My name is Jaison, I hold a doctorate in physics from the College of William and Mary, and I want to teach math and physics! My 14 years of professional experience span both education and research. As an educator, I currently teach precalculus at Howard Community College and have been a tutor, grader, laboratory assistant, and laboratory instructor. As a private tutor, I have accumulated over 850 hours helping primary and secondary students make sense of math and physics. And as a research scientist, I am a published author and have conducted research in nonlinear dynamics and ocean acoustics.
My teaching focuses on understanding concepts, connecting disparate concepts into a coherent whole and competency in problem solving. Every student has different needs so my approach is fluid. Some need homework help, others need a plan to backtrack and review algebra. Some need to see every step in a solution while others just need a little explaining for a concept to make sense. Some lack confidence, others lack motivation. Whatever the case may be, everyone has their story and the potential for success.

Jaison really wants his students to "get it", not just going through homework and quizzes and the like. I learn real concepts and come away from each session with a skill that I can apply moving forward.
My son was struggling with Algebra concepts and I can say that Jaison has been instrumental in clarifying many of the concepts for my son and his feeling comfortable with math. Yesterday we got his latest grading card and he was back as a straight A's student. Thanks Jaison!
You're very welcome Jose! Please congratulate him for me. I'm proud of him for making straight A's again!
Jaison continues to make sure that my young adult son (who has special needs) is focused and gently pushes him to work on more difficult tasks. He makes my son feel proud of what he accomplishes each week!
Thanks for the kind words Mimi!
Jaison is tutoring my daughter in AP Calculus. He's taking the time to identify foundational concepts that she has problems with that are preventing her from understanding calculus. By working with her on these concepts (mainly ones that she has forgotten or never learned from algebra II), her attitude is changing from feeling that she just can't learn calculus to a sense that she's very capable of it with hard work in the right areas. He's very patient and is building her confidence, both of which are key to enabling her to excel. I'm very very happy that we found Jaison.
Three months since my original review and we couldn't be happier with Jaison. My daughter has gone from almost failing AP Calculus to having a B. Jaison continues to patiently identify her areas of weakness and find ways to help her understand. He is a wonderful tutor!
Jaison has been a great tutor for my son, an eighth grader who is taking algebra. He is very serious about his job but, at the same time he is very patient with his student. He totally understands his student's age and his needs. He knows the material very well and is able to answer all his questions. He pays attention to all details about his students, their abilities, and weaknesses. You know that by reading his reports after each class. He is also very flexible with schedule. He is a great communicator. His respond to emails are very quick. My son has been very lucky to have Jaison as his tutor. For above reasons we call him a GREAT TUTOR.
I met with Jaison for the first time on Friday evening. We went over a few problems that he asked me to work on ahead of time and he was able to explain in simple terms what I missed. He has always been very responsive via email and tries to ensure that all of your questions are answered and gives next steps. Wonderful first-time experience with a tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.
I took a semester of Discrete Math in College and earned an A in the class. Discrete math accompanies a degree in computer science. I also took three semesters of coding in C++ and have an immense amount of programming experience in my various research projects. Furthermore, most of my research falls under the heading of applied mathematics so I feel that I am more than qualified to tutor this subject.
