My name is Jacob and I am one of the few out there who enjoys Mathematics and Statistics of any kind. I am a full time Financial Analyst looking to tutor on the weekends. I have earned my Masters in Statistics and Bachelors in Math and Statistics. I have taught math and have been tutoring on and off for the past 6 years including college and high school level tutoring centers. I readily take on the challenge of sharing the enjoyment there is to be had in Mathematics at any level to my students as well as my friends (especially the ones who don't think math is interesting or doable).
I like to tutor by teaching the meaning of the equation, not just, "Here's how to do it so do it." In other words, I will show your student not only what to do, but why and how to do it. I'm here to prove that math is not a magical mystery and to show that there is a reasonable explanation behind all math procedures. This, in turn, will broaden the understanding of your student.
I look forward to assisting in the growth of anyone I can while showing them the bright world of Mathematics.
I met with Jacob to go over things I needed to know for one of my math tests. We went over how to find the minimum and maximum of an equation and how to graph it. We also went over how to find the average, exact, and marginal cost when given an equation. Overall, Jacob did a very good job at making sure that I understood what I was doing and gave me the confidence I needed. I highly recommend him and am planning to hire him in the future!Katelyn, 3 lessons with Jacob
Jacob helped my daughter with common core math. He was punctual, respectful, and a pleasure to have. I would recommend him to anyone needing math help. We will continue using Jacob for our daughter's math needs.Karl, 12 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgeable, great interpersonal skills, flexible
My son has always enjoyed the math classes with Jacob so he has already started covering other topics as well. Great results.Carlo, 18 lessons with Jacob
Tutor time with Jacob is never a waste of time. He helps me really understand the material. Statistics is very challenging and hard for me to decipher but he finds ways and simple examples and explanations for me to understand it. I highly recommend Jacob and will use him again in the future!Verbena, 6 lessons with Jacob
Excellent tutor for teens who think they don't like math.
We did not want our teen to forget everything he learned in math over the summer break so we decided to enlist the help of Jacob to keep his skills current and brush up on the subjects he needs some help with. Jacob is professional and teaches in a way that makes math fully understandable. He seems quite competent in mathematics and always shows up for his appointments on time. Our kid said that one hour with Jacob feels more like 10 minutes. He has never said that about a math class before.Aram, 38 lessons with Jacob
Jacob was on time, professional, and he challenged me. He helped me refresh my math. I will continue to work with him.Donna, 1 lesson with Jacob
He really gets teenage boys!
Jacob is a perfect fit for my teenage son. They have a lot in common and my son really enjoys the peer experience. Jacob works with my son to make learning Geometry fun and less arcane. He puts the purpose behind the math facts instead of just spoon feeding rules. Maybe more of us would have liked math if we knew why and how we could use it in real life!Pepper, 8 lessons with Jacob
Great teaching technique!
Jacob has a fantastic way of teaching. He was very patient and used a variety of teaching methods during the session.Kathy, 2 lessons with Jacob
