About Jacob

I believe that students should be prepared for whatever path they choose to walk in life. Many of the essential skills needed to be successful are learned in elementary and middle school. These skills are mastered and learned as children, however these skills are carried on and used everyday in adulthood. It is important that we as educators provide each and every student with their full potential. My teaching style includes a variety of different methods, and challenge students to think critically about the world around them. Students learn in a variety of ways and educators need to be get to know their students so that they can meet all of their educational needs. My teaching style includes a lot of real world application and hands on learning. I want to be a tutor because I think that all students have the potential to be successful in school. It's about giving them the tools they need to succeed.

Education is my passion. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner, and I am constantly looking for new ways to reach my students. Educators open up countless doors for our youth. This may be in the form of college, or a vocational school, however I believe that students should be given as many opportunities as possible. I graduated from Springfield College in May 2015 with my Masters' Degree in Education following successful completion of student teaching at Kensington International School in Springfield MA. During my studies at Springfield College I was also a graduate assistant from fall semester 2014 through spring semester 2015. During my time as a graduate assistant, I co-taught two classes and provided additional support for undergraduate students. I am licensed in Massachusetts to teach elementary (1-6). I currently teach general ed. sixth grade science and English at JFK Middle School in Northampton MA. I run an after school homework helper club where we meet once a week and students are given additional support with challenging homework assignments. As a tutor, I believe that I can offer more students access to the tools that they need to be successful.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping your students achieve success both inside and outside of the classroom.
