Vassar College (Education)
I have been working as a tutor at many Boston-area public and private schools, including: Winchester, Lexington, Newton, Wellesley public schools; BB+N, St. Mark's, Brooks, Rivers, Commonwealth. Much of my experience has been with high-functioning students with learning differences (dyslexia, Asperger's, ADHD, etc.), working to help them find ways to apply their strengths to the areas of concern. I have tutored high school math + science coursework, as well as general executive functioning, and also lots of test preparation. If you are seeking a professional who can make a difference in your child's educational success, please consider using my services.

Jason is definitely a wonderful tutor! He helps our daughter in Chemistry AP and Calculus honors, and she is doing significantly better in both subjects. Jason has a strong knowledge of the math and science subjects and is very passionate about teaching. He explains all the topics very well, and it is very easy and enjoyable to learn from him. Jason is also flexible in scheduling, and prompt. He is a fantastic tutor who we highly recommend!
Jason is great. He has extensive knowledge in strategic management for test talking. I've been through a few tutors and Jason is by far the best!
Jason has been great with my sometimes unfocused, very chatty son. His tutoring has been the key to my son's considerably improved math grade. He's patient and provides tips and study methods that really make a difference. My son enjoys the sessions and has learned a great deal.
Jason is a dynamic and very helpful tutor. He is very patient and always available to quickly respond to the calls and messages. My son really enjoyed lessons from Jason for his SSAT preparation. Among 3 different tutors, my son liked Jason the best for his honest opinions and advice on various things related to SSAT prep, private school applications and his essay writing. He would like to continue to take lessons from Jason for his SAT or any other high school subjects in future.
Jason helped my daughter with her Statistics course. She was struggling and after working with Jason she gained confidence and saw immediate results. Even her teacher is amazed with the improved test grades - worth every penny.
Jason is helping with ACT prep in math- he has great tips and advice, keeps his info to the point and on task
Jason has been an immense help to my daughter. She had missed a few of the early concepts and had lost confidence. He has very patiently explained many of the basic chemistry concepts that she missed in her class. He knows the level of detail required for High School chemistry so is able to easily cover topics at an appropriate depth. He is able to tell her what things to just know and memorize vs what concepts to learn methods. While our immediate goal was to prepare for a mid-term, his patience and knowledge make him a good fit for keeping her up to speed with her class.
Jason is very mellow, which compliments my son. Jason seems to bring out my son's capabilities in a relaxed manner. My son doesn't like to be told what to do, so Jason's methods are a success while my son gets tutored without thinking it is an adult lecturing him.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been working as a tutor at some of the highest profile schools in the Boston area since 1992 and have a wealth of experience dealing with all kinds of students in a vast array of subjects. Due to this, I teach an integrated approach to learning, which can help students in almost any set of circumstances.
My experience teaching students at schools all over the Boston area has given me tremendous insight in how to quickly and effectively guide students.
I hold the NSCAA national youth diploma coaching badge, the NFHS soccer coaching credentials, the USSF "D" course, and have completed the equivalent to the KNVB CT-1 course. I have been coaching soccer since the fall of 1993, including 9 years as the head coach of the varsity girls soccer program at Somerville high school, and 16 years of coaching at Boston Soccer Academy/Boston Lightning summer camps.
