## Math miracle worker!

After spending the last semester and a half taking lessons with John, I feel that my mathematical abilities have grown tremendously. His approach to solving problems is very easy to follow and very straight forward. After spending some time with John I really started to adopt his approach and style of problem solving, and it paid off big time in both my calculus 1 and calculus 2 classes. If you're struggling with a math course, I would highly recommend a lesson with him. He is one of the best tutors around, and can definitely help you find success in your math courses. Thanks again for all your help John!

Great instructor. He is very knowledgeable about Python/other languages and took the time to explain the answers to my questions in great detail.

Jon, 1 lesson with JohnTutor responded:Heh! Thanks for the feedback Jon! It was fun!

## Good guy

John is very patient and helpful. He is also very honest about what he knows but since math seems to come intuitively to him he can figure things out quickly. If I need math help in the future I would use him again.
