My name is Jeff. I am available to tutor students in middle school, high school, and college. My current schedule has openings between 3:00 and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Starting June 27, I will be accepting bookings full-time, between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
The first session is free and serves as a consultation where I get to know the student's needs, goals, strengths, challenges, and learning style.
1. I hold a bachelor's degree in history.
2. I hold a Massachusetts teaching license in history.
3. I have completed some graduate level coursework in education.
4. I currently work at a high school as a student aid and I worked two years as a student aid at a middle school as well.
I have a lot of patience and have an accommodating, easy-going personality. Building effective working relationships with students to acquire knowledge and insights is what motivates me. I believe learning should be natural, enjoyable, and relevant to one's understanding of the world we live in. Education is not just about the subject material, it is also about the student's approach and relationship to the material.
I tutor in the following areas of history:
Ancient World History
Modern World History
I love foreign languages and culture. I am semi-fluent in Spanish and German and am effective in foreign language learning and cultural exchange. I welcome opportunities to work with students learning these languages and am willing to help students learning other languages as well.
Lastly, I write often and enjoy editing written work, so I am happy to assist students with reading comprehension and writing.
