My name is Jake and I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Physics from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota.
I currently work as a Senior R&D Engineer in the medical device industry.
Math and Science were always my favorite subjects growing up. This led to me pursue Engineering in college, which is where I became interested in tutoring. While in college I also spent 3 years volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Twin Cities, and found it very rewarding to work with children. I have found it to be very rewarding to help kids that are stuck in a rut with classes find their way and achieve the success they seek.
I am very open to answering any and all questions before committing to tutoring sessions, so don't hesitate to ask.

Highly knowledgeable, easy to work with and flexible

We have recently started working with Jacob. We were in a panic situation to help our daughter get a handle on geometry and science homework she was behind in. He was responsive, flexible and even came during a snowstorm! He knew the content and immediately gained our daughters trust. He helped our daughter tackle what needed to be done and help her gain the confidence she needed to finish her assignments. He has even helped her work ahead so that she is going into class prepared for future work. He is very easy going, engaging and knows how to teach the material so our daughter could understand it! He even helped her use her calculator! We are very happy working with Jacob!

Best Physics Test Score this year!

Jacob assisted our daughter with Physics class and ACT prep. She recently scored A- on her last Physics exam after a few lessons with Jacob!

Great tutor! Organized, kind and engaging.

Jake is both very professional in his dealings with parents, and also very personable and approachable with our son, who is 14. We have already seen quick progress in our son's math abilities in both his understanding of the material and also his grades. Jake is patient, and able to meet a student where they are at. He is organized in his approach to the tutoring and makes sure that the student not only gets correct answers on work, but understands the process to arrive at an answer. He works to assist true learning, and makes sure to circle back over problems that were taught to work them another way so a student can demonstrate mastery and knowledge. He is able to cover a great deal of information in his tutoring sessions. Our son enjoys his tutoring sessions and looks forward to seeing Jake. We appreciate that Jake makes the most of the time and money spent on tutoring. He is prompt, gets right to work, is friendly and well-spoken. A great combination of a smart mathematician and a good teacher. We are grateful for his help!

In our daughter's words, "very relatable and very intelligent."

From minute 1 of her 1st session with Jacob, our daughter was at ease. He was respectful and approachable and got right to work. He was quick to tailor his examples of physics to her interests, especially sports. We, the parents, appreciate Jacob's immediate feedback of the sessions and his sensitivity to to her feelings about science and math struggles. We see her more confident in her abilities. High praise for Jacob's coaching of our student as well as his deep knowledge of the material. We feel it is money well spent. We see our daughter back on track.
