2x Varsity Cross Country Team Captain who went to state championships three years in a row.

Methodology

I will do it with you to encourage you as much as I can. I am able to listen to your problems. I can come off harsh but that is only because I am trying to help you. It isn't just about mastering a skill or a subject. It is about mastering life more importantly. I take what I teach and try to apply it to general life.

Background

I ran cross country eight years through middle and high school. I still run to keep in shape. I was Team captain a total of four years, two in middle school, two in high school. I went to state championships in tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. I am an Eagle Scout. I understand what it takes to do well, and I know how to coach as I led practices for two years as Varsity Cross Country Team Captain. I graduated high school with a 3.57 GPA. I was in the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps for over seven years and made it to the rate of Chief Petty Officer.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $10/h

Details

I do not charge for cancellations. I only ask that you give me as much notice as possible as my schedule can be very busy sometimes as I balance a job and school.

Jefferson's resume

To the parent of a student needing assistance,

I have lots of experience mentoring others who were not as knowledgeable as me. I was the team captain for the middle school cross country team in seventh and eighth grade. I ran on the varsity team all four years of high school and was team captain in eleventh and twelfth grade. I made it to the state championships in my sophomore through senior years. In the classroom, I helped my classmates who didn't quite understand the material being taught by seeking to explain it in a different way.

On my path to Eagle Scout, I had to instruct junior scouts various skills such as whittling, knife safety, cooking techniques, tips for camping, first aid, and other related skills. As an Eagle Scout, I helped others with broader life skills. I had to explain when the skill would be useful, how to learn the skill, and then teach the skill. This experience taught me that one way doesn't work for everyone. Some people need a metaphor, others want it in technical terms. My experience as a Senior Patrol Leader also helped me to learn how to create a long term training plan to develop new skills and maintain the skills already learned.

As I advanced through the rates to Chief Petty Officer within the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps I had to develop the ability to differentiate my tone based on the situation. Sometimes I had to literally be their in their face, other times I just gave my junior petty officers a vision and they made it happen. I had to teach cadets who were only present because their parents forced them to, at least through the beginning, as time went on I got the majority of recruits to stay with the program and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some left for a variety of reasons. This experience has enabled me to be both harsh and kind. I seek to understand the issue in its entirety and address the underlying problem whenever I am instructing someone on how to do something or about a subject matter I try and make it relevant to
his or her everyday life.

Academically speaking I am knowledgeable about the U.S. government and comparative government. I was a teacher's assistant for a fifth-grade technology classes where I designed much of the curriculum that focused at first on mastering typing but then broadened to learning the not so basic functions of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. I also taught my class how to search for things on the internet and what to look for in a search when they wanted respectable sources.

Working at 7-Eleven has also helped me to develop my interpersonal skills as I have to deal with customers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Admittedly though my hours do vary for the time being so scheduling sessions may be difficult based on my schedule.
