I have great admiration for individuals who are focused on earning their GED. It show a tremendous amount of courage to face this type of challenge. I find that the most difficult aspect of the process for students is getting past the fear of facing material that is unfamiliar to them. I believe that working together we can build both skills and confidence and that students will find that they have abilities that they never realized they possessed.

Knowledgeable and patient

Very kind and patient! He doesn't waste your time but also really wants you to get the material. Will definitely be my first choice in the future. And also was able to help me figure out how to get connected to each other when we were having some technical difficulties.

He is a great teacher

It was really nice to meet him. He did a good job and I really like him. He explained to me about what I want to know and the best thing is he had worksheets for me. I love it and I definitely need him to help me about my test. Thanks so much.

Went over things needed to pass on exam. John does an amazing job at going at a steady pace which allows one to understand fully what to do with certain problems.

John is a patient tutor.

He helped me with reading, math and Science. I like the way John explain things to me. I am not a fast leaner most of the time, but yesterday I got most of what he taught me.

Joanne, 1 lesson with John

John Is a Great Teacher and Very Patient with Me.

John has been a great tutor. His way of teaching math has made it so easy to understand and solve math problems. I had always had a hard time understanding this subject. With John's help, I'm feeling positive that I will pass the GED test when that time comes. I look forward to working with John on Tuesday.
