About Jake


Bio

I have been tutoring and teaching for over 16 years, most of which consisted of 6-12 graders. In that time, my students were given the tools to become independent learners and better at time-management and organizational skills. A great majority of my students improved two or more grade points after just a few months of working with me.

I have been tutoring and teaching for over 16 years, most of which consisted of 6-12 graders. In that time, my students were given the tools to become independent learners and better at time-management and organizational skills. A great majority of my students improved two or more grade points after just a few months of working with me.

I have taught and tutored public and private school students, and have had great rapport with each and every student I tutored. We went beyond just being taught a specific point, and focused on the methodology of becoming an autonomous student, with skill sets that would empower each learner to apply simple patterns in achieving a balanced approach to acquiring and retaining concepts.

Being that I was a licensed secondary education teacher with emphasis in Business Education, I spent many years teaching/tutoring all math grade levels with the DOE in Hawaii and Colorado. My students achieved higher grades in class and performed well in standardized tests.

I taught ESL to high school and college students in Japan, and upon my return, I worked extensively within the Honolulu school districts, where I taught English and tutored in French and Japanese. I hold a foreign language certification that is equivalent to a masters degree, in Japan. I love to learn different languages and in the process of learning those, it allowed me to have a renewed sense of the challenges therein and overcoming them.

Although my licensure covers grades 7-12, I have extensive teaching at the elementary level as well. I worked with K-12 schools in both Hawaii and Colorado.
