About John

I've been a tutor now for four years and I love my job! I specialize in Calculus and Physics, but also teach algebra, SAT/ACT prep, and precalculus. I really look forward to the "AHA!" moment when a student finally understands the concepts that I'm trying to communicate. I understand that math and science can be very frustrating to some students. I can definitely help you!

I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island and working towards my Master's in Electrical Engineering at NC State. I currently work full-time in the field of electrical engineering. Math and science have always been my first love. I found out that I had a natural ability to teach when I started helping out some of my classmates in Calculus I, II, II and Advanced Engineering Mathematics. I also have background in MS Office products, JMP (statistical software application), MATLAB, Python, C# and C++ programming.

I specialize in ACT, SSAT and SAT test preparation as well as Precalculus and Calculus I, II, and III, differential equations, advanced engineering math and applied math with physics. I can also help you in Algebra 1 and 2. If you're struggling, please contact me. You'll like the results. I'm friendly, caring and have a real passion for teaching. I look forward to working with you!

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.

ACT Math

ACT Science, reading, and math teacher for four years at Huntington Learning Centers.

Calculus

Four years working with calculus students at Huntington Learning Center. Practicing electrical engineer. Currently have two B/C calculus students.

Differential Equations

I took MTH243 at the University of Rhode Island and got an A. I also currently teach D.E. as a tutor at a learning Center in Greensboro.

Electrical Engineering

I have a BS in Electrical Engineering and work as an electrical engineer. I am working on an MSEE in my spare time at NC State. I specialize in digital and analog circuits, feedback control systems and microprocessor programming.

Physics

A an electrical engineering student I had to take several calculus-based physics classes ranging from Newtonian physics to acoustics and optics to electromagnetics to modern physics. I currently tutor physics at Huntington Learning Center.

SAS

I have been using SAS JMP for over 11 years now on a daily basis. JMP is a statistical software package that allows you to import vast amounts of data through a SQL server/database. You can visualize your distributions, perform design of experiments and correlate data very easily. I hold several certificates in JMP classes that I have taken.

SAT Math

I've taught ACT, SAT and SSAT for four years at Huntington Learning Centers in Greensboro.

Extremely knowledgeable and very patient. — John knows his stuff inside and out. He tutored me in Calculus II and never once did he look at a problem and have to think about how to solve. As a good tutor should, he always encourages the student to think through the problem on their own and offers insight and shows technique when needed; rather than solving the problem for you and just showing you what you need to do. I would recommend John ...
