About John

Hello, Students-

Please allow a brief introduction:

I have a very broad education and can help you accel at your studies in many subjects.

I am a recent graduate of the Naturopathic Medical program at the National University of Health Sciences. I have a B.S. in civil engineering from Valparaiso University. I was consistently near the top 10% of my class.

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 believe 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.

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.

Anatomy

I've been through anatomy cadaver study and in-depth physiology classes in med school and excelled at each!

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.

Biology

My education in the life sciences (including biology) has culminated in my earning a doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine.

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.

John seemed to keep my son on task, helping him focus on the concepts, and worked with him thoroughly. Ryan stated that it was a very good and helpful tutoring session.
