About Jeff

Hello,

I look forward to hearing from you, in helping you or your student to prepare and improve skill sets in reading, English, writing, grammar. I am an ESL/English teacher who teaches both elementary and high school students in a leading suburban Phila. school district. Additionally, I work with students in preparation for SAT and ACT testing, TOEFL and Praxis exams. Working with students in preparation of college entrance essays is another area with valuable expertise. Helping elementary and middle school kids with reading comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar in order to keep them from falling behind is another area of expertise.

I have over 20 years experience in teaching and tutoring, with certification in English, Social Studies, Reading, ESL and Elementary Education I guess the satisfaction of seeing students truly succeed keeps me loving what I do. I am sure you'll agree, there is no better profession!

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.

College Counseling

I have experience working with students and families to prepare a strategy and walk them through the detailed process step by step with confidence.

Great tutor, I highly recommend him! — Jeff has been such a wonderful tutor for my son's first college class! He helped my son with studying for quizzes and tests, writing papers, and learning about how to study effectively. My son enjoyed his tutoring sessions with Jeff and told me that he learned a lot from him. I am very happy with the tutoring services that Jeff provided. I highly recommend Jeff, he is an excellent tutor! ...
