About Jaime


Bio

I'm an experienced tutor and test prep instructor with a graduate degree from the University of Chicago. Beyond my formal education, I'm something of an autodidact, meaning that I enjoy learning, and am both formally educated and self-taught across a variety of disciplines. My formal education, both undergraduate and graduate, emphasized mathematics, economics/finance, accounting, natural sciences, and language. I'm also an avid reader in a wide variety of other subjects, including history,...

I'm an experienced tutor and test prep instructor with a graduate degree from the University of Chicago. Beyond my formal education, I'm something of an autodidact, meaning that I enjoy learning, and am both formally educated and self-taught across a variety of disciplines. My formal education, both undergraduate and graduate, emphasized mathematics, economics/finance, accounting, natural sciences, and language. I'm also an avid reader in a wide variety of other subjects, including history, political philosophy, and sociology/behavioral psychology.

I find most academic subjects interesting, and believe that difficulty understanding a particular subject/topic is often a failure of the instructor to bring it alive for the student. I view my role as that of a good coach who not only understands the relevant material intuitively but can bring the material to life, conveying a sense of wonder and excitement to subjects that are often otherwise treated as dry and uninteresting.

I have taught for a leading national test prep organization (ACT/SAT/PSAT, GMAT, LSAT, GRE) for a number of years, and have separately tutored formally and informally in all levels of maths through calculus. I'm also articulate and well-trained in English grammar, language, and literature, and consistently score 99%+ on various achievement and entrance exam verbal and reading comprehension tests.

I'm available for in-person tutoring in the Chicagoland area, as well as online more generally. Thanks in advance for reading a bit about me, and I look forward to an opportunity to help you polish your understanding and reach your goals.

Knowledgeable with solid method of teaching

My son found Jaime's approach to the tutoring session extremely helpful. He is getting tutoring for the ACT test, and with one session, he already feels stronger on the math section. We are setting up Jaime for other sections as well as brush ups after the test.

Polite and well spoken tutor

Jaime is teaching our son Algebra 2. We just had our first lesson with him and our son seemed to connect with him and liked his calm approach. He communicated with us promptly, and if he was running a few minutes late he called. We are looking forward to having a nice long relationship with Jaime.
