About Jaison

I want to teach you math and physics! My 14 years of experience span both research and education. I am a published research physicist having earned my physics doctorate at the College of William and Mary. As an educator, I have been a physics teaching assistant, adjunct professor and of course, private tutor.

My teaching style is fluid with a heavy emphasis on visuals and working with graphs. I start with procedures until students feel comfortable enough to jump into concepts and how they are connected. When time permits and the interest is there, I present multiple solutions to problems. Graphs are essential as they attach a visual to a concept or a problem. And finally, I possess a number of advanced workbooks for any students interested in math enrichment.

Below, you will find my rates, schedule and details of my teaching experience. I look forward to working with you and helping your student get that A.

Rates:
Tutoring at a public location: $60/hr
Home visits: $70/hr

Schedule (as of February 1st):
Tuesdays and Thursdays: between 10 and 4 near Rockville (North Bethesda, Derwood, Aspen Hill, North Potomac, Travilah and Gaithersburg). I am available to meet students at universities and community colleges in the area during the day.
Some evening hours available, please inquire about schedule.

Experience:
Private Tutor: 1300+ hours, mostly with math students within the MCPS math curriculum including 2.0.
Physics Teaching Assistant: 5 years, undergrad and grad level.
Adjunct Professor: Precalculus I + II (MA 143, MA 153), College Algebra (MA 141) Calculus I + II (MA 181, MA 182)
Currently scheduled to teach Fundamentals of Physics in the spring of 2016.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Discrete Math

I took a semester of Discrete Math in College and earned an A in the class. Discrete math accompanies a degree in computer science. I also took three semesters of coding in C++ and have an immense amount of programming experience in my various research projects. Furthermore, most of my research falls under the heading of applied mathematics so I feel that I am more than qualified to tutor this subject.
