Hi. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you to assist you in becoming the best you can be.

I have a B.A. in Applied Mathematics (including Statistics) and Economics from The Johns Hopkins University, where I graduated with a 3.96 GPA and earned admission into the Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society. I also have an MBA in Finance and Public Policy from The Wharton School, where I earned admission into the Beta Gamma Sigma Honors Society. I have taken two SAT prep courses, with transferable skills to the ACT, GMAT, GRE, ASVAB and other standardized tests. I have been a Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Financial Consultant, and have been in the financial services industry for over 28 years.

People of all ages feel comfortable with me immediately. I have 4 children of my own (ages 19-28) (AND NOW 3 GRANDCHILDREN!), and kept my tutoring skills very sharp on a nightly basis! I was extremely successful in customizing my approach to each member of that crew, so I can certainly do it for you or your child. Let's put it this way: They would "rehire" me every night, so I must have done something right!

I would love to assist you. Thank you for your consideration.

MTLE

Taking the MTLE Mathematics exam can be a daunting task. Because its goal is to test your classroom readiness across the spectrum of content, it covers a lot of ground. This breadth can make it hard to know how to prepare. Luckily, if you understand how the test is organized and what it is testing, you will have no problem prepping for this test. In order to cover everything, the exam is broken into two subtests – which are then broken down into a total of five subareas Number Sense / Functions, Algebra, and Calculus / Measurement and Geometry / Data, Probability, and Discrete Math / Mathematical Processes). I have a B.A. in Applied Mathematics (including Statistics) and Economics from The Johns Hopkins University, where I graduated with a 3.96 GPA. I also have an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School. I have taken two SAT prep courses, with transferable skills to the ACT, GMAT, GRE, ASVAB and other standardized tests. The skills I have acquired through my education and thousands of hours of tutoring will fit perfectly to enable you to maximize your score on the MTLE Mathematics exam. Let's work together to enable you to achieve your goals!

What an excellent tutor!!

Jeff was fantastic and personal, didn't treat like just another student to tutor. Jeff was patient and took interest in wanting to solve the problems with me, and explain everything in depth and we did not move on until he was sure I was comfortable with solving. He gave me great material to review off the tutor session and gave such great advice and tips in order to memorize formulas we worked with during our sessions. Highly recommend Jeffrey if you want a fun going tutor!! Thanks Jeff

Knowledgeable and patient

He was very good at teaching me what I needed to know and was patient when I did not understand what was being explained. He explained everything step by step and did not get upset when I asked questions. He encouraged questions and was willing to explain everything in detail.

Great teacher, best tutor I’ve ever had.

Jeff is a great teacher and tutor, he really breaks things down and makes them comprehendable and easier to understand. He wants to make sure you can work through whatever it is you’re learning about before moving on to the next. Money well spent to help you study and prepare for a test or just help getting through tough studies.
