I have a Master's Degree in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and have been tutoring independently for over 20 years. I love working with students and helping them gain the confidence they need to excel in their school courses and standardized tests. I create a very positive and friendly environment where students feel comfortable learning and asking questions. Creating this encouraging environment is vital for allowing students to access their full creativity and learn new concepts.

I specialize in standardized test preparation. Having prepared students for the SAT and ACT for so many years, I know the tests inside and out and have a proven lesson plan to help students gain the scores they want. I adapt the lesson plans based on the needs of each individual student. I also tutor all sections of both exams, providing complete preparation for the tests. I've had students who have achieved near-perfect scores on the SAT and ACT.

I've tutored high school Math for almost as long as the SAT and ACT. I specialize in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus. I work hard to explain Math concepts in the simplest and most straightforward way.

I have experience with many different standardized tests. For those applying to graduate school, I help prepare students for the GRE, GMAT, and LSAT.

One of the best things about tutoring is the amazing bonds I've made with students and their parents. I've often tutored multiple siblings in one family over several years, and it sometimes feels like I've become part of the family. That's an incredible feeling and why I continue to tutor.

I am very easy to reach and will reply quickly. I'm flexible with my schedule and provide both in-person and online tutoring, so I'm certain we can find a time that works for both of us.

The most important thing for me is that my students succeed and gain confidence in their future studies. I look forward to working with you!

GRE

GRE

I've been preparing students for all sections of the GRE for over 15 years and am well-versed in the test. When I was applying to grad schools and took the GRE, I received almost perfect scores on the Quantitative and Analytical sections of the test. I also co-founded and developed the curriculum for a company where we heavily used the GRE Analytical Writing section, so I have a lot of experience helping students with that section. I'd be very happy to help you gain your goal scores and beyond on the GRE! Please feel to reach out with any questions. Thanks very much!

excellent!

Jeff is determined to see improvement and is encouraging and yet firm throughout the lesson. He talks you through the questions and helps develop and teach simultaneously.

JOSEPH, 12 lessons with Jeff

excellent!

Very patient and encouraging! He is well spoken and plays to your strengths while also pushing you to do better! I highly recommend Jeff!

JOSEPH, 12 lessons with Jeff

Great Tutor

Jeff explained the “rules” of English to our son in a way a math mind could understand easily. He also reviewed the topics of math that the SATS would cover that our son hasn’t done in a period of time. Homework Assignments were not overwhelming but a fair amount of work that could easily be completed by our son. The assignments were reviewed at the start of each session. The assignments also became more targeted in the areas my son needed work in which I felt was time and money well spent. We were not wasting time in areas our son did not need to be focusing on. At the end my son was scoring near perfect 800 math and very high 600s English. With the fine tuning, teaching, practice, review and test strategies that Jeff provided I would say our sons score was raised an easy 200 points if he went in without these sessions. It was great to have one tutor handling both SAT sections and again the time became focused on his area of need. Very highly recommend !!

Kevin, 7 lessons with Jeff

Knowledgeable & helpful

My daughter has only had 1 lesson with Jeff, for 2 hours, but she is very happy. She told me he explained math to her in a way she could understand, math she struggled with for 3 years and had never understood.

Theresa, 6 lessons with Jeff

Great Tutor

Jeff appears very knowledgeable in both mathematics and English for the SATs. Most tutors seemed to be specific to either English or Math where Jeff could handle both very well. Highly recommend!

Kevin, 7 lessons with Jeff

excellent!

Very patient and took the time to review that processes! He took it step by step and I felt much more confident afterwards! I highly recommend Jeff!

Great SAT tutor with great results

Our son very much appreciated his tutoring experience with Jeff. He enjoyed working with him. He is patient, knowledgeable, and gives great tips on how to approach the exam. The homework was helpful. He picked up 190 points from his PSAT. We are very grateful for Jeff’s time, skills and flexibility with the timing and location of lessons.

Melissa , 10 lessons with Jeff

patient, knowledgeable and flexible

Help was need for concepts that the classroom teacher didn't explain well and the test was coming. Thankfully Jeff was there and was able to cover everything in details and precision. Thank you!

Odile, 12 lessons with Jeff

Great first visit.

Jeff has a great rapport with teenagers. He is very knowledgeable and efficient, and taught my daughter useful strategies right away. We look forward to booking more sessions with him.
