About Jerry

I have been teaching at Reed College since 1989 and now am looking to do some tutoring beyond that venue in anticipation of retiring soon.

In light of my work experience, probably I am best suited for now to work with advanced high school students or college students, or with precocious younger students.

My teaching method starts with trying to find the student's points of strength and understanding, and then building on those to address challenges or difficulties. I enjoy helping people.

Feel welcome to contact me, and we will see whether we can work together effectively.

knowledgeable, qualified — Jerry was wonderful. I am an extremely visual learner. Mathematical formulas and symbolic notation, I have nothing to compare it to, no easy way to translate it into pictures when trying to figure it out. Jerry was able to do this for me with ease and I was able to get a picture painted and understand what the hell was going on. It was brilliant. ...
