I am an experienced math tutor who is proficient in all levels of math from middle school to high school and into college. I am certified in CT to teach math in grades 7 to 12. Specific subjects I tutor include Pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, Probability, and Statistics. I have consistently proved myself as an effective instructor, sensitive to the background knowledge, interests, and learning styles of the students. I am very patient and break down solution methods into simply steps. When starting a tutoring session, I always make sure the student understands the concept of the lesson before trying any problems. I connect topics with real world examples to maintain relevancy for the student. When students get stuck, I do not just give them the answer, but I use lead-in questions to steer them in the right direction. I genuinely love to teach math and truly care about my students.

Also, I am strong in standardized test preparation. I tutor for the complete ACT and SAT tests as well as math prep for GRE, GMAT, ISEE SSAT, and ASVAB. My results have been very good in improving test scores.

I tutor most frequently in Ridgefield, Redding, and Easton, but also service the surrounding areas.

In addition, I have three children who have graduated college. My interests include coaching youth sports, home remodeling and repair, and fishing.

Great Pre-Calc tutor!

John has been tutoring my son for Pre-Calc for a few weeks now. He is great to work with and my son has been doing much better at school now. I highly recommend him for any students struggling with Pre-Calc.

Ruchika, 19 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient

Excellent last minute help for my son. Very patient and helpful. Will definitely work with him again. His help made my son feel more confident to try on his own

Vera, 1 lesson with John

Single Variable Calculus

John was just great, very knowledgeable and did not waste any time, jumped right in and gave his full expertise for the full time allotted. I would recommend him highly to other college students looking for an edge.

Nicholas, 3 lessons with John

Another good calc lesson

John has ongoing appts set up with my teen son to develop calc skills prior to taking in college. My son likes working with him and I think this is working very well.

Jennifer, 27 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient

My daughter was struggling with some complex concepts in Calc II and John was able to explain and help in many areas.

Seema, 2 lessons with John

Awesome teaching methodology, teaches students to solve problems.

John is very patient and helps students by not providing the answer but helping students to become problem solvers.

Alex, 2 lessons with John

Great explanations on how to solve hard problems!

John has a knack for identifying where the gaps are in my understanding of a subject. He then clearly explains how to approach solving a specific type of problem and then practices applying that solution. As a result, I really understand the solution. John is the shortest path to successfully understanding the subject.

Stewart, 31 lessons with John

Patient

Continued to work through all the word problems that I keep struggling with. Helped raise my understanding of calc!! Thanks

Olivia, 15 lessons with John

Very Helpful and Detailed

John visited with us for the first time last week and we found him to be very helpful and detailed with Pre-Calculus instruction. We look forward to his upcoming visits.
