About Jamie


Bio

I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2016 with two degrees: a B.A. in Psychology with an English minor and a B.S. in Chemistry with a Mathematics minor. My college experience taught me that I had a wide range of skills in a variety of areas and that I wanted to be involved in a little bit of everything academically. Currently, I am working to obtain my teaching license. My first endorsement will be in Chemistry and later I would like to add English and Mathematics to my teaching...

I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2016 with two degrees: a B.A. in Psychology with an English minor and a B.S. in Chemistry with a Mathematics minor. My college experience taught me that I had a wide range of skills in a variety of areas and that I wanted to be involved in a little bit of everything academically. Currently, I am working to obtain my teaching license. My first endorsement will be in Chemistry and later I would like to add English and Mathematics to my teaching endorsements.

For my last two years of college, I worked in the Writing Center which specialized in providing peer tutoring to students in their writing classes. I was granted the opportunity to work with students in many disciplines with their writing. Most of our clientele was students seeking help with their composition one papers; therefore, my main tutoring focus was on writing. On the other hand, we were not solely limited to helping students write and edit papers. We were also responsible for helping students in technical areas, such as chemistry and engineering, as well as creating and presenting workshops on the intricacies of writing. While working here, I found that I had a unique interest in poetry, which led me to pursue a minor in English. Recently, I worked at my Alma mater high school helping to prepare students for their English state test. I found tutoring rewarding from the knowledge I was able to provide to young minds. I encourage my students to think outside the box and apply their lesson to more than just the classroom. I enjoy watching students light up when they have mastered a new concept or skill.

I have always been proficient in math and it is one of my favorite subjects. Although numbers may be difficult for some people, I find them to be interesting and able to provide a wealth of knowledge. The skills used for solving algebra problems may be applied to other areas.

My first few years of college was spent working on my psychology degree, while the last two years I focused on chemistry by working in a research lab and conducting experiments. I spent the majority of my time writing lab reports and understanding the many properties of chemicals for my chemistry classes. Psychology helped me to better understand human nature and research methods associated with the soft science.

I am fortunate to have over two years worth of tutoring experiencing in English and writing. I completed a great deal of courses in English literature and poetry writing while in college. I find analyzing literature and writing to be very therapeutic and thought provoking.

I look forward to working with many students in multiple areas. I welcome feedback from students and parents, and I will provide lessons catered to the learning style of each individual student. I am easy to reach and will respond to inquiries quickly, regardless of the time of day. Feel free to contact me for more information and to set up a lesson!
