About Jeff

I worked for a non-profit organization called Young Life for 6 years before going back to school to become a teacher. I taught for a year in St. Louis Public Schools before moving to Parkway. I've taught everything from 7th grade up to 12th grade. I love working with kids. Currently, I tutor through Parkway in addition to Wyzant.

I have real world writing experience, unlike many teachers. I have taught AP classes and work hard to ensure student success.

You will find that I am friendly and personable. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have taught ELA at Parkway West Middle School for the past 4 years. West Middle is a Blue Ribbon School for our outstanding performance on state assessments.

I have also taught high school English in Rockwood and SLPS, including English 9, English 10, English 11, and AP Literature.

Literature

Currently in Parkway we utilize reader's fully in middle school. This means that my students are reading for 45 minutes every day. Every day, I teach a 10-15 minute reading mini lesson and then I have the freedom to conference individually with students so that I can meet their needs on a more personal level. Due to this emphasis on reading, I have developed many strategies that will fit the needs of your child.

Reading

I am currently a middle school English Language Arts teacher. In my district, 45 minutes of every class period are devoted to reading skills. The reading skills taught every day uniquely qualify me to tutor the subject of reading.

Writing

Currently we utilize reader's and writer's workshop fully in middle school. This means that my students are writing for 45 minutes every day. Typically, this looks like a 10-15 minute mini lesson and then I have the freedom to conference individually with students so that I can meet their needs on a more personal level. Due to this emphasis on writing, I have developed many strategies that will fit the needs of your child.
