About Jamie

I am a former middle year’s English teacher turned stay at home mom. I currently hold a Level II certification in 7-12 English and a Master’s in Education from Cabrini College. I also hold a Bachelor’s in Theater and English from Arcadia University. For a little over five years I taught Language Arts with the School District of Philadelphia. It was a remarkable time of professional and personal growth. Although I love being in the classroom, I decided to take a leave of absence in December of 2014 in order to stay at home full time with my two boys.

There are not many things in this world I would consider myself good at. I took piano lessons for several years, yet I am a mediocre player at best. After piano lessons, there were singing lessons. Those have proved very useful during karaoke nights. But when it comes to teaching, I’m good. My lesson planning combined with my enthusiasm for learning has led to my ability to be an effective and successful teacher. This September was the first school year since 2009 that I did not set up a classroom or prepare for my incoming students. To my surprise, it made me incredibly sad. I have decided that, while it’s important to my family to remain at full time, it is equally important that I continue teaching in some way. Tutoring is the perfect opportunity for me to stay connected to education while continuing to remain at home with my children.

As an English teacher, I am able to give support in all areas of literacy including, but not limited to, reading fluency and comprehension, both academic and creative writing, grammar, vocabulary development, and test taking strategies.

As your tutor, we will work together to make clear educational goals in order to develop a plan tailored to your needs. I will use different strategies that best fit your style of learning so that you will achieve success in all academic subjects where literacy is needed. Most importantly, I will help you to gain the confidence you need as you continue on your educational journey.
