Right after graduating from college with a degree in Junior High Science teaching, I taught high school science for ten years; which included the following subject areas: Physical Science, General Science, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I enjoyed lesson preparation and providing hands-on activities to help students remember topics. I then pursued a Science career, which provided me opportunities to perform training, create standard operating procedures, and experience new learning opportunities for myself. As I still had a passion for teaching, when I saw an opportunity to tutor at MCC, I gladly applied and was accepted. I became a CRLA certified tutor with positive evaluations. This opened up an opportunity to become an adjunct teacher at MCC in the subject of science. During this time, I also became interested in Teaching English as a second language. I received training, and have been a volunteer teacher for basic and beginner's level ESL. I am looking forward to working with any age student who wants to learn Science or basic ESL.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Jeff as a tutor and as a person. He was cooperative with scheduling and was always on time. He was always prepared for the lesson and questions that I had each and every session. He is personable, easy to understand, and has a lot of knowledge in the Chemistry field. I would definitely recommend him to any student in need of a tutor. I know that if I need help again that he will be the first person I ask upon. 5 stars!
My son worked with Jeff to pick up his high school physics grade. Jeff was very accommodating of our schedule and study location. After trying three previous physics tutors, Jeff was the first to truly help my son. He knows physics and he knows how to teach it as well. I would hire him again in a split second... my son got an A for the year in physics. Jeff equals results. Thanks.
Jeff was amazing with my daughter. She was having problems in chemistry with a low C as a grade and brought it up to an A by 3rd and 4th quarter. She ended up with an A as a semester grade. Jeff was very helpful and was easy to get a hold of. He was able to work with my daughter and her ever changing schedule. I would highly recommend him.
Jeff really took interest in helping my son accomplish the best grade possible in Chemistry. I wish I would have contacted him sooner!!
I would have not passed my class without the sessions with Jeff. He found outside resources for me that could help me learn concepts. He gave me multiple websites based on the topics that I was going over in class that were extremely helpful. He is very patient, and helped me break down concepts so that I could understand. He is also very approachable where I felt comfortable to ask about any confusing topics. I highly recommend him!
Jeff was a great and patient tutor. My son's grades came up two grade points. We is very knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommend.
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.
Even though I have not taught an Algebra class, the Science classes that I have taught depend on the methods used in Algebra. My most recent science class was at Metro Comm College where basic algebra skills were taught as part of the curriculum.
Even though I have not taught an Algebra 2 class, the Science classes that I have taught depend on the methods used in Algebra 2. My most recent science class was at Metro Comm College where basic algebra skills were taught as part of the curriculum.
I taught three years of High School Biology and tutor a few students at a local community college.
I taught high school chemistry for nine years using demonstrations and lab work to help clarify the concepts. I tutored several students in various college chemistry courses, and I received a certificate of appreciation for my efforts in tutoring.
I was teacher for several years and I taught what is age appropriate material. I also recognize that students in the elementary level need more hands-on activities to help make the concepts concrete.
Back in 2002 I took Excel Level 1 to improve my skills. Since, I worked in companies that always kept current with updates. I am now using Excel 2010 to maintain inventories and to populate data.
I have taught this course over the years of teaching and have tutored in its main subjects(Physics and Chemistry). This subject is one of my favorite because it highlights the more interesting aspects of science.
Physics is one of my favorite subjects, and one that I taught at the high school level for 9 years. I am able to bring it down to basic steps since this is what I did in my Physical Science courses. I used hands-on labs and performed many demonstrations to help students understand the concepts.
