Unites States Military Academy (Engineering Mgmt)
I graduated from West Point with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Management, and I currently teach mathematics, physics and engineering at an independent school in the Philadelphia suburbs. I have tutored middle and high school students in the areas of PSAT/SAT/ACT preparation, math (Algebra I through Calculus) and science (Physics) studies. In addition to the subject matter, I assist my students with test-taking skills and study habits that will help them for many years to come.
An unsolicited testimonial from a recent student that I tutored in SAT Preparation:
"I got my SAT results, and I'm pleased to tell you that they far exceeded my expectations. I just wanted to thank you for the role you played in this tremendous success. Your instruction made an enormous difference and really opened up new opportunities with my college application process."

John has been working with my daughter, Dara, for several months and we are very pleased with the services he is providing.
Dara feels very comfortable with John's teaching style, as a result she now possesses a higher degree of competency, comprehension, and confidence in her Geometry skills.
Dara has shared with me that she did not do well on her Chemistry mid-term last week. I shared this information with John and at my request John has also begun to work with Dara with her comprehension of Chemistry principals, most recently he cleared up some confusion she had with surface tension and thermal properties, his expalnation turned on the lightbulb for Dara, now she het it to the point that she was able to explain it to me and according to Wikipedia she is spot on with her understanding.
We have also asked John to provide Dara with guidance of how to prepare more efficiently to take the SAT, John has responded that due to the test being standardized, he will demonstrate strategies for every section that will make the test much easier for Dara.
Now here's another value proposition of John's, he's available 24/7, I call this out because he's in EST, I'm in CST, but most recently I have been working on a Singapore (CST+8) and Australia (CST+16.5)workday schedule and I have sent John emails during the early morning hours and he has responded to me within 15 minutes, LOL!!
I'm sure that John will be Dara's tutor for the remainder of this school year and next.
John has helped my daughter tremendously. He is extremely patient, reliable, and plans lessons accordingly. Recommend him as a tutor in Pre-Calculus to anyone.
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.
