About John

I have been tutoring students for 14 years in California, Manhattan, England and Houston, TX.
All of my students raise their scores by at least a letter grade.
SAT students have raised their scores by over 150 points. ACT scores go up by at least 2-3 points

I graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in Mathematical & Computational Science in 2006 and Oxford with an M.S. in Financial Economics in 2010.

I have numerous references, children and adults.

I pride myself on being able to motivate students, while remaining fun, personable and keeping the tone light yet very focused.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Discrete Math

I majored in mathematical and computational sciences at Stanford in 2006 and have been tutoring up to AB calculus and statistics for 14 years.

Statistics was about 1/3 of my math major, and I made an A in my number theory class which had a cryptography portion.

Probability (especially combinatorics) is one of my favorite concepts to teach. Almost all of my kids have raised their scores by at least one letter grade.
