Jamie has been tutoring my daughter since the spring of 2013. My daughter is in a Spanish immersion program. We felt she needed more help with reading comprehension and writing. Jamie has covered more than just the basics. She has given my daughter the gift of confidence. They have a mutual respect for each other and my daughter looks forward to their time together.
Jamie has been able to show my daughter different ways to find meaningful connections within the stories and books they read together. My daughter has become more expressive and creative with her Spanish writing as well as when speaking in Spanish, thanks to Jamie's help. I believe since my daughter has been working with Jamie she has become more of a critical thinker and an overall better student in both her immersion classes and non-immersion classes. I highly recommend Jamie.
Jamie has been an excellent Spanish 2 tutor for our high-school son. She is punctual, flexible, and responsive. She has a pleasant, calm and focused demeanor and I know she would relate well to any personality type. Jamie is clearly well-qualified and knowledgeable and she tailors individual sessions to the student and specific circumstances. Our son saw a significant improvement in his grades over the course of the academic year. It seems increasingly rare to find the work ethic and high level of professionalism that Jamie has demonstrated. It was a pleasure to work with Jamie and I recommend her without reservation.
We have worked with Jamie for over a year, and have been so pleased with her. She really helped our high school daughter improve her grades in Spanish. Jamie is very reliable, responsive, and flexible, and made learning Spanish fun. We couldn't be happier with her.
We have been delighted with Jamie Suria as a Spanish Tutor for our 7th Grade Daughter. Jamie is qualified to teach Spanish, punctual, professional friendly and trustworthy. I thoroughly recommend her.
Jamie really understands the FCPS Spanish 3 curriculum. She was able to jump right in and supplemented the classroom instruction to help my student understand the material. She is very patient and gave my student tips to help with PALS and tests.
My son had Jamie as a Spanish 2 tutor and he has really learned a lot. My son told me that Jamie tends to connect greatly with him. Jamie has a really good skill in creating lessons that are engaging and fun for the students while learning Spanish. My son told me that they did a variety of lessons for learning verbs and vocabulary, such as deciphering popular Spanish songs and watching Spanish videos. Jamie has done an excellent job as my son has gotten an A for the year in Spanish and much of the success stems from the tutoring lessons.
Jamie tutored our son in beginning Spanish. She came prepared with lessons and word cards. Our son was pronouncing words correctly after just one session. We were very pleased with Jamie's work and our son enjoyed working with her, too. Jamie was always punctual, professional, and very pleasant. Overall, we had an exceptional experience with Jamie, and I recommend her to everyone.
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.
