When I became a college student, I was offered a position at my University's math tutoring center. Because of my previous experiences as a tutor, I was up for the new challenge. During my Sophomore year, I became a Teacher's Assistant working in classes of 25-40 students.

Throughout my various experiences, I learned that I had a knack for figuring out the way people think and what methods help certain people grasp a new concept best. A problem facing many students in Math is that a majority ...
This was my first session with Jake and we used the online session. We worked on problems using methods of integration for my college Calculus 2 class. I now have a better understanding of the material. Looking forward to my next lesson with Jake.

Jake and I went over the average rate of change, derivatives and limits. Jake is an intelligent, patient and great tutor. We covered the quotient rule, chain rule and product rule. We also touched upon partial derivatives. I am looking forward to working with Jake again.

Appreciate Jake's teaching abilities and versatile style. He has a real impact in a short amount of time. Thank you!

We went through and Jake helped assess where I currently am with my math knowledge. From there we went through problems and set up a plan moving forward to help me reach my goals.

So far, Jake has been a pleasure to work with. He was punctual and ready to start the lesson at the assigned time. He was knowledgeable of the subject matter, simplified complex ideas, was patient, calm, and understanding. My son was so appreciative and stated that he came away feeling more confident about geometry after one lesson with Jake than he has from weekly tutoring sessions with his own teacher. I highly recommend Jake as a tutor!

We were hard-pressed to find a good tutor for our daughter who really knows how to teach - not just knows math....and then we found Jake! His approach is individualized and he's done an incredible job explaining math problems in an easy way for our daughter to understand. His patient and able to relate to the thinking process of our daughter and how she approaches math. I'd highly recommend Jake to any parent needing help with math tutoring for their child.

Jake is a great guy who helped me with algebra 2. From one lesson he helped me understand difficult content i didnt know before. I highly recommend him for any in need of help.
- Archie S. from New York, NY
Explained the principles of math that I was missing and did so in an effective and simple way! Didn't waste time and helped me with not just examples but simple tips and tricks to understand better.
- Marek N. from New York, NY
Jake is great, he is patient and really goes through what you're struggling with. He is very knowledgable! He is easy to schedule with and will go over your homework or whatever you are having issues with.

Jake was good and patient with my daughter. It was our first class, and we were delighted to find him the exact person he described himself in a preview.

I am taking an accelerated 6 week summer calculus class at Columbia, and Jake has been of immense help. The pace is such that absorbing the material in class is very difficult, and Jake has been willing to work through problems with me in a precise, well explained manner that has kept me from feeling discouraged with material that I am not fully comfortable with. I would suggest Jake for anyone that needs a math tutor that is patient, professional and willing to answer the "dumb" questions.
- Robert D. from New York, NY
Jake helped me prep for my math placement test going over elementary algebra and some college level math. He gives multiple ways to solve a problem if you don't get it, and it his patient and will explain it however many time you need. He's super easy to talk to and comfortable to be around. Thank you!
- Isabelle C. from New York, NY
There is no way I would have finished my college Calculus course without Jake's help! He knows his material backwards and forwards! If he happens to not know he is able to teach himself accurately within a minute or two! He has a great teaching method and really makes sure you leave the lesson understanding your material. He is also there to answer the occasional question through email if needed! Completely suggest getting Jake for a tutor!
- Sarah W. from Long Island City, NY
Jake was extremely helpful. Within the first session I was able to understand so much more than I had before my meeting with him. Will definitely contact Jack again!

My daughter has had three sessions with Jake. She needed help with her AP Calculus curriculum. Her teacher in high school has good intentions, yet for some reason, cannot seem to actually teach. Calculus is way out of my league. So we called on Jake. He is patient, wise beyond his years, and able to communicate calculus to my daughter in a way that allows her to discover solutions on her own. He is not that much older than my daughter and is completely understanding of her academic needs. She thinks he is exceptional.

"A+" Amazing tutor. Tutored me for Calculus, and it was very clear that he knew his stuff. He was very patient and was willing to work at my pace, while being very flexible with his hours. Due to an unfortunate hiring mishap, my "Professor" lacked the ability to properly teach Calculus (or even answer her own questions). If not for this man, I would have failed my course outright. His knowledge and ability to explain every single point of a problem was quintessential to the A I have now. Thank you so much, Jake.
- Nelson C. from New York, NY
My 17 year old works with Jake on Calculus. In his words, Jake is really helpful, really knows his math, has great tricks, and explains things really well. In the mom's opinion, Jake is wonderfully patient, super-responsible, on time and good with communications. He was a great find!
