About Jay

(The following description is geared as if you, the reader, are the student.)

I love to be at the door of your learning and to welcome you into that new world. I have been tutoring for a long time (20+ years) and enjoy working with each new student. In the Washington, D.C. area, I tutored many students from many backgrounds and cultures. And, of course, I've tutored friends and neighbors, especially in test prep and mathematics. I have my name in famous test preparation books as a contributor of new, fun ideas.

Sometimes, all you need is to build confidence -- develop an "can do" attitude. And sometimes, it turns out that you missed one or two little things along the way. Then again, you may have, for example, moved that month or didn't click with a teacher. In life, stuff happens. We'll find any stumbling blocks and we'll go back and conquer them so that your journey continues onward and upward! ("to infinity and beyond"?) Keep in mind though, that I will always remember you are a thinking feeling individual, It is always my honor to help someone. To me, that is what my life is about.

I pride myself in putting a learner at ease. Once you are at ease and I understand your way of learning best and your interests in life, then and only then can I tailor the learning around you. I am also effective at bringing to play decades of solid methods -- what works!

I have been honored to be chosen teacher of the year at my school and teacher of the quarter for a nationwide system of schools. I have written a curriculum for a college course. I have mentored, and supervised teachers. In tutoring for a famous test-prep company, I was titled a master tutor. As a teacher my last assignment was as a Master Teacher and Chair of the Mathematics Department.

I have master's level training in mathematics and in teaching students who speak a native language other than English. I am also a member of MENSA, the high IQ organization.

I bring much dedication and experience to helping you. I see each person as having unique gifts to share with the world. My style is warm, encouraging, honest, considerate -- it sparkles!

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.

ACT Math

Besides having taught this in one-on-one situations, I also taught two classes at a nursing college for those students seeking admission. Some of the main concepts to learn, besides math ones, are the tricks and tips of taking a standardized test and especially as they specifically apply to the ACT Math.

Music Theory

I have studied music theory at Towson State University.

SAT Math

My greatest experience in teaching SAT Math was in Washington, D.C. where I tutored individuals as a MASTER TUTOR and coordinated private/public joint ventures with inner city high schools to train and oversee the H.S. teachers teaching SAT prep.
