About Jeffrey

I would like to use my experience as an engineer to prepare the next generation of students to achieve their best in mathematics and science.

In addition to my formal education, I have obtained a wealth of real-world experience that can benefit technically-minded students prepare for careers in science and engineering. As a Tau Beta Pi graduate from an Ivy League university, I recognize that hard work and devotion to your studies will allow you to achieve your goals. I will work with each student to set appropriate learning targets, whether s/he is looking to supplement school learning to prepare for admission exams.

As a father of two teenage boys, I understand the challenges that modern life places on family schedules. I ask for at least 24 hour minimum cancellation, but I do try to reschedule sessions wherever time allows. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss how I can help you achieve you goals.

Great Tutor! — Jeffrey is a great tutor. I struggled with physics because I thought my teacher didn't explain it very well, plus we didn't have many practice problems to do. I thought that I was going to fail physics, but Jeffrey explained the concepts to me once more and I was able to understand how to do it. He even printed some more practice problems for me to do.
