Bio

Hello, my name is Jacob. I've been a math tutor for over twenty years and I love what I do. I've also been a college math professor for the last ten years, and in that time I've taught every course from fundamentals of math (what is a fraction) through differential equations, specializing in statistics. Over the course of my career, I've learned a lot about how different students learn, and I've developed techniques for making mathematics relatable and accessible to all kinds of people. I've...

Hello, my name is Jacob. I've been a math tutor for over twenty years and I love what I do. I've also been a college math professor for the last ten years, and in that time I've taught every course from fundamentals of math (what is a fraction) through differential equations, specializing in statistics. Over the course of my career, I've learned a lot about how different students learn, and I've developed techniques for making mathematics relatable and accessible to all kinds of people. I've come to be able to place each topic and subject into a larger framework and try to show students a little of the big picture, while at the same time being specific about the best way to think about individual problems. And in fifteen years of tutoring, I've seen a wide variety of problems. I look forward to working with you.

Statistics

Statistics

Statistics is one of my specialties, I teach it currently at West Coast University in Anaheim, and have been teaching this subject for almost 4 years.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

A great foundation for formal reasoning, I enjoy teaching this subject. Algebra doesn't have to be scary, and it can make everything else you do in school easier by teaching you mental organization.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I've taught algebra 2 at the high school level, as well as several equivalent courses at the college level. Most recently I taught the equivalent college course on the Coast Guard base in San Pedro.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is my specialty. I've taught it at the college level for four years now, and I keep finding new ways to understand it and explain it to students. To me, it's probably the most elegant of all of the math classes most students take.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects to teach, and it's extremely important as a foundation for further mathematical learning.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is a fun class to teach for me, because the examples are constructed a little more creatively than the examples in higher level classes usually are. I suppose this is because textbook writers think that younger students need that to keep them interested. I think older students would benefit from it as well, but in any case, I do like to have a chance to teach this class. I've tutored this material hundreds of times over the last 15 years.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I've taught precalculus both in high school and at the university level. Having taught calculus a great deal as well, I have a very good sense of what's most important to master in precalculus in order to succeed in future courses.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear algebra deals broadly with solving and manipulating linear systems. Most often, these are dealt with using the tool of matrices, so students need to learn how to work with matrices. Concepts like rank, nullity, vector spaces, subspaces, basis, dimension and independence are all important for students. It is also often the first course students need to take that builds the theory up from axioms through proving theorems, so a thorough grasp of formal logic is vital in this course. I've taken three or four classes in the subject and I've tutored it many times.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a subject I've taught at both the high school and college levels, and is a fun one to write examples for. The topics in trigonometry lend themselves to applications well.

College/Statistics

Mr. Jacob E. is very patient, it really helps if you have anxiety towards math-such as myself. He knows this subject well and explains it in a simple, professional manner. I would recommend his help.
