About Jeff


Bio

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...

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!

Very knowledgeable and helpful!

Jeff is an excellent tutor. He takes time to sit down and thoroughly explain each concept, giving you a deep understanding of all content. Jeff willingly sacrificed his weekend in order to help me study for a very important Monday exam. He takes time out of his own life to prepare practice questions and ensure that he can most efficiently help you.

knows stuff but not always dependable

We used Jeff for many tutoring sessions. He is a teacher and knows his stuff. Unfortunately, Jeff cancelled lessons at the last second many times. I would recommend him for his knowledge but I was disappointed in the number of times that he cancelled at the last second and many times for key sessions right before a test. I give him high marks for his teaching abilities but low marks for reliability.

Tutor responded:

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.

Great Teacher!

Jeff was a great help to both of my boys! Clearly knowledgable, but his patience and approach really helped the boys gain the understanding they need to finish the school year. Highly recommend Jeff to anyone seeking help for their kids.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jeff is great. Very patient and helped me understand asymptotes and continuity. He had worksheets and notes that were easy to comprehend. He answered all questions that I had and I feel much more confident in class now. Thank you!
