About Jeff

I have been a teacher for over 20 years. The most important ingredient to any tutoring session is to honor and recognize the individuality of the student. The second important ingredient is for the tutor to have the passion to ignite learning. I believe in both. I have taught ESL and English and Literature and Literacy (Writing), and within these studies the student has a remarkable and unique opportunity to explore his or her own world, beliefs, and values. All of these contribute to create success. Learning and tutoring do not happen in a vacuum. Often I teach across curricula to show the student that what is learned in math or English or science or history is also used and explored in our area of academia.

As a musician and a published writer, I have a great love for the beauty of sound in both an instrument and in the spoken word. Poetry, often, is a dreaded, illogical genre that most students avoid to their detriment. I bring them into that world with a new understanding. I also emphasize a discipline with vocabulary and reading which strengthens a student's ability to grasp concepts.

I am fluent in American Sign Language. I had been an Interpreter for the Deaf in Boston for several years. Since then, I have tutored many deaf students in English, ESL, and Literacy. As a hearing man, I can create an effective bridge that links the richness and power of ASL with the subtle complexities of English.

Whatever the situation, my approach to ESL ensures a support system for the student that will help in every aspect of education.

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.

I have taught English for over 15 years: writing, grammar, vocabulary and reading.

Flute

I have a degree in Flute/Music Education. I have been playing the flute for over 40 years. I currently play flute in a local Wind Ensemble. I have been a music teacher and private tutor for flute for many years.

Hard Of Hearing

I am fluent in American Sign Language. I can work with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing population quite easily using visual aids as well as matching the student's linguistic skills: ASL, PSE, SEE, etc. I have been effectively teaching the Deaf and Hard of Hearing population for over 10 years.

Sign Language

I have been using Sign Language since 1988. I was an ASL Interpreter after I received my training (ITP) from Northeastern University in Boston. I have taught all levels of ASL (beginning to advanced) to students young and old, and I also enjoying teaching English to deaf adults using their native ASL.
