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. I am a chemist by training and by trade.

I want to encourage group sessions. I charge $10 per hour for each additional student beyond the first. For example, I charge $70 per hour for two students and $80 for three students.
Jeffrey was very helpful and I enjoyed how he was outgoing so it was easy to talk to him and ask him all of my questions. He was also very patient and understanding.
Jeffrey is always patient and explains topics so thoroughly. Helps student to understand concepts thoroughly which translates into excellent foundation and test results. Thank you!
My son is learning a lot from Jeffrey and is feeling confident about geometry for the first time this semester. We are very happy to have found such a great tutor!
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 and really tries to accommodate schedule needs. Very happy to have him as a resource.
When I contacted Jeffrey to tutor my daughter in chemistry she was earning a F in the class - since she started working with Jeffrey - she has earned 2 B+ on her most recent tests and has brought her F up to a C - very pleased.
Jeffrey is an exceptional Chemistry tutor. He is an expert in this subject and knows how to teach his students in a way that he/she can really understand it. It is evident by how he teaches and his professionalism that he is an experienced tutor. He comes to the lesson very well prepared with his iPAD in hand, ready to provide his students with the necessary materials to enhance the lesson. He is extremely responsive and flexible, willing to accommodate same day requests without issue. I am so impressed with Jeffrey, I can see why he has been consistently rated as excellent, because he truly is a "superior" tutor.
Jeffrey had to do a packed first lesson for my daughter in a limited amount of time and was VERY helpful to her. I will be using him again! Thanks!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
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.
