What Our Customers Have to Say

Jenny A.

“...the "Erin Brockovich" of education!”

Can I give 10 stars? Lisa Priest and Jessica Stiffel absolutely deserve that and more! Lisa is so caring and extremely knowledgeable and my little 2nd grader's IEP is beyond what I could've ever expected. Jessica Stiffel is her tutor and she's made huge academic strides. My daughter is so shy and Jessica has helped her on so many levels. The bond they have created in less than 1 year is unbreakable. Lisa is the "Erin Brockovich" of education! 🙂 Don't hesitate to contact Jamie the Tutor for your child's needs!

“Thank you seems insufficient...”

It has been almost one full year that we have been working with Jamie The Tutor LLC and boy what a difference a year can make. After a horrible 3rd grade experience where my son was almost retained we reached out to Jamie, and along with her sister Lisa (child advocate) and my son’s tutor Jamie Herman he has passed the 4th grade with all A’s and B’s and has passed all of his promotional criteria based test!!! Thank you seems insufficient for the difference I see in my son and his school work. It takes a village and We are very grateful to have this team as a part of ours!!

Jazmin C.

“I don’t know what I would have done...”

I am so grateful to Lisa Priest for doing such an excellent job in advocating for my son. I don’t know what I would have done without her knowledge and assistance during our I.E.P. meetings.

Stacy U.

“Jamie has literally saved my daughter.”

Jamie has literally saved my daughter. My 6 year old ended first grade with an IEP and regular tutor only knowing 30 site words and reading at a kindergarten level. Within 3 months of tutoring with a Jamie she knows 100 site words and reading on her own on level G books which is first grade level at 7. She is my guardian angel and no words can express what she has done. Lisa her sister has also been my daughters advocate for IEP meetings. Jamie is the best!!!!!

Cara K.

“She is an amazing educational advocate!”

Lisa Priest attended my son's 504 meeting with me. She is an amazing educational advocate! With Lisa’s expertise she was able to make sure my son has all the resources and support he needs for the upcoming school year. She has such a pleasant demeanor and clearly has a nice rapport with the staff at my son’s school. If you are looking for someone to assist you with the IEP or 504 process I highly recommend Lisa! I feel much more at ease about the upcoming school year because of all her help.

Betty O.

“At a time when we felt pretty helpless; she was able to help...”

My husband and I hired Lisa mid way through the school year to assist us with our son, Richard, who attends a school that we believe failed him many times over. Richard is a highly intelligent 7 year old on the Spectrum who was mainstreamed 2 years ago. Unfortunately, often times this transition comes with little to no support. Lisa Priest is a rock star! At a time when we felt pretty helpless; she was able to help us get Richard the resources and support he will need to be successful. We will be forever grateful for her professionalism, knowledge and ability to get things done. Thank you, Lisa

Amanda F.

“Words cannot express how grateful we are...”

When we realized that our daughter was having issues learning how to read and needed more support in school, we were not sure where to turn. At first, we hired an advocate who was inattentive and seemed "too busy" for us. That's when we turned to Lisa Priest for help. Words cannot express how grateful we are that we found Lisa. She immediately jumped into action, provided us with a solid recommendation for a private psychologist for testing, did a thorough review of our daughter's school records, and prepared for the most important IEP meeting we have had to date - end of Kindergarten in preparation for 1st Grade. At the meeting, Lisa was prepared, professional, and truly knew her stuff! She impressed the entire team with her knowledge of the law and ideas for drafting quality goals that could be properly monitored. We are beyond grateful for Lisa's assistance and know that our daughter will benefit from having her as part of our team. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Denise S.

“...helped SO much in rendering the appropriate services...”

I just want to give a HUGE thanks to Lisa Priest!!! She is absolutely amazing and her expertise was invaluable!! As a parent, navigating the waters of ESE can be very challenging and frustrating at times. Her knowledge and understanding of the law as it applies to ESE services helped SO much in rendering the appropriate services for my 7 yr old who struggles with Dyslexia. I am one happy mama, I could cry! My child has already begun receiving her services and she's is so happy and excited to be meeting and learning with her "TUTOR" (as she calls it!) 🙂 🙂 🙂 10 stars to Lisa!!!!!

Lori L.

“...now he is working above grade level...”

