Need help with math, language, logic, science, or technology? I'm here for you!

Aloha, friend! My name is Lucas Jarrett, and I’m an online tutor! If I had to characterize my approach to helping people learn in simple terms, I would say that I believe education is a matter of teaching adaptability. The ability to adapt, or the capacity to change, is the fundamental skill of learning all things. We must always be prepared to adopt new ways of being. When we study life, we study the infinite, and when study the infinite, our mindsets must be similar, or else we will not see everything that we could have seen. To realize that learning is the art of changing is to begin learning everything more easily. My primary goal is to help my students see and apply this awareness when studying anything they hope to do well. I have professional experience teaching arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, statistics, logic, algorithms, philosophy, physics, biology, history, psychology, music, billiards, writing, research, literature, English, Java, Python, HTML, CSS, SQL, and more. Furthermore, I’m happy to offer insight into cognitive habits that often bring academic trouble, such as perfectionism, procrastination, arrogance, inattention, hyperactivity, and anxiety. In any case, I always strive to inspire the infinite sort of learning that enables all extraordinary knowledge. I tutor many subjects not listed here, so feel free to ask about anything. I like interesting projects sometimes! 🙂
