Are you looking for help in Algebra, Geometry, Pre-calculus or Calculus? Let me help you master these subjects.

I am an experienced college level tutor, with experience as a peer tutor at the College of DuPage. While there I helped many students achieve success in their courses. I can help with common areas of trouble from simply understanding and interpreting the information in class homework to addressing specific areas of difficulty such as solving equations, factoring, graphing functions, working with trig identities, finding derivatives of functions and using them for problem solving, integration and its applications, and many other topics.

My approach is to help you identify and learn the information you need to understand your subject and connect it to the knowledge you already have, in a friendly, informal, intuitive way. I am knowledgeable, patient, and sympathetic to your struggles as a student. You deserve success for the hard work you've done, and I can help you achieve it.

Very professional and patient tutor

John is good at explaining things in simple terms, and very good at keeping my son focused and engaged. His lessons are very helpful! Not only he answers questions precisely but also he give more examples to make sure my son really gets it and can do it by himself! I would highly recommend John to other students.

He handles the subject perfectly and is very patient.

Very friendly and gives you the confidence to ask. The way he explains makes you really learn. Not only teaches you superficially, but teaches you from the bases. Definitely we will continue to require his services.

Very patient, friendly and consistent

Developing stronger java programming skills. John is prompt and thorough and a very friendly person. John doesn't just teach but he applies real world knowledge on applications that can be used in real world settings.

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!

Awesome tutor!

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

Tutor 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.
