About Jake

My name is Jake and I'm a senior Biology major at Southern Nazarene University. I'm from The Woodlands, TX, which is just NW of the great city of Houston. I have loved school for as long as I can remember. My favorite subjects have always been math and science in particular, but I certainly have an appreciation for all subjects. While in high school, I was always willing to tutor any friends and classmates who needed or wanted my help. I realize that not everyone has the same passion as I do for school, and it is one of my missions to try and instill some of that passion in each individual that I tutor.

In addition to school, I really love sports. I grew up playing every sport that was available to me including basketball, football, baseball, soccer, and even rugby at one point. I played basketball throughout high school, and was the varsity team captain both my junior and senior years. I enjoy sports because I think that they are an incredible way for people of very different circumstances and cultures to connect.

My goals for tutoring are fairly basic. My biggest desire is obviously for a student to understand the material that he or she is seeking help with. In addition to that, I would love to be able to instill a small passion for the subject matter that the student is seeking help for. From past experience, the times that I did not perform well in a class was mostly because I did not enjoy it. I believe that enjoying or understanding the practicality of subject is half of the battle of performing well.

My rate is $40/hour, with the following days and hours available:
Monday: 7am-9am & 2pm-9pm
Tuesday: 7am-9am & 12pm-9pm
Wednesday: 7am-9am & 2pm-9pm
Thursday: 7am-9am & 12pm-2pm & 5pm-9pm
Friday: 7am-9am & 12:30pm-6pm
Weekends: Some Availability

These are typically the concrete times. If there is a time that you would like to schedule tutoring that is not in these time slots, contact me and we can try to figure something out.

Biology is my favorite subject. It was the major that I chose in college because I loved it. I have taken biology courses from the most basic level to the most advanced level.

I am very patient. I know that spelling doesn't always come easy, nor do I expect it to. I am a believer in taking the time to teach phonics that will set up a student to be a successful speller for the rest of their lives.

Basketball is something that I have done and loved since I was eight years old. Both my brother and I have played our entire lives. I was a Varsity starter and captain my junior and senior years of high school where the enrollment is near 4,000 students. I have played with and against current college athletes around the nation, I know the work ethic that it takes to be successful.

If you are on the fence about reaching out for help in any of my specialties or in any other area of your life, please feel free to contact me. I would love nothing more than to not only help you out in an area where you're struggling, but to also give you the confidence in yourself that it takes to set yourself up for success.

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.

Basketball

I have played since I was 8 years old, this includes 2 year starting and being the captain of the high school varsity team. I have coached two seasons of summer basketball for age ten and under. I have also given lessons in the past for high school aged students.
