About Jeff


Bio

I'm Jeff and I taught for several years in the NYC high school system as a licensed math teacher. I greatly enjoyed interacting with my students and was pretty successful even in the more difficult subjects of algebra, geometry, and trig. Since students in NYC come from many different backgrounds no one plan or even set of plans could be used. If something I planned didn't click I had to often improvise. For me, whatever worked was what I used and I became adept doing what I needed to get a...

I'm Jeff and I taught for several years in the NYC high school system as a licensed math teacher. I greatly enjoyed interacting with my students and was pretty successful even in the more difficult subjects of algebra, geometry, and trig. Since students in NYC come from many different backgrounds no one plan or even set of plans could be used. If something I planned didn't click I had to often improvise. For me, whatever worked was what I used and I became adept doing what I needed to get a concept across.

I decided to leave the NYC system and I pursued a career in computers. I became a computer programmer, formed my own company at one point, wrote for several computer magazines, and became a certified trainer in Microsoft products traveling the country conducting classes in computer programming.

I have always wanted to continuing teaching in some way and tutoring seems to me an ideal way. Besides math I have a specialty in World and American history and would welcome the chance to assist any students who need help.

I worked for several years as a math teacher in the NYC high school system. Because students come from so many different backgrounds no one system, or plan, or system of plans can be counted on to get the concepts across especially in the more difficult areas. I became flexible and quick to shift gears adjusting plans as needed.

I have been a SQL computer programmer for many years and also was a technical trainer for Microsoft products where SQL was a component of the course work.

History is not just dates, battles, or the names of generals or presidents. History, particularly European and American history, is what makes the present day what it is. I see history as a line extended back hundreds of years where events of today occurred because of events 50 years ago which occurred because of events 100 years before that, and so on.

In one way or another I have always taught whether it was in a formal school classroom or in a small team where I taught people how to debug a computer program. One-on-one tutoring is another opportunity to help students learn something new or get extra help where they need it.
