About Jamie

I am a change of career teacher who is excited for the opportunity to take part in your learning. I completed my B.A. from Vanderbilt University, M.B.A from Loyola University Chicago and most recently, I have received a Master’s in Education. For the past fifteen years, I have been using my talents to analyze, develop and grow my acumen. In my former life, I was a derivatives trader. I also have numbered years experience in corporate finance. With a strong work ethic and a "can do" attitude, I have developed a solid foundation of transferable skills. My day job is working in the Chicago Public School (CPS) system as a Certified Secondary and Elementary (K-12) Teacher.

I spend my summers teaching tennis lessons for the Chicago Park District, and my winters recreationally playing "paddle tennis". I am a people person at heart and truly enjoy making learning FUN!

I have experience with: Economics, Finance, Derivatives, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Equity Markets, Capital Markets, and Trading, Corporate Finance, Business Finance, US History, World History, AP US History, AP World History, IB US History, IB World History, American History, European History, Political Science, Geography, and American Government. I also specialize in GMAT, ACT, SAT and Common Core Test Preparation.

I encourage you too reach out. I would be happy to hear your concerns. From one student who understands how hard certain subjects can be, my educational philosophy is all about putting the prompts in place to help you put your best foot forward. My strength is my ability to help you see the world from a different point of view - most often, especially in life (and in tennis), the game is won by a matter of "angles". I am the coach to help you find the solutions you need to be successful!

So I wish i had met Jamie earlier than I did, but just to say she is smart and she is in total control over Finance is an underestimation, my lectures notes from my lecturer were horrible and did not make sense, I had read over them several weeks. Within the first hour of meeting with Jamie she helped me develop a simple approach to solving problems. I hereby recommend her to you if you have any
