About

Welcome to Jacob’s Math Help Desk for classes at McGill! I’ve been running weekly group tutorials catered specifically to math classes at McGill for 10 years and have helped thousands of McGill students understand the material and succeed in their class.

Beyond the weekly Mastery Lectures that I offer for most math classes that students in management, science and engineering are likely to take, I run weekly “homework sessions” and “study halls” where students can practice problem-solving or work on assignments. For any class, if there is sufficient interest, I will also run WebWork Workshops, Quiz Reviews and Final Exam Mastery Sessions.

My primary goal in teaching is to help students discover the material for themselves, not simply feed them meaningless algorithms for finding answers. Answers are important; however, devoid of meaning and understanding, they will ultimately undermine your success in any university class. I work hard to provide students with everything they will need to master the material and ace their class… and maybe even enjoy themselves a bit along the way! &nd don’t be surprised if some homemade cookies or brownies show up at your session, either!

If you have any questions or would like additional information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me using the contact form below – I’m here to help!

Hope to see you in a session soon!

All the best,

Jacob B.
