Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed.

I'm a Ph. D chemist trained in a prestigious US university and extensive experience in teaching and tutoring in high school sciences, freshman General Chemistry, sophomore Organic Chemistry, and advanced chemistry courses.

Through one-on-one and group tutoring, the subjects will be presented in a way that caught interest, clarified difficult topics and led student(s) through complex areas, and put knowledge into context so that its relevance was apparent.

As a chemistry educator, especially one who is tutoring at the high school and undergraduate levels, I will bring a lot of energy to my student(s). If I can't get excited about my subject, why should my student(s)? Another important element of my tutoring is encouraging reasoned thinking and rational problem solving, especially in developing logical arguments.

30 year classroom teacher with experience in elementary, middle and high school. I am very patient. My students will preform better in classes and gain confidence in mathematics. I am particularly interested in helping students at the Algebra 1 and Pre Algebra levels. When students really understand Algebra, there is a better chance of success at higher levels and College Board exams. Help with homework, or teaching concepts from scratch. I can help.

I had Mr. F. for pre-algebra. He was by far one of my best teachers. I always felt comfortable asking questions and letting him know if I had any problems. Besides school work, he was very fun to talk to and had the best stories. I highly recommend you choose Mr. F. as your tutor! You will enjoy math for finally!

I had the pleasure of working with Patrick at Cadwallader Middle school. I was in the behavior department and I am no mathematician. Patric has an uncanny ability to explain math to anyone. He will break down each component until the whole concept is understood. Through his guidance I was able to understand concepts and help my students. Patrick is not only great for the students, he is there to help lost parents understand the concepts that students are learning today.

He also taught me how to identify key words that would help me select the correct equations to solve the problems. I don't think I would have passed the class without his help.
