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.

Very knowledgeable

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.

Terrific Tutor

Our daughter was falling behind in her AP Chemistry class. Jeffrey did a great job in bringing her up to date and making her feel more confident in her studies!

Andrew, 24 lessons with Jeffrey

Patient and very nice

He was a very professional and nice tutor. They did spend much of their time. On a difficult problem and he did offer not to charge us for the session. They continued to other parts of her assignments and seemed good. It was a late night session and to be fair, my daughter was tired.

Mickey, 1 lesson with Jeffrey

Very thorough and helpful

Jeffrey worked on reduction of agents. He spent a great deal of time going through examples and confirming that the material was understood. He was great!