I am so thankful for everything Jamie and her tutors have some for both my kids. My son has struggled with comprehension since kindergarten. He is now in 5tth grade and we started with Jamie amd Daniele over the summer and now he is working above grade level and his confidence has grown. My daughter is in kindergarten and we also used Jamie's tutoring and now my daughter is reading and writing and also working above grade level. Lisa Priest is the child advocate and because of her knowledge and expertise my son was qualified for an IEP and now gets extra daily help from school. Lisa fought for my son as if he was her own. I will always be greatful for the support they have given me and my children.

“Lisa really did the best job of advocating...”

We learned about Lisa Priest after one mom recommended her. After meeting Lisa, we knew that she is the one who can definitely help. We cannot even express how happy and grateful we are with Lisa. She is our third advocate. We had really lost our hopes of getting the services with this school even after so many IEP meetings. But Lisa really did the best job of advocating and helped a lot by adding services for my kid. She is thorough, detailed, very knowledgeable and she really understood the needs of the child. Thank you, Lisa, for all you have done for our child and we could not have done without your help!!! You are the best!!!

Christine L.

“She gave me the guidance...”

Lisa is amazing! My girls had a tough year last year and I was determined not to repeat it. Lisa was great. She is very knowledgeable and very thorough. She gave me the guidance and helped get my girls what they needed moving forward. As a mom you are emotional going through things and may not understand everything that is told to you so with her by your side you don’t have to worry because she has it all handled! Thank you again Lisa!!!! Couldn’t have gotten where we are with out you:)

“...we have watched his learning grow by leaps and bounds.”

Jamie Blatt has tutored our son, Spencer for the last two years and we have watched his learning grow by leaps and bounds.
Now we have one of her advocates to be grateful for. Lisa Priest just attended our parent conference at Spencer's school and was instrumental in voicing our concerns and achieving Spencer's accommodations moving forward.
Feeling very grateful for Jamie the Tutor and Lisa Priest.

Diana R.

“...the sole reason behind his reading progress.”

We have been working with Jamie & Lisa Priest for over a year. One of Jamie’s tutors, Hilary, has been amazing with our son. She engages him and is the sole reason behind his reading progress. Lisa Priest has been invaluable in helping us obtain an IEP. When the IEP wasn’t being executed fully, she helped us through the interim IEP process ensuring our son received the services and accommodations he deserves. I know I have an advocate that I can turn to for even the simplest questions. We couldn’t have done it without Lisa’s help. We are grateful to have her on our side!

Asha W.

“She helped put together a plan...”

I was extremely pleased by the services provided by Lisa Priest, the educational advocate. She is knowledgeable, sharp, practical, creative and professional all at the same time. She helped put together a plan from which my son is truly benefiting and for that I am very grateful.

Zaccha R.

“...extremely knowledgeable and kind.”

I want to thank Lisa for helping out so much and being a voice for us. She is extremely knowledgeable and kind. I'd recommend her to anyone who needs an advocate for special needs in school. I don't think I would've found anyone better.

Maura L.

“...a wonderful resource for my two children...”

Jamie the Tutor has been a wonderful resource for my two children. Jamie is kind, thoughtful, and passionate for providing the gift of literacy to all children, especially those with dyslexia. Jamie is exceptionally talented at matching the personalities between tutors to students. As a teacher myself, I trust Jamie to continue working with our children for as long as they have educational needs to be addressed. Thank you Jamie, for the important services you provide!

Anne S.

“...my husband and I are delighted...”

We have been using Jamie the Tutor's services for about 8mos now, and my husband and I are delighted with the progress we've seen in our children. We have four kids, all of whom have dyslexia, and one of whom is additionally impacted by an intellectual disability. They are in grade school. Jamie has paired each of our children with an appropriately qualified, excellent tutor. For the first time, I actually have hope that my children will read. And for the first time, one of my sons has started to ask to read with me. He had shut down entirely before we started using Jamie's services - he didn't want to go to school, was losing confidence and having headaches/belly aches before school. He is a bright, inquisitive child but absolutely was unable to read/not progressing with traditional reading techniques applied in his public school. As his peers transitioned from 'learning to read' to 'reading to learn', my son was not even able to tackle simple one syllable words. His third grade teacher in our local school actually suggested that not 'all children are capable of learning to read'. To see him blossom and to now have skills to tackle text has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had as a mom. It is possible for children with dyslexia to learn to read and write - they just need a structured format like orton gillingham and qualified tutors to intervene. I highly recommend Jamie the Tutor's services.

Monique P.

“...above and beyond...”

