About Jamie

As a certified French educator in the state of Wisconsin since 1989, I understand how to manipulate the curriculum and tailor it to the needs of students, using traditional methods or with more advanced technology resources. I am familiar with the state and national standards and am a regular presenter at state and regional language conferences. I have been fortunate to receive awards and recognition for my ability to prepare students for college level French and to connect with at-risk students and see them reach their full potential.

I love tutoring because one on one and in a more casual environment, I can accomplish twice the results that are possible in a regular class setting. It always give me great pleasure to hear student success stories as well as satisfied customers who got the most out of their travel plans to Paris because they were able to communicate and establish a rapport with locals, not just as a tourist.

For those interested in piano tutoring or accompaniment, I am thrilled to work on all types of musical literature, classical or popular, jazz or Broadway. One is never too old to benefit from from the pleasure and gratification that music performance can bring to our lives!

With over 25 years of teaching experience in the classroom and traveling abroad with students, I have cultural knowledge far beyond the textbook. When I travel in Europe, I am mistaken for being Canadian, but never American, so you can be confident in my skills and accent!

With a piano performance minor, I have taught piano privately (combo of traditional note reading + Suzuki ear training) for beginners through young adults. I have also accompanied several high school musicals in the pit orchestra as well as several Beloit College recitalists and solo artists in regional and state competitions. My forte is accompanying vocalists and violinists since those are also talents I share and can advise.

If you are looking to travel abroad and need survival assistance or if you are a student looking to raise the bar in the classroom, I am the perfect resource! As an AP qualified educator, I have the tools to help you with basic skills up to taking the AP French Language & Culture Exam. As a musician, I can take tailor lessons for students of all levels or support you as an accompanist in your performance endeavors!

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.

Piano

I have a music minor in piano performance from Luther College. I studied under the great John Strauss, professor emeritus, performing both junior and senior solo recitals, which were optional. I am knowledgeable, a perfectionist in performance, excellent at differentiated instruction as well as following instruction from other musicians to adapt my accompaniment as needed (i.e., rubato, segue, key). I am an excellent sight reader and in my teaching techniques, I combine traditional with Suzuki methodologies to get better long-term results from student performance.
