About Jacob

Hello everyone,

I am an English and history tutor with experience at both the high school and college levels, and I'm new to this WyzAnt site. I work hard to keep a creative, fun approach to teaching people new things. I find the hardest part about tutoring is getting people to realize how smart they already are. Please contact me because I look forward to working together!

My qualifications include three years as an English tutor, six years' experience as a reporter in Santa Cruz, and a background in working with people who have disabilities, including autism and dyslexia. I also have one year of experience as a one-on-one English teacher. I am also available to help edit college application essays.

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.

Reading

As someone who once struggled with learning disabilities in school myself, I know it's important for any young reader to both push themselves and be patient. It's a tutor's job to foster that balance.
