Let's make this fun! Math lessons need to be handled in such a way that the student actually looks forward to them. I will make sure that they are enjoyable as well as informative. My success in the classroom was always based on the fact that if I can make the student look forward to class then they will succeed.
I know there are several tutors out there that charge less than I do but ask if they are certified math teachers or are they just filling in until they can get another "real job." This has been my career and just like I don't go to a student dentist, I don't look for the cheapest professional be it an attorney, doctor, or mechanic to fix my car. This is your child's education at stake so please select a tutor that is a professional educator whether it is me or another teacher.
I have twenty years of teaching experience. I have taught all levels of math from grade 8 through calculus as well as at the college level. I am Texas certified and currently teach at Tarrant County College. I focus primarily on SAT and ACT prep as well as high school and college math.
I majored in math in college and have a Master's degree in Mathematics. My students have consistently improved their SAT scores by 200 points overall and raised their class grade by one letter grade. I try to make math fun for my students and work at a pace that the student can maintain.
I will meet your student at you home or a nearby location of your choice. If after your first lesson you don't feel I'm the right fit for your student just let me know and I won't charge you for the first lesson. Let's make this fun!

Jack is an excellent tutor. Punctual, extremely knowledgeable, but most importantly my 17-year-old son who was struggling with Pre Cal after the first two lessons with Jack thought he was a genius. Jack patiently worked with him through the basics and now my son has a greater understanding of the subject matter with the result that his grades have improved enormously.
My son has ADHD and can get discouraged very easily. John is very patient and calm. A perfect fit for Math. Thank you.
Mr. John has a very unique gift of patience and understanding. He has helped my son reach his goal of passing high school chemistry. He help my son go from a failing grade to passing his final with an 88 and a course final grade of 94.
Mr. John is very good at making the unexplainable easy to learn and read.
Thanks for all your help!!!
John is encouraging, patient and was able to quickly identify my daughter's gaps in Algebra I and II. I won't use anyone else, so please don't ever retire!
So far I have been very pleased with the professionalism of the tutor I found for my son. He gives me feedback every time and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns I may have.
John is a very patient tutor and explains algebra in a way that is understandable. He is an excellent teacher and I would recommend him to anyone having trouble with the concepts of algebra. Extremely qualified and well worth the effort and time!
Very good tutor. My daughter learned a lot. John was able to assist her in writing essays and getting her beyond the brain storming session.
John is very brilliant and excellent teacher, after one lesson my confidence and understanding is much improved. I highly recommend him.
John (Jack) was a great tutor. He was always available and he was always early for our appt's. Good ideas on how to remember what we were working on. Overall grade A+
Jack is an amazing tutor. My daughter was having a great deal of trouble in Algebra II. Jack helped my daughter understand some important concepts which helped her do significantly better in class. Jack is professional and always on time. I highly recommend this tutor!
Since my daughter began working with John, her confidence in the subject matter of Algebra has propelled. He has a way of explaining the material in a very unique fashion, but non threatening and very patient. He is always early for every session and punctual. This has been a fantastic experience for our family, and we plan to continue utilizing Mr. John for as long a possible. I appreciate how user friendly this website has been for us and the sense of urgency that John shared with us as committed parents. I have recommended this site to may of my friends, because it's exactly what we were looking for and God definitely answered our prayers.
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.
The ACT Math test covers Algebra 1, 2, and Geometry plus there are four to six basic trigonometry questions. The test is a very direct test, meaning unlike the SAT the question is asked with no tricks. They are just testing the students knowledge of high school math. I have helped many students increase their math score by 4 to 6 points. This is done primarily by identifying any weakness in their background and building on that.
I have taught Algebra at the high school level for over twenty years. It is a key to understanding later math classes and the basis for all math that follows. I have had a great deal of success helping students increase their grades by at least one letter grade.
I have over twenty years of experience teaching Algebra 2 at the high school level. I have also taught College Algebra. There are several concepts introduced in Algebra 2 that are not in Algebra 1 such as logs, conics, and complex numbers beyond the basics.
I have a masters degree in mathematics and have taught high school Calculus for several years. The hardest part of Calculus is the first half. Once this is mastered the rest of the course is very straight forward and essentially depends on Algebra skills. I have had several students increase their average by one to two letter grades with tutoring.
I have over ten years experience teaching high school Geometry. I have helped many student increase their average by more than one letter grade. Geometry is a challenge for a lot of students because it is so unlike other math courses that they have taken. Often it is the first time the student ever had any trouble in math.
I have a master's degree in Mathematics. I have also passed two of the actuarial exams. Logic is an integral part of all levels of math and first encountered before high school. It is especially utilized in Geometry and higher mathematics. I have taught courses through Calculus and everything before that. I took one logic course while working for my master's degree in math.
Prealgebra is the key to success in all future math courses. The basics learned in this course help in many ways determine the student's success in Algebra as well as Geometry. I have over 22 years of secondary mathematics teaching experience and over 5 years of one-on-one tutoring experience.
I taught Pre-Cal for four years here in Texas. The challenging part starts after the review of Algebra 2. This covers Trigonometric functions and continues into new areas. The last part of the course deals with limits and is actually an introduction to Calculus.
I have taught Trigonometry for several years in local high schools. It can be difficult at first but most students catch on quickly with some one on one tutoring.
