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 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.

Very helpful!

My son said Jerrett was very helpful, after only just one session. He feels so much better about his chances for a good grade in calculus, knowing he can see Jerrett for help.

Leslie, 8 lessons with Jerrett

super diligent

Jerrett always takes the time to update us on what was covered. My granddaughter has already an improved school esteem. I am so glad we found him.

Laurie, 5 lessons with Jerrett

Very patient

Helped without judging. He was prompt, polite and show a genuine interest in making sure the student learned. Then followed up with extra practice sheets to complete before the next session and no pressure to continue

Katrina, 25 lessons with Jerrett

Great tutor

My son wanted to jump ahead and learn pre-calculus, every lesson with Jarret has been great. He learns so much! He’s very professional and it’s Great to have him just come to the house, so convenient!

Amy, 11 lessons with Jerrett

A very good tutor

My daughter has not got back the results of her ACT that she was being tutored for, but she did feel much more confident than when she had take the test previously. She worked well with Jerrett.

Stephanie, 7 lessons with Jerrett

Knowledgeable and helpful

Jerrett tutored me for the first time in Algebra II. I feel like he has a good approach that will help me learn what I’m missing in class.

James, 52 lessons with Jerrett

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Jerrett has been working with my 7th grader since this summer, and continues to work with him to review his math lessons each week. The difference in the start of this school year after having Jerrett work with him over the summer has been wonderful! He brings not only the knowledge of what he worked on over the summer, but more confidence in his abilities. We can't recommend Jerrett enough!

Brooke, 43 lessons with Jerrett

Great Teacher!

Jerret really helped me to understand problems which I thought to be difficult and further helped me to break down everything in order to make it even easier. I look forward to the next session!

Davorise , 2 lessons with Jerrett

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.
