Hello, my name is Jason B. I am certified to teach English K-12. I have 6 years of Educational Experience, working at Huntington Learning Center and Score Educational Centers. I am a certified English Teacher, and recently concluded a full year teaching at a private school in New Jersey. I currently live in Virginia. My experience at Huntington and as a teacher have given me a comprehensive understanding of what is taught in schools, and standardized tests.
Besides English, I am equally talented in Math. Many of my favorite subjects in school were math classes, such as Algebra and Geometry. I decided upon English because I realized the importance of showing students how critical language is in the job world, along with the fact that I love to read and discuss some of the great works of literature.
My tutoring methods are always thorough and complete. No matter what subject I am tutoring, I always want to ensure that every type of question or section is covered, so that there aren't any areas I didn't cover. For example, if I am teaching writing, I will teach each step of the writing process, including pre-writing, outlining, drafting, and proofreading. If I am teaching for a standardized test or SAT, I will cover each type of essay that will be covered, such as the persuasive and expository essay. This is also true when I tutor Math...no matter what the math lesson is, I will cover each possible example question for the given section, to ensure that my students will never see a "trick" question in school that could stump them.
I believe in this technique because I want all of my students to succeed in every possible way. I want to make sure that a thorough job has been done, so that my students aren't confused or stuck. If certain areas are difficult, I will spend as much time as necessary before I move on, to ensure that the section has been mastered. I enjoy teaching, I love working with my students, and I look forward to working with and helping as many students as I can! Hello, my name is Jason B. I am certified to teach English K-12.

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.
