About Jamie

Today, I am a full-time dental student at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at USC. Thursdays and Saturdays are my only free days but if these days do not work for you, then please feel free to contact me and we can work something out. :)

I received an IB full diploma in 2009 and then received my B.A. in Neuroscience in 2013. Since 2005, I have passionately studied the sciences and mathematics. I took the MCAT in 2012 and 2013 and received top 85th percentile in both physical and biological sciences both times. In 2015, I took the DAT and received above 95th percentile in the sciences (I received a perfect score in general chemistry). I have always loved science and particularly enjoy sharing this love with others!

For the past three years, I have tutored Chinese high school students in San Marino. English is not my students' primary language so I have refined my sense of patience as sometimes, we must review the list of English words before we can begin the lesson. Every student is different and requires a unique approach in order to ensure his/her optimal success in the subject. I love tutoring because I enjoy "nerding" out about scientific concepts and I enjoy helping students understand concepts that once seemed too difficult to contemplate. After our lessons together, you will feel more confident about the subject!

I have professionally tutored mathematics (algebra 1 - precalculus, including ACT/SAT math) for three years. Math comes easy to me and I enjoy sharing this ease with students who find difficulty in the concepts.

I have professionally tutored Chemistry and Physics both at AP level and College level for three years now. My AP students have received 5s in both subjects and my college students have received As in the course. In college, I was a teacher's assistant for Chemistry and Biochemistry. My science GPA was a 3.56 and I frequently organized study sessions to help my peers understand material too. I am passionate about the sciences and enjoy sharing this passion with my students and classmates.

My students feel challenged. Yet, I am good at ensuring that my students feel progress and that no student is left behind. Every lesson ends with an assignment of extra practice problems.

Please feel free to contact me and we can consult over phone or messaging before we meet. My students have fun while reviewing and retaining concepts. If a student or parent does not feel satisfied with my lesson, then I will not bill the hours.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored ACT Math and ACT Science for two years now. My students always improve scores and feel more confident after working together. I have tutored other mathematics courses up through Precalculus and enjoy sharing concepts and helping students feel more comfortable with the format of the test.

Algebra 2

I have tutored mathematics for 2 years now and enjoy helping my students grasp the concepts. I took the DAT last summer and scored in the top 90th percentile on the math portion which covered mainly algebra 2 concepts.

Chemistry

I have tutored AP chemistry for two years to students who received 4s and 5s on the test. All of my previous students improve scores. On the MCAT physical science section, I scored in the top 90th percentile. On the DAT chemistry section, I received a perfect score. Finally, in college, I was the TA for advanced general chemistry.

Chess

I have played chess for 17 years now. I learned in the second grade and have always played friends in my free time. In college, friends and I would meet several times a week to play each other.

Physics

I have tutored AP physics for 2 years and helped my students score As in the course. In college, I received an A and an A+ in two semesters of physics courses. Also, I organized study sessions and enjoyed helping my peers succeed in the college course. I took the MCAT twice and scored in the top 90th percentile in the Physical Sciences portion.