Jamie the tutor is a wonderful company that really cares about children and does everything in their power to help them. I’ve been using Lisa as my children’s advocate for years now. She has gone above and beyond to make sure my children receive everything they need in school in order to become thriving adults. I couldn’t have asked or found anyone better to help my children with their dyslexia. One of my boys went into middle school with a 1st grade reading level and because of Lisa and Jamie my son is finally reading and closing his reading Gap. She has also made sure my twins got the Early intervention they needed in order to remediate their dyslexia as well. Dyslexia is something that will never go away but can be helped. Lisa thought me that with the right intervention any child can learn to read . I would recommend Lisa and Jamie with my eyes closed to help any child get the support and services they may need. Love love Lisa and Jamie the tutor.

“We recommend them highly!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

After years struggling to find a program best meeting my 17-yr old daughter’s significantly delayed literacy needs and an instructor whose expertise includes teaching students with dual diagnoses like Down syndrome and Autism so she’s engaged by the academic instruction, we have found both with Jamie the Tutor and her multi-Sensory approach to learning. It’s easy to give up on the possibility of what our children can learn and achieve, and Jamie the Tutor’s instructors and methodologies have given us renewed hope and trust about the successful outcomes that are possible for our daughter by working their program to fidelity. We recommend them highly!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jessica M.

“Jamie and her team are exceptionally thorough, kind, attentive...”

We have been using Jamie the Tutor for the past year and can’t foresee a time when we won’t utilize their services. Jamie and her team are exceptionally thorough, kind, attentive and really care about my daughter. My rising 6th grader has shown so much improvement over the past year in both academics and in her attitude towards learning. Highly recommend!

Lynn W.

“...has 100% exceeded all expectations and has put their education and needs above all.”

Jamie’s commitment to our children’s education has been selfless and profound. She has 100% exceeded all expectations and has put their education and needs above all. We are so grateful to her. Her team has allowed us to get on the right path so that we can effectively navigate through their needs on-going .THANK YOU Ms Jamie.

“Jamie has been working with our family for the past 9 years.”

Jamie has been working with our family for the past 9 years. She has been very attentive to our children's needs both academically and cares deeply about their overall well-being. Not only has she been helpful to my children, I am pursuing my masters degree and with Jamie's guidance it has made it easier for me to achieve my goals. We are very grateful for Jamie!

Amy R.

“Jamie The Tutor is an amazing company.”

Jamie The Tutor is an amazing company. My daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia and was provided the appropriate individualized intensive research based program to help meet her needs. Jamie along with her team is very trustworthy, educated and professional. Quoting my daughter, “I have learned so much from Jamie”. After completing her program she is now on grade level and continues to grow to reach her maximum potential.

Kendra F.

“Her team is comprised of educational professionals...”

I am so grateful to have found Jamie the Tutor. I suspected my daughter may have some learning challenges and I called Jamie 3.5 years ago. She was able to administer some diagnostic tests to determine what challenges my daughter was having. Jamie's advocacy person was able to help guide me through the process with the school to get an IEP for my daughter. Jamie has training with Orton Gillingham which is recommended for children with dyslexia. Her team is comprised of educational professionals and she is able to match you with someone to help your child. I met Jamie when my daughter was in 2nd grade and now she's in 5th grade and thriving. I credit the weekly tutoring and educational support from Jaime for a lot of my daughter's success. She's really helped to focus on the very specific learning challenges my daughter has and also help her build skills and confidence. I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie the Tutor to anyone who has a child that is struggling. It's worth a consultation to see if her team can help.

“…all while building fun into the session…”

Jamie has been working with my child since the beginning of summer on reading/comprehension and touch math. Her ability to work with children is extraordinary. I am so impressed with her ability to keep on task, redirect, and handle any unwanted behaviors. My child went from hating math to loving it! She goes above and beyond to build confidence in the child all while building fun into the session with games. She provides parents with activities to re-mediate on their own! She’s a blessing!

Kara F.

“She’s the best!!!”

Jamie has been working with my son for the past few months. I’ve never seen him so confident before about his math and reading skills. She’s the best!!!

Stacie B.

“Her multisensory approach is working wonders.”

We are so grateful for the services provided by Jamie the Tutor. My daughter is thriving under her tutelage. Her multisensory approach is working wonders. Additionally, because of Lisa Priest’s knowledge and expertise as a child advocate, my daughter is being provided everything she needs to be successful in the public school system. Lisa Priest works tirelessly and passionately to make sure every child receives what is fair and appropriate.

Stacey B.

