John recently helped me with proofreading and grammatical English tips. He is highly experienced teacher and knows a lot about different fields and cultures which makes him to understand better what you exactly are trying to say and can help you to translate them in a perfect possible way. He is very patient and has a great sense of humor which makes the sessions more fun. You learn a lot without getting bored! He not only is very knowledgeable but also very responsible person. Despite his busy schedule, to help me to complete my work before my deadline, he made enough time for me to make sure he has reviewed all the important points and has addressed all my questions. I had a great experience with him and appreciate his time and help. He is someone who you can count on him in many ways. I can assure that you will enjoy his lessons and will be highly satisfied.
"Building Confidence in My Student"
- Sharon, Bartlett, IL on 11/22/14
John has done a great job in helping my son believe that he can achieve much higher scores and get motivated to focus his attention on preparing diligently for the ACT. I would recommend John to anyone looking to raise their test scores in the Reading section of the ACT.

"Good with Positive Reinforcement for Beginning Golfer"
- Andrew, Lisle, IL on 5/14/14
John is excellent at encouragement and positive reinforcement. Although there was a little miscommunication about the left-knee-bend element of my swing at the beginning of the lesson, all the other techniques were easy to understand from that point forward. Whenever I had a question to clarify an element of technique, John was good at clarifying the technique with a specific answer. John had a nice balance between letting me just swing for a while and knowing when to jump in and suggest a technique correction. When I made a bad shot, he would let me know what element of my technique produced that bad shot so I could connect my lapse in technique to that specific type of bad shot. John also had a good suggestion about having "one swing thought" every time I swung. This was a useful suggestion because it kept me focused on swinging properly without giving me too many aspects of technique to focus on at once.
"Fantasic ACT Reading and English Writing Tutor!"
- Estela, Lombard, IL on 1/29/14
John is a fantastic tutor. He is very patient and understands what his students are struggling with. He is a good listener, observers and can easily assess what the issue is to help his students. My son needed some help with his ACT Reading and English writing and now he is doing much better and actually looks forward to his sessions with John. I’d recommend John to anybody looking to improve their results in the ACT Reading and English Writing.

- Cheryl, Lombard, IL on 5/24/12
We didn't have time to waste with the test just around the corner, so we appreciated John's quick response. John has given my son a different approach to help him with his reading on the ACT. Because we waited too long to get help, his tips will be something my son can utilize quickly to help him bring his score up a couple points. Thanks John!
"Great Tutor; Knowledgeable, Adaptable"
- Rama, Saint Charles, IL on 5/23/12
John has tutored my child couple of times. He was able to quickly adapt to curriculum we were following and put my child at ease. His broad experience in multiple disciples is a great asset. He is very flexible with timings as well. We will continue to use his services.

I am taking ESL classes with Mr. John. He is very good, took extra time to point out my weakness and encourges a lot. Very statisfying. Flexible with times also. Great, very professional teacher.
"An all around great tutor-teacher tutor and a guitar tutor all in one!!"
- Stephanie, Buffalo Grove, IL on 4/17/12
My son is very comfortable working with John. He is very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. John has been working with his reading and helping him decode difficult vocabulary words by making a word list in his notebook. Also, when he did his social studies reading, he went in details to talk about the different battles which my son enjoyed and also went out of his way to show where the historical battle events took place on the internet map. He is working with my son on his writing now and breaking down on how to make his writing better.
And another plus is after his homework tutor, John teaches guitar lessons so this makes it very convenient for us. He was very helpful and thoughtful by going the extra mile to get the stuff that we needed for their first guitar lessons.
Overall, John is a very knowledgeable teacher, patient, and very good at explaining the materials to my son. He is very flexible with his schedules that we meet with him every Saturday. I am lucky to have found this website and picked John as the first tutor.
"The best value teacher in the whole site"
- Felipe, Lombard, IL on 4/10/12
John takes great interest on what he is teaching. He is helping me on pronunciation skills, which is a hard task. After so many years of mistaken sounds I need of John's patience and encouragement to succeed. He provides both of them in large quantities.
- Smita, Bartlett, IL on 3/30/12
John is a really great tutor. He reviewed some of my papers. He put his best efforts toward my work. He is very nice person and he really has an understanding nature.
"Knowledgeable, flexible and effective tutor"
- Darrell, Hoffman Estates, IL on 3/15/12
John F. did a very good job of putting our daughter at ease, helping to get the most effective use of the time spent. He was able to tailor his vast experience to her learning style, while pointing out different ways to take in the information. He did not tell her the answers and taught how to apply the techniques in the future. Best of all the end result was improved letter grade and skills that she could apply going forward. He was easy to work with to set up appointments and timely with his responses. We will use his services again and recommend John to others.
- Gowri, Schaumburg, IL on 3/7/12
My son likes him a lot. I am glad I found the right teacher for him. Looking forward for many more sessions.
