That Makes Sense

Learning Beyond the Classroom
With Jamie Silvett

If a student isn't understanding something it's not because they can't "get it" but rather it just hasn't been taught in a way that makes sense to them.  It is my job to find that explanation that clicks.

My Experience

I have 17 years experience teaching math. I started out my career as a math teacher with 10 years in the classroom at the middle school level. When my daughter was born I took a leave of absence and started private tutoring. I have enjoyed tutoring so much that I decided not to go back to the classroom and to continue tutoring as my career instead. I have now been doing private tutoring for last 7 years working with students of all ages.  (Most of my students and experience is with middle school and high school students though). I have worked with families who are choosing to homeschool as well as students who attend school full time and need the extra help. I am a credentialed math teacher and have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of San Diego and a Masters degree in Finance.

Who am I?

I am a math teacher, wife, and mom of two young kids living in Carlsbad, CA.  I love being outdoors and being active as well as hanging out at home with my kids doing art, boardgames, and puzzles.  As a family we love riding bikes, playing with our chocolate lab, going to the beach or local park, camping, and playing sports.  We are a house divided when it comes to baseball though, with half of us being Padres fans and the other (wiser) half being SF Giants fans.

Personalized Teaching Every Step of the Way

In-Person Session

Math Formulas

In person instruction from home or mutual meeting place.

If your student prefers working in person I am happy to come to you or meet at mutually agreed upon location.  I always work to learn each student's preferred learning style.  

*Must be near Carlsbad, CA for in person 

Online Session

Work Desk

Math tutoring from anywhere you can access the internet.

Whether I meet with students in person or remotely, I offer individualized lessons and a lot of patience. That’s why my Online Session is an ideal way to start making sense of math. Debating what is the best learning method for you? This is a great place to start.

Group Session


From small group tutoring to custom semester classes.

I can work with a group of students for tutoring or I can teach full semester classes. I can use a provided curriculum or create custom lessons.  I am able to completely tailor the class to your students' needs.
