About Jeff


Bio

Hello, my name is Jeff. I graduated from UCLA in 2015 with the intention of pursuing medical school. After graduation, I began tutoring and fell in love with studying and teaching math. I have been tutoring ever since, and I even taught Geometry and Algebra 2 at a private high school from 2020-2021. I will be returning to graduate school this Fall to pursue a Master's degree in applied math!

Hello, my name is Jeff. I graduated from UCLA in 2015 with the intention of pursuing medical school. After graduation, I began tutoring and fell in love with studying and teaching math. I have been tutoring ever since, and I even taught Geometry and Algebra 2 at a private high school from 2020-2021. I will be returning to graduate school this Fall to pursue a Master's degree in applied math!

I absolutely love tutoring because it allows me the opportunity to find out exactly where students are struggling or misunderstanding so that I can specifically tailor my explanations based on their needs. I do my best to make my tutoring sessions a safe space to not know answers and to ask questions that may be hard to ask in the classroom. During my sessions, there are no bad questions, and there is never any shame when you don't know an answer.

I have a strong understanding of even the toughest concepts in math, and I also have a number of years of experience in explaining those topics. Most of my experience is in tutoring Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB, and AP Calculus BC, however I recently finished courses in Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, and Multivariable as well! I am incredibly patient, and I like trying to explain the same topic in multiple ways to help students to connect.

If you're looking for a patient, relatable tutor to help you step your math game up to the next level, I'd love to work with you!

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring Algebra 2 for the past 6 years and have helped many students to improve their grades and their confidence. I specialize in helping students to connect with the "why" of math, not just the how. If you're just looking for quick answers, we won't be a good fit, but if you're working hard and really want to understand concepts in math, I'm your guy! I am patient and easygoing, so an online session is a great place to ask any questions you may be too intimidated to ask during your normal class time.
Calculus,

Calculus

I love working with students in Calculus. If you're looking for a tutor to help you to prepare for finals in Calculus 1 or Calculus 2, then look no further. I have over 6 years of tutoring experience with Calculus, and I enjoy finding ways to explain concepts intuitively. I've taken Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Calculus 3, and Advanced Calculus, although most of my tutoring experience is with Calculus I/II. If you're trying to end the semester with a strong grade on your final exam, I'd love to help you to prepare!
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have over 6 years of online tutoring experience, and I've helped countless students to grow in their confidence and understanding in Precalculus. As a graduate student, I have a deeper grasp of Precalculus concepts and what they will eventually be used for, and I love to use that understanding to help students to connect to the "why" of the material, not just the "how". If you're just looking for quick answers, we won't be a good fit, but if you're working hard and really want to understand concepts in math, I'm your guy!

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra has been one of my favorite topics in math to study. I have taken both introductory and advanced linear algebra classes with A+ grades in both classes. I am just starting to get my feet wet with tutoring Linear Algebra, but during my time studying, I was able to help a number of my classmates to grow in their understanding of the material we were being taught. If you are interested in Linear Algebra tutoring, look no further! I can offer discounted rates for Linear Algebra, just message for details.

Best Tutor Ever!

Jeff has a gift for teaching and continues to go above and beyond with each lesson for my daughter. She feels comfortable asking any question. He is also a great listener and very intuitive in that he understands her questions even though she is struggling with articulating the concepts she needs help with. Jeff is always one step ahead and kindly guiding Pattie in a path to succeed in calculus. I can feel her confidence improving with each lesson. Thank you Jeff!!!

Jeff continues to be an incredible asset for my daughter’s learning and is helping her fill in the gaps with the calculus concepts that are going to be important for her to pass the AP test. We are so grateful for Jeff’s knowledge and his manner of teaching in that he is helping my daughter improve her confidence and empowering her to study and learn the things she will need to succeed. Words cannot express how grateful we are for Jeff and Wyzant.
