Bio

I have ten years experience tutoring high school and college students in chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical or analytical), physics and mathematics (geometry, calculus and algebra) on both a one on one level as well as in big groups. My undergraduate was a major in chemistry with a minor in math after which I completed a masters in chemistry.

I have ten years experience tutoring high school and college students in chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical or analytical), physics and mathematics (geometry, calculus and algebra) on both a one on one level as well as in big groups. My undergraduate was a major in chemistry with a minor in math after which I completed a masters in chemistry. I was the top student in all my chemistry classes, so I have a clear understanding of all the concepts to do with chemistry. I will be able to help you or your child to understand these concepts, using real life examples, and will also be able to coach you to the techniques which will enable you to answer them every time.

I tutor because I love working with children. I am happy to work with anyone who is willing to work and am very patient with students as they try to understand new concepts. I have been in the Glenview area the past four years and have tutored high schoolers from Notre Dame, New Trier, GBS, GBN, Deerfield High, Loyola Academy and Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart. So if you are really struggling with chemistry or math or just want to improve your grades I'm the guy for you.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have a BS in math and 10 years high school math tutoring. I have 4 years of tutoring experience in the Northshore area.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have a major in mathematics and have been tutoring all levels of high school math in the Northshore for the last 7 years. Algebra II is one of my favorite courses to tutor and is one of the most important for future math courses. Because of this I strive to ensure students understand and know the material well, so that they are in good standing for the next few years of math.
Calculus,

Calculus

For my undergraduate degree I completed a double major in math and chemistry. At college I took Calc I-III as well as several additional math courses (including graph theory, PDEs and linear algebra). I have tutored in the Northshore area for about seven years, working with students from GBS, GBN, Loyola, New Trier, Stevenson and Lake Forest Academy, as well as several colleges. My goal when working with students is to give them the methods and understanding to solve any question, so that they feel confident and empowered when doing work on their own.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have an MS in chemistry with over 64 credit hours in chemistry classes. I have been tutoring for 7 years in the Northshore area, working with students from GBN, GBS, New Trier, Loyola Academy, Highland Park and Lake Forest, and across all levels of chemistry, specializing in AP chemistry classes. I work to create a clear understanding of the subject so that students feel empowered and confident in the class. I also have multiple years experience working with most chemical instrumentation.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have been tutoring geometry in the NorthShore area for the last 7 years and while it is not the most challenging of math courses, students often struggle in this field of math because it is the first time they must write actual proofs. I focus on making sure students understand the methods they need to do this effectively while also helping them with techniques that allow them to visualize and solve problems. I firmly believe that every student can excel in this class with the correct help and some good practice.
Physics,

Physics

I have tutored students in all levels of high school physics for over 10 years. In general I focus on helping my students to understand the concepts involved in physics so that they can dismantle questions down to a few basic ideas. In the past 6 years I have worked with students from GBS, GBN, New Trier, Maine South, Deerfield High School and Loyola and have helped students in the most basic physics classes through AP Physics 1,2 and C.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and have worked with students in the lowest to the highest level precalculus courses. My past students have included some from New Trier, GBS, GBN, Loyola, Deerfield, Maine South and others. I am extremely experienced with students working in regular/honors precalculus courses usually covering everything including: trigonometry, vectors, parametric graphs and rational expression; and am also very familiar with classes which cover analytic geometry, discrete math and/or statistics. Whether you are simply trying to make it through this class or excelling at the highest level, I can ensure that you master the material and feel confident in your own work.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

I have tutored students in trigonometry around the NorthShore area for over 7 years and am familiar with the content from schools such as New Trier, GBS, GBN, Deerfield and Loyola among others. While this may be a challenging section of math for some students, with the assistance I provide it can easily be made a subject which is not only painless but also enjoyable.

Excellent, patient tutor!

We are very lucky to have found Jason! He is helping my daughter to prepare for the Physics AP exam. He is extremely knowledgeable in the subject and also very patient. He is able to explain complex problems into simpler terms. He is also preparing her not only on the subject matter, but on how to approach problems and questions!

Fabio, 13 lessons with Jason

Very professional and very helpful

My daughter very much appreciated Jason! He had the perfect combination of being very knowledgeable but also very communicative with a great personality. I appreciate the fact that he stepped in a very short notice and helped my daughter not only learn the material but gain confidence.

Barry, 4 lessons with Jason

Great physics Tutor!

Jason is very helpful and patient. He has helped tremendously teaching HS physics. He knows the material and is very reliable. He has made himself available for questions on off tutoring days.

Jill, 14 lessons with Jason

Great teaching skills and very knowledgeable!!!

My daughter had her first tutoring session with Jason this week and she couldn't stop telling me how much he helped her!!!! She was delighted to have all of her questions answered and she truly enjoyed his teaching skills. He explained things with detail and great patience. We are very happy that Jason had an available spot to help my daughter. In conclusion, Jason is the perfect tutor for my daughter. She is looking forward to her next tutoring session

Danya and Nadya, 3 lessons with Jason

disciplined tutor

Jason does a good job of preparing the student and firmly walking him through each step of a problem. Thanks, Jason! Jason had good flexibility to meet with the student either at home or in a public library.

William, 4 lessons with Jason

More than just knowledge of the material

Jason knows the content. He is able to communicate it well. More than that, he challenges your student to live up to their potential. And that is invaluable.

Jennifer, 28 lessons with Jason

Extremely knowledgeable and able to teach people.

Jason is a great asset to my son. He has the ability to convey his knowledge to the student so that the student understands the concepts.

Susan, 91 lessons with Jason

Off to a great start with a smart tutor who put my daughter at ease

My daughter just had her first tutoring session with Jason. She was very nervous as the topic (Chemistry), and the tutor, are new. But Jason was kind and patient and helped to ease her nerves. Jason was prepared and had content ready to go to get her started. We're looking forward to continuing to work with him in the months ahead.

Sue, 36 lessons with Jason

Jason was awesome!

The best thing I can say about Jason is that my son said "I definitely want Jason next year to help me prepare for ACT and anything else I need mom. He is so smart but he brought it to my level." Jason has worked with my son for maybe 8 lessons in both Geometry & Chemistry, areas he struggled with, he spent extra time with him, worked with him and brought him two grades higher. He gave him the confidence to do what he knew he could.
