University of Rochester (Mathematics)
I graduated Salutatorian of my class in high school and I went on to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from the University of Rochester. As much as I love to learn, I get even more enjoyment out of sharing that passion with others!
I gave a year of service with the Americorps out in California. In this program, I worked one-on-one with a selected group of students for 15 minutes a day, four days a week. This is when I discovered tutoring was a true passion for me! I watched these students grow tremendously, gaining both academic skills and, most importantly, confidence! The students would actually be excited when I arrived for our session each day and expressed sincere gratitude by the end of the year. I could not be more proud of them and I hope to inspire more students! I truly believe math is fun once you figure out what you're doing.
Let's face it: Math is intimidating! Any time I tell someone I have a degree in math, I always get the same look: "Oh, I always hated math!" That's only because you were afraid of it! Since math is sequential, meaning each new topic builds off the skills gained in the topic before it, a missed lesson can be catastrophic! A student that struggled through sixth grade math is going to continue to struggle through seventh and eighth grade math and beyond unless there is some sort of intervention. And unfortunately, the eighth grade teacher can't stop the whole class to reteach the sixth grade concepts without falling behind in the curriculum. So the student continues to struggle and avoids the subject even more, causing lack of confidence and a distaste for the subject.
That's where I come in. I specialize in pinpointing the troubled area and then de-intimidating the subject. Since I work one-on-one with students, I am able to customize the session to fit each student's unique learning style. As the student finally starts to understand the material, confidence and even excitement grows! It is very rewarding for me to see someone master a subject they previously thought they would just never understand.
Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to me. I encourage regular feedback to ensure you are always pleased with my services.

Jaime helped my daughter tremendously with geometry with formulas that were more straight forward than what she was being shown in high school. After the first lesson, she's already getting through her homework with more confidence. I highly recommend her!
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.
