About Jason

I have enjoyed teaching for many years. There is sense of fulfillment when the child understands the material. When working with students, you must create different methods and approaches to achieve success. Differentiation is key. Every student is not the same. You must decide what way is best to teach the student. I believe that my experience with differentiation and various curriculums such as common core provide me with the skills to best tutor a child.

Teaching is truly the joy of my life. I enjoy seeing students discover their gifts, and then watching them develop them. My philosophy of teaching is one of interaction rather than lecture. Students learn more effectively when they are partners in the learning experience. Reading comprehension and writing skills are both areas where students must feel a sense of ownership in learning. Also, technology has provided a unique platform for helping students feel empowered, and they are better able to take an active role. Teaching has evolved over the past thirty years from a passive experience on the part of the student to an active one. I am happy to be a teacher during a progressive age. All subjects can be made interesting, and I feel I have a knack for making the "boring" material come alive with relevance and excitement.

I graduated from the University of Scranton in 2002 and began teaching in high need schools in New York City. I have taught 5th grade to 11th. My family and I relocated to Augusta area last August and began working with the Richmond County Board of Education.
