About Jeremy


Bio

I am a professional tutor and recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, with a BA in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. I first fell in love with helping people learn at the age of 17, when I was hired by a small private school to teach writing, SAT and college prep.

At UPenn I began to specialize more in math though I continued to help local high school students in writing, SAT preparation, and college counseling. I also formally tutored my fellow-students in Calculus...

I am a professional tutor and recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, with a BA in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. I first fell in love with helping people learn at the age of 17, when I was hired by a small private school to teach writing, SAT and college prep.

At UPenn I began to specialize more in math though I continued to help local high school students in writing, SAT preparation, and college counseling. I also formally tutored my fellow-students in Calculus (single-variable) and Physics. Fall of my junior year, I began working as a teacher's assistant - grading, devising review sessions, holding office hours, and helping my employer implement active learning sessions in-class.

After graduation I began to contract as an independent tutor, beginning on the Varsity Tutors' platform where I worked for just under a year. Fall of 2018 I decided to switch entirely to Wyzant's platform for its higher quality of online sessions, greater independence, and flexibility.

I focus on Calculus, SAT math prep, and high school math.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the foundation of mathematics, and I find myself teaching it to all my students. I am currently tutoring two students in algebra, and I would love to work with some more!
Calculus,

Calculus

I have been tutoring students in Calculus for a little over 6 years. I have worked with hundreds of students in one-on-one and class-room settings. As a teacher's assistant, I have also graded homework and exams and helped design review sessions. I know Calculus inside out, know where students struggle, and know how to make those struggles go away.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have tutored Pre-calculus extensively, both in helping Calculus students who forgot necessary concepts and in helping students in the greater Raleigh area in Math 1-3. I know the content well, and I know how it will be used in future classes as a student progresses.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I scored an 800 on the SAT math section (770 on reading/writing). In the past 3 years I have developed hundreds of targeted practice problems, closely styled on actual test questions. We use College Board practice tests and math drilling techniques - and we get results. I like to work with students intensively for 8-10 weeks leading up to their exam, but also tutor in longer/shorter time-frames. Results vary, but the typical student who goes through my 8-10 week program sees a 50-100 point increase in their math score (100-200 point increase in their total if we do reading/writing as well.)

Terrific with math SAT

Was able to review specific test questions and give my daughter help with formulas and approaches. Have her specific assignments for between meetings. Thanks so much!

Carey, 4 lessons with Jeremy

Excellent!

I have worked with many tutors in the past, but Jeremey is by far the most professional and well prepared tutor I have experienced on this platform. Every lesson was extremely beneficial and insightful. I would definitely recommend Jeremy.

Thank you, Isaiah! It was a pleasure working with you - best of luck on Saturday!

Excellent SAT Math Tutor

My child started working with Jeremy in the early fall during her junior year. She started with a score of 700 in math and it frequently fluctuated. Jeremy helped my child fill any gaps in her basic foundations of math and taught her how to approach different kinds of math problems. She learned faster ways to solve different problems, and she did not get stuck anymore when there was a variation in the question since she knew the concepts. He also provided her with a variety of practice problems and tests to help her keep working on strengthening her skills. He is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor with this subject. My daughter scored a 790 in math thanks to a few months of practice with him. We highly recommend considering Jeremy as he will help your child feel confident and ready to take the SAT math portion of the test.

Thank you, Latha! Your daughter is an outstanding student - definitely deserved her 790!

Best Math Tutor

My son got 770 for math at his April SAT. Jeremy helped him to improve so much in a very short time. We met him about 5 weeks before the April test and choose to do twice a week lessons. Our target score was 750. My son ended up got 770. He has improved almost 100 points from the time he met Jeremy. My son thinks Jeremy is an awesome tutor and really enjoys working with him. I highly recommend Jeremy. He is the best!!!

Cheryl, 18 lessons with Jeremy

Very intelligent and nice, explains material well

Jeremy is helping my daughter prepare for the SAT. He has a lot of experience with it, so he knows the areas she needs to focus on for success. He explains difficult material clearly and I’m sure her score will improve because of these sessions. We’re happy to have Jeremy’s help!

Best Math Tutor

Jeremy has a way to make math much easier to understand for my son. My son had 5 lessons in last two weeks and he has improved almost 100 points at his SAT MATH tests. I’m really impressed!!! Because of covid he didn’t have math classes from his school for almost a year and I was really worried. But now he has picked up almost everything after working with Jeremy in a very short time. I highly recommend Jeremy. I’d introduce Jeremy to all my friends if they were looking for a math tutor.

Thanks so much for the feedback, Cheryl! Ian is a great student - it's been a real priviledge working with him!

They reviewed the problems my daughter got incorrect. She told me that he was very thorough in his explanations and gave her relevant extra problems to work on.
