About Jeff

I'm currently a Doctoral student in Rochester and have worked with youth and young adults for 20 years as a counselor, teacher, tutor, and coach. I have NYS teacher certification in Math, English, and Social Studies. This also makes me a very good GED tutor. I have been told repeatedly that I excel at making difficult concepts easier to understand. I would count it a joy and privilege to work with you.

You might notice that I tutor in over 40 subjects! I'm somewhat of a "Renaissance Man" in that I know a lot about many different subjects. Much of this knowledge is from formal study through my several teacher certifications. Much knowledge has been gained through informal study. Believe it or not I appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and have passed the Jeopardy tryout 5 times! Through my study for these game shows I became knowledgeable in a variety of other subjects.

Perhaps my greatest tutoring success happened this past summer. Two young teens had failed their social studies course and had to pass summer school to advance to the next grade. I worked with these young men and they both scored over 90 on the required test!
