My name is John and I'm a postdoctoral fellow in respiratory biology at the National Institute of Environmental Health Science. I have a PhD in molecular toxicology and a Masters in statistics and can make even the most difficult topics in life sciences and math approachable and understandable.
I have experience tutoring graduate, undergraduate, and high school students and have taught college lectures in statistics and biology and toxicology. I have also completed courses in how to teach science in an effective manner.
For the most part, I favor a tutoring teaching style that is interactive between myself and the student. It is my job to reach a student through a variety of methods to ensure understanding. These include examples, problems, and introducing the content in a new and novel fashion to allow the student to comprehend. Specific methods will vary according to each student's needs.
I look forward to helping you succeed in your scholastic endeavors, whether that be applying to college, studying for SAT/ACT exams, or helping with homework assignments and increasing your comprehension of difficult subjects.

I am recommending John H. as a Chemistry tutor.
Through the first quarter of high school, our sophomore son was failing chemistry honors. Our son felt defeated, self-esteem was dropping by the week, and as the teacher presented new subject matter he fell further and further behind.
Mr. H. assessed the coursework and then our son's understanding of chemistry. He quickly determined the areas of improvement needed and went to work filling in the holes by reviewing the class material and labs, added in real-life examples on how to use the formation in everyday life, provided web links to very easy and informative college-level chemistry sessions on Youtube, NC State, and other sites, provided additional homework assignments to reinforce tutor and class sessions. Now into the second quarter of high school, our son has averaged an A after two quizzes and an exam, and a year-to-date average has been raised from failing to a C. Our son's self-esteem has changed greatly and expects to raise the C average to an A by year-end!
Mr. H., what you did with our son is nothing short of amazing. Thank you so much!
John made it fun, interesting, and impactful. He generated lots of questions and gave clarifying answers. Very interactive, not like a lecture teacher. My student is eager for the next lesson. Prompt & professional before, during, and after the lesson.
As an older student, I did not have confidence that I could prepare for the GRE. John has been patient and encouraging. He has helped me decrease my anxiety and improve in the areas that most intimidate me. I know now that I can be successful when I take the GRE. I really appreciate you John!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
John H. passed a background check on 2/18/14. The check was ordered by John through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to John, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
