About Jamie

Hi everyone, I'm new to Wyzant but am a well-educated and patient young man, with prior experience.

I am available for most technical subjects (including Math at all grade levels, as well as a few other disciplines). I believe that everyone can succeed at any subject if given the opportunity.

I am a graduate of Columbia University, where I studied Mechanical Engineering and was an oarsman for the lightweight crew team. I am very sharp with math and science and for many years only applied my skills to my job as an engineer. However, a little over a year ago, I was asked by a friend to help her daughter find a tutor for her math work. I had never tutored before, but said I could do it, and together the student and I raised her grade up rather effortlessly. I realized I had a clear talent for this type of work.

My approach is patience, and the knowledge that everyone is capable of success in school. I went over the sections that she had been assigned for that week and we went over them as if it was new material. Sometimes just talking about the work one-on-one is better than hearing a teacher lecture it. School isn't about some being smart and others not. It's about making sure everyone learns and some just take more of a nudge than others, and not every subject is easy for anyone. That's where tutors come in handy I believe. (French was my weakness when I was in high school.)

I welcome your request for tutoring.

Have a great day.

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.

Bodybuilding

I am a very experienced, fit, gym devotee, who has attained 11% bodyfat from own my workouts and knowledge from being trained by others. I have read extensively over a period of many years, on fitness and bodybuilding. I have provided advice to friends on how to improve their workouts and would like to do so more as a Wyzant tutor too. I am approachable and fun and encouraging, characteristics which work very well in the fitness industry.

Mechanical Engineering

I am an Ivy League educated mechanical engineer (Bachelor of Science) with approximately 10 years off and on, of experience as an engineer as well. I am also a patient tutor, having tutored in Algebra with a high school student prior to signing up for WyzAnt.
