“**Awesome tutor, knew his stuff, and walked me through every step of the problems.**”

Hi. My name is Jason. I am currently a Ph.D. student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. I did my undergraduate at Idaho State University where I minored in Mathematics and Majored in Physics. I spent 3 years as a Supplemental Instructor for introductory physics courses, worked for the department tutoring students enrolled in

*Group Rates:
2 Students - $40/hour Each.

Jason is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Jason to get started.

I met Jason for the first time when I was in a crunch to get two college level math assignments done due the same day he tutored with me. I had contacted him the day prior to see if he was available. He contacted me within 30 minutes to arrange a meeting time. I knew he would get a good tutor because of his mathematical background, previous teaching experience, and the way he structured our conversation so that he could help me with my educational needs.

He showed up ten minutes early, with a pen/paper, laptop, and helped me finish my assignments on time. He has made himself available to me outside our tutoring sessions for any other questions I may have on future assignments. Jason is a top notch tutor and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for someone that will sit down with you and be patient while you learn. As he told me, math is an art and it is a beautiful thing.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have a minor in mathematics, and when I took my own ACT in high school I scored 31 in Mathematics. I am skilled in taking math exams, and can teach methods for helping completing an exam as quickly as possible, allowing time to rework more difficult questions.

I have a minor in Mathematics, and use Algebra daily as part of my work. I am happy to teach, and look forward to working with you or your student.

I use Algebra every day as part of my work with physics. Algebra 2 is a broad topic that introduces students to many methods for solving problems in mathematics, and can be daunting because of the sheer number of methods covered. In my own teaching, I try to help students understand the underlying reasoning and mathematics, the "why" of Algebra, to help them perform at their absolute best in their classes.

I have a minor in Mathematics, and use Calculus extensively as part of my work in High Intensity Particle Physics. I look forward to working with you or your student. I have taken Differential Calculus, Calculus, and Vector Calculus as classes and continue to use the material every day, keeping my understanding of the methods and techniques in calculus quite sharp. To best help students learn calculus, I maintain a strong focus on the underlying concepts of the math, combined with many examples of how those concepts relate to actual problems.

I have a minor in Mathematics with an emphasis in applied topics. This degree included taking both differential equations and partial differential equations classes. Additionally, I have a BS in Physics including several classes in the mathematical methods of physics, which as a topic has a strong emphasis on applications of solving differential equations.

As a physicist, I use differential equations often in my work, and remain familiar with the material, the methods of solving them.

I have lived in the Netherlands and developed fluent conversational Dutch during this time. I have since expanded my vocabulary to be workable in my field (Particle Physics) as well, though certainly not as proficient as I am for general conversation. I would be happy to provide written samples of Dutch, and converse with anyone at WyzAnt that would like to vet my abilities.

I have worked in networking and in tech support, and am a very avid computer user. I often build my own computers, and am experienced in programming as well, but most of that probably doesn't interest you right now. More importantly, I am well versed with the methods of learning to use a new program. If you are looking to learn basic computer proficiency I will be happy to help you learn to not only do the things you want to, but also to learn how to find solutions to your tech questions on your own as well.

I have taken college level courses in Linear Algebra and Advanced Linear Algebra from a theoretical perspective. I continue to use linear algebra every day in my work as a physicist. For students of linear algebra I can provide many example problems and solutions, and instruction for the underlying meaning of the math. Often students become lost in unfamiliar notation or vocabulary, not realizing that they actually have done similar things before. I work hard to help student see the relationship between the math they have already learned, and the new structure provided by linear algebra.

I use Linux exclusively for my home computing. I am familiar with several distributions (Fedora 19, 20, 21, Ubuntu 10.04-14.10, Raspbian, Debian Wheezy, CentOS 6.5 and 7, and Scientific Linux 6), and have experience working with the file system. Additionally I run my own network on Linux (2 data servers, one computational server, my own internal DNS, 2 workstations and a web server). I am fully competent to tutor on basic system use for Linux, and introductory systems administration. I can provide references on request.

I use Mathematica professionally almost every day as part of my work in High Intensity Physics for everything from solving basic formula to running complex simulations. Wolfram Mathematica is a very powerful tool for computational and symbolic math, but, as is often the case with very powerful software, its use and interface can be daunting or confusing a student who is new to the software. I have many real world examples of using Mathematica for physics, engineering, and presentation which would be great resources for students wanting to learn how to use this powerful tool, as well a troves of experience to share. A student wanting to learn how to use Mathematica from me can expect many real world examples and demonstrations, as well as a strong exposure to many of Mathematica's common features.

More formally, I have taken classes in college specifically on the use and functionality of Mathematica from the Idaho State University Physics Department (Special Topics Physic 499, Computation Physics).

I am a Ph.D. student in physics with a Bachelor of science in Physics. I am interested in all of the sciences, and regularly read articles in academic journals from many disciplines (especially Nature). I am also an active member of the scientific community by virtue of my own research as a physicist. The combination of a strong general interest and a significant subject specific training gives me ample qualification to tutor in the Physical Science, and other high school level or introductory college level courses. As in all subjects I tutor, I try to focus on the concepts and ideas behind the work, to help students generate a strong understanding of the material and allow them to answer their own questions in the future. Such a process helps students learn not only the material they are studying, but how to branch out and apply or expand that knowledge.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in physics, having exposure to many topics in the field. I have tutored algebra and calculus based general physics for several years now. I try to emphasize concepts and understanding for students, helping them to learn how to approach new problems on their own. As part of this, I often will work many examples with students, and like to review problems they may have had issues with in the past.
