My name is Jacob and I am one of the few out there who enjoys mathematics of any kind. I have also played in the school concert band for many years and now I am playing in an Orchestra. I played tennis on the high school team for 4 years. Because I am a very logical person math comes naturally to me as well as music.
Right now I am going to Sonoma State University working on my BA in Mathematics, hoping to one day become a high school teacher. I have tutored some of my friends and I have found to really enjoy it while getting the message across clearly. I like to tutor by teaching the meaning of the equation, not just, "Here's how to do it so do it." In other words, I will show the student not only what to do, but why and how to do it. I'm here to prove that math is not a magical mystery, and to show that there is a reasonable explanation behind all math procedures. This in turn will broaden the understanding of the student.
I look forward to assisting in the growth of anyone I can. I can teach ping-pong, tennis, trumpet, baritone, trombone, and most importantly Mathematics of any kind.
