I am a chemist by training and by trade. I use the fundamental concepts of chemistry every day. I also have three years of experience teaching undergraduate chemistry while I was a graduate student at UC Irvine.
My style of teaching emphasizes concepts and reasoning. The sciences can be overwhelming if you dive in head first, especially if you intend to memorize everything. But if you focus on a handful of basic concepts, you will be able to solve almost any problem. Furthermore, I know a great many real life examples of the applications of concepts of chemistry. These examples are very helpful in reinforcing the lesson in that they allow the student to see the concept in action.
My degree is in Inorganic Chemistry, which I think is the best background to have for teaching general and high school chemistry. I need to directly apply the fundamental concepts of chemistry every day at my job. So not only are the concepts fresh in my mind, I have looked at them from every possible angle.
I have three years of experience teaching general chemistry on the college level at UCI. I have logged over 200 hours (about 100 through WyzAnt) tutoring high school and college chemistry. I worked with a broad range of students. Some wanted to improve from a B to an A or get a 5 on the AP exam, and some were completely lost. Regardless of your situation, I am completely confident I can help you achieve your goals.
I have played poker with modest regularity for about 8 years. I have played in and beaten the small stakes games (i.e. no more than $300 buy-in) at Foxwoods, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles as well as online and at numerous home games. I have experience playing every major form of poker from Hold 'em to Triple Draw Low Ball. In all, I estimate my lifetime earnings of between $3000 and $3500.
In addition to my experience, I have a collection of 14 books about poker. I find books by Sklanksy and Malmuth to be particularly useful. Being a science nerd at heart, I like to teach and discuss the game from a mathematical perspective. Every decision is based on estimating the probabilities and expected values.

Very helpful! — My teen's AP Chem grade has much improved since we've been having Jeffrey tutor. It's been especially helpful to use the syllabus and have him pre-teach the lessons; then the class lessons seem to make more sense and we're a step ahead instead of trying to catch up. When there's nothing new in Chemistry class, Jeffrey has been helpful in tutoring Physics as well! He's quickly responsive to calls a ...
