Jason S.


Jason graduated from Cornell University where, among less important things, he learned how to snowboard (winters seem to last nine months up in Ithaca) and how to hike through gorges (in the three months that remained). He graduated summa cum laude with a BS in civil engineering and an MEng in structural engineering. During his career as a structural engineer, he had the opportunity to design high-rise buildings all over the world, and decided to expand his business knowledge by obtaining his MBA at MIT Sloan. He is currently a management consultant at Deloitte.

Jason is extremely passionate about teaching, and his passion shines through with the students he tutors. He has always been interested in teaching: serving as a teaching assistant at Cornell and MIT, mentoring underprivileged students in entrepreneurship, and lecturing as an Adjunct Professor at Columbia. Jason enjoys helping students with academic subjects such as math, finance, economics, chemistry, and physics, and after scoring a 780 on his GMAT in preparation for business school, he has developed a comprehensive set of tips and tricks to help students perform better on standardized tests as well. Jason has coached dozens of students in SAT, GRE and GMAT, as well as applying to business school, helping them to exceed their own expectations.

    "What I needed from a tutor was both encouragement--for my attitude--and clarity--for my skills. Jason was the perfect fit for my needs. He was patient, accommodating, and supportive, and the ease with which he approached the process helped relax me and made me feel like achieving the score I wanted was, in fact, possible."

    "Jason was very organized and patient in his approach. He always made sure I completely understood his lessons before we would move on to new topics. Jason made sure I got rid of old habits and used the new techniques he taught me."

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "I worked with Jason during the early strategizing stages of my MBA admissions process, and during the later interview preparation stages. Jason was amazing throughout the entire journey – he helped me figure out the best narrative for my personal pitch (which I was extremely satisfied with) and refine the language I was using in both my resume and my interviews. The latter was invaluable for me in particular, since as a non-traditional applicant, I wasn’t too familiar with the business speak that MBA programs expect you to be fluent in. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as an MBA strategy and interview coach."

    "Jason worked with me throughout my business school career and tutored me in Finance, economics and accounting. Not only is he flexible from a timing perspective but he is uniquely able to explain anything to anyone. He was always able to determine what my “roadblock” was, and figure out how to get me past it. He is the best tutor I have ever had and he is, literally, a genius. Love him and would recommend him to anyone."

    "Jason was able to accurately articulate the questions that would most probably be asked based on my profile, and to my positive surprise they were exactly the questions asked of me!"
