knowledgeable And Patient! — Jamie really helped me think about the problem before attacking the math portion in the GRE! I even scored better on the actual test. I just wish I had more time and money to have her tutor me a few more times before the GRE. Definitely recommend her! ...
