About John

I am going in to my 36th year as a high school science teacher, the first 23 in CT and the balance in Arizona. I have taught all levels of Biology from AP to remedial and have taught Anatomy and Physiology at a number of high schools, several of which articulated with community college for college credit. I have taught Biology for majors in CT at a community college for 5 years. I have taught Bio 201 at South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, as well as developing a two year anatomy course for articulation with Rio Salado College for Bio 201 and Bio 202 in AZ. I have been a Science Dept head in CT and in AZ. The past 6 years, before relocating back to CT, I taught AP Bio, Honors Bio and Human Anatomy and Physiology at BASIS Scottsdale, ranked by US News and World Report for the past 2 years as the #2 school in the United States, and the #1 school in Arizona. My AP Bio scores over the past 3 years have averaged over 4 for 125 students, and my SAT II in Biology have averaged over 750, with 10 students earning 800. In 2013, I was recognized as a 'Most Influential Teacher' for a student who was chosen as a Presidential Scholar and this past year, received the same recognition for a student selected for a Coca Cola Scholarship, one of 150 selected nationally of a pool of 100,000 applicants. I have been an AP Biology reader for over 20 years, an AP Biology item writer for 4 years, and have just been chosen as an item writer for the national Biology Praxis exam. I am going in to my 36th year as a high school science teacher, the first 23 in CT and the balance in Arizona. I have taught all levels of Biology from AP to remedial and have taught Read more

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

I have taught Anatomy at various high schools in CT and AZ, as well as at the community college level. I have developed an Anatomy curriculum for three of these high schools, as well as a for a course that articulated with a community college in AZ. My courses blended academic rigor in the classroom with hands on activities coordinated with the class material to further extend their understanding.

Biology

I have taught Biology for over 35 years at the secondary level, have been an AP Biology Reader for over 20 years and an AP Biology Item Writer for 4 years. I have taught Biology for Majors at Community Colleges. I have tutored off and on for over 30 years, and my students consistently improve their understanding and grades.

Botany

I was a Botany major in college, and have taken graduate level Botany courses in my Masters In Bio Ed. I have Biology for over 35 years at the secondary level, and in teaching Bio for Majors at the Community college, have covered aspects of Botany. In tutoring my students improve their understanding, self-esteem and grades.

Physiology

I have taught Physiology at various secondary schools in CT and AZ, as well as having taught Physiology at the community college level. I have started the Physiology course at three of these high schools and developed the curriculum for these schools from scratch. Additionally, I developed a course that articulated with a community college in AZ. My courses combined academic rigor in the classroom with hands on activities coordinated with the class material to further extend student understanding.

Great help! Highly recommend! — John is an amazing tutor. I had been struggling with anatomy and physiology for months and when I started seeing him once a week my grade started to improve. I never would have passed the class without his help. Highly recommend him for any student struggling in anatomy! ...
