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!

Methodology

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.

Background

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.

Rates

Travel Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

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!
