About Jacob

Hello All,

My name is Jacob and I am one of the few out there who enjoys Mathematics and Statistics of any kind. I have earned my Bachelors in Mathematics and Statistics, and currently I am pursuing a Masters in Statistics at CSU East Bay. I readily take on the challenge of sharing the enjoyment there is to be had in Mathematics to my students as well as my friends (especially the ones who don't think math is interesting or doable).

I like to tutor by teaching the meaning of the equation, not just, "Here's how to do it so do it." In other words, I will show the student not only what to do, but why and how to do it. I'm here to prove that math is not a magical mystery, and to show that there is a reasonable explanation behind all math procedures. This in turn will broaden the understanding of the student.

I look forward to assisting in the growth of anyone I can while showing them the bright world of Mathematics.

Math Rocks!

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.

Chess

From a very young age I have played chess. I know the basic movements, names, and placements of all the pieces.

General Computer

I am a young person who knows how to use a computer well. I know how to use Microsoft word, email, and any online site. If you need general knowledge about using the computer or internet I can help.

General Music

I have played an instrument since I was 8 years old. I can read and teach general music reading in treble clef and bass clef. I know the what the markings on sheet music mean, as well as, all of the note names. I can teach the order of sharps and flats also.

Tennis

I have a passion for playing/ teaching tennis. I have played tennis for 4 years, two of them on high school varsity, and I am still going strong. If you are beginning or intermediate, I can assist you in developing your game.

Trumpet

I know the trumpet inside and out. I have played the trumpet since 5th grade. I have played in the school concert band, as well as, outside experiences, such as the bi-county honor band, youth symphony and now I play with the college orchestra. I have had many years of enjoyment playing an instrument and would like to share my enjoyment with others through this wonderful instrument.

Great tutor! — I met with Jacob to go over things I needed to know for one of my math tests. We went over how to find the minimum and maximum of an equation and how to graph it. We also went over how to find the average, exact, and marginal cost when given an equation. Overall, Jacob did a very good job at making sure that I understood what I was doing and gave me the confidence I needed. I highly recommend him ...
