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.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Jeff is helping our daughter with Chemistry and has been a big help. He is very patient and gives good tips as they are working through topics. He has been very cooperative recently with scheduling.

ROBERT, 4 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgeable and Kind Tutor

Jeff went over and reviewed momentum and force with me. He helped me solve some problems I had, and even gave me a practice problem to solve.

Mano, 2 lessons with Jeff

Awesome Chemistry tutor

Jeff is an amazing tutor. He really takes the time to explain all the concepts so you understand them. I feel confident when I’m done with my session that I understand the material. I look forward to seeing my grade go up.

Gia, 17 lessons with Jeff

Great teacher, goes above & beyond to help!

We really love Jeff & appreciate his love for teaching, he is kind & patient. Jeff is thorough & makes sure the student understands what is being taught before moving on to the next concept/problem. Highly recommended!

Courtenay, 2 lessons with Jeff

Very Helpful

Jeff helped our son with some difficult mathematical concepts in his Chemistry II college course. In our son’s words, Jeff explains things more visually which really helps with comprehension. We will definitely hire him again!

Shawna, 8 lessons with Jeff

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, 7 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

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.
