About John

I come from 3 generations of teachers in my family, including both my mother and father. I guess you could say teaching is in my blood. I've been teaching for 20 years and tutoring for most of them. I have a B.A. in Political Science from University of Delaware. I am certified by the State of Delaware in the subject of social studies to teach students in grades 6-12. I have been teaching this subject for 20 years

I have been honored to be recognized as the building teacher of the year 3 times. Most of my experience is with middle and high school kids. For much of my career, I have worked with at-risk students. I am a social studies teacher by certification, but I am competent in the other major subjects as well. I especially enjoy teaching math.

My goal as a tutor is to help students become independent learners who believe in themselves and who can apply universal study skills for future academic success.

I excel at teaching math concepts to struggling learners because I struggled so much with math as a child. I understand the frustration students feel when they just can't seem to get it because I've been there. I've been able to develop strategies that simplify math concepts and I have been very successful teaching those strategies to kids.

I love teaching and learning about the fascinating subjects of math and history.
