About Jacob


Bio

High school physics and chemistry teacher who left his life in engineering to pursue his dream of becoming a teacher. Many grad students know the subject, but few have the experience I do working with high school students, helping them learn the subject and tips and tricks for succeeding in class.

I specialize in preparation for each of the AP Physics Tests (1, 2, C:M, and C:E&M) and the AP Chemistry test, but can also help in intro to college courses as well as middle school/high school...

High school physics and chemistry teacher who left his life in engineering to pursue his dream of becoming a teacher. Many grad students know the subject, but few have the experience I do working with high school students, helping them learn the subject and tips and tricks for succeeding in class.

I specialize in preparation for each of the AP Physics Tests (1, 2, C:M, and C:E&M) and the AP Chemistry test, but can also help in intro to college courses as well as middle school/high school non-AP Physics and Chemistry. I like to make sure that my students truly understand what they are doing when solving a problem, as well as what are the most common 'tricks' AP writers and teachers like to play on questions.

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Calculus AB and BC, precalculus, geometry

As stated above, I have successfully taught all levels of high school physics for 5 years.

Mostly available on weekends, but my school gets out at 215 and I am flexible on meet times/locations.
