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.

Approved subjects

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.

Discrete Math

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.

Hi omar, First, lets make sure we know exactly what we need to find. Three consecutive integers, so there are three unknowns. We could start out by saying that each of these integers needs a label: x1, x2, and x3. But the key piece of information here is the word consecutive, meaning following...

Think of it as adding two numbers 16 + 1/2 (When you say "16 and a half", using the conjunction and is a way of saying add the two numbers) You can't add them until they have the same denominator. In front of 16 is the implied 1, or 16(1). It may seem silly to write (1) since multiplication...

Hi Karen, Maybe this will help. Let's break it down into little pieces so bear with me! First, go by the DEFINITION of the absolute value.  |x| = x if its positive or -x if x is negative. So, lets consider something simple. |x| = 3. You know that x = 3  and -3. So, you know that...

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. ...
