About Jeffrey

Who says learning can't be fun? Fun is watching growth and development. As a progressive and professional educator, I've been working with youth for fourteen years in a variety of settings. My primary philosophy when it comes to teaching is that in order for learning to take place, a positive relationship between the teacher and student must exist. Once this relationship is established, I promote academic excellence by building on a student's academic strengths to address the areas where they need assistance.

I have experience in teaching math and history. In the field of history, I am certified to teach AP US History. In addition to this certification, I have extensive course work in sociology and psychology. Utilizing my knowledge of psychology, I incorporate brain based teaching strategies to improve a students ability to not only learn new material but also to retain it. In this time of high stakes testing, this helps students to show mastery of key skills and growth. As your tutor, you will get rigorous and relevant instruction. You will see academic growth and have fun while you are learning.

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.

Elementary Math

I am certified to teach 6-12 Mathematics. In addition, I have taken graduate level coursework on brain based teaching. These classes have provided me with strategies to utilize that increase learning as well as the retention of what is being taught. I incorporate the use of technology in each session to improve student learning.

Prealgebra

I also have been trained in brain based teaching strategies, with particular emphasis on gender based teaching strategies. I am certified to teach mathematics from the 6th-12th grade. This allows me to provide remediation by building on existing skills, as well as enrichment by linking Algebra skills to future concepts that will be taught.
