About Jason

I have over 5 years of tutoring experience. This includes tutoring 1st to 5th graders in math, science, writing and reading skills. Additionally, I have served as a tutor for a charter program in the San Juan School District, helping students in Pre-Algebra and Algebra along with science. Through tutoring students, I also help teach them organizational and study skills that enable them to be more successful in school. I often use the most innovating teaching techniques for tutoring students and use a very interactive approach that involves the students themselves in the learning process.

Additionally, I have served as a teaching assistant for various classes at UC Davis, where I have used similar approaches to those mentioned above in tutoring students. Students often enjoy working with me and feel more confident about their studies after tutoring sessions with me.

Total game changer — I sought a tutor help about half way through my semester. I was a little unsure at first because I figured my Astronomy grade was far past recoverable. I've always had a huge issue with math related subjects so doing both Astronomy and a Stats class was a bit daunting. Jason made me feel very at ease and helped break down the Astronomy concepts into something I could wrap my head around. Each less ...
