I have a life long dedication to teaching and tutoring. Additionally, I have always had a passion for mathematics and the physical sciences. They fascinate and inspire me. Over the past nine years I have been combining my love for math and science with my dedication to teaching and lifelong learning. My approach to tutoring is holistic - every aspect of a student's life affects their performance in school. As such, I take it upon myself to provide as much support in all areas of a student's life in addition to the subject tutoring and/or test prep services I provide. K-12 and secondary education can be extremely stressful for students as well as their families. It is essential that students and their families have a good support team to help get them through all the challenges that are associated with grade school and secondary education. I want to be a part of the team that helps you (or your student) achieve their goals.
I am a firm believer that each student deserves individualized attention in order to help them succeed and realize their full academic potential. Patience and perseverance are invaluable traits in a good tutor, and I pride myself on having never given up on a student. Good communications skills and a willingness to adopt different teaching styles according to each specific student's learning style are also essential qualities. With each of my students, I see myself more as a mentor than as just an academic tutor.
A little bit more about me:
-I have experience in a wide variety of subjects including Math, Science, History, English, and SAT/ACT Test Prep.
-I graduated from UCLA in the Summer of 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Computational and Systems Biology with a Mathematics minor.
-I enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle and spend as much time as possible outdoors hiking, camping, and playing sports.
-I have a predominantly kinesthetic learning style and prefer working with my hands whenever possible.
*** Lesson Details ***
My subject (math, science, etc) tutoring sessions typically consist of reviewing any lessons learned in the previous week, helping with homework assignments, and previewing material that has not yet been covered in class. Standardized test prep (SAT, ACT, etc.) sessions generally consist of learning various test taking techniques and working on practice problems. Lesson content will always be customized and catered toward individual students' needs. Each student has different learning styles and needs and I firmly believe that a great tutor will always remain attuned to this fact.
The absolute best!!
As a home-schooled student, it's extremely important that my tutor know the material I'm working on like the back of their hand since I'm essentially teaching everything to myself. Jordan not only knows the material, but he can break it down in a way that makes it seem easy and fun! I have straight A's in my Calculus and Physics classes, and although he'd never take any of the credit for himself, I know I wouldn't be nearly as successful without him. He's patient, knowledgeable, has great communication skills, and above all else, truly cares about each of his student's success. He always goes above and beyond what's asked of him. You seriously won't find a better tutor.Lily, 23 lessons with Jordan

Great AP Physics tutor
Jordan is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. My son was having a few issues with his AP Physics class, but after a few sessions with Jordan he had a better grasp of the subject going into his final exam. Jordan was easy going and able to explain the subject matter well. I highly recommend Jordan, and will definitely be using him if my son needs help in the future.Blanca, 4 lessons with Jordan
Best Math Tutor In The Business!
After working with 2 other very capable tutors on Algebra 2, my son was still struggling and very upset… then we connected with Jordan. In less than 60 minutes, not only did my son fully grasp the concepts that he had been struggling with, but also scored a 100% on his test! Let me say that again, a 100% on his chapter test. Watching your child struggle is torture for any parent; however, watching them connect with someone that can empower them with the tools necessary to not only pass, but also thrive is a true gift. Jordan made that happen for my son in literally a matter of minutes; exceptional tutor and person.Jed, 2 lessons with Jordan
Jordan is a very knowledgeable tutor for Chemistry and Math. My son Matthew was overwhelmed with the enormous amount of Chemistry homework he gets from his teacher before we started having Jordan as his tutor. Working with Jordan has definitely improved Matthew's anxiety with doing Chemistry. Not only he understand it better he is trying to be more focus and stay on task on a daily basis so he does not get overwhelm again. Jordan always goes over what Matthew needs to understand before approaching the homework problems during each session, he is patience, and he challenges Matthew to get rid of distractions so he can focus and do better when he studies by himself. Jordan also tutors my son with Algebra 2/Trig, and he is also an excellent math tutor as well. He possess a wonderful and caring attitude which makes him an excellent tutor. We truly appreciate Jordan working with our son.Matthew, 20 lessons with Jordan
Highly recommended ! ! !
Jordan has been tutoring for me for me for over a year now. He has tutored me in Calculus I & II, and is currently tutoring me in College Physics. From the first lesson, Jordan was able to help me gain a better understanding of the subject matter. He is passionate about the subjects he teaches and it shows during his sessions. I’ve always struggled with math and been easily frustrated; Jordan makes sure I understand the concepts along with the methods for problem solving. He is very patient and will review any material until I truly grasp it. Jordan has helped me not only understand the material, but I have come to enjoy it as well ! I highly recommend choosing Jordan as your tutor.Lauren, 23 lessons with Jordan
Very Effective Tutor
It was a pleasure to meet Jordan for the first time, his tutoring style is positive, encouraging, and motivating. I think he and my daughter are going to have a great success working together. He has excellent subject knowledge of both chemistry and algebra 2, and is able to deliver information at a pace that fits my daughter perfectly. I found him to be extremely personable and professional.Bianca, 21 lessons with Jordan
After two previous physics tutors we were so fortunate to find a tutor who really did know AP Physics! We were so fortunate to connect with Jordan through WyzAnt! He has been tutoring my daughter for about the past six weeks. Jordan has his own unique way of explaining the strategy & skills she needs to understand & excel in AP Physics. Her test scores are a testament to Jordan's approach to teaching physics. Jordan has a great personality and is reliable and dependable. I highly recommend Jordan for your tutoring needs!Rachael, 44 lessons with Jordan
Jordan is tutoring me in college level physics. He is very professional. He is able to break down the material and explain it in a less complicated form. Jordan is patient and willing to answer all questions. He is not only able to help with homework, but he is also able to help me prepare for exams. Jordan is flexible and willing to accommodate my schedule and shows up at the time that he says he will. I highly recommend him!Allison, 4 lessons with Jordan
Finally, a great tutor!!
My daughter was having trouble with AP Chemistry and we had problems finding a tutor who actually knew what they were doing. We contacted Jordan who responded back immediately. I was apprehensive about trying another tutor because we didn't have time to waste. I'm so glad we did. Jordan has been so helpful and has a way of explaining things that my daughter understands. We finally found a great tutor.Carrie, 12 lessons with Jordan
