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 school, 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. I have been Science Dept head in CT and here 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 and 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 chosed as an item writer for the nation Biology Praxis exam. In July, I will be teaching Biology at Achievement First Amistad Academy in New Haven. I am going in to my 36th year as a high school science teacher, the first 23 in CT and the balance in Arizona.

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!
John is the most amazing tutor. Extremely patient and thorough. I was concerned about finding a good tutor in this subject matter (Anatomy and Physiology) at a college level but John has an amazing background in teaching this subject and was able to help my student not only "learn" the material but actually "GRASP" what he was saying and be able to restate the material in her own words. True gain of knowledge.
I would recommend John as a tutor for any student wanting to get a better understanding of these subjects.
Thanks, John! Job well done!
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.
