Hi there, I'm Jacob! I graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Agricultural and Environmental Plant Sciences with a concentration in Environmental Horticulture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I have always had a passion for learning and a desire to teach, which has led me to my current enrollment as a graduate student in horticulture at Penn State. The instructors that made the biggest impact on me throughout my years in university where those that were passionate and dedicated to what they were teaching. My wish is to bring some excitement and enthusiasm I feel for these topics to our tutoring sessions.

My most current teaching experience has been a lab instructor for plant identification. In the past I have also TA'd for plant taxonomy courses. Through these duties I have learned how to communicate in a variety of different styles and how to create proper dialogue to ensure both teacher and student are on the same page with the material at hand.

I specialize in plant science/horticulture as well as introductory botany and plant taxonomy. As an undergraduate I took many courses on a broad range of plant-centric topics including: intro to plant biology, plant pathology, plant physiology, plant taxonomy, field botany, plant ecology, greenhouse and nursery production, IPM, plant identification, plant propagation, and so much more. I have a true passion for plants that goes beyond the classroom and expresses itself as a hobby in my life.

I desire to help in all ways that I can. I will work with you (and potentially your parent) to ensure your needs are met. Beyond that I want to create an inviting and comfortable atmosphere where you feel comfortable and acknowledged without fear of asking the wrong question. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a session, thank you!

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I encounter elementary math in my daily life, and I am constantly utilizing what I learned in the past to problem solve in the present. From fertilizer equations to budgeting for groceries, I deal with fractions, conversions, and other problems consistently. I can advise in different ways to deal with problems and tailor my teaching to the students learning style. I can help students deconstruct word problems and turn them into a fun puzzle to solve!

Science

Botany

Botany

I have taken many courses within the realm of botany including: plant biology, plant physiology, plant taxonomy, and field botany. I am currently a graduate student at Penn State that utilizes my background knowledge in botany to perform applied research. Under the umbrella term of botany I am specifically proficient in plant morphology/ID and plant science within an agronomic setting.
