About John

I've been a tutor now for four years and I love my job! I specialize in Calculus 1/2/3, Differential Equations, Physics, and Electric Circuit Analysis 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 Bachelor's of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island where I was a member of Tau Beta Pi (RI Beta) and Eta Kappa Nu national honor societies. I'm working towards my Master's in Electrical Engineering at NC State and work full-time in the field of electrical engineering. Math and science have always been my first love. I also have separate research interests in atmoshpheric dynamics/physics and Hamiltonian chaos. I found out that I had a natural ability to teach when I started helping out some of my classmates in Calculus I, II, III and Advanced Engineering Mathematics. I also have a background in MS Office products, JMP (statistical software application), MATLAB, Python, C# and C++ programming.

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

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.

Excellent lesson

My son was very happy with what he learned today John explained things clearly and made it simple. Looking forward to the next lesson. It took some stress off of him to know he has someone who can help explain something he didn't understand in class. Thanks
