Hello All,

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.

Sincerely,
Jacob

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

From a very young age I have played chess. I know the basic movements, names, and placements of all the pieces.

General Computer

I am a young person who knows how to use a computer well. I know how to use Microsoft word, email, and any online site. If you need general knowledge about using the computer or internet I can help.

General Music

I have played an instrument since I was 8 years old. I can read and teach general music reading in treble clef and bass clef. I know the what the markings on sheet music mean, as well as, all of the note names. I can teach the order of sharps and flats also.

Tennis

I have a passion for playing/ teaching tennis. I have played tennis for 4 years, two of them on high school varsity, and I am still going strong. If you are beginning or intermediate, I can assist you in developing your game.

Trumpet

I know the trumpet inside and out. I have played the trumpet since 5th grade. I have played in the school concert band, as well as, outside experiences, such as the bi-county honor band, youth symphony and now I play with the college orchestra. I have had many years of enjoyment playing an instrument and would like to share my enjoyment with others through this wonderful instrument.

Great Tutor!!! — Tutor time with Jacob is never a waste of time. He helps me really understand the material. Statistics is very challenging and hard for me to decipher but he finds ways and simple examples and explanations for me to understand it. I highly recommend Jacob and will use him again in the future! ...
