I received both my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Economics and my Master's Degree in Mathematics from Eastern Michigan University in 2012 and 2014, respectively. I graduated as one of the top graduate students in my program and received numerous awards including outstanding tutor, outstanding graduate student, and outstanding graduate assistant.

I have a total of 10+ years teaching and tutoring students in Math and Statistics. I primarily focus on tutoring college students, but occasionally tutor high school students in an advanced subject such as Calculus or Statistics. While I am comfortable tutoring almost any subject in Math, I specialize in tutoring Probability and Statistics courses which cover topics such as descriptive statistics, probability, hypothesis testing, regression, and measure theory (for advanced students). In addition, most statistics courses require you to do some programming using either R, Python, Tableau, Minitab, SPSS, SAS, and/or Excel. I have both academic and professional experience with all of these programs. I have experience tutoring one on one, in group sessions, or in a classroom setting. This includes online and in person.

What sets me apart from most tutors is that I am able to modify my method of tutoring depending on the student. This is important since different students learn differently. I typically provide many examples for the student so that they can review their notes after the session. In addition to providing examples, I tend to ensure that the examples provided are slightly more complicated than what they may expect on the exam. In the past I have created exams and quizzes for students to take during our sessions so that they can practice taking exams under pressure. I do this for both teaching and tutoring. In group tutoring sessions I typically will use a whiteboard and have the students help me think through the solution to the problem rather than just writing out all of the steps. There is no better feeling then walking into an exam feeling over pr

Very knowledgeable! 10/10 would recommend

I definitely recommend Jacob as a tutor. He helped me with statistics and data analytics with excel. Jacob easily explains the most difficult topics in a way that is very simple to understand. I like how he was able to connect real life examples of statistics to complicated concepts and theorems.

Expert level on R!

Jacob is on an expert level, yet able to simplify so I can understand the material. This is a big lesson that will take multiple sessions to complete. So far, so good! I Will review again after another session.

Extremely knowledgeable...great problem solver!

Jacob was very friendly, and also fantastic with organization of data, and well prepared to teach data analysis, and statistical analysis using R-Studio. He is also willing to give a project extra time and effort - especially when major trouble shooting is necessary.
