All of Jacob’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Jacob’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ACT English

I have worked with thousands of students to help them identify the most most common errors on the exam. My scores are perfect every time and your student's can be too. I'm a credentialed teacher with 10 years of experience. I have a Master's degree in Life Sciences and I have studied the exam rigorously over the years to become an expert in the field. My average score improvement is 4 points on the ACT--some students score as much as 8 to 10 points higher!

ACT Science

I have a bachelor's degree in Biology and a Master's degree in Agriculture. Over the years, I've taught Chemistry, Environmental Science, Biology, Oceanography, and Marine Biology to high school students in both public and private schools. I'm an expert at interpreting graphs and charts and I can help your student to hone their skills on the ACT science section. I guarantee an improvement of 3-5 points!

Biology

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelors in Biology and I graduated again with distinction from Virginia Tech with a Master's in Agriculture and Life Sciences. I taught high school science in the public schools for years and was a lead teacher. I've studied the AP exams rigorously over the years to become a test expert.

PSAT

The PSAT is exactly half the full SAT without the essay. It takes students 1.5 hours to complete the 2 critical reading sections, 2 math sections and one grammar section. I've developed a way to help sophomore and juniors finish each section on time, with less test fatigue. With my help, your student could score over 2150, allowing them to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. I've had 4 students go on to win this prestigious award.

SAT Math

I have worked with thousands of students to help them identify the most most common errors on the exam. My scores are perfect every time and your student's can be too. I'm a credentialed teacher with 10 years of experience. I have a Master's degree in Life Sciences and I have studied the exam rigorously over the years to become an expert in the field. My average score improvement is 256 points on the SAT--some students score as much as 400 points higher!

SAT Reading

Over the past 10 years, I have read every essay that the SAT has released. I have identified 3 critical tricks that are used in the answer choices to confuse students. In addition, I've developed a way to help every student finish the test on time, every time. The critical reading timing is essential and that is where most students suffer the most damage to their score.

SAT Writing

I have studied the SAT intensely over the last 10 years, developing a program to help students overcome the difficulties of the SAT writing test. There are just 5 major errors that I have identified. I'll help your student to become systematic about identifying these errors so they never miss!

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
