About Jeff


Bio

Hello, My name is Jeff and I would like the opportunity to show you how to be confident with math problems by taking the frustration out of it. Raising two children of my own I saw first hand how a teacher can either make or break the way you learn math. No matter how good the teacher is, one-on-one instruction is the best way to supplement what has been absorbed in the classroom. My goal is to take what has been learned in the classroom and build on that by helping students gain confide...

Hello, My name is Jeff and I would like the opportunity to show you how to be confident with math problems by taking the frustration out of it. Raising two children of my own I saw first hand how a teacher can either make or break the way you learn math. No matter how good the teacher is, one-on-one instruction is the best way to supplement what has been absorbed in the classroom.

My goal is to take what has been learned in the classroom and build on that by helping students gain confidence understanding the "rules" of math that never change. Math concepts can be difficult at all levels, and can be discouraging especially when expected results are not achieved. I have found that true success comes from a basic understanding along with repetition, encouragement and a positive learning environment.

I have a mathematics degree from the State University of New York, Potsdam. My entire career of 40 plus years has been spent in the mathematics field. I am currently employed as an Operations Research Analyst/Mathematician in the aviation industry and consider myself to be a hard working, friendly and patient person. My experience ranges from elementary to high school level math. I am available to meet at any location that is comfortable for the student. Looking forward to putting a confident smile on a discouraged face!

Knowledgeable and accommodating

Jeff did an excellent job when tutoring my daughter in geometry. He was very accommodating with fitting us into his schedule on short notice. He is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor and I highly recommend him.

Joan, 1 lesson with Jeff

A true tutor

We reached out to Jeff in order to help my son who was struggling in Algebra. Jeff took his time and went beyond the norm to advise and guide my son. His passion and knowledge for what he does is evident.

Great Math Tutor

Jeff has really helped my son understand the math concepts he was unable to grasp in school. We are very pleased with the results we are seeing in his grades and his increased confidence in the subject.

Tutor responded:

Thank you Ihsia. I am glad your daughter is gaining confidence! That makes a huge difference.

Made the connection

TJ likes Jeff. Jeff seems to have the mild manner that puts TJ at ease so learning is not only possible but enjoyable. TJ stayed at the table doing math problems for an additional 40 minutes after Jeff left, we've never seen that before.

Great Tutor!

Jeff has been tutoring our son this year in Algebra. He always responds in a timely matter by text or Email and is also very flexible with his schedule. My son really enjoys Jeff as he is a patient teacher with a very easy going personality. Math has always been a difficult subject, but our son's confidence and ability has progressed significantly with Jeff's tutoring. We have recommended Jeff to other students and will continue to do so.

Went Above and Beyond

Jeff called my daughter Hannah's teacher at school to discuss the method he uses to teach a certain topic in Algebra. Jeff then offered to meet with Hannah again after spending an hour with her earlier in the week, just to make sure Hannah understood the method the teacher was using. He really goes out of the way for his students and wants to see them succeed.
