Patient Math Tutor Teaching for Conceptual Understanding
Hello! My name is Jeffrey. I graduated cum laude with my Bachelor's in math and a minor in computer science. Math is a fascinating subject but for many people can be a hard subject to grasp. Throughout my education, I've come to understand that oftentimes the key to understanding concepts in math is to visually see how these concepts work and to do plenty of practice. This is how I try to direct my tutoring - I show what the concept really means, past all the symbols and definitions, and then...

The Perfect Tutor
Jeffrey has been helping me with Calculus the past few weeks and to say he's been a big help would be an understatement. I never got to take pre-cal in high school or college, (was not a pre-requisite for calculus for some reason) so I went into this course totally blind. Jeffrey has taught me many things about calculus, but always makes sure that I understand the WHY's behind a problem rather than just the HOW's. He's great at explaining things, things that would probably go right over the average student's head in a traditional classroom with a traditional teacher. He makes things make sense. Not to mention, he's very polite, kind, and always ready to help. What more could you ask for in a tutor? Jeffrey checks all the boxes.

Patient and Thorough Algebra Exam Prep
I am a returning college student and adult learner. After 10 years out of school, I decided to go back. I had to take College Algebra. I got through the course but my retention was awful. After that initial course, I then immediately had to take an additional placement exam for consideration into a computer science program. I get highly anxious taking exams. Additionally, I recently found out that I have dyscalculia, which is math dyslexia. I explained all of this to Jeffrey and we got to work. Jeffrey was very patient and never judgmental. He took the time to help develop a strategy that worked for me. With just over 2 weeks to prepare, we came up with a game plan and stuck to it. He customized the problems and practice for me and after six lessons I went in for my exam. I passed with the score I was aiming for on the first attempt! I am so grateful for Jeffrey and his approach to tutoring. He is also very accommodating and flexible with schedules and lessons. I wouldn’t have passed my exam without him. I feel so much more confident in the concepts we studied as well. Super tutor status!

Explains math concepts well
Jeffrey takes time to explain the math to my daughter and is really thoughtful that he explains it in a way she can understand. My daughter is in a virtual Pre-Calc high school class so the explanations Jeffrey provides are priceless.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Jeffrey was extremely helpful in assisting me with my studies of discrete mathematics and foundation of computer science. He helped me with understanding topics that have been difficult to learn in my scheduled lecture classes. His teaching is thorough and easy to follow.
