I have over four years of experience tutoring with hundreds of hours of tutoring time. I have an excellent background in tutoring and the courses I cover, much of which I got when I studied Civil Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA)
Although it is a small college of 1600 undergraduates it has a sterling reputation for math, science and engineering. Math and science courses at WPI built upon a strong foundation which started at Oakland Technical High School's Engineering Academy (Math, Descriptive Geometry, Physics, CAD) and Paideia Program (English, History, Government). Although I know that my skills have expanded since high-school, I note my experience there as over 3/4 of my tutees are of the highschool level with the rest usually being college or occasionally being at the middle-school level.
I have been taught and consider it true, that if I can't explain a subject then I don't truly understand it. This fact has led me to work with and help other students throughout my education and to this day. I also believe that visualizing a problem makes it easier to solve and gives a greater understanding of the subject whether it is a single line, a geometric problem or even advanced physics or engineering situations. I make an effort to provide multiple ways to understand a problem and to determine what is the best way for each student to learn.
I have a great deal of experience tutoring at many different levels. Starting when I was just tutoring for fun in high-school and college and I would tutor my friends in whatever classes we were taking or that I had taken. For the last four years I have privately tutored dozens of students for a total of over four hundred hours, including over a hundred on this site alone. In addition I also worked at a after-school tutoring company during a school year and then taught a summer course in geometry to the students there.
I am a knowledgeable and patient tutor who has helped numerous students past what they were stuck on and created a solid foundation for them to continue with. I believe I have helped my tutees in their studies which is attested to by my ratings and reviews.

AP Calculus (Single and Multivariate)
Linear Algebra and Matrices
HP and AP Physics (5 on AP test)
Newtonian Physics (Basic and Calculus Based)
Electricity and Magnetism

AP History (5)
AP Government (5)
Matrix applications to computer aided design

Knowledgeable and insightful
Was very familiar with the topic (Calculus) and able to convey ideas and concepts with ease. Jared also connected the specific concept of the chapter with those of future chapters, placing the entire lesson within the context of calculus as a whole. In addition, he was also patient and willing to wait for his student to try to figure out the problem on his own, before he jumped in to help. An overall effective and amiable tutor.Henry, 2 lessons with Jared
Knowledgeable, able to relate with teenagers
Jared has been working with my son for about one month now. Since then, I have seen son's performance in AP Calculus AB steadily improve. He is more enthusiastic about math and finishes his homework a lot quicker than he used to prior to these tutoring sessions. Jared is more than qualified on the technical subject matter, but most importantly, he has been able to relate very quickly with my teenage son in a manner that prior instructors have had difficulties with. Based on the one month experience I have had with Jared, I would highly recommend him for High school math tutoringPierre, 10 lessons with Jared
Jared has been working with my son for about a month to help with Geometry and Biology. He's done a great job developing rapport, building confidence and helping my son understand concepts and excel in his classes. Top notch tutor!Zoe, 20 lessons with Jared
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Jared worked with my daughter on her Algebra answering all her questions and making sure she understood how to solve each problem.Rose, 3 lessons with Jared
My 17 year old son had a 2 hour session with Jared to prep for the AP Calc test. It was great. Thank you Jared. Highly recommend.John, 1 lesson with Jared
Grades are improving!
Great job working with our daughter to help her with math. Her grades are improving and she has much more confidence.Jeff, 33 lessons with Jared
Easy going and knowledgable.
Jared reviewed some material to make sure my son had the basics down before moving forward. He was very patient.Mary, 11 lessons with Jared
Very experienced, enthusiastic and effective.
Jared taught (my daughter) math concerning circle problems, including angles, arcs, sectors, tangents etc. He taught her quicker ways to solve problems, as well as some things she didn't even know she needed. His experience allowed him to quickly recognize the needs of my daughter and address them. He prepared my daughter for her upcoming 10th grade final math exam at a very competitive school. We are extremely happy with Jared.Blair, 1 lesson with Jared
My son is learning AutoCad with Jared. My son really learns best working on a specific project of intense interest to him and learning as he goes, rather than learning via set lessons. Jared has been excellent at suiting his teaching to these specific needs of my son. He immediately adapted to to fit my son's learning style. I am happy to say that both the project and my son's learning of CAD are going on at a great rate, with enjoyment by all!! Great job, Jared, and many thanks from both father and son!!Eric, 26 lessons with Jared
The perfect tutor
Jared is a smart and understanding tutor. He is easy to reach and always on time. I find it easy to ask him questions about problems that confuse me and pay attention to the material he is explaining. -John DuBois (Zoe's son)Zoe, 27 lessons with Jared
