  • Jay S., Teacher

    Jay S.


    I have been teaching for about 10 years as a high school math teacher and teaching at Sylvan for about 8 years in total. I've always enjoyed the ability to teach a different age group than I normally do in my day-to-day career, as well as subjects that vary from mine. Working with students who experience success is very rewarding, and I always try to motivate those who need it in different ways. When not teaching, I enjoy watching all four major sports, collecting Transformers, trying new foods, and traveling to new places.
