About Jeff B.
People study subjects for a great number of reasons, consequently I customize my lessons to each individual student's needs and wants.
We learn different ways. Some of us are more visual, some more tactile, some more intuitive, some more cerebral, etc. Understanding this allows me to adapt to each person's most natural mode of learning so that the material is grasped more easily (therefore more quickly), and so that it is retained longer.
I would be honored to share my experience and knowledge with you.
