"Great Tutor "
Nonna from Closter, NJ on 3/26/14
John is a great tutor. Since he started tutoring my son, my son's grades have improved a lot. Sessions with John give him a deeper understanding of the course material. John's instructions and explanations make the material easy to understand. John always has a positive attitude and is very patient. I highly recommend him.
"Has had a very positive impact, very quickly!"
Kathryn from Oakland, NJ on 12/8/13
My son was having difficulty keeping up in Physics C AP. John has been very helpful in getting him up to speed and increasing his confidence in the material after just a few lessons. Thanks John! I'm sure he will be of more help as we approach midterms and eventually the AP test.

John has been helping my 13 year old get ready for the the math portion of a test. He is very patient, able to teach and communicate well and so far is doing a great job!!

Congratulations on your acceptance into Bergen Academies.
Debbie from Tenafly, NJ on 11/14/13
John is an excellent tutor. He thoroughly knows the material and does not have to re-teach himself each session like most tutors and therefore is able to cover large amounts of material in each session. He helps my son in Honors level courses at a competitive high school and utilizes both print and online sources to teach. John understands complicated material and is able to explain it well. I highly recommend John.
Michelle from New York, NY on 10/24/13
John was a positive result of looking for a tutor on line. He is an amazing tutor helps you a lot and makes the subject understandable. I strongly recommend him.

Irene from Teaneck, NJ on 10/24/13
John tailored a personalized plan of study for my daughter that took into consideration all areas that needed learning or reviewing. He was patient, professional, always well prepared with a lot of study materials. John was very flexible with scheduling study sessions. The result was a great score that my daughter got on her SAT math test.
"Best Metro Area Tutor - BAR NONE"
John from Englewood, NJ on 6/24/13
Speaking from the perspective of a 1-sided verbal test taker - John P. is the best math tutor I have ever had. He comes to sessions prepared, full of materials, and is ready to answer any question you may have. John is able to tailor his program to any need you may have - from standardized tests to regular semester courses - with great ease and professionalism. He is easy to reach via cell phone or text message, and is able to work with almost any schedule the student may need accommodated. If you are 13 or 30 and need some help in tackling math or science, John P. is the first and only accessory you will need for success. Plus he can write upside down!!!
"If you are searching for an MCAT tutor, look no further."
Christian from Ridgewood, NJ on 4/29/13
Mr. P was an outstanding resource to have while preparing for the MCAT. His first-hand knowledge of the nuances and intricacies of this exam were invaluable when determining what concepts were important to focus on and what details were unnecessary to remember. Mr P.'s comprehensive understanding of chemistry and physics were especially noteworthy, as it enabled him to break down many difficult topics into more manageable pieces of information with accompanying strategies on how to understand certain theories and implement a variety of formulae. Although Mr. P. has a very busy schedule, he was able to accommodate two to three lessons per week, and was flexible when it came to meeting times. Combined with his friendly disposition and the ability to write and draw diagrams upside-down, I would highly recommend Mr. P. as your next tutor.
Samantha from Little Falls, NJ on 4/1/13
I am a college student at MSU and John has been so helpful getting me through everything from Chemistry to Intro to research. I am usually a C- student when it comes to Statistics and Chemistry but with Johns help I have been getting B+'s and A's on all of my assignments and Exams! He is very flexible and is always welling to work with my crazy class schedule. John can write upside down and if I have a hard time understanding the concepts he will come up with ways for me to clearly understand what I am learning. I highly recommend John as a tutor!
Jun from Millburn, NJ on 3/19/13
Mr. P. has been my daughter tutor's for a year now. We use him for many of my daughter's tough science subjects, like AP physics, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus BC. We felt very lucky to find such high quality teacher online.
He is versatile, has good knowledge on many science subjects. We like his teaching style. He is often able to pin point the root of a problem and work with the student step by step to clear up the confusion. He also provides students with many source of information and often draws graphs to assist the teaching which my daughter finds very helpful.
Mr. P. usually responds quickly, easy to reach by phone.

