About this tutor

I have PhD in physics, so I'm both an expert and someone who loves the subject. I've tutored and taught at Undergraduate classes. My interestes are varied between physics, computer science and engineering, so I can help students make connections between subjects.

I really enjoy the moment when I watch a student understand something they didn't a few minutes before. I enjoy the one on one interaction that allows me to push students to understand the material and reason about it. My primary goal is teach students enough about learning that they no longer need tutoring. I enjoy watching the intellectual growth that leads to this point.

    He answered all my random questions.

    Jason was a wonderful resource for my physics course. He was very flexible of when I needed help with deadlines, and saved me a lot of frustration and stress. Jason not only helped improve my homework grades, but helped me gain a deeper understanding of the course material and gave me the tools to succeed independently on my exams.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start by asking them what their goals are and what issues they are having. Then I ask subject specific questions to confirm their self assesment. From there I develop an individual learning plan for each student.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a PhD in Physics. As part of the process, trained several people in lab specific procedures as well as research level physics and data analysis. I was also hired by the physics department to tutor students for the physics comprehensive exam, required to pass in order proceed in the PhD program. In addition, I was a teaching assistant for standard introductory physics classes.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes! It's quite simple $50/tutoring hour.


How did you get started teaching?

Working on homework in public. I helped younger students around me when I noticed they had difficulties.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you've checked all free resources your school offers. It's possible you can get help on campus for free. If that's not an option, think carefully about what issues you have with the material and your learning goals.
