About Jake

I am currently a Junior at JMU, having transferred from UC San Diego. I got married in June and we packed up and moved across the country in August! We have loved exploring Rockingham County and beyond. We are thriving in all of the seasonal changes of the area.
I graduated from high school with a 3.98 un-weighted GPA and currently hold a 3.7 GPA through college. I received 5s on the AP Calculus and AP Literature exams, a composite 2130 on the SAT and a 31 on the ACT. I specialize in English and Math, and feel most confident about SAT/ACT/AP writing and reading comprehensions.
I have always believed that the best learning and study methods come from repeat exposure and extreme practice! My methods will be patient and comprehensive (and hopefully very relatable) lessons on any uncertainties and reinforcement of all necessary skills. I also realize how much of a chore learning can be, so I will do everything in my power to create a comfortable and low-pressure environment. I hope to be a friend and a role model for all students with whom I have the honor of working.

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.
