About John

I am a current certified high school math teacher with 12 years of teaching experience. I have a BS in Mathematics with a Secondary Education Emphasis from the University of Northern Colorado and a MS in Statistics from Texas A&M. My subjects with a lot of experience are Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-calculus, and Trigonometry, but I also tutor in Prealgebra, Statistics, and Probability, as well as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. With my experiences as a teacher, I can tailor my lessons to meet my student's needs. I also am able to simplify complex math jargon that is often encountered in college level courses.

I have always loved teaching and tutoring. All my professional life, I've worked with students, from tutoring while in high school and college to teaching in the classroom. I love looking for that "light bulb" moment when a student finally gets a concept and I believe that it is my duty to make as many of those moments happen.

Please contact me to schedule lessons. I am willing to work in individual appointments for single concepts or with regularly scheduled tutoring sessions, either in person or online. I look forward to working with you.
