About Jason

I am a successful graduate student studying chemistry and biochemistry with a strong concentration in the area of fluorescence and how to utilize such phenomena. Throughout my graduate studies, I have enjoyed the wonderful opportunity of teaching instructional laboratories for both general and organic chemistry. Through this experience, including tutoring lessons and laboratory demonstrations, I have found teaching students extremely rewarding. I strongly feel that if an individual is willing to learn and seeks help, we have an obligation to assist them in reaching their educational expectations.

TUTOR POLICIES
---------------------------------------------------------

I. SCHEDULING
1. Students are advised to schedule a session at least 24 hours in advance.

2. Research times are usually 8 AM to 8 PM Monday to Thursday, and 8 AM to 5 PM Friday, so the tutor will usually be unavailable during those times. However, students are welcomed to ask about the "tail end hours" of 6 PM to 8 PM Monday to Thursday for scheduling reasons, as there may be availability then.

3. Therefore, the best times to schedule sessions are evenings during the week, and on the weekends.

4. Scheduling will be done in blocks. That is, the student and tutor will work out the desired start time, and the estimated finish time. For planning concerns, the estimated finish time should be a little later than anticipated, in case extra time is needed.

II. DELAYED SESSIONS
1. If a student is late, the session will begin from the agreed upon start time, not from the time the student arrives. The student can then proceed with the session until the agreed upon finish time. If there are no other appointments scheduled, the student may request additional time with the tutor until all topics have been covered.

2. If the tutor is late, the session will begin from the time the student and tutor are able to start. A discount equal to the time the tutor was late will be given to the student. The student can then proceed with the session until the agreed upon finish time. If there are no other appointments scheduled, the student may request additional time with the tutor until all topics have been covered.

III. CANCELLATIONS AND MISSED SESSIONS
1. Students are encouraged to cancel appointments with the tutor as soon as they find out of their inability to attend the scheduled appointment. Fees for cancelled sessions are (15-minute minimum in each case):
a. 0 percent of the total scheduled time for appointments cancelled the day before the appointment, or earlier;
b. 10 percent of the total scheduled time for appointments cancelled the day of the appointment, but more than 3 hours in advance, and;
c. 25 percent of the total scheduled time for appointments cancelled less than 3 hours in advance.

2. A missed session is one where the tutor arrives at the designated meeting place at the scheduled time, and the student does not attend the session without previously canceling the appointment.
a. The tutor will wait for the student up to 30 minutes; after this time, the session is considered missed if the student does not attend or contact the tutor.
b. Students who contact the tutor within the first 30 minutes of waiting to notify the tutor of lateness may still proceed with the session if desired. The student will be charged twice the above-mentioned rules for lateness. See section III.1.
c. Students who contact the tutor within the first 30 minutes of waiting to cancel the appointment will be charged 50 percent of the total scheduled time.
d. Students who miss appointments will be charged for 75 percent of the total scheduled time.

3. Students who have built an honest and positive rapport with the tutor will experience a decrease in or waiver of late or missed session fees at the discretion of the tutor.

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.

Very patient, thorough and flexible with his schedule

My daughter was struggling with high school chemistry and Jason has gone above and beyond to make sure she understands the concept before they go on to the next one. He does outside research and comes to each lesson prepared with problems to solve and solutions to show her how to figure things out. He explains the material to her so she can understand it and apply it to her work. I would definitel
