About Jason


Bio

I've loved mathematics ever since I was young, and I enjoy how it manifests in everything from puzzles to technology. For me, math provides a rich playground to improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills. I was the kid that always asked "why" and math helped explain a lot of things that fascinated me throughout the years.

Two decades have passed since my early childhood. At this point in life, I have taught college-level mathematics as an instructor of record for 3.5 years...

I've loved mathematics ever since I was young, and I enjoy how it manifests in everything from puzzles to technology. For me, math provides a rich playground to improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills. I was the kid that always asked "why" and math helped explain a lot of things that fascinated me throughout the years.

Two decades have passed since my early childhood. At this point in life, I have taught college-level mathematics as an instructor of record for 3.5 years and I have tutored or assisted in math courses (ranging from high school to graduate level) for more than 8 years. I have recently graduated with a Ph.D. in mathematics and I'm well-rounded in several math courses/topics.

I have taught Calculus I - III and I have assisted or tutored in Geometry, Trigonometry, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, and Logic throughout my journey.

Helping a student have that "Eureka!" moment is the best feeling as a tutor, assistant and instructor alike. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you wish to schedule a session.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

As an undergraduate student, I took combinatorics as a directed study which included several topics in discrete mathematics such as graph theory, counting principles, permutations, combinations, and counting proofs via bijections. As a graduate student, I took two courses in graph theory and passed their respective candidacy exams. During my graduate studies, I also tutored multiple undergraduate students with discrete mathematics questions.
Logic,

Logic

As an undergraduate student, I took an introduction to logic and proofs course as well as several proof-style courses such as real analysis and abstract algebra. As a graduate student in mathematics, logic/proof is one of the many requirements needed to succeed in virtually every course, and mastering logic/proof skills is crucial to completing the doctorate program. During my graduate studies, I have also tutored multiple students with logic/proof questions.

Actively helping you along the way

We are learning about Real Analysis, a notoriously difficult subject for many people. We worked on some exercises and he was brilliant, making sure I could talk about my ideas, disprove myself and learn to recognize a good idea when it came. If you want someone who will actually Listen to you, Jason is the perfect tutor.

Excellent Analysis Tutor!

I've had 8 tutoring sessions with Jason and all of them have went beyond my expectations! He works through the problems in detail and explains everything with clarity. It is obvious he is passionate about mathematics and genuinely cares that you understand the material. If you tell him the time frame of the assignment, he will work at a proper pace to help you meet the deadline. If he is unsure about a problem, he will make sure to have it solved by your next session. Typically, I am anxious around people when being tutored but I feel that Jason takes a non-judgemental approach in teaching. Message him. You won't regret it!

Very knowledgeable tutor. Highly recommend!

I have had many tutoring sessions with Jason and he is an expert, in my opinion. He has helped me recently with dot products (also known as inner products), how they represent the alignment of two vectors, how to find projections of one vector onto another, and how to apply these concepts to the Gram-Schmidt algorithm. We have also discussed how to find a unit vector that points in the same direction as a given vector. We have gone over how to find projections of one vector onto another, and how to apply these concepts to the Gram-Schmidt algorithm. We have also discussed how to find a unit vector that points in the same direction as a given vector. Reviewed vector spaces and their axioms: associative, commutative, identity, inverses, closure, and distributive. Worked with an example to show that it failed the vector space axioms. Also worked with examples that verified some of the axioms, and worked with properties of determinants. Reviewed exercises in parity of permutations, properties of determinants, and how to compute determinants with row echelon - upper triangular methods. We have also reviewed matrices, including how to compute determinants of matrices, how the determinant of a matrix changes by row/column operations, how to compute the adjugate matrix, and Cramer's rule. It's very obvious that Jason is great with math and his teaching style is also very engaging and entertaining since he visually helps you to understand the concepts by drawing them out if you need further help understanding the concepts.

Very good tutor !

Jason helps me a lot in linear algebra. He is so knowledgeable in math and explains the concepts/problems to me very patiently and clearly every time. He is also a very nice and understanding person who cares about his students. I really appreciate all his help :)

Math Logic

Jason helped my son with college math logic curriculum. He was very helpful and patient. I would highly recommend Jason. He responded to my inquiry in 8 hours.
