About Jacob

The greatest gift you can give to someone is the power of knowledge. I love teaching and challenging my students to grow their understanding of difficult subject matter. As a tutor, it is my job to inspire your confidence in your abilities and give you the tools to succeed. My work as a small business and start-up monetization consultant allows me to share my knowledge with my clients and their stakeholders all the time. I tutored coursework in Finance, Accounting, Economics, and Math through Calculus I during my time in college, and it was extremely rewarding. Since then, I tutored the same subjects at my alma mater.

I'm also a musician, an avid reader and history buff, and I have studied politics and history extensively. My college coursework was focused on math and business, so I am strongly suited to aid studies in these disciplines. Seeing a useful application of a concept and practicing that application leads to a greater understanding of the underlying idea.

I hold myself to very high standards and will do the same for you. I seek feedback after my lessons, and if you're not completely satisfied with my work, I will not bill you for my time. Depending on the frequency, duration, and expectations of the tutoring, I will provide homework, skill assessments, and periodic progress reporting. I offer a free hour-long Skype or phone consultation to establish learning goals if necessary, as long as your payment information is on file with WyzAnt.

Due to the nature of my work, my days are often fully scheduled before they begin, but I try to remain flexible. I offer a strict 8 hour cancellation window with the opportunity for make-up lessons, and assess a cancellation fee in the amount of 50% of the scheduled lesson fee.

I look forward to hearing from you. I hope we can work together and accomplish your learning objectives.

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.

Business

My educational background is in Finance, which was within the School of Business and Economics at my AACSB Accredited University (Michigan Technological University). Since graduation, I have worked as a consultant to various high-tech startups and some local small businesses. My primary focus as a professional has been in business development, accounting/finance, and marketing.

General Music

I have been playing guitar and bass since 2002, and picked up piano in 2013. During this time, I have studied a variety of styles as a solo and ensemble player. I have also written hundreds of songs with various groups in the styles of pop, indie rock, punk, metal, r&b, blues, and hip-hop.

Marketing

I graduated from an AACSB Accredited University (Michigan Technological University) within the School of Business and Economics, where I was required to take coursework in Marketing as part of my education. While there, I was an extremely active member of the American Marketing Association, eventually climbing to Vice President of the University's Chapter. Since graduation, I have worked as a consultant to various startups and small businesses. My primary focus as a professional has been in business development, accounting/finance, and marketing.
