About John


Bio

I have worked for many years as a mentor in music and math programs. I have tutored math at many grade levels (K-12 and college level classes). I have experience teaching in the classroom as well as personal and group tutoring in Mathematics. I am intuitive in discovering how to help individuals learn math concepts and am able to identify how to help a student reach their academic and artistic goals. I enjoy working with students in one-on-one or in small groups settings. I am skilled...

I have worked for many years as a mentor in music and math programs. I have tutored math at many grade levels (K-12 and college level classes). I have experience teaching in the classroom as well as personal and group tutoring in Mathematics. I am intuitive in discovering how to help individuals learn math concepts and am able to identify how to help a student reach their academic and artistic goals. I enjoy working with students in one-on-one or in small groups settings. I am skilled at assisting elementary and middle school through college level students with their course work to improve their results (including Common Core Math). I also tutor individuals seeking their GED in general math as well as assist with ACT/SAT preparations in Math. I have taught remedial math and music. I am proficient in geometry, trigonometry, pre-algebra, algebra I/II, pre-calculus, calculus I/II, discreet math, and other mathematical concepts.

I am an accomplished musician, holding a BA in music/performance with trumpet and flugelhorn. I served in the US ARMY in the 296th Army Band in Japan. After exiting the military and obtaining my BA in Music, I spent over decade doing instrumental and orchestral work in Music Ministry in the local church. I am skilled in assisting K-12 through pre and post-graduate students in music theory, general music, music history, and performance tutoring/lessons advance skill levels to professional performance.

I have a sincere and genuine love of mathematics. I thoroughly enjoy working with anyone struggling with achieving personal mastery of math related subjects in their school curriculum. I am adept in assisting them in understanding and recognizing their ability to understand and use math in their classes as well as how it relates to their everyday life. I gain personal satisfaction from my students who struggle with math and consider themselves to be completely lacking in math skills when they have what I call an “aah haa” moment that opens their mind to understanding what we are working on in their tutoring sessions. I have worked with elementary, middle school, and high school students in all areas of math, as well as, teaching developmental math classes and math literacy classes in college.

One of my goals is not to necessarily make a student love math, but to bring them to the place of being able to meet the mathematical goals that may have been placed before them. However, if a student ends up loving math, like I do, that would be great, too.

Patient and thorough tutor

John is working with my 7th grade son on Algebra. He is very patient and has a good rapport with my son. He uses good strategies to help him understand his mistakes and feel positive about what he's learning.

My daughter enjoyed the way he talked her through all steps of her assignment and his explanations helped everything make sense.

Geometry

John is a great tutor. He is knowledgeable and patient. He really knows how to teach math. He explains each step to a problem in a way that it is easy to understand. After our session I felt confident and ready for my upcoming exam.

Dilcey, 1 lesson with John

Excellent Teacher

John was very helpful and taught me how to think through the math problems we worked on without doing it for me. Very friendly and smart. Thanks, John!

The Best

John is such an awesome tutor. Heaters both of my children and they absolutely love him. He is so patient, and is always there when we need him. I highly recommend him. To anybody that needs a math tutor. My three year old German Shepherd even loves him, and she doesn't like many outsiders.

LOUIE, 12 lessons with John

Great tutor

John is very knowledgeable and very attentive. He explains math in a way my son can understand. Finally my son is excited to learn math. Very affordable for all the knowledge he is bringing to the table. He even took the time to explain my son's test scores to me. I’m happy to have found him!

Patrice, 10 lessons with John

Takes time with students

Took the time to explain to my daughter all the difficulties that she was having with her math problems. She said that she was able to understand the way he explained it and felt more assured of her test coming up.

Marilu, 4 lessons with John

Subject expert and prior teaching experience

We are pleased to have John working with our 13-year old daughter. He is patient and helpful. The convenience of having him come to our house is super. And the cost is extremely low
