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 9 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 9 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.

His help, guidance, and encouragement were invaluable

Jason tutored my daughter for approximately 10 weeks leading up to the SATs. He was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for somebody who could provide advice on which test to take (ACT or SAT) and help with both math and English. Jason did it all. He started by having her take two practice tests – one SAT and one ACT. They then discussed her results on each, and decided which would be better for her. From that point on, each week they worked for approximately one hour. They covered both math and English. Jason is the perfect combination of patient, encouraging, and structured. Jason was instrumental in helping my daughter to achieve the score she did - his help, guidance, and encouragement were invaluable, and she was ecstatic about her score!

Phenomenal Tutor!!

Jason did a wonderful job with my senior preparing him for the ACT (and FSA tests). My son is a great student but has ALWAYS struggled with standardized tests. Jason was patient and gave him strategies and tips/tools to get through the tests. I have already recommended him to another family.

Dawn, 8 lessons with Jason

Outstanding tutor

Jason is clearly a professional, organized and knowledgeable tutor. After just one tutoring session my daughter is already more confident in her test taking abilities.

Cheryl, 14 lessons with Jason

Very Helpful, Thorough & Professional!

Jason provided an excellent overview of the HSPT exam and helped our son quickly identify areas he should work on as he prepared for the test. Follow-up notes were sent to us to see what homework our son was assigned and how he was progressing. We could not be more pleased in how Jason worked with our son and we will be returning for future sessions.

Gunther, 5 lessons with Jason

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Jason is helping my 5th grader prepare for ISEE. He is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. I also find it very helpful that he is currently a 5th-grade teacher and knows the essential 5th/6th-grade curriculum items to focus on in preparation for the exam.

patient tutor - great for teens!

Jason has been a great asset to my boys getting ready for HSPT. He has given them direction and confidence. They love his tips. They now refer to Jason as the GOAT tutor! He is patient and easy for them to connect with.

One word: excellence

2/2 Jason this review I am writing to pay you all your work. I think you gave to our son very important tools for all his professional and personal life. All money I paid for this toutoring classes is nothing in front your teaching. I regret not having started to receive tutoring for my son with Jason earlier. If you are a parent and you are reading this review do not hesitate, when your child is studying with Jason, in a very short time you will see the results and you will remember my words. Highly recommended. I want to share with the people about the good Jason's work. Thank you Jason.
