About Jason

I Graduated from Muhlenberg College with a BS in Chemistry and recently returned to Muhlenberg College and successfully completed course work to become a certified teacher in Chemistry in December, 2010. I have passed the Chemistry and the Physical Sciences Praxis exams with excellence, scoring in the top 15% of all those who have taken the exams. Score reports are available upon request. Since I am working to be a teacher, I have all my clearances in order (also available upon request) and updated annually, most recently in August, 2010. References are also available from the Academic Resource Center at Muhlenberg College where I have tutored Organic and General Chemistry students for the college as recently as Spring of 2010.

I have an exceptionally strong grasp on chemistry and biology content areas, but I also have extensive experience with human anatomy and physiology due to nearly 12 years as a paramedic. I have also instructed EMT and Paramedic for the Lehigh Valley Hospital for the past 2 years.

When I begin tutoring a new student, I assess their learning styles so that I can better meet the needs of each individual student. This allows the student the best opportunity to access the content and be able to demonstrate knowledge. I also work to build confidence in the material because sometimes the problem lies not in understanding the material; but in test taking anxiety, diminished self confidence, or a simple inability to connect with the material in a meaningful way. I look to flesh out these areas first and throughout the course of study. If you need assistance in any of these areas, I look forward to the opportunity to help you succeed.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken and received a 13/15 (99%ile) in the biological section of the MCAT which is approximately 25% Organic Chemistry. I have taken Organic Chemistry in Muhlenberg College for my major in Chemistry as an undergraduate and again as a review for my 2011 completion of my teaching certificate in Chemistry as well as my 2013 sitting for the MCAT. I have tutored organic chemistry through Muhlenberg College's Academic Support Services office in Organic (and General) Chemistry, including holding group tutoring lessons as recently as 2011.

Great Tutor! Highly Recommend! — We were impressed with Jason from the moment we met him. Jason was very polite, on time, and was able to connect with my high school son in a way that helped him grasp the concepts of chemistry. I wouldn't hesitate to call Jason in the future and highly recommend him! ...
