Hi, everyone! I'm a graduate of McGill University, Honours B.A. in Economics. While my main focus may be on economics, I chose the discipline because I felt it was a way to put my passion and talent for mathematics to good use.

Hi, everyone! I'm a graduate of McGill University, Honours B.A. in Economics. While my main focus may be on economics, I chose the discipline because I felt it was a way to put my passion and talent for mathematics to good use. It allowed for intellectual challenge, while also offering opportunity to continue far in mathematics as elective courses. The contexts I was exposed to mathematics in led me to developing a multi-dimensional style of both learning and teaching the discipline, and often I've found that I'm able to help others or receive help by getting a new perspective on whatever problem I'm faced with. I found personally that the way to succeed in math is not by memorizing formulas, but to begin with a solid foundation in pattern observation. A formula is only as useful as the situations you're able to apply it in, and you will get much further when you're able to spot variations of patterns instead of only recognizing textbook example patterns. Contrary to what many believe, there are many different ways to solve every kind of math problem, and I enjoy helping students discover their perspective on mathematics as well as offering mine.

Over my years, I've taken six semesters of calculus, four semesters of advanced econometrics and statistical methods, and six semesters of calculus-based advanced microeconomic theory. Additionally, I maintained a 3.8 average in all of my core courses in Economics and Mathematics. Though there were no professional opportunities for tutoring, I often tutored classmates and fraternity brothers who were in courses I'd taken. I used tutoring as an opportunity to help those around me, as well as to reaffirm my own knowledge of the subject. Tutoring works out to be a valuable learning opportunity for both of us! I work the best overnight, so I'm available late nights (10pm-4am) for those who are night owls or just need some last minute prep, but I can also make time for morning lessons if you need! Send me a message and we can see if I'm able to help you succeed.

BEST Experience with a Tutor I have EVER Had!!!!!

I am taking Intro to Stats this quarter and have been struggling all quarter. I need help on a write up assignment and just general help understanding formulas and terms. So basically in the hour I spent with Jacob I learned more from him then I have all quarter from my Professor. He met me where I was at, used pictures and didn't over complicate things! Most importantly he was kind and patient. I have felt so incompetent and was so nervous that working with a tutor would just make me feel worse, I actually felt more confident after our session! My only negative is I didn't find him sooner! I will use Jacob again and have already referred him to others.

Patient and thorough tutor

I had a bad experience with a prior tutor in which they were extremely impatient, they'd laughed at my questions, and they were completely unprepared and left me guiding the entire session. So, you can imagine my relief when Jacob arrived prepared and demonstrated incredible patience with me. He truly showed compassion and understanding, and a strong desire to help. I never felt patronized or belittled, and I truly appreciated his help. I will definitely use his services again.

Excellent tutor

First lesson with Jacob - he was incredibly organized and thorough. In just one lesson my son came away feeling more confident about stats than he has in months. I’m excited to see how much he’ll learn this semester.

Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

We went over the basics of linear algebra and he helped me throughout all the basics! he provided step-by-step explanations for every question and was very patient. He responds very quickly and helped me even after our tutoring session was over! he was amazing in showing how to go about solving problems and I was very appreciative of the extra time he took to show me step-by-step solutions as well! overall, he is a great tutor and I would recommend him to anyone!
