About Johnny

My name is Johnny R. I am a UIC graduate and a certified teacher who has taught school for over 25 years and have privately tutored students for over the last 20. I feel confident teaching students in an exciting and comprehensive way. I definitely believe in positive re-enforcement to develop self-esteem and motivation to encourage completion of assignments given. I have helped over 300 tutorial students in this time and have a special talent for encouraging students to reach their full potential. I enjoy working with students who are exceptional or need patience and inspiration to pursue excellence. I also enjoy seeing students change from an "F" or "D "student into an "A "or "B" student within an approximate 2-month period. I look forward to continued success working with your child.
