Although I currently work as a program specialist, I also have a BA in Spanish, an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Intercultural Studies, an MEd in Special Education, and an MEd in Educational and Organizational Leadership. I am certified in CA as a resource specialist, single subject: Spanish and Business, and Administrator. In IL, I have teaching certificates in Elementary, Secondary, and Administration; endorsements in Spanish, ESL, Business, and Special Education.

Throughout the past 10 years, I have taught elementary, middle, and high school in subjects ranging from reading to co-taught physics, from Spanish to co-taught algebra. I have experience with universal design for learning, curricular modifications, and I use a variety of multi-modal strategies to help students acquire concepts. I have studied several languages in order to improve my ability to reach non-native English learners.

I come from a family of engineers; although I have always loved and excelled in math, what intrigued me beyond the concepts themselves was why so many students continued to struggle to understand the concepts. I try to make all of my instructional applications practical and understandable. I never give up on my students!

I am available to work weekends and typically meet at public libraries to get to know my students. Special tutoring assignments for test prep or special occasions are my specialty.

Amazing Tutor

Jamie is very patient and always prepared with a well established lesson plan to best address the learning needs of my sister. I highly recommend her for tutoring especially for any tutoring for children with learning difficulties.

Crystal, 30 lessons with Jamie

Great tutor

I think when a child looks forward to working with a tutor that is the best review a tutor can get and this is exactly what happens when we have sessions with Jamie. Jamie has a well thought out plan for the tutoring session and uses the most motivating reenforcers when working with my child.
