I have 9 years of experience teaching all levels of high school mathematics in the public schools. I also have more than 8 years of experience tutoring mathematics to students ranging from 7 years old through adult learners.

I have taught and/or tutored mathematics from basic addition and subtraction through calculus. I have also helped students prepare for the SAT (Aptitude and Subject), ACT, GED, MCAS and SCAT tests in mathematics.

All this experience has taught me that all students can learn math and that I have (and continue to develop) excellent skills in convincing students of their abilities and helping students succeed and even excel in mathematics (even if they have had difficulties in the past).

In addition to the strengthening and improvement of existing Math skills, my Math SAT preparation also includes: -"SAT Math". Many problems on the SAT are unlike any that students may have experienced in their Math classes at school. I help my students with "SAT Math" by a) expanding and deepening their understanding of the ideas behind Mathematics; b) showing them how to think on their feet and apply basic Mathematical concepts in novel situations; and c) pointing out a number of helpful "Have you ever noticed how..." facts that school teachers rarely have the time or mandate to teach. -- Test-taking skills. I help my students learn strategies for answering individual questions and for the test as a whole (time-management, in particular).

Methodical and patient

I was struggling in Calculus. I couldn’t find anyone to explain the concepts in simple terms until I found John. He walked me through, step by step and patiently answered my questions. He always made sure I understood the material before moving on. For the first time, not only do, understand Calculus, I am actually enjoying it!
