About Jeffrey


Bio

I am a graduate of San Francisco State University with a degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I have been tutoring and teaching math and the sciences now for several years. I am passionate about science, and communicating that passion to others.

My teaching strategy is a combination of various elements. I am a big believer in the idea that the best way to learn is to teach. To that end, I ask many questions to encourage the student to teach me what they know...

I am a graduate of San Francisco State University with a degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I have been tutoring and teaching math and the sciences now for several years. I am passionate about science, and communicating that passion to others.

My teaching strategy is a combination of various elements. I am a big believer in the idea that the best way to learn is to teach. To that end, I ask many questions to encourage the student to teach me what they know and to expand their knowledge further. I also believe that topics can often be clarified by simplifying them and building complexity only after the core concept has been grasped. Using these and other techniques with a conversational style of teaching has proven quite successful with my students.

Genetics

To begin with, I earned an A in both genetics and molecular genetics. While still an undergraduate, I was recommended for the Genetics workshop teaching position. This is a class which is taken concurrently with the main course and supplements the instruction. These teaching positions are usually taught only by grad students. I taught the genetics workshop until I graduated.

Great attitude and experience.

Jeffrey, helped our daughter with her college algebra 2. She was very pleased and we booked more time with Jeffrey. We highly recommend Jeffrey.

Philip, 2 lessons with Jeffrey

My daughter improved in AP Biology right away!

Jeffrey is super knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. My daughter is a hard worker, but she has trouble seeing the ‘big picture’ in her AP biology class. Jeffrey is a fantastic help for this, and her tests grades have gone up significantly! We highly recommend Jeffrey and are so thankful we found him!

Kirby, 4 lessons with Jeffrey

Helpful and cheerful tutor with great analogies

Jeffrey helped me with some the parts of the cell and their functions as well as the processes of cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and glycolysis. These topics in specific were harder to grasp for me but I now feel far more confident in these concepts for the AP Bio test.

Fabulous

I had Jeffrey meet with our son who is a sophomore in high school to help him with his Chemistry. With only 1 session, our son already understood the concepts better and got an A on his test!!

Tori, 2 lessons with Jeffrey

Prompt and quick: He knew how to help and got right to with me!

Thank you Jeffrey. I appreciate your flexibility and willingness to dive right in to the material. There is not much more than I can say other than 2 days later I got a 97% on my midterm..

He was taught so much in one lesson.My son came home super confident that he is finally understanding AP biology. He was so excited that he finally understood his course . We will for sure use Jeffrey for the rest of the school year.
