About Jason

I have ten years of high school science teaching experience. While at IowaState I majored in biology, and I have also added endorsements in general science and chemistry. During my teaching career I have taught biology, chemistry, physical science and earth science. I have also worked one on one with students as an at-risk teacher. I currently stay home with my three young boys, but I am looking for the opportunity to keep use my teaching skills to help students out. I enjoy the opportunity to help people become more comfortable with science, and I would like to continue to grow and improve as a teacher.

Each child is unique, so I work to find what methods and approaches work best for each. Success as a student can be greatly enhanced by a learning experience that is tailored to his/her strengths. That is how I will attempt to make students successful in a tutoring setting.

ACT Science

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Science

I got a 30 in ACT science as a junior in high school. When looking into tutoring at Huntington Learning Center two years ago, I retook the ACT and got a perfect 36 on the science section. My teaching experience encompasses many different types of science, and I emphasized the collection and interpretation of data. That is much of what the ACT science section asks a student to do.

Algebra 1

Having taught science for ten years, I used algebra on essentially a daily basis. Variable equations, graphing and slopes are all things used regularly for science material. I took math classes through Calculus and earned A's while doing so. I feel that I could be of great help to a student struggling with Algebra I.

Biology

I majored in Biology at Iowa State University. I also have 7 years of experience teaching it at the high school level. As an at-risk teacher, I also tutored students one on one in biology, as well as other subjects.

Chemistry

My teaching license includes a Chemistry endorsement. I Taught high school chemistry for the last five years of my teaching career. I took enough credits in chemistry to be endorsed coming out of college, but I also took a 5 credit organic chemistry graduate class to further my knowledge. I emphasized the interpretation of collected data to teach the core concepts of chemistry.

Physical Science

I have a general science endorsement on my teaching license. I have taught physical science classes, as well as chemistry courses throughout my ten years of teaching. I taught many lab-based courses and emphasized collection and interpretation of data, as well as inferences that could be drawn from lab results.
