Bio

I'm Jacob! I graduated from Harding University with a B.S. in Chemistry and a heavy emphasis in medical biology and math in the Spring of 2017. I also have several years experience working in both a children's and youth ministry as an intern, so I have experience working with elementary through high school age groups.

I'm Jacob! I graduated from Harding University with a B.S. in Chemistry and a heavy emphasis in medical biology and math in the Spring of 2017. I also have several years experience working in both a children's and youth ministry as an intern, so I have experience working with elementary through high school age groups. I genuinely think that chemistry is one of the most interesting subjects in the world, and I look forward to spreading the concepts with those around me. I believe that the biggest problem with students in chemistry is a lack of pertinence in the subject. Students are naturally drawn to that which interests them, and, unfortunately, most of an introductory chemistry class is just laying foundation for more interesting concepts later. One of the ways I address this problem is by showing relevant uses of the concepts being covered.
My primary method of tutoring involves using a third party media platform on the subject followed by a conversation over the concept and demonstration of understanding through practice problems. I have found using this method not only helps students to learn the concepts being discussed, but also helps them think about surrounding subjects and leads to a more connected, more thorough, and deeper understanding of relevant material. Of course, if this method does not seem effective I am willing to try different methods until one that matches the student is found. Any resources the parent or student supplies can be incorporated. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

I have tutored college students through their statistics course, as well as having taken Calculus I and II and Differential Equations based Physical Chemistry. This recent coursework means that I am brushed up on the concepts of these math courses and am better prepared to help teach the information.

As a recent graduate with a B.S. in chemistry, I am familiar with all of the concepts taught in a general chemistry or an organic chemistry course and know several of the pitfall
