About Jason


Bio

A friend once commented to me that my success as a tutor is due to the fact that I am, "a Renaissance man in the age of specialization." In other words, I can tutor most subjects K-12, I speak French and Portuguese fluently and have an intermediate Spanish level, and I am highly experienced with SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL prep, among many other standardized tests. My students have told me that I'm, "funny, smart, and cool," but more importantly, I have many years of experience...

A friend once commented to me that my success as a tutor is due to the fact that I am, "a Renaissance man in the age of specialization." In other words, I can tutor most subjects K-12, I speak French and Portuguese fluently and have an intermediate Spanish level, and I am highly experienced with SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and TOEFL prep, among many other standardized tests. My students have told me that I'm, "funny, smart, and cool," but more importantly, I have many years of experience helping students gain confidence and achieve greater academic success, while helping improve necessary life skills such as better organization, time management, and communication.

I have a background as a social worker and counselor and, as such, I have an empathetic and genuine approach to building relationships with my students that promotes change and success. I love my job as a tutor because I'm given the opportunity to connect with different people and have seen so many of my students strengthen needed skills for both school and life. I also love standardized test prep!

I have been told I have a gift for explaining math. My technique is to identify weaknesses, explain the necessary concepts, and create or find some extra problems to strengthen needed skills. Also, identifying where many students go wrong while solving problems has proven super helpful for my students.

I have a Bachelor's degree in biology and love understanding how organisms function. A lot of bio is about memorization, so helping students find ways to memorize needed information for tests and quizzes is often the focus of our work.

I lived in Belgium as an exchange student and have been fluent in French and either tutoring or teaching it for many years. Most basic students struggle with pronunciation and the more you study French, the harder the grammar gets! But you can do it!

I love SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT prep! I love words, and talking about the vocabulary is the best way to understand it. We use Quizlet, and I often write sentences that help students understand the meaning and usage of the vocab. For reading comprehension, where they also sneak in vocab, having strategies to identify where in the text the answer is found is usually the most helpful.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor who really listens to you

I've asked Jason to help me pass the CBEST exam and especially the math section. Jason listened to my concerns and has presented me with more than just tips to pass the test. I now have problems to practice to help me really understand the math and I can't wait to keep learning more and more until I am confident I can pass the CBEST.

Engaged and mindful of our time!

In my first session, Mr. H. helped me feel comfortable about reaching out for help. I was skeptical about the value of a tutor at this late point in my education. He was engaged every minute of our session, he asked questions to spark my dormant critical thinking skills and I felt comfortable sharing my ideas with him. I immediately bonded with him because he is confident, professional, and enthusiastic about helping others achieve their own best work. With a mentor/tutor like Mr. H. and the loving support of my family, I know I can reach my goal of completing my graduate program. I highly recommend him!
