Great to meet you, I'm Jesse. I'm not exactly your standard tutor. While most will drill you through problems, we will have a conversation, taking the time for you to develop an understanding of each concept from the ground up.
My students don't memorize; instead, they understand. I have extensive experience teaching Math and Statistics, both of which I hold minors in from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, along with my econometrics degree.
I also work with test preparation students; I specialize in helping hundreds of my students improve their exam scores, getting into the colleges of their dreams, and earning valuable scholarships. Personally, I scored a perfect ACT score and in the 99th percentile on the SAT in 2015.
"I've never been good at testing. When I scored a 26 on my first ACT, I though my dreams of getting into a good university and eventually becoming a neurosurgeon were over. Eight weeks later, after Jesse's help, my score improved to a 34! Today, I attend The University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign, Biochemistry Program, on a full-ride scholarship and I've been accepted to a selective mentorship program in medicine." - Alexander K., Summer 2016 Student from Los Angeles, CA.
"My ACT score began at a 27, but after Jesse's help, I was able to score a 33, which helped me get into a top ten Mechanical Engineering program in the country at Purdue University on a full scholarship. After just my Freshman year, I'm working at GE in Louisville, KY on an extremely selective engineering co-op program. I've also been able to start my own business with classmates at Purdue focused on agricultural technology." - Alec F., Spring 2017 Student from Glenview, IL.

Let me just start off by saying Jesse is a great tutor! I found heytutor when I was REALLY struggling in my stats class and he has made me feel so much more confident with my skills. I am a mother and very busy all the time and he is very flexible, patient and understanding around that. He is very passionate about stats and he really wants his students to understand and feel confident. I one hundred percent recommend him!