“…help fight for the services my daughter deserves…”

I cannot begin to say enough amazing things about both Jamie Blatt and her sister Lisa Priest. Jamie has been working with my daughter for just a few months now, and the growth and progress we have seen is remarkable. My daughter loves and looks forward to her tutoring sessions. Lisa has been working tirelessly as my advocate to help fight for the services my daughter deserves in school, and my daughter, thanks to Lisa, got everything she needed! Without Lisa’s expertise and hard work, this would have never happened! I highly recommend Jamie for tutoring and Lisa if you need a parent advocate to fight for what your child needs in school.

Katrina S.

“We did it! We sure did it!!!!!”

Throughout the entire experience which has been 1 year with my daughter and obtaining an IEP for her, Lisa has directed me in the right direction. She has kept my nerves at a minimum with her words of love and compassion while keeping my spirits up and keeping a winning spirit. Lisa is outstanding with her knowledge of the laws, regulations and special niches within the system that can help us as parents rather than being a hindrance. Thank you, Lisa, for all you have done for me and the family! I so appreciate your knowledge, your compassion and your empathy for my daughter and your fight for knowing what is right in the world of Special Education. We did it! We sure did it!!!!!

Kim M.

“… able to help our son to obtain eligibility…”

Jamie was recommended to us by a friend who uses her. My 7 yr old son had been struggling for quite some time, first with letter recognition and letter sounds, then beginning to read. Jamie did an extensive assessment and was able to help us learn what was going on with our child. Our son has dyslexia and needed a multi sensory reading program in order to learn how to read. Together with her sister Lisa whom is a parent advocate, they guided us through the RTI process in the public school system and eventually together they were able to help our son to obtain eligibility for an IEP as well as obtain a multi sensory reading program at our elementary school. With out the help of both Jamie and Lisa, I think we would still be struggling to receive the help our son needed through the public school system.Our child is very lucky to have ended up in these ladies qualified hands. We are excited as we watch our son start to enjoy school! To feel accomplished and catching up to his peers. It is amazing to watch him blossom! I cannot thank Jamie and Lisa enough for all they have done for our son and family.

"…able to fill in all of the gaps in my child’s phonics…”

I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing Jamie and her sister Lisa are!! I found Jamie after years of my daughter resisting ANY tutor. I knew that my daughter had a reading comprehension issue, but school testing was taking too long and since she was going to be tested by the school, paying a psychiatrist $3,000 didn’t seem necessary. Well, Jamie did her own extensive testing and totally pinpointed my daughters comprehension issue!!! In about 20 tutoring sessions(and we are not stopping) Jamie has been able to fill in all of the gaps in my child’s phonics and really help her become a better reader in just a few months. She is an amazing tutor and my daughter absolutely adores her!! Lisa I have known for many years. My daughter started to struggle and I turned to her teacher who put her in RTI last year. Many many months pass And after I left an RTI meeting last year I just had a feeling that my daughters “amazing Parkland school” was not doing something right. I cannot get into too many details but let me just say, I am here now less than a year later and thanks to Lisa my daughter is now receiving services from the district that she should have got a year ago. I regret not calling Lisa earlier. I will NOT go to a meeting without her as she is AMAZING at what she does. The point of all this is my daughter!! And I cannot thank Jamie and Lisa enough!!! I am happy to say my daughter is doing great in school again and happy!!!

“…tremendous academic growth in both of my sons.”

I am so thrilled with the services provided at Jamie The Tutor. I have seen tremendous academic growth in both of my sons. They are being taught in a style that works best for them, while having so much fun. They have become more motivated and engaged in their learning. I highly recommend using this tutoring service. I have used other companies and they do not compare to the wonderful techniques provided by Jamie The Tutor.

Magaly P.

“…but against all odds, he did it !!”

When Jamie started to tutor my son, he was in Pre-K reading level. In just 7 months, my son jumped to 2nd grade reading level, surprising his school teachers and others who believed this kind of progress was not possible … but against all odds, he did it !! I don’t have words to express how grateful I am to Jamie, who not only provided my son the technics to succeed, but always believed he could ♡♡ I look forward to keep working with Jamie, and watch the amazing and unstoppable progress my son will be making ? Every kid learns differently that’s why multisensory education works !! Thanks Jamie !! We love you !! ?

Jamie Z.

“…because she is tailoring to your child’s needs…”

Jamie is amazing! She firsts does an extensive assessment to see where your child is at and customizes the sessions to your child’s needs. She makes learning fun. She is different than all the other tutors because she is tailoring to your child’s needs. My fifth grader is thriving because of her. She also is excited about reading. She is reading all the time. Before I couldn’t get her to pick up a book.  My daughter enjoys the sessions. Jamie gives her the tools she needs to help her succeed. We are very impressed!

