I worked for a public accounting firm for two years and qualified for my CPA. I spent my career in finance in Silicon Valley, ending as the treasurer of a $750 million company.

I graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Economics (Minor in Mathematics and Political Science). After three years as a Naval Officer I returned to Stanford for an MBA (finance). I worked for a public accounting firm for two years and qualified for my CPA. I spent my career in finance in Silicon Valley, ending as the treasurer of a $750 million company. I am currently retired in Tallahassee, Florida and have taken up tutoring as something interesting to do during retirement. I have spent several years tutoring Florida State and local high school students. My style is informal, and I like to ensure that my students learn by doing as opposed to my doing the work for them. I have had very positive feedback from my students as to their satisfaction with my services.

Amazing Mind!

John really helped me get a better understanding of Business Statistics. I really needed someone who could explain things to me and help me work the problems. I'm a hands-on learner and John worked the problems along side me so we could match our numbers. I would highly recommend him!

Fantastic.

Easy to communicate with and knowledgeable. Thank you for your help. Will use you again for sure. I used John for microeconomics. He knows his stuff for sure.

Forever Grateful

John has helped me tremendously over the past couple weeks by making Economics not so foreign. He has patience and wants the student to get a full understanding of the material. Thanks John!

Great GMAT/Math tutor

I'm a 30-something MBA applicant prepping for GMAT. John Root is very easy to work with, patient and helpful. Definitely feel like you're with a teacher. Highly recommend.

Fabulous math tutor!

John really knows his stuff - never having to stop to "figure it out." He helped both of my sons complete online pre-calculus - with "A"s!!
