About John

My name is John. I have tutored all Math Levels at Ventura College. Also, I have taught Precalculus and continue to teach both A/B and B/C level AP Calculus to high school students. I have a master's degree in Mathematics, and can help with almost all undergraduate college level classes as well.

I especially enjoy working with people individually, so if they are struggling, I can work with them to figure out where the roadblocks are and to help them to overcome them. In any case, I have the experience and knowledge to provide the individualized help that may not be available in the classroom.

I have taught AB advanced placement Calculus to high school students continuously for fifteen years since 2001. At the college level this is the equivalent of first semester Calculus. For many of those years I have also taught BC Calculus, which at the college level, is second semester Calculus. I am teaching both this year at the high school where I work. Additionally, I have taught Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus, and am thoroughly familiar with all of these courses. I also have a lot of tutoring experience.

Oh by the way, in addition to my technical qualifications, I'm a nice guy too! :). I will do my utmost to help you succeed, and you'll find it easy to work with me.

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.

Differential Equations

I have a master's degree in Math and have taught the basics of differential equations to my AP Calculus students. I am also familiar with applications of Linear Algebra to solving systems of differential equations. Also, solving differential equations almost always involves the skill of integration, which for some equations may be challenging. I have taught Calculus for fifteen years and will be able to provide an understanding of how to solve differential equations requiring the solutions of difficult integrals.

Linear Algebra

I have a Master's degree in Mathematics and have tutored students in Linear Algebra.

Also, I have an excellent textbook (Linear Algebra and its Applications, David C. Lay) that explains with great clarity all of the elementary concepts involved. I can use this text to prepare, and to explain many of the difficult concepts.

Precalculus

If you'd like to know a little bit about me, I've been teaching AP Calculus to high school students for many years, and have also taught Precalculus in the past. But actually, I review Precalculus and Trigonometry with my students at the beginning of each year. If there's anything else you'd like to know please feel free to contact me.