John P. is a great Biology tutor. I am preparing for the Higher Biology level IB exam and I'm having great help from John P. The course material is college level and he is explaining it to me with great patience and knowledge of the subject. Can't recommend anyone better!
"He's just great!"
Angela from Fort Lee, NJ on 1/14/13
I'm very happy with John. He's very patient with my son, thoroughly explained all the questions and made chemistry easier to understand. My son has shown improvements on his grade and tests! I would recommend him to everyone.
Dennis from Bronx, NY on 1/13/13
John and I began tutoring for only two lessons now and I feel I have come a long way in the direction I am headed to pre-algebra math. John is skilled at tutoring a difficult subject that always gave me an academic problem for over fifty years. John follows my strengths and weaknesses until I am strong and confident enough to progress to the next topic in the curriculum. John is concerned that I work towards my goal in math and he is there to help me understand how to do it. He drills me like a drill sergeant during the lesson and gives much home-work to practice. I would highly suggest that another person, young or older, who is looking for an "effective " tutor give John a chance to help you, and it will work.
Lisa from Wyckoff, NJ on 11/15/12
My son has been tutored numerous times by John. He thinks that John has a very effective method of communicating math concepts. I will be requesting John for all my son's future math tutoring needs.
Susanna from Stanford, CA on 10/13/12
I can not say enough good things about John as a tutor. We have been, perhaps, one of the stranger families that a tutor has had to deal with. My daughter (11th grade) is in Eastern Europe and having trouble understanding her math teacher. John works with her through Skype with not very good internet and, for the first few weeks, without a textbook. Yet, he has completely changed her perspective on math, helping her with topics such as mathematical induction, complex numbers, and transformations between rectangular and polar forms. Before she was uneasy about math which was affecting her whole outlook on school. Now she knows that with John's help she'll be able to understand the work and excel at it. That makes all of school seem better. Thank you, John.

"Good fit for my child"
Nieves from Franklin Lakes, NJ on 10/10/12
John was a good fit for my daughter, who already is an excellent student. She really needed someone who could tweak her test-taking skills to optimize her score. After the first lesson, John already made specific suggestions to help her.
"The best tutor around"
Morgan from Edgewater, NJ on 9/21/12
John is the best tutor around! He shows everything step by step and always knows how to explain things so you understand the material right away. He is also very patient and flexible. I have had other tutors but none that teach as well as John! I highly recommend John for chemistry and math related subjects!

John was excellent and very accommodating. Most importantly, he knows the material and was able to help my daughter get her top grade!
"This is the guy you want to pick to tutor your child"
Howard from Teaneck, NJ on 3/18/12
Over the years, my children have worked with several tutors in different subjects. I must say that John is head and shoulders above all of them. John has been working with one of my children on their pre-calculas and AP stats work. I have been very impressed with how he is able to identify the main issue and using different approaches help them understand it and how to consistently get to the answer themselves. The result has been and very impressive improvement in his grades and confidence in learing new material. Further, John never raises his voice or uses intimidation as some others do.
I cannot recommend John more highly. You can not get a better tutor.
"Great Tutor, Always Available "
Caroline from Cliffside Park, NJ on 1/14/12
John has been tutoring me for physics for the past semester and without him I would be totally lost in the class! John is very patient and does an excellent job explaining difficult topics. John definitely makes physics easier to understand. He is also always available to answer questions or fit in an extra tutoring session. I look forward to working with John next semester.

Darald from Hackensack, NJ on 10/18/11
Since I have hired John, I have made tremendous progress in my Algebra class after a very rocky start of the semester. My professor does not explain the material thoroughly and moves rather quickly, adding John to my academic profile has not only got me caught up but has moved me to the front of the class academically. He explains the material to rival my professor and explains the work in a an easy to understand way although the material can be tedious and complicated. This was a good choice and money well spent for me.
"Very patient and thorough"
Jennifer from Fort Lee, NJ on 9/8/11
My first tutoring session with John was a great experience. I haven't taken a math course in some time and he was very helpful with breaking things down and explaining them, so I can hopefully get them correct the next time around! After my session with John, I feel confident that I will be fully prepared for my GRE exam.
Leyla from Fair Lawn, NJ on 3/29/11
Mr. P helped me prepare for my SAT Is and IIs. He's a great tutor, very attentive, and he can write upside down for the convenience of the pupil. He helped me get the scores I needed to gain acceptance into my preferred universities. You'd be nuts not to hire him.

"Patient, Encouraging and Flexible!"
Zenobia from Newark, NJ on 11/5/10
John helped me get through a Statistics class. At the beginning I had basically zero knowledge of statistics, but John was incredibly patient with me. He explained the terminology and steps to answer and complete statistics questions and SPSS outputs. Additionally, he was very willing and able to answer questions and was also accessible and flexible with his time. By the end of the class, which I successfully completed, I felt more comfortable and even a level of confidence approaching the course content.
Julia from Saddle Brook, NJ on 10/10/10
John has been working with Julia for a couple of weeks. He has a way of explaining the physics concepts so that she understands them, and her confidence has increased tremendously in this subject. We are very thankful to have found John as a tutor.
