Hello my name is Jeff and I've been teaching since 1992. Through the years I have been involved with many facets

of the educational setting from mainstream public schools to private institutions. My specific certification is

Education Specialist with mild/moderate designation and ELA competencies. This means I am eligible to teach English

Language Learners and individuals with learning handicaps. I am certified for levels K-12 but prefer to teach K-6 as

these are the majority of my teaching experiences. My proficiency covers all elementary subjects particularly read-

ing, math, social studies and science, with reading tutoring as my strongest subject. Although I have a very relaxed

attitude I demand effort with a velvet hammer. The approach I use is one of support and encouragement to foster the

student's desire to continue even at the toughest of moments. I attempt to incorporate the interest of the student

into the various lessons so as to create a deeper committment to the subject at hand.
