Hello, my name is Jaime! I have recently relocated back to my hometown of Houston and am available for tutoring and music lessons. I was a substitute teacher in Brooklyn, NY for the past 2 years. Before that, I worked as a certified public school teacher (Grades 1 and 5) for 3 years. I also instructed private music lessons for 2 years and I have experience tutoring scholars with special needs. I love working one-on-one with children and tailoring to their specific needs so that they have the most success. It's important for scholars to work hard and to take pride in their accomplishments, so as an educator I strive to encourage scholars through academic difficulties and to praise them for their successes and for trying their best. I was trained in reading instruction primarily through the Texas Literacy Initiative and am also trained in the Lucy Calkins curriculum. If you have any questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me :) Thank you!
