Poor tutoring experience.

Please do not schedule tutoring with him. I was charged 120 dollars for a two hour session in first year chemistry and all he did was stare at a textbook and plug random numbers into a calculator. Didn’t learn anything from that session. Do not recommend.

Dr. Jay is the best ochem professor I had and most qualified and experienced one too. He is also the most dedicated teacher out of all. I'm gearing up for taking mcat soon will surely come back to him.
Best tutor I've had in years

Dr. Jay is an amazing tutor that worked closely with me when I needed help in chemistry. He is very familiar with the course material at UBC and was able to help me regain confidence my ability to do chemistry after I had failed a few chemistry courses (prior to working with Dr. Jay). Dr. Jay is very patient and can clearly explain the concepts in different ways that may be easier to understand. If you are looking for a chemistry tutor whether it is to prepare for a upcoming course or for review sessions before midterms and exams, Dr. Jay is your guy!

Dr.Herath is the excellent choice if you are looking for a chemistry tutor. His way of explaining hard concepts with all the the tricky details and also working with me through hard questions helped me recieve an A in chem 233. Perfect tutor for chemistry.

Dr. Jay assisted me with a tough course of Ochem in two months, and throughout the two months, he was both understanding and helpful in helping me understand all the concepts well. He always finds a way to accommodate with the schedules of all his students, and is willing to go beyond and stay overtime to help his students succeed and do well. If it weren't for him and his guidance, I would not have done as well as Ochem! Thank you Dr. Jay!!

Dr Jay took me all the way from Ochem, through two semesters of Biochem, the MCAT and more Ochem, and into medical school. Aside from being a dedicated and hard-working teacher, he is also extremely experienced and knowledgeable of the various academic systems (high school, various local universities, MCAT/medical school applications etc). At UBC he was familiar with the peculiarities of various courses and professors' individual teaching styles and exam habits. He was therefore able to teach both academic content and tailored success strategies. He is also extremely kind and has gone out of his way, through the years, to give me academic and life advice, referrals to other resources and the like. From knowing other students of his I know that he takes a personal interest in his students and can remain a key factor in their success even after he is no longer their tutor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Jay.

Dr. Hearath is not only a great tutor but also a excellent mentor. He helped my son to get in to UBC with a major entrance scholarship. He also effectively guide my son to write his first letter to the editor on very important public health topic related to adolescents. I highly recommend Dr. Hearath not only as a excellent tutor but also as a great mentor.

Dr.Herath's is very caring and reliable individual. He is able to simply the most complicated of concepts, into simple, understandable concepts. Dr.Herath's is easily one of the best tutors out there, and without him I know that I would not have been able to get a Major Entrance Scholarship to UBC and SFU.

Dr. Jay is without a doubt an excellent teacher. The best that I've ever had. I am an athlete and I have absent for many parts of the year so, catching up was always a task. With the easy techniques and way in which Jay taught me the materials in a few hours and guided me to achieve an "A" in all three terms of Chemistry 12. I know that with his help, skill and experience he will continue to assist me and help me succeed. He is also a very easy going, friendly fellow. Also, he will continue to be my tutor in my university endeavors. I highly recommend him for anyone to boost their mark and understand concepts with ease. Thank you very much Jay!

Jay's teaching was solid, and he is excellent at not only helping you grasp the fundamentals of the course taken, but also applying these fundamentals and using them to solve more difficult questions. He also teaches great strategies and shortcuts to help solve difficult questions. I would highly recommend him. (UBC CHEM 233)
An Amazing Chemistry Tutor

Jay is by far one of the best tutors that I’ve ever had. He is knowledgeable and respectful to his students. He really knows how to teach organic chemistry. I finally understand how much effort and time it takes to learn the language of organic chemistry. It’s definitely not an easy course but with Jay’s help and strategies, I was able to learn the material quickly within a short period of time. It is true that he can explain difficult and confusing concepts using simple and understandable terms. He also answers all my questions and he makes sure that I fully understand it before exam time. Although he has a very tight schedule, he always manages to have time with me the day before exams. He even encourages me to do better by coming up with the best solution on how I can prepare for the next exam. With Jay’s encouragement and help, I was able to achieve a final grade in organic chemistry that was beyond my expectations. I’m so thankful to have Jay as my chemistry tutor.

Jay is an amazing tutor! I often have issues with chem and bio, and even when I have lost all hope, he manages to explain it clearly and make me understand. He is very patient and knowledgeable and has many ways of explaining a concept often using simple examples from the real world. It makes science so much more interesting. Also, his schedule is flexible and he always finds time for me when I'm panicking before a big test. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs help in high school or higher level bio and/or chem! Thank you so much for all your help Jay!

I had other tutors before, but Jay did best reviews for biology and chemistry. Now I'm camping and waiting to start my university in a month. I am getting a 20% higher mark now than I ever did before he trained me to learn the subject smarter and take tests with great results.

J is a great tutor. He can teach a new unit from scratch, clearly explain any problems you have, and give you the quickest ways to solve problems. The proof is in the improvement in grades; he helped me bring up my chemistry mark by over 10%. I stopped listening to my teacher in class yet was more caught up than most of my classmates. He saved my chemistry mark.

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Jay as my chemistry & biology tutor for 2 years. His schedule is very flexible in a sense that I didn't have to have classes every week, unlike other tutors. He is also able to squeeze in a lesson or two before a big exam if I still need any extra help. Also, Jay can explain difficult concepts very well and it is very easy to understand the material after his lessons. I highly recommend Jay for those of you that are struggling in chemistry or biology in school.

I had other tutors, but no one can be near Dr.Jay's method of teaching, qualifications and his experience. I was fortunate to have him as my tutor and great councilor too. Made my way to ivy league.
I still get his help time to time.
