Bio

I have a strong background as a teaching assistant for undergraduate classes, such as calculus and algebra, as well as an extensive background in tutoring. For the past two years, I have been working as a teaching assistant for Lehigh University’s calculus courses, where I regularly held recitations sessions and office hours. I enjoy interacting with students, as well as providing extra help during office hours. I have also spent 2 years tutoring individuals in the different mathematics...

I have a strong background as a teaching assistant for undergraduate classes, such as calculus and algebra, as well as an extensive background in tutoring. For the past two years, I have been working as a teaching assistant for Lehigh University’s calculus courses, where I regularly held recitations sessions and office hours. I enjoy interacting with students, as well as providing extra help during office hours. I have also spent 2 years tutoring individuals in the different mathematics courses at The College of New Jersey's Tutoring center.

I would say that my teaching style is one that reinforces critical thinking. I do not wish for students to just memorize how to do particular problems. Instead, I want them to gain a better way of thinking in order to attack said problems. I want students to question all their answers, learning to check their answers with different methods to gain consistent results instead of taking their immediate answer as accurate. If an answer is incorrect, rather than immediately showing them the correct way, I want them to understand why the answer is wrong in order to prevent future errors.

Perfect tutor.

Jake was a great tutor in precalculous. He had my son work on problems and would provide suggestions and help as needed. He's very nice, easy going, and bright.
