About Jason

I received my Bachelor's in Mathematics with minors in Physics and Music in June 2012 from Canisius College. I also just received my Master's in Mathematics from the University of Connecticut. I have teaching and/or tutoring experience in most levels of math (except for statistics and any financial or actuarial math course) and some physics courses (although it has been quite a while since I've looked at a physics course).

I worked in the Canisius Tutoring Center as a math tutor for 4 years, and I was teaching assistant in the Math Department at UConn for 3 years. While at UConn, I taught classes in Calculus I, Calculus II, and Differential Equations. I am now in the process of looking for teaching jobs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

I just recently spent a semester teaching a class in Differential Equations. A lot of my students were happy with having me as their teaching assistant, and as a result a lot of them performed well in the course. It was a lot of fun, and having not seen the subject for a few years, I am refreshed in the subject now and am much better equipped to tutor Differential Equations than I was in the past.

Discrete Math

After taking Bridge to Abstract Math / Logic, Set Theory, and Proofs at Canisius, Discrete Math is the same. I've tutored students in both courses and the material that is covered in Discrete Math is the same as the basic ideas of the Logic, Set Theory, and Proofs course that I took.

Finite Math

I tutored students frequently in Finite Mathematics at the Canisius College Tutoring Center while I was there. It was a while ago, but I still remember must of it. It's not much different than some of the other math courses that I've helped students with.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra was one of my favorite Math courses that I've taken, and I'd be happy to tutor students in this subject. It is one of the more useful courses for Math and different Sciences. The ideas from Linear Algebra and matrix arithmetic also appear in other courses such as Numerical Analysis, Abstract Algebra, Differential Equations, and Physics.

Logic

I have experience with Math logic in proofs, as well as Boolean logic that occurs in Electronics and circuitry. I'm not too strong in Philosophy logic, but since proofs show up in a lot of different Math courses, I've gotten use to using Logic, and I'd be happy to tutor it.

MATLAB

I started using MATLAB in Classical Mechanics, and though I didn't understand how to use it then, I've recently gotten more experience with it in Numerical Analysis. After using MATLAB for Numerical Analysis for a semester, I am familiar with using it and creating m-files for functions, loops, and a few other basics.

Outstanding in all aspects!!! — Jason is an outstanding tutor and has been a huge help for my daughter. My daughter is in the 11th grade and has a Calculus teacher who just terrible. We had to seek help for her outside her high school and I am glad we found this website and Jason. Her grades have dramatically improved since we started with him. He is extremely kind, friendly, and patient. He is very timely with email replies as ...
