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. Overpreparing students for exams is the #1 goal!

Econometrics

I have worked with several students in Econometrics and the main focus has always been implementing the models in a statistical programming language such as R or SAS. We also spend time understanding the complex theory behind the models that are introduced in these courses. With my significant experience with predictive modeling, I will ensure that you get the most out of your econometrics courses.

knowledgeable tutor!

Jake has been extremely helpful and patient with the development of our Tableau dashboard. He has helped with tips and tricks and creating a visually appealing dashboard that conforms to our corporate standards.

Pete, 3 lessons with Jacob

Great tutor.

Jacob was great, really patient and helpful. He took the time to help me figure out the issue, and showed he wanted to me to learn the concept before ending the lesson.

Joshua, 1 lesson with Jacob

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

We worked on R and analytics modeling (kknn, ksvm, clustering). It was very helpful. He identified my learning style, and we worked through areas that I needed help in a way that matched that style.

Knowledgeable and Thorough Tutor

Jacob has been tutoring me over the past year and has always been so helpful & consistent. Because of his help, I've been getting great grades in my programming courses. He's extremely thorough and has extended sessions at times to double check our work. I highly recommend him!

By far the BEST tutor I have ever had

Jacob helped me with literally every class I took and is incredibly knowledgable about R and calculus. He is also super determined and will learn to be able to teach you, which is HUGE.

Alejandra, 13 lessons with Jacob

Tableau specialist

Jacob is knowledgeable and great to work with. We've ha a tutoring sessions at 9 at night and 6 in the morning to accommodate my work schedule. He's always prepared and patient enough to let me think through problems. I appreciate that he gives me homework that we can work though together.

Jacob was very helpful

Patient and very knowledgeable about R. He was able to answer all of my questions and help guide me on my assignment. Why do I have 160 characters...............................

Roberto, 1 lesson with Jacob

Awesome tutor couldn't recommend more for R and Statistics help

Jacob helped walk me through a homework assignment and provided really useful insights into R syntax and the fundamentals of statistics. It was extremely helpful and really was great at supplementing what we've been going over in class. I could not recommend Jacob highly enough and will definitely be going back to him throughout the semester

Rob, 1 lesson with Jacob

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.
