About Jeff

Howdy! My name is Jeff and I have taught middle school science in public and charter schools in Irving, Grand Prairie, and Dallas. I recently moved to Saginaw and left my teaching position in Dallas. My students have always exceeded expectations. I am hoping to connect with a few families and students that would like to be surprised by their own capacity to learn. I believe that there is a lot of wasted time, energy, and resources at many schools today. I am completely focused on student learning and achievement and I'm excited about homeschooling and tutoring.

I was a science teacher by profession, but each year I chipped in and helped the students with Math before the STAAR test. My 7th and 8th grade students always said I should be their math teacher too!

I love science! I taught 7th and 8th grade science and my students have always been amazed how easy it is to learn.

My past students were able to increase their STAAR scores year after year and I expect to do the same with my future students. I have also led STAAR prep courses for my prior schools.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a certified SPED teacher. I served at schools that have a high population of SPED students and I have managed classrooms that had many students with ADD and ADHD in the same class. I can take the student's learning style and cater the lesson to suit the student. I have also been diagnosed as ADD myself so I can relate to their struggles and help them learn how to work within their abilities.

I played baseball through high school. My father is a long time coach, and I learned a lot from him. I was the head baseball coach for middle school and an assistant coach for high school.
