Introduction: Many tutors do this as side work. I work full-time professionally as a tutor and uphold the highest professional standard. I put together lesson plans, tailoring programs individually to students so that I am teaching in a way that they can best understand. I refine and adapt my programs as we go, based on the results I'm seeing. This ensures that students receive an experience that is above and beyond the rest. My only goal is to raise grades and test scores, and I never lose focus or deviate from that goal for one second, and I ensure that my students feel motivated, interested, and engaged, which makes all the difference. I love the creativity involved in unlocking a student's best performance. Every student has a different approach to schoolwork and tests. Deciphering that approach and taking it to a higher level is a challenge and one that keeps the job exciting!

Our daughter went from a 29 to a 34 on her ACT. Obviously this has opened up a new realm of colleges she can apply to, which is exactly what we'd hoped for. Jeff did an excellent job at teaching the tricks of the test and training her to get a top score.

Jeff is a great teacher, he is very thorough, patient and makes sure that my son fully comprehends the material before moving on to the next subject.

Jeff helped us out with SAT prep. He was always on time - literally on the dot. His service is top notch. We were looking for a competitive program and have been burned by Compass. Jeff is a professional and got the job done. From beginning to end, a 350 point rise in score.

Jeff over-delivered in every way. He promised that his techniques would have an effect on my daughter's scores within 6 weeks for her next test. Her SAT score went from an 1130 (after working with Compass no less!) to a 1400. He emailed out homework assignments each week broken into daily tasks to do, and taught my daughter tricks that helped with each section of the test. It was so great because she typically doesn't do well on standardized tests, but Jeff boosted her confidence and we are THRILLED!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. For a kid who does not traditionally "get" mathematics, Jeff did a fantastic job helping him to grasp the concepts taught in his class, and went above and beyond in every way!

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been teaching since I was in college, both as a teacher aide, and within individual tutoring groups. To set myself apart from the others, and to better identify with my students, I retake all the major standardized tests each year. This helps me to be a better tutor because it ensures my scores are always current, it shows me all the little changes in the tests year by year, and it allows me to empathize with my students' experience in taking the test. I look at myself as a continuous student. I'm always looking to learn more and grow.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I work with a lot of students who attend competitive private schools and are looking to gain an edge in an extremely competitive environment. I work most often with students looking to make competitive scores on their standardized tests (ISEE, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT). I also work with students in academic subjects. I find there's a unique experience to be had with each and every client. I also specialize in working with students with ADD/ADHD or with organizational problems. I am able to help these students break down mental barriers they've put up and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    The easiest way is with specific questions. Try asking what some of the strategies are that the tutor uses, or ask if they have any specific stories. This is the easiest way to gauge a good tutor. Just because a tutor went to a good school or has gotten a great test score doesn't necessarily mean he's a good teacher. That's why a specific story will give you the info that sets one tutor apart from another.
