Hello there,

Hello there,

I am an experienced online tutor and former instructor. In my time as a grad student at Florida State University I taught five classes of Principles of Microeconomics and I received the Sobel Academic Achievement Award for PhD Candidates in 2011. Prior to grad school I scored a 800 on the math section of the GRE, a perfect score. My duties also included being a teaching assistant for many other economics classes, a tutor in the computer lab, and a research assistant for the experimental economics lab. I have been tutoring online since 2013 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love the "ah ha" moment that a student gets when an idea clicks in a lesson. Economics has always been an interest of mine and it is great to share my knowledge with others (even if I annoy my friends by talking about it to much.) I specialize in microeconomics and game theory and tutor both up to the PhD level. Other fields I enjoy are environmental econ, experimental econ, public choice, and public finance. Although I still help with macro as well and anything econ related.

Game theory has been a specific interest as I enjoy strategic behavior. This can be seen in private life as I will play any type of game or competition. Whether it be sports (soccer, volleyball, basketball, ultimate,) video games (Fortnite anyone?) or board games, I always love a good challenge. I'm also a big Star Wars fan. I have a diverse taste in music and play the harmonica. Although sometimes it is nice to take a long walk in the woods or go airboating with my father.

I have a somewhat flexible schedule, so if feel free to ask and we might be able to work something out. Notes that are taken during the lesson will be provided afterwards. While I specialize in microeconomics, game theory, and other related fields, I can still help with other economic fields as well as some statistics and finance. Please don't be hesitant to contact me with any questions you might have.

I specialize in microeconomics and tutor it at all levels, AP, principles, intermediate, Master's, MBA, and PhD. Each level as well as each student is different, so I adjust my lesson to meet an individual needs. For a student's first micro class the material can be daunting, but I can make it less so by explaining the graphs and concepts using real world examples, practice problems and tricks to make learning the material easier. For intermediate or MBA, more math is involved yet a student has usually taken a few econ courses and familiar with the basic concepts. I can help with all sections, whether it be consumer theory, theory of the firm or more advanced topics like game theory. For Master's and PhD student's of economics the math is much more intensive. However many student's often have a strong math background and still need help with economic concepts. I am more than fluent in topics like optimization, duality, game theory, etc. No matter the level, micro and game theory are not only my greatest strengths but my favorite field to tutor in economics.

Excellent teacher!

His lecture was very clear and easy to understand. When I didn't understand 100%, he stopped and went back to the explanation again in a different way. Overall, I loved his way to teach! If I get more questions, I will definitely come back and ask him again.

Game theory

He was really good at explaining and actually knew how to help. I previously used Chegg tutors and had no help. Game theory is super specialized so I didn’t really have many resources.

Savannah, 2 lessons with Jesse

Clutch tutor!

Very helpful, thorough, and clear. Was a huge help in understanding macro econ. He broke down each topic for me step by step to make sure I got it. Definitely recommend to anyone in need of help.

Jhordn, 1 lesson with Jesse

Excellent touring

Clear, concise, and broke down concepts into understandable segments. I would use his tutoring services again. He was very clear in helping me with my concerns and was able to explain in a way that anyone could follow and work through each problem while addressing my questions and concerns.

Ryan, 1 lesson with Jesse

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jesse definitely helped simplify "payout tables" and and helped decipher some of the key concepts in an introductory course in Game Theory. As we get deeper into the course I will certainly rely on Jesse for additional help in demystifying this interesting, fun, but at times complex subject.

Nando, 1 lesson with Jesse

Knowledgeable and friendly

Jesse R. helped me study and understand concepts before my final exam. He’s knowledgeable and friendly. Has great suggestions and is patient and willing to work through any bottlenecks I had.

Roland, 1 lesson with Jesse

Jesse is a great tutor

Jesse is excellent with all. I met with him and so did my son. Very good tutor. He was very patient and hot very well. Made both of us feel very comfortable right away. Highly recommend.

Kathryn, 4 lessons with Jesse

He knows his stuff!

This was my first experience with Wyzant and honestly my expectations were "I'm pretty sure he's not going to be able to help me." I am in a master's level MicroEcon class and was doubtful I would get the sufficient level of expertise. OH HAPPY DAY, I was! Jesse was VERY knowledgeable, prepared, and kind. I was very impressed by him and will continue to use him. I would recommend 100%.

Karlie, 5 lessons with Jesse

Great help in understanding complex game theory questions

Jesse was great at explaining and helping me understand important concepts and examples in preparation for exams. If I ever need help in game theory I definitely know who to go to now.
