About John


Bio

I seek to find the best way to engage a student and pique his or her interest in a subject whether it be from thought-provoking examples or exciting future uses for particular knowledge.

From my experience this is immensely helpful for developing and actually retaining mastery of a topic. Every student learns best in a different way and it is my goal to find what works best for helping a particular student and tailor my teaching method around that.

I seek to find the best way to engage a student and pique his or her interest in a subject whether it be from thought-provoking examples or exciting future uses for particular knowledge.

From my experience this is immensely helpful for developing and actually retaining mastery of a topic. Every student learns best in a different way and it is my goal to find what works best for helping a particular student and tailor my teaching method around that.

My first teaching experience was instructing undergraduates in several different computer science classes while pursuing my master's at UCR. I taught within both lab and classroom settings on a group basis.

Additionally, I was often explaining concepts or walking through difficult problems with students on a one-on-one setting both online and in person when they needed additional help.

This in and of itself was very rewarding, but it also allowed me to continue improving my understanding of the subject area as I searched for new ways to challenge them and analyzed different ways they approached those challenges. Thus, I am looking forward to continuing to teach students whenever I have the time.

I have been working with computers my entire life. Whether it's writing a simple script to help automate a tedious task, or developing my own game. I have experience coding in C#, C++, Python, Java, Matlab, and some basic html/css.

If you'd like to learn more about how I might help you improve your studies or understanding of math or computer science feel free to reach out. Or if you just have a problem or concept you're struggling with there's a good chance I can come up with a quick way to help you work through a way of intuitively understanding it.

Great teacher

Great understanding of his craft, very helpful!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Really patient and understanding, we went through numerous errors and figure them out along the way!

Be, 2 lessons with John

Excellent Tutor

John is an excellent tutor. We hired him because we had difficulty understanding a very difficult concept. He was well prepared with a lesson plan and was very easy to communicate with. His follow-up skills were great and he promptly sent us a recording of the session after the meeting. We highly recommend him.

Veena, 2 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

John is a great tutor and he really understands python. He walks through each problem with you and goes through it until you understand the problem yourself. I would definitely continue using John as a tutor for Python.

Sam, 6 lessons with John

Knowledge and friendly tutor

He helped me fix up my ultimate tic tac toe code. He was very patient and took me through each line of code, making sure I understood everything clearly. Truly would not not be able to understand python otherwise !

Nuha, 4 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

I was struggling with writing python codes that involve heavy coding and I had no prior knowledge about python but John help me out with every steps by steps on how to come up with python code. He is a great tutor.

Pema, 7 lessons with John

Super Patient and super helpful

He made me feel comfortable, when I myself was uncomfortable and confident in what my school taught me. With no reflection to the school it was an intense class !! But John did an amazing job, thank you

Michael , 6 lessons with John

excellent programmer!

I was very much considering dropping this class because it’s difficulty was much more than I expected. John has helped me work on some of the toughest programming projects I have ever had. He has helped me to maintain an A despite the complexity. Very talented programmer!

Knowledgeable Tutor

John was very responsive to my inquiry and was flexible about meeting times. He is very knowledgeable about python who can articulate complex subjects in simple terms. We worked through problems where he helped tremendously. If you want to learn anything in python, I would recommend him as a tutor.
