About Jason


Bio

Hello! My name is Jason, I'm a senior in mechanical engineering at Stanford University.

As a tutor, I want to help you worry less about the topics that are giving you trouble. I will do everything I can to help you excel - with less stress!

Fundamentally, I believe building your understanding of the material is the best way to both build your confidence (and therefore stress less!), and allow you to excel.

"Improving understanding" might sound really obvious as an approach, but the truth...

Hello! My name is Jason, I'm a senior in mechanical engineering at Stanford University.

As a tutor, I want to help you worry less about the topics that are giving you trouble. I will do everything I can to help you excel - with less stress!

Fundamentally, I believe building your understanding of the material is the best way to both build your confidence (and therefore stress less!), and allow you to excel.

"Improving understanding" might sound really obvious as an approach, but the truth is that some tutors won't actually bother to try and find the underlying gaps in your understanding - they'll just offer tips and tricks ("hacks") for some problems, and let you flounder for the rest. I know this firsthand - I've had tutors like this myself!

However, as a tutor, my approach is to help build as solid a foundation as possible, with whatever time we have available. I think fractions are a good example here: many students never develop a good understanding of fractions in 4th or 5th grade. This one topic can often dog students for years! My students and I will often go back and revisit fractions when tutoring Algebra, or even the SAT/ACT Math section - I've seen this kind of extra practice in old topics help enormously with math comprehension!

In sum, these kinds of gaps can make material feel really unfair. They can even make a topic feel impossible. This is the value I try to provide in my tutoring: working together, we can find and plug these gaps to even the playing field, and give you a fair shot at acing your topic.

I promise to work hard to share my understanding with you. Reach out today to get started!

Macintosh

I use my Macintosh laptop for all of my daily coursework and activities. I also use all of macOS's organizational tools, including Calendar, Mail, Reminders, and Notes.
MATLAB

MATLAB

I have done everything from plotting/data analysis, to simulating suspension geometries, to computational design of a rocket engine in MATLAB. I have also made substantial use of MATLAB for analyzing/controlling linear dynamical systems. Whatever your application, I can probably help!
