My Name is Jeff B. I am a graduate student here in Greeley Colorado.I have taught General I and II,Organic I and II,And Allied Health chemistry I and II since 1991 at U.T.S.A (University of Texas at San Antonio)in San Antonio. I taught the labs there but since the students had trouble with some of the lecture teachers, I have taught the lecture in the labs as well.I also was the general coordinator of the Allied Health Chemistry department for 2 years at U.T.S.A. In addition to this I taught at St. Philips College for over 2 years in General and Allied Health Chemistry I lecture and lab as well as General II and Organic I lab. As a matter of fact my student from 1991 in Chemistry was a professor at St. Philips College when I taught there. Also the Pharmacist at my Walmart in San Antonio is my student from 8 years ago.

I have tutored Chemistry,Math up to Calculus and Physics both privately and with tutoring companies as well as at St. Philips College now for more than 18 years.I use funny pneumonic aids to help you remember the concepts and also I will apply what you are studying to real life applications that are of special interest to you.For example I do extra credit fun murder mysteries for my students that apply to chemistry.When I worked with upward bound students I did a James Bond theme where we learned to write with invisible ink.Recently I played Spiderman for fifth graders and taught them how to do bonding "my name is Bond!Chemical Bond!"in such a fun molecule as formic acid(Red ant bites) such as was seen in the movie Indiana Jones and the crystal skull.

I also have my masters in Chemistry as well as Theology and have done Bible studies and missions in Mexico for years.Now I am presently studying for my MCAT to become a Medical Doctor in probably about 2 years as the Lord leads.
Presently I am teaching the General II Chemistry labs at UNCO(University of Northern Colorado)and pursuing my doctorate in chemical education so I can write chemistry,physics,math,and possibly anatomy and physiology textbooks from the students perspective by developing a website after my doctorate is complete whereby any students across the world can contact me to give their views of what should go into a textbook!Presently I can do lewis dot structures for fifth graders and I can show easier ways of doing just about any science or math by my +/_ system.For example I had one student at UTSA who was getting a C in Organic who got an A after using my +/_ system.I also have many student references whom you may contact to see what kind of tutor I am! Finally never be afraid to ask me any questions especially why and how something works.I do not know all the answers but I can use the internet to try to answer your questions to the best of my ability. Do not be afraid to ask because the only difference between you and me is I am confused at a higher level.Look forward to working with all of you in the Greeley, Loveland,and Fort Collins Areas.

Well God Bless,Jeff

ACT Math

I have tutored the ACT for 5 or 6 years now since it is so much like the SAT - it just has more math, including combinations and permutations. I would even show the students when they had a hard problem to solve to start with answer C and if it is wrong since the format of these tests usually goes from smallest number to largest they would know which way to go either smaller or greater thus eliminating C and say A and B if the answer by ball-parking was larger than C.

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra 1 now for over 18 years and currently tutor the GED and have had many graduates. In the past I tutored math up to calculus, chemistry as well as physics at Saint Philips College in San Antonio, on my own, and with WyzAnt with a 98.8% record with 78 students.

Algebra 2

I have extensively, for over 15 years, helped students in algebra II, Logs, and trigonometry. I tutored them on WyzAnt and at St. Phillips College in San Antonio with excellent results. I also am a professional educator and have many tricks to make the math easy and fun to understand.


My name is Jeff.I have tutored the ASVAB in the mathematics section for several years at Saint Philips' college here in San Antonio.I can easily help on the science or math portions of the ASVAB and I can even show you easier ways to do the math as well as how to prove the answer is right.Please feel free to contact me so we can set up an appointment!Finally I am a professor at U.T.S.A. in Chemistry and have taught there since 1991.


Bible Studies

I have my masters of divinity from southwestern seminary and while there to the glory of Jesus Christ I had 2 home Bible studies in Fort Worth and Dallas.I also have taught sunday school for many years and taught the Bible in Mexico for 7 years!
My purpose in helping you with Bible study is to point you to Jesus ,never look to me for I am not perfect,so that you can in your own unique beautiful way have a deep abiding loving relationship with him!If you need marriage counseling look at Philipians 2 which talks about oneness.Finances the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30.Here is an application write down all your talents the after prayer go to the internet and look for jobs that go with each talent!Never be anxious Matthew 6:25-34.Simply count all the animals outside they do not have credit cards nor a bank account nor life insurance etc. and I am not saying these things are not important but if your heavenly Father provides for them how much more will He provide for His Children?So do not be afraid!A childlike faith is easy to have!Let me show you.When you go to a new restaurant you sit down and eat the food yet you donot know the cook!When you fly you relax and sit back you do not know the pilot!So if we can entrust ourselves to imperfect men how much more than can we trust our heavenly Father who has infinite Love for us in Jesus Christ our Lord!!!God richly bless you.See Matthew 11:25-30.
God Richly Bless you in Christ's Love!
