Jacob's Math Tutoring
Hello. My name is Jacob, and I'm a math major at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN. I've always enjoyed math and love teaching it to others. I was a volunteer math tutor in high school before the Covid pandemic forced me to stop. I have taken math classes up through Calculus 3 and Differential Equations this past year, and I earned a 36 on the math portion of the ACT.
I really enjoy helping others learn math, and I understand how difficult it can be to grasp concepts. I loved helping my classmates back in high school, and I have been looking for an opportunity to tutor again.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I make sure to be patient and kind when working with students. I know how difficult it can be to learn new topics, and sometimes it just takes time. I also do my best to do multiple example problems of the same kind since I think repetition helps solidify concepts.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a high school diploma, and I'm currently seeking a bachelor's degree in applied math. I helped as a volunteer tutor in high school.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I'm asking for 20 dollars per hour of instruction.
How did you get started teaching?
I was one of the top math students at my high school and I was asked to come help with tutoring during the study hall period.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've mainly worked with high school students, but I am comfortable with any age group.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
One recent event I am fond of is when I attended the Mu Alpha Theta state convention for Tennessee and got to compete in various different math competitions.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would advise them to bring materials from their school lesson in order to let me help them with their work.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
I think students should consider which topics they struggle the most with, so they can get help with those first and get the most out of a tutoring session.
