Retired Veteran Mathematics Teacher
After a rewarding teaching career in independent college preparatory schools, I retired in June 2014 to focus on tutoring individuals. Over the years I have enjoyed the opportunity to present graphing calculator workshops at mathematics and education conferences including the Teachers Teaching with Technology International Conference, and I make it a point to keep up with innovations in educational technology (this includes software such as GeoGebra, TI Nspire and Geometer's Sketchpad).

Knowledgable, Patient, Understanding, Wonderful!
We've only had two sessions so far, but he's taught me more in two hours than I learned solo in the entire first semester of my online Calculus course. I've always considered myself a dedicated online student, but Calculus was just not clicking for me. I was worried I wouldn't pass the class, and I luckily came across Jeff on Wyzant (thanks, Bing!), and he replied to my e-mail almost immediately. Extremely helpful, very kind, and knowledgable about everything math. He's very patient, great at communicating, and a wonderful (retired) Professor. Will remain tutoring weekly with him throughout the end of my semester. A++++

Fantastic tutor!
I would not have made it through my biostatistics class without Jeff! He is a kind, friendly and very knowledgeable tutor who has a gift for teaching. He was great at explaining and simplifying the material for me and sharing tips and tricks not found in the textbook using the scientific calculator. I had always struggled in math but Jeff managed to make it easy and interesting. He was also very accommodating and flexible on the times we could meet.

Great College Calculus tutor
We contacted Jeff for immediate help in assisting our son in preparing for a calculus final. He was quick to respond to our request, contacted us telephonically to establish a rapport and set up tutoring times that were convenient. He was prompt and very courteous upon arrival. He quickly established trust with our son and assessed rapidly his knowledge of the subject, his areas of apprehension and those which he needed to rebuild confidence or understand the concepts. He did not waste any time in guiding him through problems, reviewing the basic foundation and building at a comfortable speed those areas he needed help in. Easy to understand, very approachable and best of all directing, pushing, pulling and helping at the right pace offering feedback and useful strategies. A seasoned professor who instills confidence. We have more sessions scheduled. We anticipate good results. Highly recommend him as a tutor!

Great lesson!
Jeff provided a great first lesson today. His ability to teach in a visual manner with diagrams and such was extremely helpful for our daughter as she is a visual learner. She found it very easy to follow him and is looking forward to her next lesson. Much thanks
