About Jaimy

Hello, my name is Jaimy R. I'm a sophomore at the University of New Haven, studying English with a concentration in writing. I have a 3.8 cumulative GPA, alongside experience in mastering many other subjects besides English - itself. I have received the highest-ranked scholarship from my university, based on my successful academic standing. I have successfully advanced in areas such as Music Theory, Piano Competency, and other musically-focused courses. I am very outgoing and personable, finding it easy to form bonds with my students...which tends to result in more progress for them. I have won awards for poetry and essay writing for 4/4 of my consecutive high school years. I have received nearly perfect scores on the writing section of the SAT's and a perfect score on the essay of the SAT's.

I have over 2 years of experience tutoring students from middle school to collegiate levels in essay writing and creating writing. All of my students have had much success in bettering their grades and knowledge of the subjects. Essay writing and creative writing are used in all courses and lessons, not just in English classes. Therefore, it is a wise choice to attempt to get ahead and to advance with the benefit of understanding the art of of writing sooner, rather than later.

I attend classes Monday - Thursday during the day and am available during the evenings for tutoring. I am flexible with tutoring session times and locations. I always respond quickly to all attempts of contact. I look forward to speaking with you and potentially becoming your tutor. Success is near!

I have received very high - if not perfect - scores on my assignments and examinations in English all my life. I received a 770 on the writing portion of the SAT's and a 740 on the reading section. Also, a perfect 12/12 on the essay within the SAT's. I am a very confident and outgoing young woman, making public speaking a very enjoyable task. I can show my student ideal ways to practice public speaking in order to be very successful and comfortable. I read about many different subjects from contrasting areas, making writing about random topics easy and pleasurable. I plan on making our tutoring sessions something that my students can not only succeed in, but have fun and take away something that they can't always take away from being in a large classroom.

I'd love to chat more about tutoring possibilities and scheduling. If you have any questions at all, contact me. Thank you! I am looking forward to setting something up in the near future.

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.


I have had a solid 9 years of piano lesson and practice experience. While taught under the instruction of Mary Totarski of Northford, CT, I have performed several times at school functions and award ceremonies. I have competed before judges and received high scores throughout the entirety of the 9 years. I believe piano is a key instrument in music and it is a very significant part of advancing in Ear Training and Sight Reading, as well.

Public Speaking

I have been public speaking to those my age and much older for the past 5 years. I have gained experience in addressing many kinds of audiences and backgrounds. There are many aspects to public speaking that are absolute necessities to have; such as confidence, factual information, practice, and speaking skills. I have spoken in front of crowds with anywhere between 4 to 1,000 or so people. I look forward to helping people gain better public speaking skills and confidence in doing so. I am a very positive person with a lot of patience, so I can promise a great deal of success in tutoring in Public Speaking.

Voice (Music)

I have taken vocal lessons with a concentration in Opera/Classical Voice for the past 6 years. I have studied under the guidance of internationally - known Operatic performer and instructor Margaret Astrup. Astrup is now the director of voice and Operatic studies at Western Connecticut State University. I have competed in state and national competitions to perform in a small, advanced choir with success for 3 of my 4 high school years. I read music very well and have great teaching ability. I also have a 9 year, solid background in piano.
