About Jamie

I have been teaching and tutoring for over ten years. I have a M.Ed. in elementary education with an endorsement in Special Education (K-12). I love working with children and specialize in teaching children that have learning differences. I believe children learn best using multi-sensory techniques, constant positive reinforcement, repetition, and rewards/lessons that are based on each child's unique interests/strengths/needs. I teach a vowel based phonics program that is similar to Orton Gillingham. I teach all subjects but specialize in phonics, reading, study skills, organization and executive functioning skills. I have a great rapport with kids and especially enjoy working with kids age 4 to 14. One to one tutoring is an excellent way for children to learn and reach their potential. It is so rewarding to see a child make progress and begin to love learning.

I currently teach until 6:00 pm every week night. I am available weeknights after 6 and Sunday afternoons. I can come to you or meet you at a library. I will bring all needed supplies and materials. I use sticker and reward incentives to help motivate children to achieve. I challenge children while setting attainable goals. I am patient, friendly and love building students confidence and self-esteem. I communicate easily with parents and school staff to make sure I'm providing lessons that will build in skills taught at school. I look forward to working with your child!
