I have worked in Massachusetts public schools for 10 years as a certified, highly qualified teacher.  I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grade students in reading, writing, and math.  I strive to help children reach their full academic potential through individualized instruction.  I have helped many students that are behind academically to achieve grade level to above grade level expectations in multiple subject areas.  In addition to being a certified teacher, I have a Master's degree in Education through American International College and am CORI certified.  I offer year round tutoring with summer sessions, after school sessions, and Sunday sessions.  I live in Taunton, Massachusetts and service all of Bristol County, some areas in Plymouth County, and some areas in Norfolk County. I also service some towns in Rhode Island.   I would love to help your child succeed in academics!

Mrs. Jamie Leahy, M.Ed.

When are tutoring sessions available?

After school and Sunday tutoring sessions are available now! These sessions began in September and will continue through June.  Slots are still open!  Tutoring sessions are available on weekday evenings and on Sundays.  The most effective progress is made when the most time is invested! Therefore it is recommended that children participate in a minimum of 2 hours of tutoring per week but 3 to 6+ hours may be ideal depending on the goals you have for your child and their specific academic needs.   Times for tutoring are slotted on a first come, first served basis.  Tutoring sessions are not offered on holidays or during inclement weather days, but are available during most school vacation weeks.  

Why is tutoring important?

1. When a child participates in tutoring it:

  • provides them with support in academic areas that they are struggling in

  • builds their confidence as they become successful in those areas

  • ensures they have a strong foundation in elementary education which is crucial for their future studies

  • helps to prepare them for the next grade level

  • prevents academic regression of previously learned skills over the summer months

  • and helps to close any academic gaps in reading, writing, and math.

2. Tutoring helps younger children start kindergarten ahead of the curve academically.

3. Tutoring greatly benefits children on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) that have disabilities which effect their progress with the general school curriculum.  Mrs. Leahy is an extremely experienced special educator and can help your child succeed. 

4. Tutoring allows parents to be directly involved with their child's education.  Mrs. Leahy can provide specific activities for you to work on with your child outside of tutoring sessions and will guide you with how to help your child academically.  Parents can sit in on tutoring sessions, ask questions, and check in whenever they like.

5. For parents who home school their children, Mrs. Leahy's Private Elementary Tutoring is a great way to supply a full curriculum in the subject areas of reading, writing, and math from preschool to 3rd grade. 

How much does it cost?

The cost is $50 dollars per hour.  This provides your child with completely individualized instruction and 1 on 1 attention.  It is an investment that will ensure your child's success with elementary education.  You can pay on a weekly or bi-weekly basis through cash or check and you may stop tutoring services at any time.

TESTIMONIALS

"Mrs. Leahy is an exceptional tutor who helped my child overcome a learning disability that was causing him to fall behind his peers.  After only 6 months he made so much progress he advanced reading levels from 1st to 3rd grade and is starting 4th grade on track!  She also helped him improve in writing, spelling and mathematics.  She was always professional and focused on my child as an individual with unique skills and goals.  She made learning and challenging skills fun.  She provided me with detailed updates on his progress as well as goals for him to reach future milestones.  She was an immense support to me as well, as a parent, navigating this new challenge with my son.  Her tutoring services were so convenient and flexible, it made fitting them in over a busy summer schedule very doable.  I am so appreciative of all she has done for my son!"
