I am uniquely qualified to help your student. In addition to my past teaching experience, I have worked as a scorer and scorer supervisor for Pearson, scoring the written portions of the EOC tests among others. Since August, I have taught a special English EOC intervention class at a local high school. My students were almost all seniors, most of whom had failed to pass one or both of the two English tests multiple times. Statewide, in any of the typical retesting sessions, around one-third of students pass the test. Almost 90% of the seniors in my classes passed the December retests and have finally removed that crucial obstacle to their imminent graduation. It's just a matter of learning, understanding, and practicing the best strategies to use on test day.

From elementary grades to college level, I am eager to put my extensive teaching experience and academic background to use in crafting highly effective tutorials for you or your student!

Whether the student’s needs are in mastering the course content or in developing effective reading and writing skills, I can help with both. The short-term goal may be a better grade in the class or a higher test score; I will help any student achieve not only that, but become a better learner for life.

I have over a decade of classroom teaching and tutoring experience across a range of grade levels including middle school, high school, and college. My first expertise is in English language arts and literacy instruction: reading, writing, and test preparation. I also have extensive experience in teaching various social studies courses, including geography, U.S. government, and U.S. history. In addition, I have some experience with IB curriculum.

I'm comfortable tutoring in any subject area up to the middle school level and the abovementioned subjects at high school or college level. I am flexible in scheduling and traveling and will work with you to get the best learning, preparation, and results possible!

Wonderful Experience

We hired Jason to tutor our high school aged son. Jason designed lesson plans tailored to his needs. He was easy to get a hold of and work with. We would definitely work with Jason again.
