About Jeff


Bio

Right after graduating from college with a degree in Junior High Science teaching, I taught high school science for ten years; which included the following subject areas: Physical Science, General Science, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I enjoyed lesson preparation and providing hands-on activities to help students remember topics. I then pursued a Science career, which provided me opportunities to perform training,...

Right after graduating from college with a degree in Junior High Science teaching, I taught high school science for ten years; which included the following subject areas: Physical Science, General Science, Earth Science, Environmental Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I enjoyed lesson preparation and providing hands-on activities to help students remember topics. I then pursued a Science career, which provided me opportunities to perform training, create standard operating procedures, and experience new learning opportunities for myself. As I still had a passion for teaching, when I saw an opportunity to tutor at MCC, I gladly applied and was accepted. I became a CRLA certified tutor with positive evaluations. This opened up an opportunity to become an adjunct teacher at MCC in the subject of science. During this time, I also became interested in Teaching English as a second language. I received training, and have been a volunteer teacher for basic and beginner's level ESL. I am looking forward to working with any age student who wants to learn Science or basic ESL.

I was teacher for several years and I taught what is age appropriate material. I also recognize that students in the elementary level need more hands-on activities to help make the concepts concrete.

Physics

Physics is one of my favorite subjects, and one that I taught at the high school level for 9 years. I am able to bring it down to basic steps since this is what I did in my Physical Science courses. I used hands-on labs and performed many demonstrations to help students understand the concepts.

Great teacher

My son understood everything Jeff explained! Thanks. He did much better on his chemistry test and is trying to catch up. Jeff provided good resources.

Mariana, 6 lessons with Jeff

Awesome tutor!

I was struggling with College Chemistry and after my first lesson with Jeff, I left feeling a lot better about the subject. He made it easy for me to understand. I will be continuing my tutor sessions with Jeff.

Brittney, 4 lessons with Jeff

Excellent🖒

Rreally appreciate that he take the time to break down the problem and allow me solve the problem by using my critical thinking skills. I wish I used this service earlier in the course

Lucille, 3 lessons with Jeff

Jeff is a kind and helpful tutor

Jeff is working with my son in chemistry and physics. Later in the week, he sent some follow up info on the physics which was thoughtful. We will continue to seek his tutorIng services.

David, 2 lessons with Jeff

A reservoir of knowledge!

Jeff was a valuable resource for me as I had some trouble in physics. We developed ways to solve problems and talked through the specifics of how to deconstruct problems in a physics course. His patience and knowledge made the tutoring environment enjoyable and very productive! It was especially helpful to start off with the big picture and get to the details, as well as make connections between different physical phenomena.

Trevor , 21 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgable and very patient tutor

My son was happy to have a tutor as Jeff. My son had difficulties with Physical Science and It was very good explanations. Finally, my son understood this material and wants to continue to get tutoring from Jeff.

Lyuda, 36 lessons with Jeff

Great experience

Jeff was very helpful, patient and encouraging with my daughter. She feels much more confident with her upcoming chemistry test. Thank you for your guidance, Jeff.

Christine , 3 lessons with Jeff

Great tutor.

Jeff was an excellent tutor. Our daughter had a very tough physics class and with Jeff's help was able to get an "A". He went above and beyond, not only meeting with her, but e-mailing her during the week with help. Highly recommended.

Chemistry crunch time

Mr. Jeff was very helpful and was willing to work around me not being by my desktop. I will definitely use him again.
