For fun, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, I am very active when it comes to working out and playing sports. I am a huge sports fanatic!

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

The accomplishment that I have achieved as a tutor is helping students be comfortable with the material given to them at school. I think the biggest achievement as a tutor is not only helping students get their grades up but to help students understand the material well enough so they do not have to panic, stress themselves out, or get frustrated. I strive to help students to the best of my abilities to so they are ready to take on any course work that is to come their way!

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

What I enjoy the most about tutoring is the simple fact of helping students understand the course work given to them. We have all gone through an education system where at times learning is hard to comprehend. So I enjoy helping students with their course work so they don’t have to stress themselves out and get frustrated. No one likes that feeling of being stressed and frustrated and if I am able to help a student from feeling that way it becomes something I am very proud of! We are very privileged to be receiving the education that we are and as a tutor I want to make sure students are able to enjoy it!

Tutor is no longer available.

  • Where did you attend school and what school are you currently attending? What degrees do you have and/or are currently working towards?

I am currently a transfer student at Cal Poly Pomona for Aerospace Engineering. I received my Associates in Math & Science at Victor Valley Community College and I am currently working towards my Bachelors in Aerospace Engineer and a minor in Materials Science & Engineering.

  • What cities can you tutor in (i.e. how far can you drive to tutor)?

I am available to tutor in Pomona, Chino, Chino Hills, Upland, La Verne, Walnut, Claremont, and Ontario. Any cities 10-15 miles from Cal Poly Pomona.

  • Are you open to tutoring students via Skype or another online platform?

Unfortunately, I can’t.

  • What are your future career goals?

I enjoy exercising by swimming, jogging, and playing soccer. When it comes to an indoor activity, I like to do puzzles such as Sudoku or a 300-1000 piece puzzles, and I also enjoy playing Dota 2 with my brothers or playing the piano.

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

My first student/client was a fourth grader who had trouble with 4th grade math. After two sessions, I noticed he had trouble reading numbers and working out basic addition in his head. I worked with him by being very repetitive and patient in working out the problems. During the time I was tutoring him, his mother informed me that the school had privately tested him to see if he had a learning disability, so in the process, they had him placed in 3rd grade level math. Even though he was given 3rd grade math problems, he still had trouble interpreting the problems correctly but he did not notice that. It was a strange issue but in the end, I taught him how to double check his work because it was the only way he can notice his mistakes without someone else pointing it out for him. As his tutor, I gave him confidence, patience, and skills that he benefited from using. Even though he had difficulties that were not clear, he ended up improving by at least 10%. Therefore, it shows that anyone is bound to improve if they keep trying despite the challenges.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I enjoy making a difference in a student’s life. As a tutor, we are there to supply skills and goals for the student to achieve. It is very rewarding to see a student achieve a goal that was difficult to begin with.

The Tutoring Solutions Tutor: Jacob Metsker

  • What is your experience as a tutor or teacher?

I spent a considerable amount of time honing my teaching skills at Goal Oriented Academics and Learning Sciences (GOALS) in Palo Alto during the 2014-2015 school year. I started off as a physics tutor and gradually worked my way up to the lead mathematics and sciences instructor for the company. I worked with around 20 students a week, mostly in 1 on 1 sessions, but we had a few study groups (5+ students) on Sunday evenings that were a great success.

Growing up I spent most of my free time as a youth in the Boy Scouts of America. In the Boy Scouts we worked as a group teaching younger members how to advance in their ranks as a boy scout. We all gleaned teaching skills and leadership skills while in the scouts. Even after obtaining my Eagle Scout rank I maintained a teaching role for the youth in my troop for a few years before I headed off to college.

  • What subjects are you best at?

I can tutor Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Algebra I & II, Physics, and Chemistry.

  • What is your schedule like? What days and times are you available to tutor?

I am currently available for tutoring Sunday through Friday 12 pm to 9 pm. Session times vary from 1 to 2 hours. I prefer to schedule sessions 1 to 2 weeks in advance so that all of my students evolving schedules can be accommodated accordingly.

  • Where did you attend school? What degrees do you have?

I attended University of California Riverside and obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Physics in 2007. I also attended California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and obtained my Associate’s degree in Culinary Arts in 2009.

  • What cities can you tutor in (i.e. how far can you drive to tutor)?

I can tutor in Corona, Norco, Chino, Chino Hills, Eastvale, Mira Loma, Riverside, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and Jurupa Valley.

  • Are you open to tutoring students via Skype or another online platform?

I am open to tutoring on Skype. I currently tutor students in Palo Alto via Skype.

  • What are your future career goals?

I am working on obtaining my teaching credential starting in winter of 2016. My goal is to teach mathematics and physics at the high school level, perhaps the junior college level if I end up going back to college to get a masters or phd.

  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

My hobbies include going to the movies on cinematic adventures, reading sci-fi and fantasy fiction novels, backpacking and cooking. I really enjoy cooking for friends and family.

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

Last year I met with a student 4 weeks before the end of the semester, he was in pre-calculus class with a low D, several missing assignments, and a teacher that he didn’t understand. We studied together for 8 hours a week and by the time he finished the semester he raised his grade to an 89%; achieving a 94% on his final exam.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I enjoy when a student is struggling with a concept and then in the middle of the session it just clicks. Their eyes light up and they know exactly how this particular thing works. The satisfaction of helping people understand difficult concepts is just fun for me. Tutoring and teaching academically and in the kitchen have been a passion for me since I can remember.

Yes.

  • What are your future career goals?

My future career goals are to become an elementary school teacher and then a school principal.

  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

My hobbies are playing and coaching soccer, working out, and singing. For fun, I enjoy going to the movies, especially Disney, and exploring new places. 

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

My impactful accomplishment was being able to help my brother and watch him improve in school along with his change of attitude about school. He went from hating school and barely graduating the 8th grade to getting a 3.5 in high school and enjoying school because he finally realized he could do it.

What I enjoy the most is seeing the students become more confident and accomplished in school. I enjoy being able to help the students turn on the light switch to their challenges. I also enjoy bonding with the children and being a support and care for them.
