About John

My name is John, and I graduated from Boston College with degrees in chemistry and music, and belonged to my University's Honors Program. I tutored for a chemistry professor in college and discovered my deep affinity for teaching. I possess an extremely patient teaching style, and strive to relay the information to my students in the clearest and most concise manner. I have experienced great success with nearly all of my students. I am also 23 years old, which allows me to relate to my students and serve as a role model for them.

Please contact me to get started. I always appreciate when parents relay any challenges and unique situations!
