Hello! I am a former High School Science & Math Teacher with experience teaching in most Science/Math subjects with 5+ years in education/tutoring. In addition to teaching high school, I have also tutored college students in advanced subjects, such as Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Genetics.

I understand that these topics can be especially difficult for some students, especially if it's not a subject you're passionate about which is why I try to make learning engaging and fun! I also enjoy preparing students for standardized tests with personalized test taking strategies. Students I've prepared for the SAT over the summer have regularly seen improvements of 100+ points on the the math section.

For anything more than a specific topic question, regular tutoring sessions are the best way to ensure academic success. Most students I work with regularly see a letter grade improvement are 100+ points on their SAT. If you're interested in seeing similar results or using your study time as effectively as possible, I would encourage you to set up a regular session schedule 1-2 times a week.

Knowledgeable & efficient

Jacob taught me concepts important for my genetics class. He gave me important resources that improved my knowledge. Jacob goes the extra step to ensure students understand the information professors cover.

Alex, 4 lessons with Jacob

Good initial session

My son was pleased with the assistance Jacob provided in their first session and will schedule more in the future. Jacob possesses a thorough knowledge of chemistry and was able to effectively communicate it to my son.

Robert, 3 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgeable

Very helpful on my lab report, I was quite confused and he cleared everything up. He also was very clear and timely, it didn’t take any longer than needed. Overall a good experience.

Lindsey, 1 lesson with Jacob

Awesome help!

He helped me learn a lot of concepts over two hours and was very knowledgeable in all the concepts. Very patient and even went further into depth with extra problems.

Taveya, 2 lessons with Jacob

Very knowledgeable

My son needed help with Biology Punnett Squares, but Jacob realized it really was lack of understanding on some of the microbiology basics. My son got a lot out of the session.
