About John

I'm an explainer. Don't get it? I'll explain it to you.

I'm a tutor who didn't come up through teaching. Although my jobs have been in the television and tech programming fields, my interests have a wider range that that. Like most tech people I have a heavy interest in science and physics, and yes, a lot of the stories I read are science fiction. But I read about a lot more--history, civilizations, mathematics--and try to absorb it all. And then I want to tell people about it. I want to get you excited about it, too.

My training experience has been directly in my work fields, video production and IT, not in the classroom. I have experience training novices on complicated software, step by step, and have written clear guides for others to follow. But I've also tutored young relatives in mathematics and science. I have the patience to go through complicated concepts step by step until they understand, explaining in multiple ways if necessary. I will help you make things just as clear for you, too.

In Mathematics, I have kept learning, even after finishing college, for fun! It's like further levels in a puzzle game: once you learn one level, the next challenge is to master a harder level using the skills you learned. I can tutor advanced Algebra, and pre-calculus.

I have been reading and learning more of Science and Physics all my life. When you learn physics, you are learning how the world will actually work, so you can predict it in detail. From classical Newtonian through relativity, energy to electromagnetism, I can make it clear--and I have the math background that's needed.

I have worked with multiple versions of Microsoft Office through the years, but it's been Excel that I've focused on. In various jobs, I have automated Excel workbooks extensively, including VBA macros and custom UI, and complicated formulas, even the database ones. I can show you how to use its many features.

History is one more subject that's a passion. I've been always been fascinated by world history: ancient, modern, the obscure countries and areas of the world. And how no part of the world was the "center"--an obscure country in one century could become a great power in the next.

I am available online through virtual training, or in person in the Fremont area, in evenings and weekends.

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.
