About Jason

I am a math and physics tutor with several years of experience, including experience teaching. While working as a tutor at my school, I was frequently one of the most sought tutors for my ability to explain the problem (often told that I did a better job of it than the teacher), as well as my patience with students. I also tutored small groups at the same time, when several students from the same class would come in. Seeing that moment of understanding when a student "gets it" is a great feeling!

I tutor high school and college physics, as well as pre-algebra through calculus. I believe in guiding students to the answer, not in giving the answer; I will often use similar problems though to demonstrate the idea/process for a problem. I prefer tutoring to teaching, and will try to help the student understand what they've already been taught by their own teacher, instead of teaching them new material myself (that may conflict with what their teacher has taught, or that they're unprepared for).

I am fairly flexible with my time, but I still prefer a 24-hour cancellation policy. Sessions can take place at the home (provided that it's nearby), or at a neutral location, like a library.

Hope to hear from you soon!
