I have a Master's Degree in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and have been tutoring independently for 19 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.

After graduate school, I began my tutoring career as a Professional Writing Tutor in the Learning Assistance Center at my local community college. I soon struck out on my own, beginning to tutor the SAT, ACT, Math, and English. I've continued to tutor ever since then and have also worked for Private Home Tutoring, a local tutoring company in my area. I worked for them for several years, tutoring students one-one-one and teaching part of their SAT courses in two local school districts. I was very happy to see I always received very high marks from the students on the surveys after completion of the SAT courses.

I also co-founded a company where I helped dyslexic students develop their writing and critical reasoning skills. I created the curriculum and taught all our students. A local school district used my curriculum to teach their students.

I specialize in standardized test preparation. Having prepared students for the SAT and ACT for 17 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 always rel

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!

Great Teacher

Great job. Jeff was knowledgeable and my son found the lesson very valuable. Jeff worked on verbal and lots of strategies.

Zainab, 2 lessons with Jeff

Smart and EXTREMELY helpful tutor! Highly recommended!

I'm studying for the written portion of the GRE and I met with Jeff to help me improve my score. Jeff was extremely helpful and friendly and gave me very specific, helpful and useful suggestions. I know already that I'm going to do better on the test because of this one tutoring session and I am SO grateful to him for the help! Thank you so much Jeff!!!! I will definitely reach out again for any tutoring needs!

An exceptionally gifted tutor

Jeff is definitely the best math tutor my daughter has ever had the good fortune to work with. His knowledge of math is impeccable and he is also extraordinarily kind and fun. Also proactive—he took the time to email my daughter’s math teacher regarding what would be on her math final. Very highly recommended.

Algebra 2

Jeff tutored my granddaughter for her algebra 2 regents. For the first time she passed a math regents on the first try. She could not have done this without his help. Jeff made working with him easy which encouraged her to stick with the tutoring. A big thank you to Jeff.
