Geoffrey was very patient and knowledgeable when it came to tutoring my son on Physics. Our goal was to have my son study with Geoffrey in an effort to pass this difficult class. Thanks to Geoffrey's style of tutoring and the relationship that he built with my son the class was passed successfully. We highly recommend Geoffrey to others for tutoring excellence.

Hello. Vocabulary is one of my greatest strengths. As an inveterate reader I have generally scored very well on vocabulary tests since grade school, testing in the 9th grade when in 5th grade. Also scored 730 of 800 on the SAT verbal test and 730 and then 800 on the verbal reasoning portion of the graduate record exam. Note scoring 800 on the GRE in June of 1997 while a graduate student at UC Davis, placed me at the 99% level.

"All Around Tutoring"
I always had an interest in school, whether it was math, history, or using computer resources. In high school, I went to tutoring, not because I did poorly in class, but because I wanted to excel. The one thing I noticed though was the tutors in the school just kinda got their students through, not to their best abilities. That is why I am becoming a tutor, to give those students the one-on-one learning experience that they deserve. Since I always had this interest I believe it is best to sha... ... More
