About Jamie


Bio

Hello! My name is Jamie Whittington and I graduated from BYU with a degree in Math Education. I've taught math professionally now at both the high school and college levels, but I've also tutored many students at the elementary and middle school levels as well. I've been tutoring students in math for over 10 years now and I love it!

In addition to teaching math, I have experience teaching Spanish, ESL classes, dance and piano. I've spent a lot of time studying language and the arts...

Hello! My name is Jamie Whittington and I graduated from BYU with a degree in Math Education. I've taught math professionally now at both the high school and college levels, but I've also tutored many students at the elementary and middle school levels as well. I've been tutoring students in math for over 10 years now and I love it!

In addition to teaching math, I have experience teaching Spanish, ESL classes, dance and piano. I've spent a lot of time studying language and the arts which has really helped me to approach teaching math from a different perspective. I've received many compliments from students who struggle with math saying that I'm able to explain math in a way that they can understand. So if you need tutoring in Math, Spanish, ESL, or Music Theory/Piano, I hope you'll reach out to me!

Math never came easy to me growing up, but I had a strong desire to understand it. I worked really hard and am now able to teach math in a way that struggling math students can relate to and understand. I believe that because I've struggled with math in the past, I understand what other students are thinking and I'm able to correct their thinking and make connections to what they already know.

I hope that you'll reach out to me! Not only am I confident that I can help you understand the material that you're studying, but I'm hoping as well that you'll have a fun time with me! I love teaching and I love getting to know others and finding how we relate to each other!

Spanish,

Spanish

I took Spanish Language classes in both high school and college, but most of my learning came when I spent 2 years living with Latinos learning their language. After those 2 years I was fluent enough in Spanish to teach it at the high school level. I can read, write and speak Spanish at an advanced level.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I got my BS degree in Math Education and since then have taught math at the middle school, high school and college levels. I have also taught classes and done private tutoring for ACT, SAT and GRE prep. I have been tutoring people individually for over 10 years and I love working with people one on one. I feel I do a very good job explaining difficult concepts in a simple, easy to understand way (and most of my students feel the same). I have been able to help students who thought they would never be able to pass their math class not only pass those classes, but also decide they actually enjoy math! I was a student who struggled with math growing up but everything changed for me once I got a good math teacher! I strive to be that kind of a teacher for all of my students too.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I come from a religious family and have been studying the scriptures from the time I was a little girl. In addition to attending a Sunday school starting at age 12, I completed a four-year Seminary program while in High School. I took over 10 different religion classes during my Undergraduate studies and continue to take Institute classes in my spare time. I served as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where I taught from the scriptures daily and I've had numerous responsibilities in my church to teach from the scriptures as well.
