About Jason

I am a highly adaptive teacher, and I take pleasure in learning students’ weakness to help improve their overall learning skills. While learning is important, I advise students that success is not only achieved in the classroom but in life as well.

My tutoring specialties, at this point, mostly include such math areas as Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Calculus, SAT Math and ACT Math preparation. I work with students ranging from 5th grade to college level mathematics.

My calling to be an educator started when I was in middle school. I left a public middle school and attended a challenging college-preparatory school where I struggled academically. At first, with the support from my parents, and a private tutor, I was able to focus and gradually improve. Again, my parents provided me with numerous hours of tutoring and I was able to gain admission to Morehouse College. At Morehouse College, I majored in Computer Science with minor in Mathematics.

I did not begin my career as a teacher, but rather began as a computer programmer (Microsoft excel based minor Visual Basic). Unsatisfied with my new job, I found a job as a math tutor for a SES provider (free tutoring for all students with free or reduced lunches). Within a month of tutoring, I was working with ten struggling students. With my own history of struggle and the combination of my success in mathematics, I quickly found some keys to help the students’ struggles of learning mathematical concepts. My students quickly became more successful and I became one of the most requested tutor for the company.

Completely elated with my success, I created a non-profit organization called Neo Networks. Neo Networks became a company that fosters the development of the whole child, especially in the area of computer literacy and mathematics. These skills, also stimulated the desire for life-long learning, intellectual curiosity, and promotes individual self-esteem. As the CEO, I found partner companies to work with, including the Reef Center, DeKalb Workforce, Job Corps, and Clarkston Community center. Neo Networks set out to help students of all ages in the area of computer literacy and mathematics. Realizing my love for education, I decided to improve myself by enrolling in a graduate program at Georgia State University in Math Secondary Education. I changed my career path, from computer programmer to a high school math teacher.

On December 2013, I graduated with a Masters in Secondary Education and after four years at my first high school, I finally moved to Parkview High school in Lilburn Georgia. Over the last 8 years, I have mentored, tutored, and taught students of all kinds (even home-schooled students). With in the past year I opened a tutoring center where I tutor students in small groups. I create no more than five to one ratios to maintain focus and personal interactions with each student.

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.
