About Jeffrey

Hi. I have BS and MS degrees in chemistry from Furman University and also a master’s degree in chemical microscopy from McCrone Research Institute in Chicago, IL. I have worked for 24 years as a forensic chemist, including 10 years at the state crime lab in Columbia, SC, and I currently own a private forensics lab in South Carolina. Additionally, I have taught chemistry for 12 years as an adjunct instructor at Greenville Technical College.

My current work involves microscopical and chemical analysis of textile fibers, paint, glass, explosive residues, gunshot residues, hair, soil, insulation, inks, and other items of trace evidence. My clients include local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, attorneys, insurance companies, and industries that are concerned with contaminants in products being manufactured.

I have always enjoyed math and science, and it is very satisfying to apply the science I have learned to solving practical problems in forensics and industry. Teaching college students is also rewarding. I take the student-teacher relationship very seriously, try to make myself available to students as much as I possibly can, and I also learn from my students as they ask questions, share ideas, and improve their problem-solving skills.

As a tutor, I will evaluate the difficulty level at which the tutoring should begin, I will be punctual, patient, flexible with my schedule, and do everything I can to help the student succeed. Whether it's talking to a group of students or testifying in court for a forensics case, I have had many years of experience explaining technical information to a wide variety of audiences. I believe this will be an asset in providing a quality tutoring experience to interested students.
