Background Check Status for Jesse T.

Jesse T. passed a background check on 6/11/13. The check was ordered by Jesse through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.

After sending a message to Jesse, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.

I completed my undergraduate degree in physics at Gordon College with minors in chemistry and math and have since attended one year of graduate school at Northeastern University. During my time in college I not only gained the requisite knowledge in theoretical and experimental physics, but also served as a research assistant and a teacher's assistant.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching, and my passion for physics is surpassed only by that of helping others to understand and appreciate physics themselves. In addition to physics, I am also well equipped to tutor students in math, as a significant part of understanding theoretical physics is also understanding the math behind it.

My goal as a tutor is not simply to help the student get a good grade in his or her class (though that is certainly an important part of it), but also to help the student gain a deep understanding and appreciation for the subject. A deep understanding will not only help the student naturally get a good grade in class, but will also develop the critical thinking and knowledge base necessary later in life (perhaps during college or at a job).

I have seen altogether too many examples where a student "learns" material for a test and then promptly forgets it afterward. To avoid this I prefer not to encourage rote memorization. Instead, I try to tailor my tutoring to whatever will help the student draw connections between the material and real life in an attempt to make the subject as intuitive as possible. Usually this involves doing lots of examples, discussing problem solving strategies and working through practice problems.

Jesse’s subjects

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of the fundamental tools used in theoretical physics. During my physics education it was necessary to become proficient in algebra. I've also had several years of experience tutoring high school students and non-science majors algebra.

Algebra 2

Calculus

Calculus is a powerful tool for understanding and modeling physical phenomena. As such it is used quite heavily in physics. During my undergraduate studies I took three calculus courses and then applied the knowledge gained therein in physics and chemistry courses.

Chemistry

I have a minor in Chemistry. I also have one year's worth of experience tutoring chemistry to undergraduate students. Additionally, I worked in an academic chemistry lab for two years.

MATLAB

I have used MATLAB for academic physics research purposes for about four years. More specifically, I have experience with the basic programming skills (arithmetic, for/while loops, if statements, etc.) as well as other topics such as vector and matrix algebra, curve fitting, data and image processing and numerical analysis. In addition to using it myself, I have also taught other students how to use it in person and with a written tutorial I have been working on. I focus on hands on experience to build the programming skills to be successful with MATLAB.

Physics

I majored in physics in college and graduated with honors. I also successfully completed one year of physics graduate school. Additionally, I have tutored high school and undergraduate students in physics for the past four years.
