About Jacob


Bio

I have had a passion for Math as long as I have been in school. In high school, I discovered a passion for teaching Math. This started out my senior year with me tutoring junior high students, and developed into a role last summer where I taught Geometry and Trigonometry to future first generation college students in Austin, Texas.

I have had a passion for Math as long as I have been in school. In high school, I discovered a passion for teaching Math. This started out my senior year with me tutoring junior high students, and developed into a role last summer where I taught Geometry and Trigonometry to future first generation college students in Austin, Texas.
In 2014 I began undergraduate studies at Messiah College, double majoring in Mathematics and Philosophy, and minoring in Economics. At Messiah, I've taken advanced Math courses like Algebraic Structures, Linear Algebra, and Real Analysis. I have found that my study of these advanced topics in Mathematics have 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 informally helped 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 my junior high tutoring as well as my time teaching last summer.
Please contact me with any questions you may have! I am open to meeting either in a public location (library, coffeeshop, etc.) or your home if you prefer.

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!

Paula, 8 lessons with Jacob

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

Paula, 8 lessons with Jacob

Great Tutor

He was extremely patient and always went out of his way to help me. He continued to work on the problems that I had after our session to make sure I got the correct answers. Great guy overall.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Jacob did an outstanding job explaining Trig concepts to my son. He was patient and did not rush him but thorough and made certain he understood before moving on to next. My son does not ask a lot of questions so it's sometime difficult for a tutor to know with certainty if he truly understood it or not but Jacob asked the right questions to ensure the concept was internalized. I would recommend him to anyone and definitely plan on using him in the future.

Jacob taught me regression. I was so lost. He helped me learn what I needed to complete my assignment. He was super awesome and he is officially my best friend now. Well at least, my best tutor friend.
