About the Teacher

My name is Jeff Tobin I have been teaching at Pelham High School since 1995. Prior to teach I worked in industry beginning as an engineer and then department manager for mechanical engineering in several companies over a period of more than 30 years. I chose teaching as a second profession because I observed that the majority of our students find mathematics to be difficult and are put off by the idea of taking a math course. I would like to be able to teach math in a way that makes it far less imposing. I look forward to working with our students and love to see the lights go on as they acquire new understandings.

My education includes a BS from RIT in Mechanical Engineering, An MAT in Mathematics from Rivier College, and several additional courses in Optics, Computer Aided Design, and Electrophotography.
