About Jason


Bio

I've spent my life teaching in a variety of disciplines. First for soldiers in the US Army, then for foreign soldiers and most recently for undergraduate students. I attended George Washington University where I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in anthropology, took multiple courses in creative writing, earned a graduate certificate in documentary filmmaking, and recently completed a MA in anthropology.

I've spent my life teaching in a variety of disciplines. First for soldiers in the US Army, then for foreign soldiers and most recently for undergraduate students. I attended George Washington University where I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in anthropology, took multiple courses in creative writing, earned a graduate certificate in documentary filmmaking, and recently completed a MA in anthropology.

As a graduate student in anthropology, I had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for undergraduate students and completed the GWU graduate teaching assistant certification. I first began tutoring because an interpreter I worked with in Afghanistan who immigrated to the United States and needed help preparing for the math placement test at Northern Virginia Community College. Last fall, I became an adult tutoring volunteer working with people pursuing education while experiencing homelessness. I have a knack for simplifying complex ideas and a genuine appreciation for the joy that accompanies helping others achieve their educational goals.

I earned a 165 on the verbal portion of the GRE and I'll never confuse elegiac and polemical again. I earned a 5 in the analytical writing section. My scores in verbal were in the 96th percentile and 92nd percentile in analytical writing.

As a social science major, writing is the primary skill I’ve practiced. Therefore, if you're in need of a tutor with a varied skill set focused on pre-college math, advanced writing, and verbal test preparation— I'm available to help you achieve your educational objectives. Free chess lessons also available on request.

History

Anthropology

Anthropology

I have earned both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in anthropology and have taught anthropology at the undergraduate level as a graduate teaching assistant. I also completed a graduate certificate program in documentary film and served as both an editor and a director of photography. As a filmmaking anthropologist, my research interests lie at the intersection of media, technology, and contemporary culture. My background in international security informs my perspective on global issues and drives my passion to understand the perspectives of others. Anthropology reveals that understanding the most complex ideas of our time requires a holistic perspective. I'm prepared to help students improve their critical analysis skills to help them achieve their educational objectives.
