About Jeff


Bio

With over 20 years of experience teaching multiple subjects in both public and private schools, I am highly qualified to help any student succeed. I understand and appreciate that young people have different learning styles, and that rather than being treated the same as others, students should be treated and valued for who they are as individuals and how they learn as a unique person. Thus, I tailor my teaching to each student based on how they learn best.

With over 20 years of experience teaching multiple subjects in both public and private schools, I am highly qualified to help any student succeed. I understand and appreciate that young people have different learning styles, and that rather than being treated the same as others, students should be treated and valued for who they are as individuals and how they learn as a unique person. Thus, I tailor my teaching to each student based on how they learn best.

Learning occurs when someone understands information to a greater degree than they did before, and that's what I do- I help people understand material better and understand how to improve their skills and build upon what they learned previously. I guarantee that I can help you or your student succeed whilst providing a learning environment that is relaxed, safe, and fun (when possible).

I have over 20 years of experience teaching Language Arts, including developing the curriculum for and co-directing the highly successful WriteNow! academic writing camps and for the expository and creative writing courses for the International Leadership Academy. My students have gone on to be highly successful in top colleges, including one student who is currently in the top 15% of her class at UC Berkeley!

I am a graduate of the International Percussion Academy, and have studied with such legendary percussion instructors as Tom Float and Pete Sapadin (from Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps), Jim Campbell (of the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps), Chuck Silverman, Lance Delgado, Glen Sobel (currently Alice Cooper's drummer), and 3 time snare champion Rob Carson. I have marched in many top ensembles including: Velvet Knights, Colts, CSUN Matador Band, Santa Ana Winds, and Valley Regiment. My students have successfully auditioned for many top groups, and have gotten into such prestigious music programs such as Cal State Long Beach, Chapman, and the Boston Conservatory of Music. I am an active studio musician and am currently the drummer and percussionist for the progressive rock band Maxwell's Demon.

Since I respect students so much and have such a passion for helping people improve and grow to their potential, I believe that I am a great match for most potential students. Thus, I encourage you to reach out to me if you need help... no task or situation is too small! I would love to hear about your particular situation and see if I can be of assistance. Even if my schedule is full, I can almost always find time to meet and do a probationary lesson to see if we can work together well. Feel free to contact me anytime!
