Jason "... As a Teacher and a Tutor, my goal is to help students to become “elite problem solvers and master thinkers.” I help each student to become a whiz in logic and reasoning through hands-on learning activities and taking real-world problems and trying to solve them in a way that makes sense to the student. It can be tough and challenging, but nothing feels more rewarding then being proud of the hard work that went into figuring out a problem. I have traveled my whole life and my goal is to visit and learn from different cultures and traditions on all 7 continents..."

My favorite subject to tutor is reading because reading lays the foundation for all other learning..."

While I tutor a variety of subjects, I feel a particular affinity for History and helping students become the best writers they can be..."

In the future, I hope to teach aspiring teachers in a college of education..."
