Jay STEM Tutoring
As a student, I understand how it feels to be lost in a class or having a troubling time mastering certain concepts. I also know that this year especially may be hard for some as virtual learning isn't as receptive as in person. I'm here for those students to help them through challenging material. I always had an affinity for helping classmates which what led me to peer tutor in high school. I also volunteered at our local library teaching local students who were underperforming. I have taken several AP classes and other college classes and performed extremely well in all of them.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to first understand how they think and they best learn so it's easier for me and them to understand the concepts. Then I try to comprehend what they know about the subject and help to try and fill in any gaps in their knowledge. If its SAT/ACT tutoring, I like to use a lot of practice tests because they are a near-exact replica of the actual test. I believe taking multiple practice tests will help students become more skilled and comfortable when taking the actual test.
