Hi everyone! My name's Jake. I'm a recently certified science teacher and an exam prep tutor. I've worked both in school settings as a substitute teacher, aide, and lead teacher and tutoring settings of small groups and 1-1 instruction. For the past five years, I've prepared and taught classes across all grade levels and disciplines, for courses and standardized tests, and for all levels of students. I love being able to

I've worked with students in middle school and high school classes covering new math standards, common core, integrated math and beyond. I've been a math nerd my entire life. When I was in high school, I was a year ahead in math courses and scored a 36 on the math portion of the ACT. When I was finishing my undergraduate degree, I continued to take math courses as my "fun" electives. To this day, I continue to take every ACT test when it is released just to see if I've still got it. I love learning newer, faster, tricks to solving problems and passing that knowledge onto students.

I received my first bachelor's degree from the University of Chicago in biology; after that, I continued to take classes to supplement that degree and earn my teaching certification for high school science classes. I have extensive experience taking, teaching and tutoring a variety of courses from a number of biology disciplines. I try to tutor these subjects the same way I would teach them: bringing in real world connections to abstract ideas and teaching different studying techniques for various concepts.

If you have any questions, general or specific, about hours, flexibility, my background, or anything else that comes to mind, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to set up a time to speak on the phone or in person if you would prefer. I hope to hear from you!
