University Graduate with a Bachelor's Degree majoring in Earth and Environmental Sciences with a minor in English looking to tutor in any related subjects!

Hello! I am a 24 year old American male who graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I majored in Earth & Environmental Sciences and minored in English and am passionate about both subjects. I recently moved to Hobart and would love to gain some more tutoring experience before I return to the States to pursue a master's degree in education. I am patient, easy-going, and friendly. Most of all I love to help people any way that I could.

I'm negotiable!

I teach school english, reading, creative writing, literature, test prep. For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, year 11-12, TAFE, undergraduate, diploma/certificate, postgraduate, phd.
I give lessons in person, at the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Jacob’s an excellent teacher! In high school, I was really struggling with Algebra. He helped me clearly understand the concepts and was instrumental in me passing the class. I learned a lot. Highly recommend!

Jacob has helped me edit my essays many times throughout my years at university. He is extremely helpful and offers tips for improvement whenever he can. I trust his opinions and am very thankful for all of his help!

Jacob's Experience

University of Illinois at Chicago Writing Center Tutor-
Too many students to count throughout four years, all needed help developing their writing skills. Many of which returned to show me their improved grades and a smile on their face.

Private tutoring- I started tutoring in my teenage years when I noticed I excelled in my English Literature/Writing courses. My pupils were mainly family-friends of whom I was already acquainted with or soon became good friends with.
