UMass Amherst (Graduate Coursework)
I am a traffic engineer at a consulting firm in Westford, MA, living in Chelmsford, MA.
I was a University of Massachusetts Amherst Transportation Engineering graduate student through late June 2015 holding a 3.9 GPA and will receive my degree shortly after final email communications. I have taken many classes in Transportation Engineering as well as other aspects of Civil Engineering while here. In addition to my coursework, I worked on research about measuring the effect of deflection angles at roundabout approaches on safety as measured by speeds and critical gaps as well as crash histories.
I completed my bachelor's degree at SUNY Stony Brook in May 2013, where I was a member of the Honors College and I majored in Technological Systems Management with a specialization in Applied Math and Statistics graduating magna cum laude and with a departmental award. I took calculus (1 through 4), 3 courses in statistics, 2 courses in physics, and AP chemistry in high school, in addition to courses in business, project management and engineering economics. I can be helpful with SAT, ACT, and GRE math.
Message me if you (or your son or daughter) need help in math and/or science. I can work well with all ages and levels of ability and have tutored 20 students ranging from elementary school through college including older adults returning to college for a combined total of over 70 hours through Wyzant. I have met with a lot of approval as expressed through the desire for additional sessions and positive ratings.
Please do not hesitate to contact me through Wyzant if you need tutoring and live near Chelmsford, MA.

I was a whole chapter behind in Algebra II in school. In just a couple hours, I was able to fully understand how radicals work, imaginary numbers, adding and subtracting radicals, cubic roots, and applying them to graphs. Jon was extremely helpful and patient if I didn't fully understand a concept. Overall, he has already helped me feel confident in catching up and excelling in the subject.
I am glad I was able to help so much! Thank you for reaching out to me. I am available to come back Saturday and would love to help more if needed.
When my son changed schools, we found out that he was behind in math. So my 11th grade son found himself in Integrated Algebra (Algebra I) with 9th graders. To make matters worse, he came into the school mid-year, missing the beginning lessons. He was embarrassed to let on that he was lost in class and couldn't catch-up on his own.
He has had two tutoring sessions with Jon, and his attitude towards Algebra has changed. He is very impressed that Jon, who is so intelligent, can break down a problem to a level that he can understand. Yesterday, Jon explained what the Latin algebraic math phrases meant in plain English. My son felt like a light bulb went on in his head, and was finally able to better understand the problems. He says that Jon is an excellent tutor who he can relate to and learn from.
My son is now excited about learning Algebra in school, and looks forward to his tutoring sessions with Jon. He also says Jon is an awesome person! Thank you, Jon!
Thank you for helping me with my electrical engineering homework. I'm hoping it will help me for my exam. I am still a little nervous about it because there is so much to know and that I am not sure of. If I need help in the future I will definitely get in touch with you. Thanks again!
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.
