About John

I am a retired technology executive with a proven track record mentoring, training and motivating top talent. I began teaching as an undergraduate (B.A. Chemistry, cum laude / Phi Beta Kappa, Rice University) and graduate student (Ph.D., Chemistry, Stanford University) and have continued throughout my professional career.

I am currently pursuing a number of avenues to get into teaching on a full time basis at the state college or university level, but this will take some time - and I am happy to take on tutoring assignments in the mean time.

Since I have mastered and applied my educational skills to my work over the last 30 years, I am particularly strong at helping students "see the forest for the trees" - to understand both the broad theoretical foundation for what they are learning, and the important real world applications where this knowledge is absolutely essential.

I seem to have had the best success with otherwise bright students who are struggling to grasp key concepts, having difficulty finding motivation to study, or who just need a creditable adult to believe in them. I have also had the experience of struggling through subjects that seemed beyond my ability - and can help students develop strategies for success in dealing in these cases.
