About Jeremy


Bio

I tutored in high school by teaching math to high school friends outside of class, where I helped those who were struggling with high school math, including Algebra, Geometry and Precalculus, by walking them through problems and helping them understand how to draw effective diagrams. I continued this work as a TA for three years in college, where I supervised students in introductory CS courses in the computer lab during evening hours.

I've tutored students of all ages studying for exams...

I tutored in high school by teaching math to high school friends outside of class, where I helped those who were struggling with high school math, including Algebra, Geometry and Precalculus, by walking them through problems and helping them understand how to draw effective diagrams. I continued this work as a TA for three years in college, where I supervised students in introductory CS courses in the computer lab during evening hours.

I've tutored students of all ages studying for exams like the SAT, GRE and GED. I teach math ranging from pre-algebra through pre-calculus. I walk students through problems ranging from probability and combinations to sets of linear equations, and also provide them with helpful strategies to help them get the right answer. I know how to explain difficult concepts in ways that students can easily understand.

When I teach writing, I employ this framework:
1. Who is your audience? What is going to be important to them?
2. What is the purpose of the written piece? What do you want your audience to know about at the end? What do you need to tell them and what can you leave out?
3. What is the theme of the paragraph you’re writing? How does it support the overall document? What should people know after reading it?
4. What idea are you currently discussing? Does it fit the theme of the paragraph? If you take it out, will the paragraph be weaker?
5. Do the sentences tell a story that supports the idea? Are they even relevant? Can you communicate the same information in one sentence instead of two?
6. Do your grammar and word choice clearly communicate your intended meaning? Could someone easily misinterpret or be confused by what you’ve written?

Subjects

Art

Photography

Photography

I have been taking photographs since I was seven, and initially learned to develop in a darkroom. Since switching to digital, I have learned how to adjust f-stops and shutter speeds depending on the composition of the photo I want to take. I can instruct in the rule of thirds, how to properly center a subject, basic color theory and how to edit images in programs like darktable.

Business

GMAT,

GMAT

I have reviewed the high-level math and verbal concepts of the GMAT, which are similar to the GRE. My scores on the GRE were 166 Quantitative, 165 Verbal and 5 Writing. Much of the GRE's content and strategies are easily translatable to the GMAT, so I am qualified to help prepare for this examination as well.
GRE,

GRE

I studied for the GRE for about 3 months. In addition to reviewing math and verbal concepts, I worked with my own tutor to learn specific test-taking strategies. Because of this, I'm very well-qualified to teach others how to get a similar score to me.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have been speaking and performing in front of large audiences for several decades. I was active in theater in high school and college, which helped me acclimate to that kind of environment. More recently, I have developed, written and rehearsed speeches that I have delivered in several contexts, but most prominently two different TEDx events.

Computer

Computer Science,

Computer Science

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science nearly a decade ago, but have kept up in the tech and programming world ever since. I recognize that programming is often intimidating to those just starting out, so I like to help empower people to become more comfortable with the practice. With regards to particular languages, I specialize in R, Java and Python.
CSS,

CSS

I have been building webpages with HTML and CSS for over a decade. I can teach the difference between margins and padding, how to float a paragraph to the right, the difference between classes and ids, and how to best utilize W3Schools to quickly check any CSS command you need.
HTML,

HTML

I earned my BS in Computer Science and have worked for several years as a web designer and developer. I am familiar with many web technologies including HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP.
Linux,

Linux

I have been using Ubuntu for several years now. I regularly make updates from the terminal, use fdisk to determine the /dev paths of USB thumb drives, and routinely teach myself bash scripts for image resizing and PDF manipulation. I am confident I can teach the basics of Linux to any interested student.
Macintosh,

Macintosh

I have been using Macintosh computers on and off since 2008. I've learned many of the ins and outs of the MacOS operating system. I can teach the use of the automator tool, how to properly configure a wireless network, how to use iTunes and synchronize with the iPhone, and many other hidden features of the OS.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Windows since I was 3. I've learned many of the ins and outs of the system, including how to format external drives and edit the registry. I can show how to properly deploy antivirus software, how to properly configure a wireless network, how to mount a virtual disc, and many other hidden features of the OS.

Web Design

Web Design

I have been designing webpages for over a decade. I fundamentally understand the underlying HTML, CSS and both backend and frontend coding that goes into making a great website. I can teach color pairings and contrast according to the colorbrewer framework, which helps ensure that any selected colors will play well together and be pleasing to the eye. With HTML, I can teach any student how to embed images, separate div blocks and spans, and tag HTML documents correctly. With CSS, I can show how to use the latest options to appropriately color and style any element of a webpage with whatever fonts or colors you like. Javascript will help build in responsive designs and ensure that any webpage can demonstrate its current status to the user.

Very knowledgeable tutor

Jeremy was a very knowledgeable and helpful tutor. He provided good feedback for me a few days before my GRE and that was instrumental in getting the score I needed for my test. Will definitely work with him again if the need arises.

Bruce Osezua, 1 lesson with Jeremy

Great, knowledgeable, good communicator instructure for Python 3 issues

I had questions around downloading images from image urls using Python 3. Jeremy immediately understood my goal. Jeremy taught me better method and thinking in how to solve the problem versus just getting me to the solution. His communications is efficient and direct. We shared screens and he could understand what he was looking at and address the understanding. Also critiqued my approaches to solving problems and offered suggestions to improve. He did this quickly and efficiently in terms of time taken. I will definitely use Jeremy again if I have a relevant question for his expertise.

Super helpful!

Jeremy was very knowledgeable about R and very patient in walking me through the dplyr functions. As a student that had only been coding for a couple of weeks I was very overwhelmed but I felt more confident after working with Jeremy.
