About Jamie


Bio

I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2010, where I double majored in Psychology and Studio Art. I have extensive experience working with youth of all ages, giving homework help, working on test taking skills, and practicing reading and writing. In high school I learned how to be a proficient test taker, graduated first in my class, and scored 800 Verbal, 760 Math, and 750 Writing on the SATs.

I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2010, where I double majored in Psychology and Studio Art. I have extensive experience working with youth of all ages, giving homework help, working on test taking skills, and practicing reading and writing. In high school I learned how to be a proficient test taker, graduated first in my class, and scored 800 Verbal, 760 Math, and 750 Writing on the SATs.

In college I spent all 4 years volunteering with youth in elementary and middle school, serving as a homework helper and mentor. After college I spent 4 years living in Boston working with youth aged 16-21. During that time I worked with students from diverse backgrounds with all kinds of learning styles and specific skills. I loved working with each young adult, learning who they were and how to uniquely support them in reaching their potential. And throughout this I learned to be patient, open minded, and creative in adapting to each individual.

I now live in Chicago. I work as a designer, making things with my hands every day. I am passionate about visual arts and music, and feel strongly about the connection between thinking with your head and with your hands. In my spare time I am a woodworker, an avid reader, and a frequent concert-goer.

Ian, 4 lessons with Jamie

Very Responsive and Knowledgable

Jamie provided amazing advice and recommendations on my college essays. She was very responsive and always available to help when needed. I highly recommend Jamie for anyone needing help with any type of writing.

Glenn, 3 lessons with Jamie

knowledgeable and considerate

Jamie is a very nice tutor. She is very caring, considerate, and know her job very well. She is careful to the minutest details and she is always willing to adjust as per the student needs. She is very well aware of different aspects of SAT tests and she really digs deeps down to understand the problem areas of the student and then tailor her sessions to meet student deficiencies. I am so glad that I found her as tutor for my son, who feels very much satisfied and relived for the anxiety of the exam, knowing that someone is there to help him.

Abdul, 23 lessons with Jamie

Excellent tutor!

My daughter found Jamie to be very helpful in her SAT math prep. I overheard part of the session & found some of the tips and strategies she gave Kate to be so beneficial. And I appreciate the follow up she sent me after along with some things for Kate to work in. We’ve already booked another session with Jamie!

Kelly, 4 lessons with Jamie

Patient and Detailed Help

My tutoring session with Jamie was very helpful! She was insightful and tailored her approach to my specific needs. I have already signed up for another session with her. Thank you, Jamie!

Christina, 2 lessons with Jamie

Great demonstrations and very knowledgeable

Jamie did a great job showing me the basics of crochet technique, and was very patient with me (as a complete beginner). She clearly had lots of experience and was able to provide tips not only for what sort of loops I should be trying to make, but also for how to hold the needles, keep tension on the yarn, and why it makes more sense to use one technique instead of another. Great lesson!

Clay, 1 lesson with Jamie

Creative tutor!
