I am a 2018 graduate of Messiah College, double majoring in Mathematics and Philosophy, and minoring in Economics. At Messiah, I took advanced Math courses like Algebraic Structures, Linear Algebra, and Real Analysis. I have found that my study of these advanced topics in Mathematics has enriched and anchored my understanding of more fundamental courses, including all levels of Algebra and Calculus. In addition to experience tutoring and teaching subject matter of secondary math, I am thoroughly experienced in both SAT and ACT Math. Along with highly competitive scores, I have helped many younger students prepare for these tests. Please do message me for any details regarding my experience in these tests or my general experience in tutoring.

I believe that tutoring should not be done according to a rule governed, formulaic method, but should rather follow a fluid process structured to the student's current needs and progress. This means that I am committed to finding a way to help students learn that does not just start with a specific goal in mind, but tracks a series of successive goals that may be subject to change according to the progress of the student. Following this method, I have seen students succeed in levels from junior high, to high school, to college. Please contact me with any questions you may have! I am usually open to meeting either in a public location (library, coffeeshop, etc.) or your home if you prefer. However, at this point I am holding mostly online tutoring sessions.

Very smart, knowledgeable, and patient tutor

I did 9 lessons with Jacob this past semester and all of them were fantastic. He saved my math grade I went from nearly failing a college level math course to passing with a B+. Something of the topics we went over were logic, truth tables, probability, counting principle, converting mayan and babylonian numerals to hindu arabic numerals, He is very smart and very patient he is without a doubt one of the best math tutors I've taken. I couldn't recommend him enough.

Wonderful disposition!

Great job with my daughters, made math seem fun and easy. I wish they had him earlier in their education! I heard them laughing and thinking, and he made corrections seem effortless.

Kind and patient tutor

Absolutely appreciate my son being tutored by Jacob. He is very thorough and parient. It helped my son tremendously to bring up his final grade in math, and with on line learning due the pandemic, Jacob’s teaching strategies have been very helpful!

Jacob is great!

My son got a lot out of his lesson with Jacob and we plan to continue with him twice a week until our son is caught up. Jacob explained things in a way our son could understand. Very happy
