About Jamie


Bio

Since I can remember, biology, anatomy, and medicine has been all I wanted to learn about. This was influenced in part by growing up on an ambulance. My father and grandfather founded the EMT service in our hometown and often, I would ride with them, soaking up every experience. This led me to become the youngest licensed EMT in the State at 16. My love of the biological sciences never lessened, but rather grew with each book I read. This continued through high school where I was the only...

Since I can remember, biology, anatomy, and medicine has been all I wanted to learn about. This was influenced in part by growing up on an ambulance. My father and grandfather founded the EMT service in our hometown and often, I would ride with them, soaking up every experience. This led me to become the youngest licensed EMT in the State at 16. My love of the biological sciences never lessened, but rather grew with each book I read. This continued through high school where I was the only student allowed to student-teach the Comparative and Human Anatomy to my peers. I found an interest in the area of Mortuary Science and Embalming, which I perused in college and graduated with a degree in Mortuary Science and Anatomy Education from Lynn University in Florida.

During my extremely successful career which followed I never stopped expanding my biological and anatomical studies. I found myself being called out to other funeral homes to handle "extreme" cases of disease and trauma and prepare them for viewing. As my status of a reconstructive specialist grew, I began conducting seminars to professionals for continuing credits as well as taking on several apprentices as well.
My experience has given me the privilege of being asked to assist the pathologists in the Broward County Medical Examiners Office in Florida, performing autopsies and working investigations. I was asked to train with the New England Organ Bank to assist with organ and tissue harvesting, eye enucleation and long bone recovery. I also had the privilege to act as a field tester for the Dodge Chemical Co which was on the front line of research and production of new chemicals and techniques. This was all happening simultaneous as I worked and managed 3 funeral homes, and scheduled for 15 firms.
Unfortunately, a freak accident left me with 2 herniated discs in my lower back which led to a fusion and a recent diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis which ends my hands on clinical work. I was offered a tutor position at Capitol Community College for biography, human biology, anatomy & physiology, microbiology, emt and paramedic courses.
I have found that I have a unique ability to make complicated concepts easier to understand by explaining things in a logical, real world way. Needless to say, I have become the most requested tutor at the school. I enjoy what I am doing and would love to help out others.

Photography

For as long as I can remember, I have always found cemeteries to be beautiful, serene and inspiring. This helped steer me to my 17 year career as a funeral director and embalmer. I enjoyed every day I was able to be paid to do something that I loved and received unmatched fulfillment from. Unfortunately, a back injury ended my fairy tale career path. In the time since, I have rediscovered the art and science of photography. During my high school years, I loved all aspects of photography, from taking photos to developing my own film and printing my own shots. As college, career and family took up my time; photography took a back seat............ until about a year ago. I naturally began "dusting off the photo cobwebs" in a setting in which I felt comfortable and knew the beauty that was just beyond the scope of the casual observer....... my beloved cemeteries. By chance I had posted some of my unique photos online and the response was tremendous. The amount of feedback and support ignited a spark in me. Needless to say, here I am. My passion is to capture the beauty of these sacred places which comes in all shapes and sizes. I especially am thrilled when I am fortunate enough to capture the pure energy of a site, a true testament of the lives that these physical monuments represent.

During my career as a funeral director and embalmer, I conducted specific continuing education for licensed Funeral Directors and Embalmers throughout Connecticut, and training for numerous interns under my direct supervision. I coordinated several lectures with tours of our facilities for the local high schools. I spoke to psychology, sociology, thanatology and death and dying classes. These open forums were the highlight for many of the students, and a favorite among the teachers.

Biology

My education in Biology has been an ongoing passion since I can remember. I have always had the fortunate ability to understand and retain information dealing with the life sciences such as Biology, Anatomy and Physiology and Microbiology. I have extensive hands-on experience in Emergency Medical Care, Forensic and Pathology Labs along with Embalming and specialized in Restorative Art. This experience led me to have several apprentices which I trained, along with providing continuing education seminars for other embalming professionals over my 17 year career in that line of business. I have over 4 years of tutoring experience, working for Capital Community College and independently. Capital has a large nursing program which provides me with many students needing help. I currently tutor general biology, human biology, anatomy & physiology I and II, Microbiology, Emergency Medical Tech, Paramedic, general nursing skills, and teaching study skills using critical and applied comprehension. I have found that my ability to explain complex and difficult concepts in a way that not only allows the students to grasp the information but actually enjoy a once feared world. Please send me any questions you may have and I look forward to helping!

A Truly Creative and Effective Tutor

Jamie brings a rare creativity to the learning process. He demonstrates an adaptive approach which allow him to present information in accordance with the strengths or weaknesses of the student. His examples and analogies are clearly specific to what the student already knows or can relate to. He also displays a clear command of his subject matter and, equally as important, related fields of study. He is always well prepared, punctual to arrive and willing to stay as long as it takes to feel he has made an impact on the student. He provides numerous resources for study that he has accumulated over the years and which offers information in a more accessible way than some of the texts provided by the schools. He also can provide these via technologies currently in vogue (such as Google Docs, the web, texts, etc.). He knows how to connect with the student and most effectively animate his subject matter. I have yet to see a more effective tutor. Jamie is highly recommended for anyone struggling with the sciences. Thank you Jamie!
