About Jackson

I graduated from Duke University in 2014 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. During high school I graduated Valedictorian earned an 800 on the Math SAT and a 35 on the Math ACT. I also achieved a 780 on the Mathematics Level 2 SAT Subject Test and a 5 on both the AB and BC AP Calculus exams.

During high school and college I gained experience tutoring middle and high school students. My primary tutoring experience comes from helping students understand high school mathematics and prepare for the mathematics portion of the SAT and ACT. Students whom I have worked with have consistently shown improvement in their grades and test results.

I enjoy providing tutoring for students learning Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-calculus, and Calculus. I also help students prepare for the SAT, ACT, and AB/BC Calculus AP Exams.

I believe that the best teachers are able to inspire a genuine interest in their students. I try my best to make learning interesting, because it is much easier for motivated students to succeed. My approach in any tutoring session is to listen to the student, understand the gap in their understanding, and bridge that gap by presenting core concepts in a way that makes them simple.

I'm also a firm believer in the benefits of practice and repetition; once a student understands a concept, I provide lots of examples and practice problems to help reinforce this understanding.

Specific tutoring policies:

My ultimate goal in any tutoring session is to help the student achieve his goal, whether it is a specific score on a test or better understanding of material. I will not bill if the student or parent is not completely happy with my tutoring, and I will frequently request feedback to ensure that I am providing the best experience possible.

I am happy to travel to whatever location is convenient for the student.
