About Jeffery

I love learning, and that passion has transferred to teaching. With more than 20 years of teaching experience from elementary to high school math, I bring a proven track record of effective results to each of my tutoring sessions. Even more than teaching in the classroom, I enjoy the one-on-one contact with students through tutoring. My goal is to help you reach your greatest potential and achieve more than you thought possible.

I specialize in both math and photography. If you need to prepare for the ACT, SAT or other standardized tests, I can help you. If you are struggling with anything from pre-algebra to calculus, let's get together and work it out. If you simply want to increase your understanding of math topics, we can make it happen. I keep the focus on what you need to learn.

On top of being a math teacher, I am also a free-lance photographer and can help anyone improve their photography, from a beginner who isn't sure what all the dials and buttons do to more seasoned photographers who want to make their photos pop. And if you need a better understanding of and confidence in processing your photos in Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop, I can help you bring out the best in each and every photo you take. My photography tutoring approach is very hands-on, with guidance, encouragement, and critique every step of the way.

As far as credentials are concerned, I have a secondary (high school) math and English teaching certificate from the State of Illinois, although I have taught and tutored students from third grade through high school in my 20+ years of teaching and tutoring experience.

When you make an appointment with me, you can be sure I will be there. I am flexible with time, and whereas I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I do offer to reschedule missed sessions. Additionally, if a student or parent is not satisfied with a tutoring session, I will not submit a bill for it. Your growth and satisfaction are my main concerns.

For a tutoring session, we can meet wherever is most convenient for you. I prefer to use the meeting room in my condo building, but am also willing to travel to make it happen. I am here to support you.

I hope to hear from you, and in any case wish you the best in your studies and pursuits. I encourage you to contact me with any questions or to schedule a session.

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.

Photography

I am currently a free-lance photographer. I was employed this summer at Urban Kayaks as a photographer. I have taken courses at the Chicago Photography Center and on-line. I am also a certified teacher in Illinois.
