My name is Jeff, and I am a longtime resident of Westchester Country. I graduated from Horace Greeley High School and attended the University of Virginia, earning a BA in Economics. Throughout my academic career, I excelled in math, scoring a 100 on my Algebra and Geometry Regents exams.
I've always enjoyed teaching and working with kids, gaining experience as an instructor for Heald College in Hayward, CA in addition to my regular day job (I've been an executive recruiter for over 20 years). About 5 years ago I began tutoring with a private center, helping students on a one-on-one basis to improve their scores in the Math SAT. My strength really is in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry (and everything leading up to these) with a particular emphasis in Math SAT and PSAT strategies and tutoring.
As my day job demanded more time, I stopped working with the private center, though my interest always remained in tutoring. Now I have a nephew in 11th grade who I have been helping, and a daughter in 9th. I feel I relate very well to teenagers, can explain things in simple terms and focus on strategies for studying and test taking that really help. I'm patient and straightforward, with plenty of life experience to back up my motivational attitude.
