About Jeremy


Bio

I am a recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, with a BA in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. I first fell in love with helping people learn at the age of 17, when I was hired by a small private school to teach writing, SAT and college prep.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, with a BA in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. I first fell in love with helping people learn at the age of 17, when I was hired by a small private school to teach writing, SAT and college prep.

At UPenn I began to specialize more in math though I continued to help local high school students in writing, SAT preparation, and college counseling. I also formally tutored my fellow-students in Calculus (single-variable) and Physics. Fall of my junior year, I began working as a teacher's assistant - grading, devising review sessions, holding office hours, and helping my employer implement active learning sessions in-class.

After graduation I began to contract as an independent tutor, beginning on the Varsity Tutors' platform where I worked for just under a year. Fall of 2018 I decided to switch entirely to Wyzant's platform for its higher quality of online sessions, greater independence, and flexibility.

I focus on Calculus, SAT math prep, and high school math.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the foundation of mathematics, and I find myself teaching it to all my students. I am currently tutoring two students in algebra, and I would love to work with some more!
Calculus,

Calculus

I have been tutoring students in Calculus for a little over 4 years. I have worked with hundreds of students in one-on-one and class-room settings. As a teacher's assistant at the University of Pennsylvania I also graded homework and exams and helped design review sessions to help students succeed. In the past year I have begun working as an independent tutor, particularly with college and high school students taking AP Calculus AB/BC. I know Calculus inside out, know where students struggle, and know how to make those struggles go away.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have tutored Pre-calculus extensively, both in helping Calculus students who forgot necessary concepts and in helping students in the greater Raleigh area in Math 1-3. I know the content well, and I know how it will be used in future classes as a student progresses.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I scored an 800 on the SAT math section (770 on reading/writing). I work with students in SAT math every week and have tutored SAT on and off since 2012. We use College Board practice tests and math drilling techniques - and we get results. I like to work with students intensively for 6-8 weeks leading up to the exam, but also tutor in longer/shorter time-frames.

Knowledgeable and thorough

Jeremy helped Garrett understand topics he was rusty on throughout the year. Concepts he didn’t have a good grasp on. He explained things more clearly so that Garrett was able to follow through.

Lori, 3 lessons with Jeremy

Knowledgeable and super smart

My daughter learned a lot in her hour doing SAT Math prep with Jeremy. He had clear recommendations on how to prepare, then dove into doing problems. She had a few “aha” moments, which is always good. Great tutor, highly recommend him!

Reena, 1 lesson with Jeremy

Professional and Dedicated SAT Tutor

Jeremy came to tutor our daughter 2 times this summer for math, for the two SAT exams that she took. He is very knowledgeable, professional and dedicated. He gave her many test preparation and exam taking tips, along with being patient, teaching and encouraging her. We saw a 60 point increase in her math score for the second attempt. She is extremely happy and we would recommend Jeremy without any hesitation.

Sreeni, 12 lessons with Jeremy

Very patient and helpful

Jeremy has been doing a great job with my daughter on the math portion of the SAT. Highly recommend him. The online platform is super convenient and easy to use.

Melissa, 6 lessons with Jeremy

Professional and knowledgeable

Jeremy has tutoring (H)Algebra for our 10th grade son multiple sessions. Jeremy has great tutoring skill and very knowledgeable in his field. He first goes over the study with our son, points out best way for finding solutions. Our son maintains good score in this subject. We are happy to have Jeremy as our son's Math tutor and we shall work with him more. You might want to contact Jeremy if you are looking for a great tutor in Math.

Knowledgeable and patient

Not only was Jeremy knowledgeable and patient but he was familiar with the terminology that is used in today's teaching of mathematics. This helped Ashley to better understand the material.

Dawn, 14 lessons with Jeremy

Great teacher!

Fortunately for Jeremy and I, the SAT calculator section went MUCH smoother for me! I’m happy and excited to learn math much more easier than expected and Jeremy, again, was AWESOME!!

Manie, 9 lessons with Jeremy

Great tutor

When I initially started with Jeremy, I had a 670 on the Math portion of the SAT and was utterly stuck there. However, after only about 3 or 4 lessons, my score jumped to about 710. After working hard for several weeks, I was averaging about 770 on the practice tests, which translated into a 750 on the actual SAT. This leap of 80 points was very satisfying and no doubt a testimony to Jeremy's patience and good teaching skills. Jeremy is very good at helping locate your weaknesses and helping you understand what you're doing incorrectly without being condescending, something I was very grateful for. He is also very flexible with your schedule; I was an active varsity athlete during our study sessions, and he was able to find a time that worked for both of us. All in all, this was a pleasant experience and I am very grateful to have had such a capable tutor to assist in getting me to the score I wanted. Thank you, Jeremy!

Brad, 14 lessons with Jeremy

Very patient with me :)

I have a terrible time with algebra, it takes me a few tries for something to get throughly into my head. Jeremy is very patient and walks through things I don’t understand as much as I need him to. He is helping me to use simpler ways of doing things that way they stick in my head better, great teacher.

Allison, 3 lessons with Jeremy

Excellent tutor

Jeremy has been working with my son prepping him for SAT Math. He is punctual, professional and a great tutor. He assigns a practice test before each session and goes over/reteaches the material that my son needs help with. I highly recommend Jeremy!
