"Hi. I’m Jacob and I’m currently a student at Brigham Young University. I’m a senior studying mechanical engineering expecting to graduate in April of 2023. I am a firm believer that anyone can be taught anything, that they only require the right type of teaching. Tutoring provides the opportunity to figure out how each student learns and tailor the learning environment to their needs. I want to give my students the type of instruction that will help them to learn on their own and develop healthy learning habits. My goal for each student is that they can enjoy learning.

For the past 3 years I have served as translator for a local agricultural supply company in a heavily Latino part of town. I also have lots of experience in math. I am currently taking Calculus II, having mastered Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus I. I use math on a daily basis in my major of mechanical engineering and I am well acquainted with any type of problem thus far in my education.

I am in the middle of my major in mechanical engineering and I have to use a lot of math. I have taken all of the math classes leading up to Calculus II and I am very familiar with algebra and trigonometry as well. Math can be frustrating and at times its easy to want to give up, but I believe that it can be learned when done carefully and with the right in" less...
