My name is Jared and recently graduated from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine and am continuing my medical training at Norton Hospital as a Foot and Ankle Surgical resident.
I have a true desire to help young students overcome obstacles, attain specific goals, and reach their maximum potential. I have a personal interest in teaching because I spent the last 9 years of my life undergoing rigorous secondary education at three of the finest colleges and universities in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, it was not always easy. During my education there was a lot of trial and error and a number of failed study techniques. I plan on using my personal experience that I gained during my time as a student to help each individual student.
I believe in a three tier teaching system that allowed me to excel and achieve a class ranking of #3 in medical school.
1. Understanding the actual material that you are studying. If you don't understand what you are studying, it makes studying and memorizing the material astronomically more difficult.
2. Figuring out a method that allows you to understand the material efficiently for YOU. This is probably the biggest thing that is overlooked in education. In my undergraduate studies I studied the way I saw everyone else around me studying, reading from their notes. This did not work for me. It wasn't until I started trying specific things like utilizing online notecards, and rewriting my notes on a chalkboard from memory that I started seeing success reflected in my grades.
3. Find something that motivates you, and use it every single day. Studying is not fun, plain and simple. But, unfortunately it is a means to an end. Grades and extracurricular activities are the only thing a young student is judged by, and the better grades one achieves the more doors that are opened. If you can find something that motivates you, whether it be a nice house, car, lifestyle, security, ability to travel, power, tell yourself that achieving a good grade on this test, in this class will help me achieve my ultimate goal.
I have no formal background in education, but I have tutored numerous students in multiple subjects using this system and each and everyone of them has found success. I have a true passion for teaching and would love to help anyone and everyone.
