About Jason

Hi. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in history and minor in business in 2011. Completed my Masters in Secondary Education in 2013, and I am currently working in the Collierville School District in Collierville, TN.. While at Kansas I was involved in Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity and in the fraternity I was the scholarship chair for 2 years. I would organize study sessions, help tutor fellow members, but most of all encourage and motivate them to study and learn. I currently teach 8th grade U.S. History and have developed many skills to help my students succeed and enjoy learning about history.

Yet, I was not always the best, most focused, or had the biggest desire to learn with the best study habits in high school. Therefore, after not meeting my goals in high school I changed my ways and more importantly my attitude in college. I took the time to learn what worked best for me and discuss with other students how they succeed and at focused. I learned different and unique ways to study, focus, and stay motivated in school. Because of the unique path I have taken, I know I offer a unique approach to teach and tutor kids. But no matter what kind of strategy, to succeed in any subject in school or any path in life it takes HARD WORK and PASSION. Hence if you want an understanding, positive, dedicated, and passionate tutor...I'm your man!
