Bio

I am an Electrical Engineer graduate from the University of Akron currently working as a network administrator. I have been tutoring middle school, high school and college students in math ranging from: basic math to Calculus III. I also taught a pre-engineering class for high school students for the Upward Bound program at the University of Akron from 2001 - 2005. I’m currently teaching a financial literacy class to 6th and 7th grade students at Emanuel Christian Academy and I am a “Seven...

I am an Electrical Engineer graduate from the University of Akron currently working as a network administrator. I have been tutoring middle school, high school and college students in math ranging from: basic math to Calculus III. I also taught a pre-engineering class for high school students for the Upward Bound program at the University of Akron from 2001 - 2005. I’m currently teaching a financial literacy class to 6th and 7th grade students at Emanuel Christian Academy and I am a “Seven Habits of Highly effective People” facilitator for adults and teens.

I instinctively observe each student’s learning style, motivation and the way they think to help maximize the student’s strengths while improving upon their weaknesses.

Cancellation Policy:
I understand that things come up. However, I have many students that I am working with and need 24 hour advanced notice for a canceled lesson; otherwise, you will be charged my rate. Cancellations must be done via text, and or phone. DO NOT SEND AN EMAIL to cancel a lesson, because I may be working with students and do not have access to the internet. Text is the number one choice, voicemail is second.

I currently work at an insurance company in the IT department (12 years) as a network administrator. I work on servers as well as PC (hardware and software). This experience has allowed me to master general computer building and repairing computers, optimizing hard drive storage, removing spyware, malware and viruses, teaching Microsoft office, correcting internet connection issues, email, etc. In today's fast-paced society, it is critical for people to gain skills in general computer usage. The internet is an incredible source of information - information that may have once been inaccessible by some people. I love to help people take advantage of the resources provided to us by computers.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have helped students understand every math subject from prealgebra through algebra, discrete math, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus. Often, when a student is having challenges in math, it is because one or two concepts slipped by, or weren’t taught properly. This makes the next concept more difficult, and pretty soon a student can be overwhelmed. I will quickly help you get caught up, and then help you get ahead, so that your math classes will be like review sessions instead of just going through the motion.

Physics

I am tutoring several students in high school and college physics. Physics can be difficult to understand, and it is easy for a student to fall behind. Once a student falls behind, it can be virtually impossible to catch up without help. If you are falling behind, I can help you catch up and learn what you need to know to pass; if you are willing to do some work, I can help you excel.

I would recommend this tutor

Jarrett tutored both of my kids for the ACT. He helped to inspire confidence in them to do well on the ACT. Both of my kids improved their ACT scores. His test taking and study strategies were very valuable. My kids loved their sessions with him, and asked me for more tutoring time with him, but since he is $50 an hour, I had to limit the number of sessions that I could do. Well worth the $50 per hour, though.

Karen, 4 lessons with Jerrett

Knowledgeable and very patient.

I appreciated his patience in helping understand areas where I am struggling currently. He taught the material very well and related the material in a very understandable way.

HSPT

Jarrett is helping my daughter prepare for her Highschool Placement Test. I really appreciate his patience and his flexibility when it comes to focusing on my daughter, ever-changing math requirements. He really is a Godsend.

Monica, 61 lessons with Jerrett

Very Patient, knowledgeable and very likable.

Jerrett is currently tutoring my daughter who is a senior and they are studying for the ACT. She was very impressed and really feels he can help her and she is excited for the next lesson.

Audra, 4 lessons with Jerrett

Adaptable and Patient

He is very adaptable to teaching the different ages of my children. He can tutor them both in one evening which is very convenient. He also is knowledgeable in other subjects such as science and it is nice to have one tutor for multiple areas of struggle. He is successful with my children because he is patient and genuinely wants them to achieve success. He also will try hard to be available even if sometimes we have to meet for online sessions. A great all around tutor!

Awesome Tutor

Jerret helped me prepare for the algebra 1 air test and did an exceptional job. He was very clear when explaining problems and always seemed happy to answer questions!

Joanna, 2 lessons with Jerrett

Knowledgeable and patient technology tutor.

Jerrett was very patient. He was able to answer my sons technology questions and help guide him in reaching his goals.

Amanda, 1 lesson with Jerrett

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jerrett was very knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining mathematical functions to my son. My son left his first session feeling more confident and assured as a result. Thank you.

Kathy, 8 lessons with Jerrett

Very flexible with schedule and instruction

Jerrett is very flexible and is able to help my daughter in chemistry or trig when she is confused. He also helped her review for SATs. I am not sure what we would have done without Jerrett's help this year.
