Hello. My name is David Jeffrey. I hold a Ph.D in organic chemistry and have been educated at the State University of New York, Harvard, Berkeley, and Stanford. I offer tutoring services in the subject areas of chemistry, organic chemistry, and environmental science.
Learning chemistry at any level can be a challenging undertaking, no question. But it is far from the impossible task of its reputation. Over a 15-year career as a full-time chemistry teacher, instructor, and tutor, I have been successful in substantially helping students gain a much improved understanding of chemistry, and improve their test scores.
I have taught at the middle school, high school, accelerated high school (AP/IB), and college/university levels under the following curricula: U.S. Common Core, NGSS, State of Georgia, AP, IB, and New Brunswick/Canada. This extensive body of academic experience, along with my professional scientific background, allows me to provide students with highly effective teaching and tutoring.
I am also a Google Certified Educator, and am very comfortable with a wide suite of “edtech” tools, including: Zoom, Skype, Google Docs, Google Classroom, Kahoot, Quizlet, PhET simulations, and many others. I have extensive experience in ‘flipping the classroom’, ‘project-based learning’ (PBL), and other modern and effective pedagogical methods. In this time of social distancing, I am able to deliver high-quality tutoring services within a safe environment.
If you find yourself struggling in chemistry, know that you're not alone! I have seen many fine students over the years hit a wall when it comes to courses in the chemical sciences. If you are in need of assistance in chemistry, organic chemistry, or environmental science, I am confident that I can help you.
