About Jeffrey

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

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.

After just two sessions with Jeffrey my daughter feels more confident about her chemistry assignments. She finds the sessions very beneficial and that is great feedback from a teenager! In addition, Jeffrey is a lovely guy and has gone out of his way to be flexible about meeting times.
