About Jeff

Best of both worlds!

I have 15 years industry experience which means I'm level headed and not "too nerdy" to relate the subject matter to my students.

I've also been an Adjunct Professor at the St. Louis Community College and Maryville University off and on over the last 12 years. I'm currently at Maryville as a full time lab manager and Adjunct Professor in chemistry.

Students eagerly seek out my sections because they know I will make the materials easier to understand and they really enjoy my real life experiences in the application of chemistry. I worked over a decade as a medicinal chemist with Monsanto / Pharmacia / Pfizer.

I love working with young adults (and older ones!). I currently manage over 20 student workers and I'm a former youth pastor who is used to relating to and working with teenage and 20-something students.

Why not choose someone with experience?

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.

With a BS in Chemistry from a top ranked University and a Masters in Organic chemistry from another nationally recognized school, I have the background to show you the ropes. I've also taught for over 5 years and know how to present the material in way you will understand.

Elementary Math

I have a graduate degree in chemistry, and I've been helping my own children for years and know what it takes to help a young mind grasp these difficult topics.
I don't just work on the subject matter, I pride myself on helping them with their self esteem too. Helping them gain confidence will benefit them in every subject they encounter.

A+ Tutor! — Prof. C. has been a pleasure to work with. I'm in college and needed last minute help before a chemistry exam. He responded quickly and was able to teach specifically to my learning style. I ended up earning a full letter grade higher that anticipated. He is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely use him again! ...
