About Jason


Bio

The last time I taught students it was at the undergraduate level, in a Biological Psychology class of about 40 students at the University of California, San Diego, when I was working on my Bachelor's. I made my way through UCSD, went on to earn a Criminal Justice Master's from the University of Cincinnati, and then to Portland State University, where I earned a graduate certificate in Business Intelligence and Analytics.

The last time I taught students it was at the undergraduate level, in a Biological Psychology class of about 40 students at the University of California, San Diego, when I was working on my Bachelor's. I made my way through UCSD, went on to earn a Criminal Justice Master's from the University of Cincinnati, and then to Portland State University, where I earned a graduate certificate in Business Intelligence and Analytics.

Since then, I have been working as a Business Professional, in the eCommerce industry. I have mastered the use of MS Excel, occasionally create VBA macros, and have used Python to create Pivot tables in Excel, extracting the Regression coefficient to rank product lines at my company, and to forecast future values, which would inform Purchasing efforts.

In addition to using MS Excel in an academic setting at Portland State University, I have used it on an everyday basis from 2015 to today, on a professional basis. I like to challenge myself and undertake difficult applications in Excel just to see if I can do it. Once I know that I can, I sell my ability on my boss, and the procedure becomes another daily task.

I have motored through Mathematics courses all the way up to Linear Algebra, a full year of Calculus, and Ordinary Differential Equations. Although I could conceivably tutor a higher level of Math, I am most confident in Algebra I, at least for now. Plus, I use Algebra I on the job, and can emphasize the practicality of the subject with real life examples.

My alma mater, the University of California, San Diego, is a top-tier research institution, with a top-ranked Psychology Department. I got through that curriculum, just fine, and did, in fact teach Psychology to college students, at one point in time. Also, at UCSD, I did a Research Assistantship with Dr. Robert Epstein, who had been a Research Assistant to Eminent Behaviorist, BF Skinner in Boston.

Great tutor

Business math and Excel. He was a great help, he was very patient and that's saying a lot. I am so bad at math but he walked me through it, made me think. He didn't just give up the answer. I would hire him again.
