About Jason

I have a both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Environmental Science, which is the umbrella subject for ecology. I am very passionate about the area, as well as science in general. I have a vast knowledge of ecological science, in particularly as it relates to (but not limited to) soil, water, and plant growth.

I tutored Spanish for 4 years in college, where I became a certified tutor of the subject. I still speak Spanish everyday. I have visited North Spain, where I had to speak Spanish 24/7. I learned Spanish in one year--I can teach you the best way to do that.

As a student, I was educated in three different countries; Jamaica, the UK, and the US. This has very much influenced the way I approach learning and teaching, in that, my worldview and experiences are very broad. I approach subjects from various points of view.

I was a tutor of Spanish all four years in College, which helped me tighten my tutoring skills. I also find that an English speaking person tutoring Spanish can be better than a Spanish speaking person because I already understand how you think and the mistakes you'll make.

I learnt Spanish in one year, from various friends, just by talking to them, and visiting their countries. I think the more you speak Spanish, the easier it becomes to learn.

As well as Spanish, I have a bachelor's and master's degree in Environmental Science. An area i'm very passionate about- especially as it related to Ecology.

I am also a big soccer enthusiast; a huge Manchester United fan. I played in college and have a vast knowledge of the sports. I was the captain of the team I played for in the UK.

I have played soccer all my life, literally. I was the captain of a soccer team in the UK for two years. And I watch about 10 games/ week and follow all the major leagues around the world.
soccer is my biggest hobby.

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.

Soccer

I was captain of my soccer team in the UK between 2003 and 2005.

I have coached at the basic level.

I was a member of the Westminster College soccer team in college.

I have vast knowledge about all the major leagues in the world. I watch 10-15 games a week.

Spanish

I've tutored Spanish for many years; I have a certification for tutoring Spanish at Westminster College. I currently tutor Mizzou students and high schoolers in the area.

Track & Field

As a Jamaican national, track and field is in my blood. I ran the 200M in high school in Jamaica.

I follow all the records and performers very closely through the years.

I am very familiar with all the rules of the sport, as it is a requirement in the Jamaican education curriculum.
