About Jeffery

My name is Jeffery. I attended North Park University from 2008-13. I have a B.A. in Mathematics. My major GPA was 3.2. From 2008-2010, I was apart of Math Club. From 2011-13, I was a Mathematics tutor. I tutored students with anything from Pre-Algebra to Statistics. In the Spring semester of the 2012-13 school year, I was a teacher's aide at Pennoyer Elementary School. There, I taught sixth and seventh graders Pre Algebra. I also was a Special Education teacher aide as well at Pennoyer. I would assist students with homework and helped the teacher get the class organized. The year after that, I was a student teacher at Guerin College Preparatory High School. For ten weeks, I taught freshmen, sophomores and juniors in Algebra 1 as well as Geometry. It was definitely a great experience and it showed me the everyday life of what it is like to be a teacher. I learned a lot about the students, the classes that I taught, and most importantly, myself.

In 2013, I graduated with a major in Secondary Education with a Concentration in Mathematics. Shortly after, I started working at Huntington Learning Center. As of today, I've been there for two and a half years, with extensive knowledge in Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus as well as ACT and SAT Math. I work with anyone from little children to adults. When it comes to working with students, my approach to when it comes to teaching is that I use a student centered approach to learning. I will have my students demonstrate to me that they have a great understanding of the subject at hand by comprehension and repetition of the material. Working with me, I raise the level of understanding around me and I will definitely provide a great support system for whomever decides to work with me.

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.

Prealgebra

I tutor students with Prealgebra every now and then. I am also extremely competent in teaching it.
