About Jack

Students and Parents,

I've competed for coveted scholarships at prestigious universities in the United States. My scores on essential exams, namely the SAT and ACT exams, placed me into a percentile that allowed me impressive company. I pursued a scholarship at the University of Chicago, mingled with students studying under a Nobel Laureate, and, with this credential, completed a 20th Century Latin American Literature course instructed by a tenured Professor of Literature of Oxford University. I studied at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Peru, foreign study, one of the foremost universities in Peru, furthering my dialectical studies in the Spanish language. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Texas at a state university, giving me a common touch. So, what does this mean for my student?

As I understand it tutoring is to help you learn. I learned everything I could concerning mathematics in my secondary education. For my tenacity I earned a near perfect score on the SAT, missing only the last question I didn't have time to answer. My character, molded by an astute academy, is well honored and one you will find appropriate to achieve such results. I was a valedictorian, commanding officer of San Marcos Baptist Academy, recipient of the President's Cup for Outstanding Character, received Special Congressional Recognition, and a MacArthur Award. My desire to teach, love for the pursuit of excellence and track record of achievement are the key to your student's edge in mathematics, literature and Spanish at the secondary level.

Sincerely,

Jack C. S.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have an almost perfect SAT score (didn't have time to answer last problem, only one missed) and excellent skills in algebra. I can give you quick-to -learn tips to score well on any exam!

Algebra 2

I know a lot of tricks to do well on tests when you may not know all of the material.

ESL/ESOL

While I was teaching American English in South America I was invited to publish a text of my own. My methods were so effective the management decided it would be best to use my approach rather than the resources already used. Unfortunately, I had to move to opportunities in another country before we had the opportunity to compose the text. If someone with this sensibility in language could be of use, I'd like to help!

SAT Math

I made an almost perfect score, missing one question on the non-verbal SAT, the last one, not having time to complete it. I know the test very well. If your student is in a course I can be especially beneficial. I've been a professor and I can help your student learn more from his/her instructor. In any case, I can advance your student to a brighter future.

Spanish

I've completed a 20th Century Latin American Literature course taught by a tenured professor from Oxford University. It may lead to intelligent discussion (it was taught in Castellano Spanish).
