About Jaime

I am an experienced teacher and tutor enthusiastic about helping students in writing, literature, grammar, study skills, and college prep. I have a Master's degree in English from Indiana University with an emphasis on teaching composition, and I have taught and tutored at a variety of colleges and universities, including Indiana University, Wake Technical Community College, and the University of Tennessee.

I use a student-centered approach to teaching and tutoring, working to develop lessons that are focused on your individual needs. I work to break down difficult concepts into smaller, more manageable tasks to which are designed to help you overcome the challenges of reading and writing. For example, I often work with students on how to write strong paragraphs, an area with which many students struggle. A lesson on this topic would include an overview of a paragraph and how in functions in various contexts of writing along with individual practice that involves analysis and hands-on learning. You would practice identifying various elements of paragraph structure and then work to include such elements as you write your own work. You would reinforce this knowledge through revision and reflection that helps you understand WHY paragraphs have specific elements and HOW they function.

Although most students believe they are not "good" writers, I believe strongly in fostering student voices and helping students draw on their own varied experiences with language to improve their academic performance. I believe strongly that all students are capable of success and all students have important things to say; my job is to help you discover the strategies and skills that maximize your potential. We work hard, but we have fun, too.

Along with writing, I have tutored high-school and college students in other areas such as reading comprehension, study skills, test taking, and time management. I have worked extensively with EFL students to hone their English skills.

If you are learning English or are a student struggling with study skills, writing, reading, or literature, I can help, and I look forward to talking more about how we can work together!

Approved subjects

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.

Study Skills

I am an experienced teacher and tutor and have worked with high school and first-year college students to improve reading, writing, and study skills at Indiana University, Wake Technical Community College, and the University of Tennessee. I use a student-centered approach, helping students recognize and understand their strengths and weaknesses so that together we can identify the best strategies and methods for learning. The more a student understands about herself and her learning, the more successful she'll be.
