About Jay


Bio

Hi, I’m Jay! I graduated with distinction with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics. In college, I realized that I enjoyed working with others and acting as a mentor for students, so I spent my upperclassmen years serving as a teaching assistant for the introductory physics classes, as well as a peer mentor. In both positions I learned to be comfortable in the classroom working with students to help their understanding of the material and focus on areas where students required the most assistance....

Hi, I’m Jay! I graduated with distinction with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics. In college, I realized that I enjoyed working with others and acting as a mentor for students, so I spent my upperclassmen years serving as a teaching assistant for the introductory physics classes, as well as a peer mentor. In both positions I learned to be comfortable in the classroom working with students to help their understanding of the material and focus on areas where students required the most assistance. After graduating, I took on a full-time teaching position at my university where I’ve spent the past two years interacting with students and adjusting class material to best suit students, including converting an entirely in-person course to remote learning in response to COVID-19. I have substantial experience in teaching remotely, from holding office hours to teaching full-length laboratory sections, so I am quite comfortable interacting with students remotely and responding to the many challenges students face with remote learning.

When interacting with students, I try to emulate the teaching style of my favorite, and consequently most effective professors and teaching assistants from college by being understanding, supportive, and organized. I work well with either individual or small groups of students so I can focus on the needs of my student(s) and devote as much time as possible to the areas where they require help. I specialize in math, from pre-algebra through calculus, and in introductory level physics, particularly mechanics.

As a physics major during college and a peer mentor and teaching assistant for introductory level physics classes, I have experience working with and teaching math from algebra all the way through calculus. I also scored very well on the SAT and ACT math sections (800 and 35 respectively), so I can assist with standardized test prep as well.

I have a very flexible schedule so I am available to meet at most times during the weekdays and will provide quick responses to any question
