About Jacob


Bio

I'm Jacob. I'm from Los Angeles and currently attending Grinnell College and majoring in Physics. I've always enjoyed learning and teaching science and math at all levels, but in my experience, the STEM classes I truly became invested in were those with passionate and down to earth teachers. I approach tutoring in the same way in an attempt to inspire the student in the same way that I was inspired by my great teachers.

I'm Jacob. I'm from Los Angeles and currently attending Grinnell College and majoring in Physics. I've always enjoyed learning and teaching science and math at all levels, but in my experience, the STEM classes I truly became invested in were those with passionate and down to earth teachers. I approach tutoring in the same way in an attempt to inspire the student in the same way that I was inspired by my great teachers. Life-long learning can be motivated by sparking curiosity and building confidence in our ability to overcome challenges. My goal is to have my students understand the work they're doing on a deeper-than-surface level which will lead to long-term success in these subjects rather than success on one homework assignment.

I have background in all levels of high school math and science and SAT prep as well. In my experience tutoring, when a student is struggling they sometimes accept the belief that they aren't smart enough or aren't "left-brained" and let their ego get in the way of learning. My goal is to help student understand the subject in their own way, rather than repeating definitions, so that they have more confidence in their intuition.

I hope to help in any science or math course and inspire long-term success. As I am a college student, I am never without my phone so feel free to reach me at any time and I will get back to you promptly.

I scored a 1560/1600 on the official SAT in 2018 with a 760/800 on the reading and writing sections of the exam. Through my studying for the exam I developed many key strategies that will help anyone in need of a score boost. Additionally, I am aware of the shortcomings of many SAT prep courses, including the program I attended, thus I am able to avoid those inefficiencies and bloated costs.

Fantastic AP Physics/Bio Tutor!

Before working with Jacob I was struggling to understand Physics, specifically how all of the information connected. Jacob explained it in a simple, easily understood manner and helped me to boost my confidence and understanding of the subject. It was brilliant working with Jacob, and I would 10/10 do it again!

Janie, 23 lessons with Jacob

Freat Tutor!

Jacob is a great tutor! My son had his first tutoring lesson with him and he was able to understand everything he had not understood previously. Excellent experience!

Sandra, 10 lessons with Jacob

Physics AP

Thank you Jacob for your very informative lesson. I was stuck understanding the concept and you really helped me figure it out without directly giving the answer. I definitely intend to start a regular schedule after the holidays

Catherine, 1 lesson with Jacob

Excellent Tutor!

Jacob is an exceptionally effective tutor. I joined the tutoring session completely confused about my physics topics, but I left the session with a good understanding and all my questions answered. I highly recommend Jacob because he's knowledgeable and good at explaining complex topics.

Siva, 8 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgeable and engaging tutor

Gets straight to the heart of the need. Quickly assertains where the struggle is and finds a starting point that is engaging and quickly progresses to the goal.

Matthew, 7 lessons with Jacob

Great!

Jacob has been working with my high schooler on physics for a couple weeks now, and will continue to work with him regularly. The sessions seem to be productive, and my high schooler is now caught up with his online physics classwork/homework.

Sarah, 4 lessons with Jacob

Great at explaining and knowledgeable

Jacob was great at reviewing the topic with me and helping me understand my practice problems. He explained everything in terms I understand, and brought it all down to my level; he never went over my head with something I didn’t know. He was a pleasure to work with and I will be working with him again!

Mallika, 2 lessons with Jacob

Knowledgable

He is very knowledgeable and recommended some resources to help with Physics. He is very good at explaining the concepts and listened to what I needed help with and helping me in that specific area.

John, 2 lessons with Jacob

Good tutor!

He’s patient and was very helpful ! My son is 15 and doesn’t like to talk too much. He is happy with Jacob and understanding physics better. Thank you , looking forward to future lessons with Jacob.
