About Jacob

My name is Jacob and I have more than four years of tutoring experience. I graduated with distinction from Duke University with a bachelors of science in chemistry, as well as a masters of biomedical science. I have tutored math up to college-level calculus, as well as chemistry. I have taken all the sciences at a collegiate level, including chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physiology, anatomy, physics, biochemistry, and biostatistics.

I currently coach cross-country at Campo Verde High School. I know how to take students where they are at and work to help them improve and find success on their own. I encourage effective study habits and goal setting. I practice patience and always bring an infectious enthusiasm when I teach. I strive to break down complex problems into simple, easy-to-understand steps. My goal is to leave the student feeling confident and capable of tackling the most challenging problems.

I have the ability to break down math problems into simple steps. I guide students through each problem and ask questions along the way to ensure understanding.

My primary background is in the sciences and I bring an unmatched passion when I teach. I find ways to make science fun and relevant. I aim to make science easy to understand and give students strategies to solve any problem set before them.

If you are ready to have fun learning and to see improvement in your grades, do not hesitate to contact me.

Excellent Experience!

This was our first session, and we are very pleased! Our son feels much better about Algebra 2. Jacob took his time and got our son through the rough spots. We are looking forward to future sessions.
