About Jake

I am a student of philosophy. My baccalaureate is in philosophy and psychology. I have pursued additional studies in mathematics, religion, world languages, and English literature. My graduate level work focused on cognition and learning, with interest in leadership.

I am a trained learner with superior communication skills. Currently, I work in the Gateway Community College Writing Center, substitute teach, and coach high school track and field. I have lead lessons in a variety of professional and academic settings. I have made it my business to study my teachers and mentors, and intend to begin a graduate program in English Literature.

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.

Elementary Math

I enjoy mathematics. As an undergraduate, I attended several academic mathematics conferences across New England. I practice when I can organize time enough to further my knowledge in the various areas of the mathematics, including logic.

Logic

Being an undergraduate student of philosophy, I was educated with a foundation in logic, e.g., truth table, (bi)conditionals, etc. The program at Connecticut State University, Southern in New Haven, required an introductory course in logic, as-well-as upper level courses focused on and including logic (e.g. progpositional logic) and relevant material (language and critical thinking), which I participated in. I finalized my B.A. in Philosophy in 2013.

Reading

I am a proficient critical reader, with excellent attention for detail, and superior communication skills.
