I have taught at three Universities and at four High Schools, including Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. I have extensive experience teaching in a classroom setting, small group, or one-on-one. My specialty is Science and Math but I can also teach a wide variety of subjects. I have a lot of experience tutoring students

Jeff is a great Algebra 2 tutor. My daughter was struggling and had an F in the class. After a few sessions with Jeff, she received an A on the final 3rd quarter exam and was able to make up a few missing homework assignments. With Jeff's assistance, my daughter ended the quarter with a B, which was fantastic. eff is very professional, knowledgeable and patient. He is highly recommended for any high school math tutoring.

Dr M. was willing to meet me and go over GRE math questions. He was a great resource. He knows what he is doing and has helped me feel more confident with my studies.

Jeff started tutoring my son in the beginning of his 11th grade year for trigonometry. He was very patient and re-explained everything to my son in an easier to understand format. In the first quarter my son got a C on his report card. In the 2nd quarter he got a B. The next semester he took pre calculus. For both the 3rd and fourth quarter he received a B which has helped his accumulated GPA go up. During the last few weeks he has been tutoring my son to help him prepare for his upcoming SAT test. He not only has helped my son with his school subjects but also has talked to him about his different options with colleges. I would highly recommend Jeff as a tutor.

Thanks Jeff for all that you have done to help Kamea.

Jeffrey gave me a lesson on power point. He was has extensive knowledge and is wiling to take the time to answer all my questions. I would recommend him to friends, family and co-workers who are in need of his services!

Mr Jeffrey is currently helping my son with the math portion of the ASVB test and he is showing great strides with the help of Mr Jeffrey.

My 16 year old son, who had always been excellent in math, was suddenly struggling with C's and D's the 2nd semester of Algebra 2 this year. He just wasn't clicking with his current instructor's teaching style, and said everything was going over his head. But with Jeff's expert and patient help he was able to regain his footing and finish out the year with a B. Better yet, he actually feels prepared for more advanced math. We started late with only a little over a month left in the school year and with a lot of material to cover before the final exam, but somehow they pulled it off. Jeff is always prompt, courteous, and professional and I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a math tutor.

Mr. Jeffrey was early and ready to go quickly. Within a few minutes of discussing the immediate issue concerning my wife's math work, he was able to assess her knowledge level and approach the lesson in a way that was proportionate to her experience. As a military member, I had little time to properly seek out a effective tutor, so it was a real relief to find Mr. Jeffrey the first time up. My overall assessment is: "Highly recommended."

Jeff is a good listener and patient teacher who encouraged me to experiment or "play with" my new Mac, iPhone and iPad. My sessions with him are consistently productive. I now feel much more confident and comfortable reaching out to alumni and family through Facebook and Skype. He was able to troubleshoot my Wifi and a tricky problem that slowed my laptop speed intermittently. I brought it to Geeksquad and they couldn't figure it out, but Jeff did. He aslo taught me how to check it out myself if it happens again. He set up my new iPad and dropbox so I can read music on it, a huge improvement for me. I'm 58 and felt more comfortable explaining my ignorance and confusion to him than I did to the much younger previous tutor. That may be because he could understand my confusion over the differences between the PC I'd been used to and the Mac. His consistent promptness and attentiveness to my priorities was a blessing.

I was looking for an ASVAB tutor for my nephew and found Dr. M. He seemed very knowledgeable with great experiences. He is very professional and understanding while tutoring. He is also motivated to help my nephew solve problems and learn the material. Very patient when explaining a problem or the situation. He is also very intimate with what he knows and shares with my nephew to help him better understand the majority of the questions.

Dr. M was very easy to get in touch with and very flexible with the hours he was willing to tutor. He also travels to meet my nephew at his school to make it easier on him.

I highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey M for your tutoring needs!

After our initial meeting, Dr. M took a few minutes to note my concern for this course I am taking. He immediate started to provide clarification on the terminology used by the course, making it easier for me to understand a little better.

Dr. M was very professional and very knowledge in the course subject.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