Glen R.

“…he had made a Quantum Leap in his ability…”

Jamie was referred to us by my brother. Jamie had tutored his 6 and 9 year old kids and he was raving about their results. Our older son Ethan was 5 when we started with Jamie. He was not enjoying reading and in fact was resisting it as much as possible. My wife and I were frustrated, Ethan was frustrated, it wasn’t good. Jamie came and within one private lesson, she assessed his skills and immediately diagnosed the problem. Ethan did not fully comprehend the correct sounds of vowels and certain letters and consequently reading was a very frustrating experience for him. From that point Jamie gave us very specific and relatively simple exercises to work on with him that would correct the deficiencies that was holding him back. Within two weeks he had made a Quantum Leap in his ability to read that truly blew me away. We are grateful that we were introduced to Jamie and especially at the particular time we were because had she not recognized his challenges it’s certainly would have had a very strong and Lasting negative impact on his ability to read and his attitude towards reading for a long time.

Ingrid M.

“…knowledge and professionalism…”

When our sons elementary school informed us that he was “going to fail 2nd grade” and that we had one month to get him up to the appropriate reading level, we were pointed in the direction of Mrs. Lisa Priest. We had Mrs Priest serve as our family advocate to battle, yes, it was a BATTLE to ensure our son was getting the education he deserves. He has several learning deficiencies and the school was content on holding him back a year instead providing the proper assistance to ensure his success. Mrs. Priests’ knowledge and professionalism was beyond anything we could have imagined. Not only did our son PASS second grade, but he will be given the attention a child with his needs deserves. Mrs. Priest has been amazing and if anyone feels like they need an advocate to represent their child, Mrs. Priest is THE BEST. Thank you so much.

Kendra F.

“With Jamie the Tutor, you are in good hands.”

I just want to say that Jamie and Lisa from “Jamie the Tutor” were instrumental in helping us get our daughter some of the educational services she needs. Jamie did testing for us which helped us isolate some of the challenges our daughter had. Lisa gave us advice and direction on how we should proceed to make sure our daughter’s needs were served. With Jamie the Tutor, you are in good hands. I cannot recommend them enough and I am so grateful for the ways they helped our daughter.

Susan O.

“…finally getting the help she has needed…”

A huge THANK YOU to Lisa Priest and Jamie the Tutor!!!!!!!! To make a long story not so long, I hired Lisa after another mom referred me to her. We were working with another advocate but after one conversation with Lisa, I knew we needed her on board to help my daughter. After Lisa reviewed my daughter’s school records and Jamie the Tutor administered an assessment on my daughter, we called for an interim IEP meeting. We walked out of the meeting with my daughter’s IEP five pages longer full of services and accommodations which my daughter needs. Most notably, the school is implementing the Wilson Reading Program and it will be administered to my daughter 5 days per week for 55 min per day (in place of her elective)!!! The school did not have the program, but due to Lisa’s hard work and expertise, they have sent a teacher for certification and starting next week she will receive the Wilson. I can honestly say that Lisa and Jamie have been an answer to my prayers! After a lot of confusion and not knowing what to do to help my child, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief knowing that my daughter is finally getting the help she has needed for so long!

“You’re the best tutor ever!”

I highly recommend having your children work with Jamie. She is patient, encouraging and incorporates the Orton-Gillingham method into her tutoring. My son was struggling with reading and was barely able to move to the next grade when he was in elementary school. We had worked with several different tutors and they has helped a little, but my son was barely getting by during his first two years of school. Then we started using Jamie! Her methods are much more comprehensive as compared to standard tutoring. My son quickly gained confidence and has become a stronger reader. In fact, I was so impressed by what Jamie was teaching my son, I had my daughter, who was already a stellar student, work with Jamie too. Jamie is very patient. When Jamie first started working with my son, he was in tears when his sessions started. Now, he is in tears if he doesn’t meet with Jamie! My son has made an amazing transformation. He went from hating reading and writing to loving them both. I’m proud to announce that his favorite subject in school is now writing. He will often ask me if he can stay up past his bedtime to continue reading or to finish a current book. Additionally, on our most recent parent-teacher conference, the teacher commented that my son uses methods that Jamie has taught him to decipher more difficult words when he is reading. My sons tells Jamie all the time, “You’re the best tutor ever!”
