ExperienceI've completed my Bachelors of Science degree from Michigan State University in Human Biology. At MSU, I placed on the Dean's List multiple times, was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, attended a medical mission to Honduras, and conducted ovarian cancer research as apart of numerous extracurricular activities. I was appointed as a teaching assistant for Cell and Molecular Biology at MSU and have over 300 hours of teaching experience in lab and lecture settings. As a TA and private tutor, I specialized in one on one sessions with individual students. I've also completed a Masters of Science degree in Basic Medical Sciences from Wayne State University. I'm currently a third year student at the CMU College of Medicine earning my Medical Doctorate. I'm working in Saginaw, Michigan completing my hospital rotations at Covenant and St. Mary's Hospitals.
My 8+ years of tutoring and teaching experience date back to my days as high school student. I challenged myself with an accelerated curriculum that included AP Calculus, AP Biology, and AP US Government, which prepared me for success in college and beyond. My expertise and background in a wide range of high school, college, and graduate level courses helps students excel in the classroom and in their own studies. Moreover, my study tips and personal advice gives students the competitive edge needed to score high on AP tests or entrance exams such as the ACT, SAT, MCAT, GRE, or DAT.
My educational background in upper level medical sciences and my experience teaching biology, chemistry, math, and writing will prepare you or your child for success in their current studies and beyond. I also have experience coaching and tutoring younger students within my church and community. My patience and ability to connect with younger students will make learning fun, enjoyable, and relieve the burden, stress, or frustration that comes along with learning.
My teaching techniques place an emphasis on structure and repetition and break concepts down into their simplest and most coherent forms. I will go beyond teaching material to incorporate advanced study and time management skills that focus on balance and diligence to form a student's work ethic. It's my goal to deliver the highest quality tutoring to help you or your child reach their full potential.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or email to meet or discuss a plan to help you reach your goals. I am committed to understanding how you learn best and will adapt my teaching style to fit your individual learning perspective, guaranteed or your session is free!
HobbiesIt's my passion to help individuals excel in their education and impact lives through the advancement of medicine. My interests include sports, music, technology, and community service.

Jacob helped me prepare for my MCAT. Even though he was not familiar with the new Psych/Soc portion on the exam, he was very helpful with the Chem/Physics, CARS and Bio/Biochem sections. He did not just help me going over content I needed to review, he also helped me organizing my ideas and making study plans in order to improve my test taking strategies. Most importantly, he helped me with getting mentally ready and building self confidence for such a physically and mentally-draining exam. He constantly stressed on having the right attitude and mind set, which helped me a lot. Jacob was an amazing tutor. He is brilliant and always willing to help. I would recommend him for anyone who needs help with the MCAT!
Jacob was my daughter's AP Biology tutor. We were fortunate to find him on University Tutor. He is nothing short of outstanding. He has mastery of the subject material, and clearly enjoys teaching. He helped my daughter effectively navigate her way through some of the more complex subject matter in this course. Jacob has a keen sense of his student's level of understanding and delivers the material flawlessly at a level that is appropriate for the learner; without over-simplifying or over-complicating the material, and delivering it in an un-intimidating style. He draws effectively from his previous experiences as a group and individual tutor/teaching assistant at MSU. His visual approach using a whiteboard helps cement the material in the students mind. He is very dependable, and flexible. He was also willing to take calls and help outside tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend Jacob.
