About Jaime

I have my undergraduate degree in industrial engineering from my country, Peru. I believe that a strong mathematics curriculum is very important. When tutoring mathematics to younger students, I had the opportunity to review the Massachusetts Mathematics benchmarks. This experience reinforced my interest in helping students develop mathematic skills and support them to do better in school.

The methodology that I use is hands-on, and the students are challenged to resolve the problems on their own from the very beginning. This allows me to gauge how comfortable and confident the student is with mathematics. Based on this initial reaction I am able to determine how to proceed and create a personalized study plan. The study plan builds on the student’s strengths, improving the student’s confidence level and gently introducing more advanced mathematical concepts.

From my experience supporting bilingual Spanish speaking students, I found that an area in need for improvement is word problems. Translating mathematical equations into word problems or vice versa seems to be challenging. However, once students practice and maintain a positive attitude towards mathematics, they will be able to succeed.

It would be an honor to be able to support Spanish Bilingual students from 1st to 4th grade but I am also available to teach algebra, arithmetic and geometry concepts to middle and high school students.
In addition to my knowledge in mathematics, I would gladly be able to tutor those who want to learn Spanish with an emphasis on conversation and pronunciation.
