About John

I am an attorney with extensive background in preparing students to excel in high school, college and beyond. Many of my students have attended elite independent schools and colleges. Expertise includes teaching standardized test prep, math, English grammar, reading comprehension, vocabulary, essay writing, study skills, effective note taking in class, self-teaching techniques, entrepreneurial skill development, and practical life skills.

Exposure to hundreds of students. Have taught math to students ranging from elementary school age up through post graduate high school. Classroom and one-on-one teaching experience. Uncanny ability to simplify and demystify learning math.

I am a voracious reader and have an unlimited vocabulary. I have an excellent ability to instill confidence in students, and teach them the importance of developing their reading skills. SAT students frequently raise their scores well over 200 points.

I also have an extensive background coaching youth sports ( specialty is girls basketball / have helped countless girls gain admission to college and play college basketball ). My forte is motivating young people to achieve their academic and athletic potential. Exceptional package of skill sets including interpersonal, counseling and communications abilities which translate incredibly well when establishing rapport with young people.
