About Jeff

You've made a wise decision in seeking a tutor. Research shows that one-to-one tutoring is the most efficient way to learn.

I have a Masters degree in Educational Psychology and did doctoral work at Vanderbilt University. I have tutored students from K to adult in many subjects and have experience as an SES tutor in Metro Nashville. My ESL students include adults from Africa, South American, and Asia. I also enjoy tutoring K-12 students in English, reading, writing, social studies, and math.

The Keys to Great Tutoring
There are many keys to great tutoring. I believe that I hold a few of the traits that that are less commonly seen. Here is a short list of what I consider essential.

A successful tutor

is a good listener
knows how to ask questions
customizes the learning experience for each student
has an enthusiasm for learning that is contagious
is patient
is flexible
and is a great encourager!

Please call me to learn how I help you or your student succeed.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I teach English to refugees on a weekly basis using the Laubach series curriculum and supplement with additional materials. I have done this since 2008. I also hold a Masters degree in Education (Ed. Psych.) from Florida State University.
