Bio

I am a recently retired middle school language arts and social studies teacher. I taught for 28 years, and I loved doing it. In my language arts classes, I taught many styles of writing including narrative, argumentative, expository, journal writing, responses to literature, and poetry. I also taught grammar and spelling/vocabulary. Additionally, I taught a wide variety of novels, strengthening students' reading comprehension and love of literature.

I am a recently retired middle school language arts and social studies teacher. I taught for 28 years, and I loved doing it. In my language arts classes, I taught many styles of writing including narrative, argumentative, expository, journal writing, responses to literature, and poetry. I also taught grammar and spelling/vocabulary. Additionally, I taught a wide variety of novels, strengthening students' reading comprehension and love of literature.

In my world history classes, I not only taught the curriculum, but also note-taking, test preparation, test-taking, debate, critical thinking, and public speaking (also taught in language arts). Since I was a professional musician prior to my teaching career, I brought music into the curriculum in both my language arts and social studies classes. I love teaching and helping kids learn and develop skills, and I'm a patient, caring person who works very well with students in a one-on-one situation.

Twenty-eight years of teaching a very diverse group of students, as well as being a writer myself (I've even written a book about teaching), an avid reader, a poet, songwriter, singer, public speaker and debater.

Please contact me with any questions about me or my qualifications. My rates are reasonable and my time is flexible.

It was very nice

It was very nice to get to meet Jeff. He helped me with some of my grammar mistakes that I make. And it was nice that he gave me different prompts to choose from, so I didn’t have to do something that I might now have been comfortable with. And I got to know Jeff a little bit.

Ela

He has been very patient with my child and also she has learned more very funny to start off the session I guess it's to ease her in before getting started with the lesson she feels comfortable and is more open to say and ask questions his an awesome tutor

Juana, 17 lessons with Jeff

Very Knowledgeable and patient

Jeff is helping my 5th-grader with vocabulary, essay writing, and reading comprehension. Along with teaching new concepts, reinforcing concepts learned in the class, he does homework help. He is very flexible with timings and has a unique way of teaching. In between sessions whenever needed, he helps out via email as well. His response time is awesome. My kid really enjoys working with him.

Mr. Jeff Wyman tutors my 7th grader

Mr. Wyman has a gift for assessing the student understanding what attributes require polishing. His approach to teaching builds trust that allows the student to express him/herself uninhibitedly in their writing assignments. Once the assigned work is reviewed, Mr. Wyman asks questions pertaining to the work that challenges the student, and prepares them to express themselves accurately and thoroughly moving forward. He is actually a life coach instilling confidence in oneself via the mode of writing. I recommend Mr. Wyman as I have seen the improvement in my son's expression in speaking and writing in just 2 months!!!

Excellent tutor

Jeff has been teaching my son for 2 months now. I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my son's reading and writing. Jeff comes to each session well prepared with a lesson plan. Jeff is incredibly patient and really goes the extra mile to help explain concepts that are difficult to grasp. I highly recommend Jeff as a tutor!

Experienced and Encouraging Teacher

Jeff is teaching my 7th grader son and another friend on a weekly basis because they have a sub for most of the year in their humanities class (Language Arts/Social Studies). Both boys are enjoying his class and say he is kind, patient and informative. He provides good feedback on their written composition and is very encouraging. He is very helpful and would recommend him!

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jeff is an amazing tutor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and professional. He helped with a presentation and completing a paper that I had to submit. He provided me with very important tips and suggestions for the presentation. Corrected me until I got everything right. I was very confident after the session with Jeff. He helped me in completing one of the papers, I was struggling with. I contacted him at the last moment. But he was so quick to respond and scheduled a session immediately. He was very thorough in reviewing my paper word and word and did a fantastic job. I couldn’t have done it without his help. Thank you, Jeff.
