Jacob

I graduated from the University of Michigan in May 2015 with a degree in Honors Biophysics. As an undergraduate, I taught and tutored many students in a wide variety of introductory science courses at the University of Michigan. Post-graduation, I have continued to tutor full-time in addition to doing research through the Michigan Clinical Outcomes Research and Reporting Program.

I believe that all of the students I work with are intelligent, but often lecture-based learning does not fit their personal learning style. I love working with students to bridge this learning gap, helping them to genuinely understand course content and master homework and exams.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am very focused on promoting active learning in students. It is important to me I push students to do as much as they can without me and consider questions carefully before I give them answers.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a typical first session with a student, I will assess the student’s current state of knowledge for the class they need help with. We will determine what strategies, then, can best improve that student’s performance.
