Jason Turetsky is a private tutor and math specialist, focusing on standardized tests including the ACT, SAT, ISEE, and GRE. Jason first began helping others improve their test scores after he scored a perfect score on the math section of the SAT in high school. Since then, he has worked with students of all ages, both individually and in the classroom, to transform their test scores from a source of anxiety to a point of pride.
Jason received his B.A. at Princeton University from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and earned his M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
After completing his Master’s degree, Jason remained in London where he managed an American test preparation company that specialized in admissions consulting for students in British high schools applying to American universities. In this role, he also taught SAT classes at some of London’s most prestigious high schools and conducted individual tutoring for ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and British A levels and GCSE exams.
Upon returning to the U.S., Jason served as Political Advisor to the Deputy Consul General at the Israeli Consulate in New York and then Assistant Director of the Research Center at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a civil rights organization with global reach. In 2016, Jason began focusing on education consulting full-time.
Jason has worked with My Learning Springboard in various capacities since 2011, tutoring a range of middle and high school subjects (including math from 6th grade through Calculus) and offering standardized test preparation, college admission consulting, writing coaching, and executive function coaching. He also is a co-editor of My Learning Springboard’s ACT and SAT curriculum and provides instructional coaching to support other tutors.
With passion and expertise honed in almost 15 years of working in education, Jason tailors his teaching methods to each student’s individual needs, ensuring they successfully set and accomplish goals while also enjoying the learning process. No matter which subject he is teaching, Jason prides himself on his ability to mentor, motivate, and inspire students as they develop the conceptual understanding and confidence that foster success in and beyond the classroom.
When Jason is not demystifying math, the college application process, or another subject with his students, he enjoys walking miles exploring New York City’s neighborhoods.
