Cornell University (Engineering Physics)
Cornell University (Master's)
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.

Session minimum: 90 minutes (I have found from experience that the subjects I tutor require at least 90 minute lesson times in order to give proper treatment)
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. At first, I felt I was lost, but after he explained it and gave me practice problems, I felt that I understood the concepts, and could possibly do better on the test. When I was doing the exam, I knew what I was doing but at previous tests, I was completely lost and did not know what I was doing. Also, Jeffrey would ask me what I was learning and he would quiz me to make sure I understand the concept. If I don't, he will go through it one more time and would explain it in a different way. He is a great tutor and I really enjoy having him as a tutor. He has helped me so much!
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.
