About John

Hello, my name is John. I am a Medical School Graduate in the process of obtaining my medical license. I have been tutoring and helping students my entire adult life throughout undergraduate, medical school and post medical school with a profound passion for teaching. I have tutored all academic levels of Math, Science and Spanish to High School and College students for more than 15th years.

I have taken countless number of science courses during Pre-Medical and Medical School, however, I specialize and find the most gratifying teaching High School Chemistry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Spanish.

I believe in always motivating and inspiring my students in a fashion that increases their self-confidence, consequently reflecting in their academic performance and class grades. I am a tutor that can identify student's strengths and deficiencies rapidly, enabling me to direct my attention on strengthening these deficiencies as well as creating an individual education plan geared towards their exams.

I believe in being compassionate, patient, working effective and efficiently, and repeating and re-explaining the school material to my students in different ways until they understands the basic fundamentals and concepts of the coursework. Once my students understands the concept, I make sure they know how implement and apply the concept learned.

In order to achieve the maximum academic results, I make myself available to my tutees for questions between tutorial sessions. I believe no student should wait until the next tutoring appointment for questions that may arise during the school week. My constant availability, tutor to parent communication and my passion for education are an integral part of my high success rate in student academic achievement. For my younger students, I take pride in not only being their tutor but being their mentor as well.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have or to arrange a tutoring appointment. I sincerely look forward to being part of and instrumental to your or your child's academic achievement and success.

Thank you for taking a moment to read my profile.

AWESOME!

John, first took the time to get to know my boys and their struggles in Spanish as well as Biology. I am thrilled, with how patient and educated he is in both subjects. He is able to break down the complicated lessons and teach them how to understand it from their perspective. Not to mention, my boys look forward to having him tutor them. John has given them confidence in their subjects that t
