Hello, my name is Jackson. I'm 44, and I live in Plymouth, Minnesota. I have a degree in Computer Science from Metropolitan State University. I am also an artist and a musician. I studied Music Education at Viterbo University for four years, and I have several years of experience giving lessons in piano, trombone, bass guitar, and voice.

So, we're all just trying to survive 2020 as best we can, right? While some things may never return to normal, math is something eternal and constant, not subject to the capricious whims of our chaotic lives. There's something almost healing about that. I'm here to help you keep the ball moving forward in terms of math instruction for your kids and/or you. Alternately, or in addition I also offer instruction in computer science, music theory, and chess.

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

In advance of a first meeing with a student I would exchange a few emails to get a sense of where they are and where they need to go in terms of knowledge and skills. Then I would prepare some test examples so we would have something to discuss right away. Then I would go over their current unit's material with them, and try to help them understand not merely the core concept, but also why the concept is important to understand using real-world examples. I'd go over the first few problems with them, to make sure they were on the right track. Then at the next lesson I would review the previous lesson to ensure they had it correct.

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

My many years of experience as a musician has informed me that music and math are very closely related--not just in terms of their construction, but also in their study. Both are very much "practice makes perfect" disciplines, and the skills compound on, and require mastery of earlier skills. Algebra is nearly impossible to learn without understanding arithmetic, just as playing a solo is very difficult without understanding how scales work.
