John is an incredible tutor - his patient and calm demeanor makes for a comfortable learning environment and his easy to follow explanations provide a perfect foundation for further knowledge. He sets you up for success by giving you a way to approach problems and understand what each type is asking for. He works out each problem on a whiteboard and talks through each step-it is insanely helpful! It really allows for you to take things slow and understand what is going where. I used John as a tutor for organic chemistry, I'm a student at UC Irvine and I was in my third quarter of ochem. As a professor himself, John was able to answer ANYTHING I asked and related the ochem I had learned in my previous quarters back to what he was explaining. It really helped me to see the connections between information. Tutoring from John is that one-on-one extra office hour you so need with the professor but never get because of all the students. If you need help in chemistry - this is your guy, he is really really amazing.
Absolutely amazing tutor! Such a sweet guy and is so helpful! He explains everything to me and is always very patient. Finally someone made it make sense to me!
I highly recommend John as a cooperative tutor to all students who are seeking help and improvement in organic chemistry. He's very knowledgeable and informative regarding his subject.
John was invaluable to my daughter through a very tough AP Chem course. He was exceedingly patient and always available. He would even review problems by phone and email for last minute tests and quizzes. John is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He gave her the confidence to succeed in this class!
I came to John for help in Organic Chemistry. He was very knowledgeable about basic and more advanced topics. He explained things in a way that was easy to understand. After he cleared up a few concepts that I was unsure about, he even went ahead in my book and taught me future reactions that I learned later in the course. I highly recommend John as a tutor, he was very helpful.
I chose John randomly from Wyzant database. I needed a crash course in HS chemistry. I wasn't really sure what to expect. Well, it turned out that John is a very gifted teacher, not to mention a PhD in OChem! He is able to convey a difficult and tedious subject in a crystal clear and simple way. Within few classes, he helped me cover weeks’ worth of topics in inorganic chemistry. What helped me make the best of John’s time is to prepare a list of questions prior to the class. Some of the resources that I used explained different topics in a convoluted way. Luckily, John was quick to point out easier ways to understand the issue(s) at hand. I also liked that John’s office is quiet and without distractions. I recommend John without any reservation!
He simplified the concept and broke it down so that it was easy to follow, understand, and apply. It made a huge difference in my understanding of that and helped to understand the concept so well that I was able to explain the same concept to others.
