I have ten years experience tutoring high school and college students in chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical or analytical), physics and mathematics (geometry, calculus and algebra) on both a one on one level as well as in big groups. My undergraduate was a major in chemistry with a minor in math after which I completed a masters in chemistry. I was the top student in all my chemistry classes, so I have a clear understanding of all the concepts to do with chemistry. I will be able to help you or your child to understand these concepts, using real life examples, and will also be able to coach you to the techniques which will enable you to answer them every time.

I tutor because I love working with children. I am happy to work with anyone who is willing to work and am very patient with students as they try to understand new concepts. I have been in the Glenview area the past four years and have tutored high schoolers from Notre Dame, New Trier, GBS, GBN, Deerfield High, Loyola Academy and Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart. So if you are really struggling with chemistry or math or just want to improve your grades I'm the guy for you.

Excellent Tutor! — Jason is an excellent tutor. He is professional, focused, and patient. My daughter felt he was able to explain why they were doing the math steps as they went along. She is in a college level logic class, and I think there is some implied math knowledge that she should have gotten in high school that she needed to have explained to her, so she could be successful in her college class.
