About Jason

I am from Lakewood, California originally. I have been tutoring for about three years now and have done all age levels including middle school to college. I have worked with gifted students, as well as those who have IEPs and am comfortable with students of all levels.

I was in the Merit Scholars program in my high school and the Honors College at CSULA. I am currently obtaining my single subject credential at CSULA and will be also starting my masters program in English Literature in the near future. I am extremely motivated and very much enjoy working with students in writing, literature and grammar.

My style of teaching is an adaptive one, I do not generally come in with a rigid structure but instead a few varying course paths which focuses on the weaknesses the student has in the field. For example, if a student has problem reading and understanding what is happening in the reading we will work on contextual analysis and understanding the reading, as opposed to a student who completely understands the text and wants to focus on more complex ideas. I have done it all from teaching young children how to write a basic essay, reading plays and teaching children how to recite lines, as well as doing higher level college essays with many of my college clients. I am happy and willing to do anything to ensure that my students succeed in their studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I have been tutoring the ACT English section for many years. I have a bachelors degree in English literature and soon to start a Masters Program.

I can bring my own materials or we can use his own library (schoolwork and books and such).
