About Jake


Bio

I'm Jake! I have a passion for doing and teaching all areas of mathematics from Pre-Algebra to Calculus. I graduated from Paradise Valley Community College with Highest Distinction and a 4.0 GPA taking classes such as Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I have about two years of tutoring experience working with struggling high school students one-on-one in an after-school program.

I'm Jake! I have a passion for doing and teaching all areas of mathematics from Pre-Algebra to Calculus. I graduated from Paradise Valley Community College with Highest Distinction and a 4.0 GPA taking classes such as Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I have about two years of tutoring experience working with struggling high school students one-on-one in an after-school program. I especially loved helping those struggling in Algebra 1 and 2 but I tutored in everything from Pre-Algebra to Pre-calculus. I was also employed by Arizona Family Karate Academy as a karate instructor for children and adults of all ages for 2 years, where I learned how to prepare classes, explain concepts clearly and concisely, and engage my students. Also, I recently passed the courses that most students are taking, so I know the current methods teachers use to teach their students. I even speak Spanish fluently for those that speak Spanish as their first language.

I love tutoring students and helping them succeed in their math classes. To start, I generally try to introduce the topic in a fun way and explain it thoroughly and clearly. For me, it is super important that students understand the reasons behind what they are doing instead of just memorizing a step-by-step process. Students that understand the processes find their classes more enjoyable and are able to adapt to different types of problems, learn new concepts more quickly, and ultimately succeed in their academic pursuits. Math is learned by doing mathematics, so I make sure to do a lot of problems with the students to ensure they understand the concept. Everyone learns a little differently, so I do my best to adapt to best help each individual.

I got a 36 on the ACT and 800 on the SAT math level 2 subject test. I graduated with Associates Degrees in Science and Arts from Paradise Valley Community College with Highest Distinction and a 4.0 GPA taking classes such as Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra.

Practical & fun tutor

Jake is a great tutor & has a knack for making sense of intimidating formulas. My daughter was very uncomfortable with the idea of online tutoring, but Jake held the conversation, asked the right questions & added in insightful humor to help make the session fun & useful. Highly recommend him!

Great tutor!!! College Algebra

My son is an art student - math is not his thing. Jake has patiently worked through this class with him. He is responsive - worked hard to find times to work with us and his hourly rate is reasonable. I highly recommend!

Came through on late notice!

Jake helped my son on very late notice and was able to successfully help him through a midterm. Jake was very responsive and easy to work with. Jake helped my son work through the problems and he left the lesson enlightened!!

Algebra

We talked about and solved problems relating to composite functions, graphs of piece-wise functions, graphs of perpendicular lines, and word problems with percentages. We also discussed methods of factoring.
