My name is Jeff. I am twenty-nine years old (going on thirty) and have been teaching since 1999 (mostly music). My main interest are in physics, math, computer science, and music( percussion/bass). I started teaching private drum lessons when I was seventeen and continued until December of 2007 when I decided to take a small sabbatical to gain some other work experience. I have completed 87 credits at Frostburg State University and 17 credits at Allegany College of Maryland. I plan on receiving my Associates Degree from ACM within a year and my Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from FSU within two years.
I am currently employed at ACM in Cumberland as a Computer Lab Technician and also at Commercial Sound and Music in Frostburg. I have also tutored math there as well and have been approved to tutor chemistry and computer science; I went through an online tutoring course provided by the college as a pre-requisite. I have also worked many other jobs including: retail, audio engineer, machinist assistant, pipe organ technician, and a helpdesk technician. My hobbies include: music, audio engineering, computers, photography, physics, meta-physics, psychology, reading, teaching, volunteering, mentoring, carpentry, metalwork, camping, hiking and the outdoors. I also have a wife and we are raising two creative children.
My teaching style varies from student to student. I normally start by assessing the students abilities and try to figure out their particular learning style. From there I review a bit of material to warm up the session and our brains, then start with the material that is troublesome. I then try to warm down the session by reviewing the covered material to spark any other ideas or questions that might have been dormant.
When I was 20, in 2002, I was thinking about joining the Army Reserves. I had not taken my ASVAB test and went to take the test in Pittsburgh at the federal building. The highest score possible is a 97; I took the test on a whim and received a 94. I believe that I could have performed better if the computer screens were of better quality at the time of the test. The test covered many aspects of general knowledge including: Math, Science, Auto Mechanics, Cognitive Ability, and Electronics. My test taking strategy plus my past experience from work, life, and school were the key factors in me receiving the score that I did.
I have been a drummer since fifth grade in elementary school when I was 10 and still continue to play and practice. I began taking private drum lessons at the age of thirteen and continued until I turned 18. I began giving lessons when I was seventeen and taught for nine consecutive years giving lessons to countless students from the tri-state area from ages four to sixty.
In addition, I have also performed in several performing groups. In high school, I tried out for the All County Concert Band and Orchestra for all four years and was consecutively offered a seat in each one. I also performed with the Tri-State Honor Band at Frostburg State University. I was a member of the FSU Jazz Ensemble from 1999 until 2004, a member of the FSU Percussion Ensemble, Marching Band, Concert band, and accompanied many students and faculty in their performances. I was also a member of the Potomac State College jazz band and concert band in Keyser, WV. In addition to the academic performances, I have also performed in the orchestra for several theatrical productions including: Leader of the Pack, The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Working, Godspell, and Grease.
