I am an Ivy League Grad / J.D. who provides expert personal tutoring.
My name is Jacob K., and I am a 32 year old solo practitioner attorney based out of Tewksbury NJ. Even though I own my own firm and provide legal services to clients, I also enjoy teaching and have found tutoring and helping students of all ages to be extremely rewarding.
I scored above 700 (on a scale of 800) on both the SAT I and SAT II Math IC.
I studied advanced fractal geometry with the mathematician that founded the discipline of fractal geometry, Professor Mandelbrot.
I am a highly skilled teacher that cares about his students' success.
I passed the California Bar exam on the first try in 2007.
I am a licensed California attorney.
I am advanced in mathematics, having scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT Math tests (I and IIC). I also scored a 5 on the AP test and took several advanced math courses at Yale. We will make math simple as a snap for your son or daughter.
But that's not what's the most important. Because no matter how smart one is, an effective tutor must be able to teach and to actually effectively convey the information to your child. I use a lot of enthusiasm and repetition when I am tutoring and I emphasize the key points in an effective way. I have tutored children anywhere from the age 6 all the way to college graduates getting ready to take the LSAT. I have consistently helped students achieve results.
My mantra is that learning is awesome! We need to think of learning as truly an opportunity. In some countries, school is not a given like it is here in the States. I like to keep that in perspective and stay grounded in the idea that learning should be a positive experience. "A positive attitude leads to success." That's what I tell my students.
I am a graduate of Notre Dame Law School and served as Executive Articles Editor of Notre Dame's Journal of Legislation (JLEG). I completed Notre Dame's Advanced Legal Research class in my second year of law school and scored a grade of A or B in all of my classes for my entire law school career (mostly As). I graduated from law school cum laude and in the top quarter of my class and then passed the three day long California State Bar exam on my first try. The California bar is considered to be the most difficult, along with New York.
I scored 730 on SAT Verbal and scored 770 on SAT Writing. I am a graduate of Yale University and Notre Dame Law School. At these schools, I honed my writing skills. Finally, I am a practicing attorney with excellent writing skills due to the amount of writing one is required to do as an associate attorney at big law firms such as Sheppard Mullin and Jones Day.
I have built multiple websites using word press and I am a developer with elegant themes.com and am skilled and knowledgeable in all of elegant themes.com WordPress templates.
