GED,

GED

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.

I have taught both Accuplacer math and language prep classes at a community college in Boston. The skills covered on the Accuplacer are similar , if not identical, to those cover on tests such as the TEAS, GED, and HISET.

Great tutor

John is super great, and explains things in a way that isn’t complicated or hard to grasp simple as 1 2 3, wish I had him as a tutor in school I’d probably be a lot farther !!

Shannon , 4 lessons with John

Best tutor there is!

John used analogies that helped me remember everything he taught and he was beyond patient and never made me feel dumb for not knowing even the most basic things. Highly recommend!

Whitney, 6 lessons with John

great and knowledgeable tutor

John was prepping me for my TEAS test and did great job on every subject that was required. I like how he explains and breaks everything down, which makes it easy to understand and remember things. I passed my test on the first try thanks to John's help. Strongly recommend.

Natalia, 11 lessons with John

Such a great tutor

Following the tutor's instructions which has helped me improve much more that I first started, developing skills that I had hidden and using my native language as a extra tool. I could say that he is such an extraordinary tutor. He knows how to work and organize the issue making his teaching as an universal tool to cope with most of the subjects that one's focused on.

Patient & knowledgeable

John is helping my rising 8th grader with math, and he's great! Very patient, and building the confidence my son needs. John exudes behavior that shows he is concerned with meeting the needs of his student. He also ties in things meaningful to my son, like soccer & basketball. I am very grateful.

Michele, 4 lessons with John

Excellent Teacher!

John helped me with my TEAS test. He was always so patient and helpful, as well as very knowledgeable about material. He is as well encouraging and positive. If I didn’t get something he would explain things until he made sure I was confident in the subject. Couldn’t have done it without him! Highly recommend! :)

Patient, knowledgeable, and organized!

My first session with John was today! It was great, and had me feeling very confident after just one hour! I will be using him for the rest of my studies and for future use.

Amanda, 3 lessons with John

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.
