Bio

Hello, I'm Jason! Over the last 10 years, I have worked with students in all grades K-12, either through tutoring or as a classroom teacher. I have been a fully certified, highly effective teacher for the past 10 years. Teaching for me is a calling. I love helping my students reach their potential and go beyond what they currently think they are capable of.

Hello, I'm Jason! Over the last 10 years, I have worked with students in all grades K-12, either through tutoring or as a classroom teacher. I have been a fully certified, highly effective teacher for the past 10 years. Teaching for me is a calling. I love helping my students reach their potential and go beyond what they currently think they are capable of.

In addition to being a classroom teacher, I have been working with a local, private test prep company for the past 4 years and have over 1,000 hours of tutoring experience. The SAT and ACT are not IQ tests and are not simply a measure of how smart you are. You can make significant gains in your scores if you understand these tests, know what strategies to use, and target your specific content areas of need. I love working with students to explain concepts in a way that they can understand, give them steps they can take to reach their goals, and help them to arrive at that "aha" moment for themselves.

For students that are not sure whether to take the SAT or ACT, I provide consultations to help students decide which test is the right fit. I am also willing to do consultations (1 or a few sessions) for students to help get them started on SAT or ACT prep that they can do primarily on their own. This would be for students that are already close to achieving their score goals or are highly motivated to self-study and just need some direction to get started.

I am excited to begin tutoring you or your child! While I specialize in ACT and SAT prep, I also do prep for SSAT, ISEE, and HSPT as well as subject tutoring for grades K-12. Based on your needs, we can do anywhere from 1 or a few sessions to regular on-going sessions for several months. We'll work together to figure out a plan that best serves you! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or to schedule your first appointment.

Proficient and Patient

Jason helped my son feel more confident in his math class from the 1st lesson. They both recognize the work that needs to be done to get him up to speed and I feel, with his help, my son is more willing to put in the time and work on the class.

Knowledgable ,friendly ,patient tutor.

very helpful with strategic test taking which is very important ! My son is taking the SSAT for the first time in 8th grade and Jason is not only content knowledgable but is helping with HOW to take the test !

Leslie, 8 lessons with Jason

Knocked it out of the park

We had our first session with Jason. My daughter is in the fifth grade and retaking the ISEE test in two months. She had tutoring prior to her first test and after this first session with Jason her response to me was “I should’ve had him for the first test, this was amazing I already feel like I’ve learned so much from one session“. As you can imagine this left me as a mother feeling wonderful and extremely hopeful. We are so happy we found Jason through this app.

Genevieve, 16 lessons with Jason

Made my daughter very comfortable

Jason was so nice, relaxed and laid back. He reviewed materials well with her and gave her some test taking tips which she liked. She felt really comfortable and enjoyed the session. She has more scheduled 😊. And he messaged me with a test she could to to prepare and a test book we could use. So she was ready for the visit. I appreciated the pre-lesson preparation.

Michelle, 3 lessons with Jason

great motivator and teacher

Jason found just the right balance of motivating my daughter and challenging her to learn, while reducing her anxiety about the SAT math. She had a lot of catching up to do, and wasn't super motivated, but Jason met her where she was and kept her moving forward with clear explanations, a sense of humor, and assignments specific to what she needed to learn. He also worked with her busy schedule to help her right up until the test. She improved a lot, learned some important test-taking strategies, and felt confident going into the test yesterday--and felt good coming out! Couldn't have asked for a better tutor, and we're both grateful we found Jason.

Heather, 12 lessons with Jason

Great teacher!

My girls are learning a lot with Jason after each session. He explains the concepts well and reviews questions they have. Look forward to seeing their progress!

Lisa , 22 lessons with Jason

Amazing Tutor!

Jason helped my son improve his ACT scores this summer! My son connected with Jason and loved working with him . He is now working with him on his SAT prep. I highly recommend Jason!

Peggy, 15 lessons with Jason

Knowledgeable and Patient

Jason taught my daughter very good strategies on how to be able to eliminate wrong answers on SAT reading questions and be able to narrow it down to two possible correct answers. He is patience and very knowledgeable.

Evelyn, 7 lessons with Jason

Knowledgeable about test prep

My son's first session with Jason was great. It was an overview session of the HSPT. Jason covered all the sections at a high level and walked through examples and weaved in strategies. It gave my son a good introduction and feel for the test.
