Hi I'm Jason and I'm a dual degree math/music student at the University of Rochester. I have always enjoyed teaching, and I know how important it is to find a good teacher for math. Math is unique becuase every step along the way requires that you have a deep understanding of all the previous steps, and often when you are having trouble with a topic, it is acutally because you don't fully understand that topic that came before. I hope to help you find those areas that need work and polish them up so that your math progress can be as efficient and enjoyable as possible.
I think it's very rewarding when I can inspire my students to take topics into their own hands, and when I can give them the tools to start teaching themselves.

Great tutor! I needed help preparing for the SAT and I'm very happy with my score. Thanks Jason!
When working with a new student, I always like to ask a few questions about their background in math and get a sense of what areas need to be focused on, as well as what their goals are.
I was a dual degree math/music major at the University of Rochester and took honors calculus. I also got 720 on the math portion of my SAT. However I have since dropped the math portion of my degree to focus on music.
$15/30 min, $25/hr.
Throughout middle school, high school, and even college I would always be helping friends who were struggling with their math assignments. I have also taught music in a private and classroom setting for over six years.
I have worked with students aged 14 to 40 as well as people with learning disabilities. Whatever your situation is, I would love to help you learn!
I would advise students to find someone who is actually interested in teaching and not just showing off how smart they are. Often I have seen people who are incredibly good at math (taking college-level calculus in middle school, for instance) who are totally unable to teach because they think everything should just be easy. I am not one of those people. I love math, but I know that it takes consistent, guided effort to make progress in.
In general, I think its important for students to know why a tutor is helpful before starting lessons. If everything is available on Kahn Academy, then why should I get a tutor? Because tutors are able to identify exactly which areas need work, and detirmine the specific stumbling blocks that need to be removed before getting to the next step. This makes the learning process infinitely more efficient than surfing around for videos could ever be.
