About Jahi

I have provided expert level individualized math tutoring for over 25 years. I have worked with students who have weak math skills and are currently struggling to keep up, students who are doing well and want to do advanced work, as well as students who fall somewhere in between. I have tutored in all junior high and high school math subject areas. I am comfortable with and have ample experience tutoring students of all ages. I help students to thoroughly understand math so they can do A+ work. I believe that anybody who puts in the effort can succeed in math. So a large part of my task is to help instill an "I can do it' attitude so that the student will put in the needed effort. I have a B.S. Degree in Mathematical Sciences from Stanford University and work as an independent software consultant. I look forward to working together with you.

Additional Note: Summer is an ideal time to review topics that have not been completely mastered, go in depth on topics that were cursorily covered, and explore supplementary topics that will enhance general mathematical problem solving skills.

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.

C#

I have worked as a senior software engineer for over 20 years. For the last 10 years I have utilized C# and Java as my primary programming languages. I have developed software for medical devices, military systems, network management systems, and enterprise infrastructure for the insurance industry. I have also been tutoring Java and C# for the last five years.

My son has struggled throughout the years in public schools. He was diagnosed with ADD and received "special" instruction and classes which actually amounted to "passing him along." When it came time for him to test for the ASVAB test to join the military he just couldn't pass. This is when we found Jahi. My son would come home and tell me, "he gets me mom. He totally understands that my brain
