Hi there! I’m Jack, and I love being a tutor. I see tutoring as a great opportunity to have a meaningful impact in my students’ academic careers. Through my work as a tutor, I help students gain both a stronger conceptual understanding of the material at hand, as well as helping them learn more about how they come to grasp new material.
In my undergraduate technical coursework, I enjoyed learning how to use different tools to conceptualize and formulate solutions to problems, using economics, code, and proof-based math to do so. I use this same holistic approach to problem-solving to work with students who prefer different learning styles, using different explanations to help students gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter at hand.
In my undergraduate liberal arts studies, I took a wide breadth of courses in literature, American studies, philosophy, and religion. I love thinking critically about what I read. When I was younger, however, writing and reading comprehension didn’t come as easily to me as math or science did. After a lot of work throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I came to appreciate and excel in both subjects. I would love the opportunity to help other younger students become more skilled in this craft, just as my teachers and tutors helped me.
I hope you enjoyed learning more about me, and I hope to have the opportunity to work with you!
