About Jamie

I recently moved to the Philadelphia area and would be happy to work with you on chemistry or math! I have tutored students in a variety of math and science subjects from the elementary through college levels. My expertise is in chemistry working with high school and college students. I recently completed my PhD in organic chemistry at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Illinois Wesleyan University where I graduated magna cum laude. I have been tutoring students since high school and I have been working with Wyzant since September of 2009. I have worked with a variety of students, and I've learned to tailor my teaching style to the needs of my students.

I'm currently available evenings Monday-Thursday with more availability Friday-Sunday. I would be happy to offer a discount for multi-hour sessions, or for sessions taking place in the Fishtown neighborhood.

Please contact me if you have any questions at all!

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.

Algebra 1

I have a lot of experience teaching math to elementary and high school students. As a chemists, math is an important part of my job and I enjoy working with students in geometry and algebra. I use multiple strategies to explain concepts and work to find the approach that works best for you.

Chemistry

I earned my PhD in organic chemistry at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2013. I am now a college professor teaching organic chemistry and biochemistry. I've tutored in these subjects, as well as general chemistry.

Jamie has worked with my sophomore to gain ground in Chemistry for 4 sessions. Each session gets more targeted, working up to comprehensive finals next week. My daughter is more confident and listens better as a result of her time with Jamie. And she now has a role model for a strong woman who loves science. Her words, "crazy smart"!
