ExperienceNOTE: I will be available for private tutoring for the upcoming Spring 2014 Semester. Please stay posted for any updates regarding private tutoring hours due to my work schedule for Spring 2014. I apologize for not being able to respond to all of the messages in Fall 2013 due to the heavy course load I was undergoing, but I will be available throughout this Spring 2014.
I am currently certified as an advanced/level II tutor by Valencia Community College. My training consisted of helping the student identify his or her best learning abilities through visual, auditorial, or both. I am a huge believer in positive motivation. I currently work as a tutor at the Math Support Center at Valencia Community College - East Campus.
I've taken the SAT and ACT. I did well on both and now that I am in higher level math classes I have absolutely no trouble helping on the math portion nor the science portion as long as you have any preparation work you would like me to go through with you. I've made B's and higher in Biology 1 and 2, Chemistry 1, Chemistry 2, Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Business Calculus, Calculus 1.
Any of the chemistry classes are not preferred but if you would like help in those subjects, then I am willing to help you. The only thing I require is the book, your work, and your willingness to learn! Solutions manual is also very helpful.
Tutoring is a passion. I was once a student that never went to class nor payed any attention to my future. When I finally got my act together and decided that knowledge is the foundation to a brighter and happier future, I wanted to help others to realize it as well. I take pride in my job and try my best not only to help the student realize great study habits to improve their own grades, but to overall do better in any subject they choose to excel at. I've been everything from a server to a Disney lifeguard but tutoring is the first job that actually gives me satisfaction towards giving others a brighter future!
HobbiesI love the beach, wakeboarding, surfing, skimming, MW3, lifting, science, math, art, guitar, bass, drums. I'm half Italian and Half Japanese and was born in Australia. I would like to see myself as a successful Bioengineer and to achieve my Executive MBA in the future.

Jack has been a critical factor in my brother's successful return to school. After having had to take time off, we were worried that the hiatus, coupled with my brother's learning disability, would have made the transition back to school extremely difficult. We were not expecting to find someone like Jack. What attracted us most to him was his teaching philosophy of helping students identify their best learning strategies. This is the type of perspective necessary when working with students who require extra patience and understanding. As of now, Jack has been working with my brother for a semester. Throughout that time, my brother would tell us that Jack would patiently explain concepts (more than once or twice!) and provide him hints/techniques to help him remember. He completed his first course and earned an A! We were thrilled. We plan to continue to use Jack in the future.
