University of Colorado Denver (Psychology)
Hello there! My name is Jeff, and I'm a proud Colorado native and avid learner. I will teach you to better understand your learning style and how to create cognitive tools which will aid you with studying efficacy and comprehension. I aim to give you what you need to succeed without a tutor. I'm highly adaptable and can easily adjust to unique learners, and truly enjoy the challenge!
I have excelled at nearly every subject I have studied and graduated with a 3.9 GPA from High School and a 3.8 GPA from CU Denver with honors and a degree in psychology. As part of my degree program, I participated in unique internships, one of which focused on the biological and psychological implications of health (or health psychology). I have also coached high school speech and debate, and many of my teams qualified for nationals on a regular basis.
Because of my experience as a psychology student, I have spent many hours researching and studying principals of learning and how to improve memory. This, in addition to my debate experience (which requires the ability to construct speeches on the fly from key points an oppositional speaker raises) lends me the tools necessary to impart effective study skills/habits which can aid you in any subject.
In addition, I have tutored in k-12 math, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and science. In college, I tutored in the areas of writing, psychology, neurology, immunology, anatomy, and the like. All of my students have seen a vast improvement in their grades after beginning instruction with me.
Currently I own and manage a small business in Denver, Colorado. We specialize in manufacturing tools and accessories. I also have experience as a district manager of a retail sales company, wherein I managed eight stores simultaneously. From these activities, I have drawn practical experience in business management, business organization, business writing, negotiation and proposal writing.
I will drive to almost any location for an additional fee. Appointments must be cancelled 24 hours beforehand (or rescheduled within that time) to avoid payment. I am professional, respectful, and I work well with all ages and demographics.
I look forward to working with your and meeting your individual needs. Thanks for reading this wall of text, and have a fantastic day! Hello there!

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.
I have tutored Algebra 1 and Pre-Algebra on and off for the past eight years. I have tutored over fifteen high school students through this time-frame, all with immense improvement in their comprehension of core concepts, mechanics, and the like. I am currently working with students facing the most current curriculum, and therefore am capable of teaching modern methods for quadratics, algebra tiles, factoring, plotting, and the like.
I played piano for over ten years myself. While my technique and playing abilities were mostly self-taught, I was instructed by several teachers over the years in musical theory. In the past I have tutored a few students in piano, but only as beginners.
In high school, I competed in team policy debate, an academic sport which requires copious amounts of public speaking. I placed in finals at multiple events, and I won two spots at nationals two years in a row.
When I graduated high school, I taught speech and debate as an alumni assistant coach, instructing more than twenty high school students simultaneously. I worked with them in every part of speech preparation and delivery - from writing original oratories to interpretive works, I had experience teaching diverse styles. While I taught, I also competed in parliamentary debate at the collegiate level.
My experiences make me a highly qualified public speaking tutor, and I can't wait to offer these abilities to the WyzAnt community!
I believe I have the ability to impart good study skills due to a multiplicity of factors.
First and foremost, I am a good student. I graduated CU Denver with a 3.8 GPA. I have developed study habits myself that have aided me in achieving good grades. I can pass these habits along because I have also taught in multiple settings; I coached high school debate as an alumni, I've tutored for hundreds of hours throughout the past ten years, and I have helped teach classes to home schooled children in local home school communities.
Second, my degree was in psychology, and I have studied the concept of learning in great detail. I know how to utilize skills such as mnemonic devices, memory maps/architecture, and the like. I have also studied relevant research on effective study habits - such as how often to study, when to study, what environment to study in, how to develop self-teaching practices, etc.
Third, and last, I was a competitor in high school for team policy debate and competed at nationals on two occasions. After graduation, I instructed as an alumni assistant coach in an array of speech events and debate styles. The point of this being that debate requires a sharpened ability to pay attention to, and remember, important details from a speaker's presentation, and then adapt to them on the fly. These are quintessential tools for active learning in the classroom, and therefore critical to active studying.
I believe that with these relevant experiences I am able to create a full, well-rounded repertoire of study skills that will aid any student in any subject.
