About John

Hi, I’m John. Being a life-long learner, I love to learn and teach many subjects especially those related to science. I even received a second degree in Physics in addition to my Engineering degrees. I started my academic career in architecture and civil engineering and received a Masters degree in civil engineering then worked as an aerospace engineer on the Space Station. Wanting to learn more about science, I obtained a second Bachelors degree in physics. I have worked in multiple areas including structural design, advanced spacecraft design, database design, and programming.

When I was a graduate student I taught engineering Statics, Dynamics, and Strength of Materials classes.

I find that learning and teaching the fundamentals of physics, math, and engineering are the most enjoyable and hope that I can help you achieve a good understanding of these subjects.

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.

Civil Engineering

I have a B.S.E and M.S.E in Civil Engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona. As a graduate student, I had full responsibility for teaching Engineering Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics. And I also taught an Introduction to Engineering Class as well as a Mechanics of Materials Class. The emphasis for my Master's degree was structural engineering. Professionally I was a structural designer and systems engineer in the aerospace industry for 15 years. I also hold a B.S in Physics from the University of California, Irvine, California.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a B.S.E and M.S.E in Civil Engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona. As a graduate student, I had full responsibility for teaching Engineering Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics. And I also taught an Introduction to Engineering Class as well as a Mechanics of Materials Class. The emphasis for my Master's degree was structural engineering and also included a number of mechanical engineering courses. Professionally I was a structural designer and systems engineer in the aerospace industry for 15 years. I also hold a B.S in Physics from the University of California, Irvine, California.

Microsoft Access

As part of my job at The Boeing Company in systems engineering, I created four database applications using MS Access. These applications included a knowledge management database, a EVA Analysis database, a Flight Log Database, and a Test and Verification Database. These included using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and Structured Query Language (SQL). I also created databases that were web based using Adobe ColdFusion, Adobe Flash and Adobe remoting.

Physics

I specialize in University/College physics as well as advanced placement physics. I can help with both day-to-day homework problems as well as preparing for the AP Test in Physics. One of my degrees is a B.S. in Physics from University of California, Irvine, and I have taught AP Physics in an accredited high school. I have also taught engineering mechanics classes at Arizona State University while obtaining my Masters Degree. If you are trying to get a good grade in either your college course or an AP course, I can help!

Very knowledgeable, nice, and patient!

100% would recommend John! He's very kind and patient. I'm studying civil engineering in college right now and I've had so much trouble in one of my classes. He helped me step-by-step understand my homework problems and allowed me to develop a better understanding of the material. He won't take you asking him to slow down negatively, he is very OK with taking a step back and answering your questio
