About this tutor

I am a graduate of Columbia University. I received my B.A. in Sustainable Development in May 2018, researching electricity access in Nicaragua for my departmental-honors-winning senior thesis and taking additional coursework in philosophy, theology, and Spanish. I am a Minnesota-native, and currently reside in the Washington Heights neighborhood of upper Manhattan.

I love to help students--irrespective of age--learn to love learning. I began tutoring in high school, tutoring my peers in AP Calculus, teaching middle-schoolers math and chemistry, and serving as a writing coach. My current academic interests span the intersection of environmental thought with philosophy and theology, but I am excited and prepared to offer tutoring services to students of any age across mathematics (up to calculus and statistics), English, essay-writing, test-preparation (ACT or SAT and select subject tests), philosophy, religious studies, Spanish, and reading skills.

Academic achievement in high school include an ACT score of 35, National Merit Scholar, National AP Scholar, "Most talented extracurricular student" in public high school of ~3000 students, and more. Undergraduate aademic achievements at Columbia University include latin honors (magna cum laude), departmental honors, multiple dean's list awards, and various fellowships and travel grants.

    As well as he is a good instructor, Jesse is a good listener. He knows how to explain something in a different way if someone isn't "getting it." He's thorough, clear, and exceedingly patient.

  • Cody Kanz
