I currently work as an educational administrator for a local university and as a personal tutor. My most recent teaching position was as an adjunct instructor teaching the Student Success Seminar for a small nursing school. I have taught at a number of premier charter schools in Chicago and served as an associate dean of students and teacher for twelve years at a private college preparatory school in Houston.
Currently, I hold an Illinois teaching certificate in social studies with eight endorsements including world history, American history, European history, geography, sociology, economics, government/civics, and secondary education.

The majority of my teaching experiences is in the social sciences and science. Courses I have taught include: Advanced Placement U. S. History NREMT Courses
World History (Honors, Modern, and Ancient) Basic Chemistry
American Government & Politics Biology
Basic Macro and Micro Economics Reading & Writing
Human & Physical Geography Speech & Communications

I have also been a proctor for the HSPT, PLAN, SAT and ACT exams over the last fifteen years.

During my tenure at St. Pius X High School I was the boys' head soccer coach and assistant varsity baseball coach and from 2012-2014 I was an Associate Dean of Students. My teaching career started while I was in the United States Air Force, where I taught survival school, self-aid/buddy care, and Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured (a college level EMT course for National Certification).

I find that students must be an active part in their own learning as we all learn somewhat differently. Over the last ten years I have focused on improving my students and athletes study skills, reading comprehension, organizational ability, and their own personal best methods of learning. I have extensive experience and success with students with lear

Personable, smart and excellent tutor!

Jason is very smart as well as positive and energetic. His passion for teaching and vast experience as an educator was clear right away. Jason took the time to really talk to my high school age son and get to know his strengths and weaknesses. He is collaborating with my son to develop a long-term plan for success as well as strategies to study smarter and reach his goals in all of his classes. Now, my son is more excited about school than he has ever been and can see a clear path to success. Jason is an A+ motivator and tutor!
