About Jeff

I believe in modeling a situation and having the student explain his or her step-by-step process to me. I feel if you can effectively communicate how to complete a task, then you are that much closer to mastering it. I use this approach in the classroom as well. I also take pride in simplifying mathematical concepts for students who may find some more difficult.

I have a Masters degree in Education-Leadership from St. Francis University. I have been a 7-12 math teacher since 2003. I'm currently full-time employed and in the process of earning my K-12 principal certification. I've been teaching and privately tutoring for over a decade.

I am passionate about helping others succeed. On the side of teaching, I have several years experience as a Basketball coach and a Varsity Baseball coach. Mathematics is the center of my skill set, but the teaching/learning process is my passion.

Please contact me if you need assistance. I can do 1-on-1 or group settings. My rates will vary per subject and/or group size. I think the online tutoring experience is the best! I enjoy helping people and look forward to hearing from you!

Jeff replied on 6/10/2016

I would like to apologize for being unable to attend a few sessions: once for coaching a high school baseball game that was reschedule due to rain, another due to a personal injury requiring medical attention, and another at a funeral/wake of a close friend. All but one session was able to be successfully rescheduled. These things in life do happen - leave no doubt I am dedicated to helping whoever wants it.

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.

ACT Math

Before joining WyzAnt, I held private study sessions for local baseball players who needed specific ACT results in order to be accepted into their universities and the NCAA clearinghouse. I have many materials, plus access to my employers ACT files, that I'm permitted to use for private tutoring.

Algebra 1

The majority of my teaching career has focused around around Algebra 1, remediation for Algebra 1, and preparing junior high students for the Pennsylvania Keystone Algebra 1 exam. I have tons of resources and experiences that I am willing to share with you.

Baseball

High school baseball coach for 10 years.

President of a local baseball association for 2 years

Gave private baseball lessons at ERA SPORTS, Altoona, PA from 2009-2014

Manager/founder of Altoona AAABA franchise sponsored by Red Bull (age 17-22).

Played collegiately at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (1998-2002)

Calculus

I've taught calculus since my time as a student teacher. I am very comfortable discussing concepts and have plenty of materials to assist your needs as a student.

Common Core

I have privately tutored many students with the new Common Core elementary standards. Also, my school district is realigning curriculum based on the Common Core, so I have much exposure to the "new methods". I have a Masters degree in Education-Leadership from St. Francis University. I have been a 7-12 math teacher since 2003.

Geometry

I taught high school geometry for 10 years (grades 9-10). I also took a master's level class in Geometry.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching Pre-Algebra and related courses in a junior high school for 12+ years. I've taught the highest honors level and the lowest level learners, and will adjust my style to the learner. Thank you for the consideration!

SAT Math

I currently teach the SAT prep course for my employer and have access to the most up to date test-prep materials.
