About John

Hello, Students-

I have a B.S. in civil engineering from Valparaiso University. I am currently a medical student at the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Il, and I am a PGA-certified golf instructor. I was consistently in the top 10% of my class during high school. I was a member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and president of my pledge class, as well as a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society for academic excellence. My love of learning and teaching stems from my family – for example, my father is a PhD in engineering and was a professor at Valparaiso University.

I am committed to helping others increase their knowledge of math and the sciences, especially at the elementary, high school, and early college levels. I am an excellent teacher – I explain complex subject matter clearly and in steps tailored for each of my students’ learning styles, abilities, preferences, and personalities. Sometimes math and science can be intimidating – I break it down into simple steps to build confidence as well as skill. I also use relaxation, focus, and memory techniques to help people learn and retain information. I use a custom approach for each of my students.

After working as an engineer for a few years, I then used those skills in the world of professional sports, when I founded the Bohlmann Golf School. I taught and coached golf enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels for their overall mind-body balance and performance. My students included autistic children and the physically disabled.

I currently tutor English via Skype for a friend who lives in Vietnam. This friend is also my Hapkido Grandmaster from whom I earned my Black Belt. I have an international family and diverse global experiences, which I bring to my teaching and to my understanding of my students. I hope you will call me for help with all your learning challenges, and we will tackle them together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Baseball

I played baseball from the time I was a small boy. I was a high school letterman on JV and Varsity. I played on an American Legion travel team in Peoria, Illinois then managed the Peoria Parks and Recreation little league while coaching the all-star team. I have coached individuals in hitting and fielding as well.

Golf

I am a Class A member of the PGA of America. For the past 10 years I have been playing and coaching the game of golf. I have extensive experience working with junior golfers, golfers with disabilities and other professionals.

Organic Chemistry

During my undergrad work organic chemistry was a required course. I have successfully completed the 2 full semesters of classwork scoring above average in each section. Furthermore, as a final in the second semester, I was required to take a version of the American Chemical Association comprehensive exam covering the complete course on which I received a 95% ranking.

Study Skills

I have successfully managed high level organization for 25+ credit hours in medical school while maintaining above average grades in all subjects. I can help students of any level put together study schedules and work within a time budget to maximize results. Organization is one of my strong points and it is a big part of having good study skills.

My peers in medical school look to me to help them create study aids and for direction in how to study for tests.
