About Jesse


Bio

Why did I decide to become a tutor? An excellent question, and an easy one to answer! I remember being a middle school student struggling with algebra. The formulas and equations my teacher was writing on the board might as well have been another language. My mother hired a tutor to help assist me. I remember his smiling face, friendly demeanor, and, most importantly, his desire to see me succeed. Thanks to his care, I found success in the mathematics world and went on to win the Algebra 2...

Why did I decide to become a tutor? An excellent question, and an easy one to answer! I remember being a middle school student struggling with algebra. The formulas and equations my teacher was writing on the board might as well have been another language. My mother hired a tutor to help assist me. I remember his smiling face, friendly demeanor, and, most importantly, his desire to see me succeed. Thanks to his care, I found success in the mathematics world and went on to win the Algebra 2 award as a high school student. I remember the amazing feeling of success I had when I overcame my struggles in math. I have a strong desire to help others achieve this same feeling as well!

I completed a full year of mathematics education at Purdue University before deciding to switch to Agricultural Economics, so I would be able to find a career on my family's farm. I have experience teaching as a substitute for my local school corporation and also taught a computer class this past spring to help cover for a teacher on maternity leave. While subbing, I was given the opportunity to teach lesson plans in Algebra 1 and 2 left behind by the regular teacher. I would help any students struggling and answer their questions.

Another subject in which I am both passionate and knowledgeable is Spanish. I have a minor in Spanish from Purdue University where I studied abroad in Spain. Whether you're a high school student needing help in a course, an adult wanting to learn a new language, or trying to prepare for a trip to a Spanish-speaking country, I'm the tutor for you! I use our session time to teach you exactly what you need. I provide you with resources that you can use on the days that you don't have a session scheduled so you can keep learning even without me.

I have experience teaching and tutoring homeschool students in algebra, pre-algebra, pre-calculus, and Spanish levels 1, 2, and 3.

As a tutor, I understand that questions may arise throughout the week on days when we do not have sessions scheduled. That's why, in addition to the tutoring I offer my students, I also offer free homework help. If you or your child find they are struggling on a homework assignment and need assistance from me ASAP, all you need to do is call me up! As long as the session does not go over 15 minutes, you will not be charged.

I have a passion for education that I would love to pass on to your children! I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child find success in whatever subject area you may be struggling with!
