About Jacob

I am currently a student at Mercer University studying to be a Mechanical Engineer with a minor in math. I have helped fellow students in various subject areas; however, I am best suited to help students fulfill their math, reading, and writing needs. Throughout high school, I regularly tutored peers in Pre-Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus. Additionally, I helped edit other student's papers and help them improve their scores.

When it comes to how I approach tutoring, I have a three-step process. First is getting to know who I am tutoring and what their specific needs are. Then, based off of their material, or material I provide, I will take time to help teach them the subject they are struggling with and help them practice the material. Finally, I will take input from their graded assignments and what I learn from my own time with them to get a more specific learning curriculum developed for the student. One of my life's greatest joys is helping others improve their skills.

Having always been an A+ student in math, and completed various college-level courses in math, namely Calculus 1 and 2, I believe I am more that qualified to help student's improve upon their math skills. Though I did not major in English, it still remains a passion of mine. I have always been a proficient writer and orator. I have completed all college-level English courses that have been available to me. I believe that all writing has its foundations in rhetorical devices and helping students employ them will improve their writing.

As a tutor, I will help students practice their own writing and refine articles they have already written. Should a student need more help with basic rules of English, I will take the time to help them learn using books as a learning device. In short, I believe that getting students engaged in reading and understanding what they read means, will help them become better speakers and writings and generally better English students.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me. As I understand that it can be a concern of parents to leave their children with a stranger, I encourage them to stay for a lesson if they would like to or even take the time to contact me and get to know who I am.
