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.
If you’re interested in working with me, feel free to send me an email and inquire about my availability. I tutor within 5 miles of Rockville at $60/hr and $70/hr for home visits.
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.
Thoughtful — 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. ...
