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.

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

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.

Thorough and Patient

Jaison was patient, methodical and thorough which made for a very successful tutoring session! My daughter felt more comfortable and confident after the session and looks forward to another session.

Patient and caring

Jaison has been very patient with our son who is way behind the eight ball in his Algebra course. We have no idea whether he'll be able to complete the absolute mountain of Algebra (400 questions, 33 mini-test, 39 on-line assignments) by the end of the course, but Jaison is sticking with him and helping him as much as he can.

Thank you

Jason, I didn't get a chance to mention that my daughter made the honor roll this quarter, she actually got an B in her AP Calc.

Lorena , 8 lessons with Jaison

Thoughtful

Jaison really wants his students to "get it", not just going through homework and quizzes and the like. I learn real concepts and come away from each session with a skill that I can apply moving forward.

Great Tutoring

My son was struggling with Algebra concepts and I can say that Jaison has been instrumental in clarifying many of the concepts for my son and his feeling comfortable with math. Yesterday we got his latest grading card and he was back as a straight A's student. Thanks Jaison!

Jose, 34 lessons with Jaison
Tutor responded:

You're very welcome Jose! Please congratulate him for me. I'm proud of him for making straight A's again!

Understands his pupil well

Jaison continues to make sure that my young adult son (who has special needs) is focused and gently pushes him to work on more difficult tasks. He makes my son feel proud of what he accomplishes each week!

Thanks for the kind words Mimi!

Very patient and encouraging.

Jaison is tutoring my daughter in AP Calculus. He's taking the time to identify foundational concepts that she has problems with that are preventing her from understanding calculus. By working with her on these concepts (mainly ones that she has forgotten or never learned from algebra II), her attitude is changing from feeling that she just can't learn calculus to a sense that she's very capable of it with hard work in the right areas. He's very patient and is building her confidence, both of which are key to enabling her to excel. I'm very very happy that we found Jaison. *** Three months since my original review and we couldn't be happier with Jaison. My daughter has gone from almost failing AP Calculus to having a B. Jaison continues to patiently identify her areas of weakness and find ways to help her understand. He is a wonderful tutor!

Great tutor

Jaison has been a great tutor for my son, an eighth grader who is taking algebra. He is very serious about his job but, at the same time he is very patient with his student. He totally understands his student's age and his needs. He knows the material very well and is able to answer all his questions. He pays attention to all details about his students, their abilities, and weaknesses. You know that by reading his reports after each class. He is also very flexible with schedule. He is a great communicator. His respond to emails are very quick. My son has been very lucky to have Jaison as his tutor. For above reasons we call him a GREAT TUTOR.

Very Patient and Thorough

I met with Jaison for the first time on Friday evening. We went over a few problems that he asked me to work on ahead of time and he was able to explain in simple terms what I missed. He has always been very responsive via email and tries to ensure that all of your questions are answered and gives next steps. Wonderful first-time experience with a tutor.
