Bio

Remember how difficult it was the first time your physics teacher said you had to break forces down into components in order to use Newton's Second Law? Or when they asked you to find the maxima and minima of a complicated function? I sure do - I struggled with those things as well. But I found that with good teachers and some hard work, I was able to master difficult concepts. Through my struggle, I learned how to effectively instruct students in physics and math.

Remember how difficult it was the first time your physics teacher said you had to break forces down into components in order to use Newton's Second Law? Or when they asked you to find the maxima and minima of a complicated function? I sure do - I struggled with those things as well. But I found that with good teachers and some hard work, I was able to master difficult concepts. Through my struggle, I learned how to effectively instruct students in physics and math.

I have tutored throughout high school, college and graduate school, and have experience tutoring all levels of students - from elementary school students to upper level undergraduate students. I also taught physics at the college level and was nominated for an outstanding teacher award.

I have my Ph.D. in physics and through earning my degree I have obtained a deep understanding of the field, as well as plenty of experience teaching it. My enthusiasm for teaching physics and math is apparent in my tutoring sessions. This makes students excited to learn and therefore more receptive to the concepts.

Additionally, I know the ins and outs of the math sections on the new SAT and ACT, as well as the SAT Math Level 1 and Level 2 subject tests. AP physics and calculus? Got you covered there as well!

Feel free to contact me and ask any questions you may have, whether they are about my qualifications, my teaching philosophy or anything else that comes to mind!

I participated as an active member of Florida State University's Azucar Dance Company for 5.5 years. During four of those years, I was the group's lead instructor, helping to develop our curriculum, as well as train people who wanted to be part of our team. I was able to teach beginners, intermediate, and advanced. I also taught out of town during workshops.

Statistics

Statistics

Statistics was an integral part of my research as a graduate student in physics, so I have first hand experience in applied statistics. I work full time at a private tutoring company, where statistics is one of my specialties. My specialties are descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as probability and combinatorics.

Smart, Patient

This non-traditional student (entering an executive MBA program in the fall and wanting to do a fast course of non-trig Algebra 2) is a huge fan. We are using a high school textbook and Jeff doing a great job making sure we don't move too quickly. We use SKYPE and a digital white board, which is great for my schedule and his. I don't think we lose anything by not being physically in the same room. Highly recommended.

Physics Tutoring for High School AP Physics

Jeff was great! My son has been feeling completely defeated, but after just one hour with Jeff, the material started to click for him. Jeff was not only able to go over the material but he explained it in the most simple terms possible, and his mild easy manner ensured that my son was immediately at ease. Money well spent!!!!

Gemma, 1 lesson with Jeff

Patient and Understanding

After one lesson, I feel that I will excel if I keep working with Jeff to fix my errors and cover anything that will for sure be on the SAT Subject Test for Math.

Bhavesh, 13 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgable and patient SAT Math tutor

Today was the first meeting between my son and Jeff. He evaluated Steven to identify areas of strength and improvements that will be helpful in his math SAT test taking going forward. We came up with a meeting schedule where he was flexible with my son's schedule. We look forward to more meetings with Jeff.

Maureen, 12 lessons with Jeff

Very helpful Algebra tutor.

Jeff helped me understand word problems and turn them into algebraic equations. He also took his time and explained when things were correct and incorrect. I think he was very helpful and pin pointed many of my problems.

Jennifer, 1 lesson with Jeff

Knowledgeable and explains well

My son had two sessions with Jeff for College Physics, and found the sessions very helpful. Jeff helped him worked through some tough problems and gain a better understanding of the material.
