Hi! I’m John and I want to be your tutor to help you achieve your goals in your course. I have over 35 years of experience teaching Biology and A & P at the high school and college level. I have a Masters in Biology Education and have worked with all levels of students from remedial to AP in high schools, and Biology Majors and Nursing Majors at the college and university level. I have attended and held many workshops in Biology teaching at the National Science Teachers Association and the American Biology Teachers national conferences. I have been a Woodrow Wilson Summer Institute Fellow in Biotechnology, as well as a summer intern for the American Physiological Society (at Yale University) and for the American Association of Immunologists (at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School). I have served as an item writer for ETS for both the AP Biology and SAT II Biology Exams, as well as an AP Biology Reader and an SAT II Beta testing site.
I do not have a set formula for tutoring, but I tailor my sessions to the individual needs of each student, in order to maximize our time together and achieve the tutoring goals that a student has. I pride myself on getting to know each student, and earning their trust, so that they feel comfortable in asking questions about material that they do not comprehend fully. My sessions are interactive and I work to ensure understanding as well as increasing a student’s critical thinking and analytical skills. I welcome any input from parents that they feel may contribute to the success of their child. Additionally, I work to build a student’s self-confidence when taking a test, as this contributes to a positive outcome in any evaluation setting.
While I no longer serve as a classroom teacher, I greatly enjoy the opportunity to continue to work with students to share my enthusiasm and love of Biology and A & P, and have helped many students further their understanding and career goals.
In addition to tutoring, I enjoy watching sports, especially baseball and professional fo

Knowledgeable and Worth Seeking Tutor

I have now had a clear understanding of the topic in bio and anatomy. It has helped me a lot through critical thinking and getting the topic down. It taught me to have a good note taking skills and learn to analyze the scientific method.

Thomas , 45 lessons with John

Knowledgeable tutor

Great tutor! He has an easygoing manner that really reaches our daughter--she enjoys her sessions, and she really has a much better understanding of AP bio now.

Sarah, 13 lessons with John

Very understanding and clear communicator

He is great about helping me throughout each lessons and understanding both broad and specific questions. I always feel like I understand more after every lesson, and he works from any PowerPoint or study guide that I want. He lets me interject with questions whenever and makes sure to answer all of them, even if he might not have the answer on hand.

Courtney, 15 lessons with John

Great for my daughter's confidence

My daughter's confidence was raised enormously with just one session with John. He helped her realize that she really did understand the material and clearly explained things that she didn't understand. She will definitely continue working with him and is looking forward to her next tutoring session.

John was able to help my son understand cell signalling better.

Laura, 4 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and Patient

John was very patient with my tutoring. I felt that I learned a lot from him. We went over blood flow and the electrical conduct of the heart. We also went over my study guide as well for my upcoming exam. I felt Iike I knew more after the session.

Jessica, 2 lessons with John

Jennifer, 4 lessons with John

Very happy!

Our son took grade 9 bio with John. He said that he learned 2 weeks of material in just one hour and John's review of the materials were much clearer than his school teacher. Thank you John! We will definitely continue to get lessons from him.
