University of Maryland (Mathematics and Econ)
I earned a Bachelors degree and Masters degree in Mathematics and have been working as a math instructor at a college in New York since I was 24. Reviews from previous students can be found by searching Jason Kapsack on the website Rate My Professor.
I have been a private tutor for several years and helped many students learn to love math and reach new heights. I have worked with students from all the top local high schools, including Bronx Science, Stuyvesant, Trinity, Friends, and Dalton. I also love to work at the college-level and have experience working one-on-one with NYU, Fordham and CUNY students as well as long distance with UPenn and MIT students. Furthermore, I help with standardized test preparation. Many of the the SAT/ACT or GRE students I have worked with have gone on to study at top colleges, including Wharton at UPenn.
I will travel to your location or over the phone and video tutoring is available if requested. References from previous students or parents are also available upon request. Rates are negotiable depending on subject level and amount of hours scheduled. Discounts for group sessions.

Jason is not only knowledgeable, he is detailed in his review after each session. He is also very understanding that our son is under a lot of stress because of the high homework load and helps our son study and review for the math test. He is also very considerate and sent a reminder to our son to work the problems slowly so as not to make silly mistakes. He really helps our son regain the confidence he had lost last semester when he had a tough Precalculus teacher. Tutors like Jason are not easy to find and we are thankful for finding him to help our son.
Jason tutored me in Calculus and he was just amazing. He is very intelligent and patient. He explains everything in detail and explaisn to you why you maybe stuck or confused. I think I learned more from him in our 2 hour session than I did all semester. I highly recommend him if you're struggling in a subject area. This guy knows 100% what he's doing. Thanks to him I passed my Calc final.
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.
I believe I am qualified to tutor differential equations because as an undergraduate math major at the University of Maryland I completed MATH246, which was a rigorous course for math and engineering majors in Differential Equations. In addition, as a graduate student working towards my Master's in Mathematics, I am currently finishing up a year long-sequence in Partial Differential Equations, which is a rigorous specific topic within Differential Equations and builds upon all of the material from Differential Equations. I already received an A in the first half of this graduate course.
