My teaching strategy is a combination of various elements. I am a big believer in the idea that the best way to learn is to teach. To that end, I ask many questions to encourage the student to teach me what they know a...

Jeffrey, helped our daughter with her college algebra 2. She was very pleased and we booked more time with Jeffrey. We highly recommend Jeffrey.
- Philip T. from Santa Rosa, CA
Jeffrey is super knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. My daughter is a hard worker, but she has trouble seeing the ?big picture? in her AP biology class. Jeffrey is a fantastic help for this, and her tests grades have gone up significantly! We highly recommend Jeffrey and are so thankful we found him!
- Kirby B. from Santa Rosa, CA
Jeffrey helped me with some the parts of the cell and their functions as well as the processes of cellular respiration, photosynthesis, and glycolysis. These topics in specific were harder to grasp for me but I now feel far more confident in these concepts for the AP Bio test.
- Harrison F. from Santa Rosa, CA
I had Jeffrey meet with our son who is a sophomore in high school to help him with his Chemistry. With only 1 session, our son already understood the concepts better and got an A on his test!!
- Tori C. from Rohnert Park, CA
Thank you Jeffrey. I appreciate your flexibility and willingness to dive right in to the material. There is not much more than I can say other than 2 days later I got a 97% on my midterm..
- KB K. from Forestville, CA
He was a very professional and nice tutor. They did spend much of their time. On a difficult problem and he did offer not to charge us for the session. They continued to other parts of her assignments and seemed good. It was a late night session and to be fair, my daughter was tired.
- Mickey V. from Beverly Hills, CA
Jeffrey's sense of humor and easy going nature put kids and their parents at ease. He is amiable and knowledgeable. Cool person, friendly and not at all pretentious.
- Lori U. from Petaluma, CA
Jeffrey was great with my daughter's chemistry questions. Now she feels confident for her test. He explained comments very thoroughly.

Alex is feeling more as ease by each session as time goes by. It's an overall a positive and supportive working environment for him.
- Carmelita A. from Sebastopol, CA
He was taught so much in one lesson.My son came home super confident that he is finally understanding AP biology. He was so excited that he finally understood his course . We will for sure use Jeffrey for the rest of the school year.
- Alexa P. from Novato, CA
Our daughter was falling behind in her AP Chemistry class. Jeffrey did a great job in bringing her up to date and making her feel more confident in her studies!
- Andrew K. from Fairfax, CA
After just two sessions with Jeffrey my daughter feels more confident about her chemistry assignments. She finds the sessions very beneficial and that is great feedback from a teenager! In addition, Jeffrey is a lovely guy and has gone out of his way to be flexible about meeting times.
- Robin S. from Greenbrae, CA
Jeffrey worked on reduction of agents. He spent a great deal of time going through examples and confirming that the material was understood. He was great!
- Kate C. from Novato, CA
Jeffrey has tutored my daughter on many occasions and proven himself to be a very valuable family resource. He explains concepts clearly and helps students get (and stay) on track.

My son enjoys working with Jeff. He is helping him a lot to get ready for his final test in General Chemistry 2 in college
- Svetlana R. from Daly City, CA
My son's stress level has decreased tremendously in just one session. Jeffrey has in depth knowledge of chemistry and my son now is enjoying the subject.
- Jennifer S. from Mill Valley, CA
Jeffrey replied very promptly and was available to meet our schedule. He is very patient, has good teaching strategies and was able to explain things well. He also had a good sense of humor that matches my daughter's interests, which helps too!
- Emily M. from Petaluma, CA
My 4th grade son has been tutored by Jeff for a short time and has already seen some nice improvement in his math test/quiz at school. Jeff has nice balance of calmness and rigor that fits nicely with my son's learning style. I recommend him.
- Kert G. from San Rafael, CA
Jeffrey S. has always shown up on time and is very personable. He has been helping my son now for about a month and has made every attempt to to help him to learn his math and chemistry. My son is getting better grades because of Jeffrey.
