I have a Masters degree in Mathematics and am teaching undergraduate math courses (Precalculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, etc.) as an Adjunct Professor for my fourth consecutive semester. As an undergrad I spent 3 years tutoring peer students on behalf of the university and more recently I was hired as a tutor by Harvard Crimson Testing, Varsity Tutors, Kaplan Test Prep, and Princeton Review, although I turned down some of the offers to continue to work independently. Calculus is my favorite, and what I believe to be my most effective, course to tutor.

Students I have worked with have:
-Been accepted into ivy league colleges and top private high schools
-Scored an 800 on the Math Section of the SAT and an 800 on the Math SAT II Subject Test
-Excelled in Honors and AP Math courses and always passed their AP Statistics and AB or BC Calculus Exams
-Received an A in a variety of math courses
-Always saw rapid and substantial improvement in their math ability
-Gained more confidence and enjoyed math more

I find the best method is having the student attempt the math problems on their own rather than just watch the problems being solved as they might in a classroom. This will force the student to know each step and allow me to identify where the student gets stuck. It can be extremely helpful to work through practice review questions or previous exam questions and identify each problem into a category or type. Learning how to look at a problem and immediately know what "type" of problem it is and how to solve that "type" will give the student more confidence when working on their own and prevent panicking that can occur during an in-class exam.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, including issues with location and price.

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.

Differential Equations

I believe I am qualified to tutor differential equations because as an undergraduate math major at the University of Maryland I completed MATH246, which was a rigorous course for math and engineering majors in Differential Equations. In addition, as a graduate student working towards my Master's in Mathematics, I am currently finishing up a year long-sequence in Partial Differential Equations, which is a rigorous specific topic within Differential Equations and builds upon all of the material from Differential Equations. I already received an A in the first half of this graduate course.

Excellent Precalculus tutor, very patient and understanding — Jason is not only knowledgeable, he is detailed in his review after each session. He is also very understanding that our son is under a lot of stress because of the high homework load and helps our son study and review for the math test. He is also very considerate and sent a reminder to our son to work the problems slowly so as not to make silly mistakes. He really helps our son regain the confi ...
