About Jacob

I love helping others learn the joy of learning. I am a dedicated tutor seeking to help others succeed in academics and the college application process. Spending the last eight years in the academy has given me unique perspectives on what students need to succeed. After graduating salutatorian of my high school, I graduated Belmont University (BA) and Duke University (MDiv). I am currently studying at Yale University (STM). At all three of these schools, I received very generous scholarship offers (including full-scholarships). Furthermore, I have presented at four academic conferences, including one at the University of Oxford. I would love to help accomplish this and more. I help students succeed.

As I tutor, I strive to help students grasp the power of learning. I witnessed the transformative power of tutoring during sessions in both Nashville, TN and Durham, NC as I studied for my degrees. I have tutored in both economically-distressed neighborhoods and elite magnet schools. At both of these places, the students needed motivation and personalized attention in learning. It was an utter joy to witness the success and growth in each of my students.

I am pleased to offer my skills to all grades and subjects through high school. I am especially prepared to teach reading and writing skills-- perhaps the single most important skill for colleges and careers. I am also prepared to tutor for the SAT/ACT and GRE skills. Please send me an email to see how I might help you or your student succeed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I am well-versed in the college application process. Having attained full scholarships and stipends at Duke and Yale, I am skilled in knowing how to write application essays and apply to a variety of schools.

I first help students identify strengths that institutions value. Furthermore, I help students craft and edit application materials and navigate the labyrinth of offers.

Greek

I took six semesters of Koine Greek in college. I am able to help students learn and appreciate the intricacies of the language.

Religion

I majored in religious studies at college before attending Duke Divinity and Yale Divinity. I am currently pursuing a career to teach religion.

I can help students understand the intricacies and meaningfulness of religion in a modern society.
