About Jeff

I am currently an adjunct professor teaching earth science classes at the University of Indianapolis. Before that, I taught full time at Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis in the geology department for 14 years. I have three degrees, a BS and an MS in geology from the Ohio State University and a PhD in geology from University of Colorado. My specialty is mineralogy; I used X-rays to study mineral structures to solve earth related problems. I love to teach and I have a talent for explaining difficult concept in simple, understandable terms.

The majority of the classes I taught were basic science classes for non-science majors. This has afforded me years of experience helping non-science students to understand scientific principles. I am excited about being a tutor and working one on one with students of all ages. I have been teaching for most of my life and I am still excited about learning science and helping others to understand and become excited by science.

I have a fair amount of practical experience using math to do science. I think that understanding the applications of math is very helpful in teaching it. In college I took math classes up through and including differential equations.

Please contact me if you need help in basic math or in any subject related to earth science such as basic chemistry and physics.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taken college algebra and understand it. I also use algebra all the time teaching science. I am good at algebra.

Chemistry

My specialty is crystal chemistry and I have taken graduate level classes in geochemistry. I have a good background to teach college chemistry.

Geology

I have a BS, MS and a PhD in geology and have taught introduction to physical geology over 25 times. I have a very broad understanding of the earth.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is very simple math that I can explain very well.

Precalculus

Precalculus is the highest math that i am willing to teach. I have a very solid understanding of precalculus and because I have taken 3 calculus course plus differential equations, I understand the context of precalculus.
