About Jaimie

My love of teaching is rooted in my belief that knowledge is power. I believe all students should graduate high school with the tools to succeed academically in college and/or professionally. It is important that my students are ready and prepared for literacy in the 21st century. I am a first hand example that hard work and a desire to learn will pay off in the long run, and I believe that the words we write and verbalize have the power to change the course of the rest of our lives.

I have a background working with students with behavioral and emotional disorders for companies such as Devereux Foundation and Child Guidance Resource Centers, and I taught 10th grade English at STEM Academy High School in Chester, Pennsylvania. Most recently I have taken a position at Downingtown West High School as a building substitute.

My education and experience has given me a focus on writing (the writing process, research, editing, proofreading, etc), but I am trained in all aspects of the English language, and I am familiar with PSSA and Keystone State tests. After each lesson, I give feedback and suggestions for progress. I hold myself to high standards, therefore I ask for feedback after each session to assess my effectiveness.

I am a certified Middle and High School Teacher. And I am experienced with ESL/ESOL/ELL, ACT English, PSSA English, Keystone English, reading, writing, grammar, research, English and Technology.

I am interested in helping others succeed, learning about language, and learning more about cultures. I am also experienced with working with others with diverse cultures.

I teach private lessons from home, but I am happy to travel to a location that is more convenient for my students. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your endeavors.
