About Jeff

I have 14 years' experience teaching in Portland Public Schools, grades K-12. I am endorsed in the Art and ESL disciplines. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute. I also have a 5th Year Education degree from Portland State University. I taught Middle School Core and Art at Temple Beth Israel for 3 years on Wednesday nights. I have volunteered at KBOO radio for the last 30 years, and was recently elected to the Board of Directors there. I am also fluent in Spanish. I prefer to tutor grades 9-12 and College-level material. I have a laid back style, and can meet at your house, my house, or the library.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I took and passed cultural and physical anthro in college. I have been interested in this subject ever since, especially cultural anthro. As an ESL teacher culture is very important in understanding my students.

Drawing

I studied drawing for 3 years at the San Francisco Art Institute and graduated with a BFA in Printmaking. I also took drawing at the graduate level in the Education program at Portland State University graduating with a 5th Year Ed degree.

ESL/ESOL

ESL teacher with Portland Public Schools for 14 years. Worked with many communities of students (Hispanic, Russian, Pacific Islander, African, Eastern European, Middle Eastern).

Painting

I painted for 3 years at the San Francisco Art Institute graduating with a BFA. I have taken graduate courses in Painting at Portland State University graduating with a 5th Year Ed degree. I have taught Painting in Portland Public Schools. I have shown my paintings at galleries in Portland and San Francisco.

Photography

I have studied the History of Photography at the college level. I took black and white photography at the College of Marin in Kentfield. I have taught black and white photography in Portland Public Schools. I continue learn and hone my photography skills.

Public Speaking

As a teacher in Portland Public Schools for the last 14 years I am quite adept at Public Speaking. Eye contact, enunciation, tone and clarity are important factors in public speaking. Familiarity with your subject, so as not to be reading from notes, is important for flow and continuity of speech. I find some humor to be effective also.
