Bio

Hello, students!

I am a current Ph.D candidate, pursuing my dual degree in Physics and Computational Science, Engineer, and Math (CMSE) at Michigan State University.

I received my Bachelor's from Trinity College in Physics, Classics, and Mathematics, all with honors. I was near the top of my class and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I was an active member of multiple tutoring services on campus during all four of my years there, and traveled to Thailand to teach English before I entered...

Hello, students!

I am a current Ph.D candidate, pursuing my dual degree in Physics and Computational Science, Engineer, and Math (CMSE) at Michigan State University.

I received my Bachelor's from Trinity College in Physics, Classics, and Mathematics, all with honors. I was near the top of my class and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. I was an active member of multiple tutoring services on campus during all four of my years there, and traveled to Thailand to teach English before I entered into graduate school. I have always loved learning a plethora of subjects, academic and otherwise, and bring my full weight to bear in everything I pursue.

On the tutoring end of things, I have loved tutoring and teaching others since I began in high school. While at Trinity, I tutored privately, in groups, and TA'd for labs. I volunteered at the local middle school and helped found a Science and Mathematics suite devoted to tutoring the campus. Fostering knowledge in others has been a passion of mine for many years.

My approach has never been to give students answers, or to supply simple one-time techniques. I always aim to foster confidence and build understanding from the ground level up. I instill a mode of thought that facilitates problem solving and knowledge assimilation. If my initial explanations are inadequate, I will happily switch gears until my approach suits you, the learner.

I also offer free email support between tutoring sessions. Whether you need more material or have a question, you are welcome to email me.

Thank you for considering my services and enjoy!

John B.

I hold a degree with honors in Classics from Trinity College. During this time, I intensively learned Latin and Ancient Greek and took several classes in both Norwegian and German. I have sense dabbled in Thai and Russian. Though I am by no means a grammarian in any official capacity, language and grammar have been a passion of mine for many years. I am willing and able to help any student with grammar!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

After only my first lesson, I felt that John really helped me understand the math that I was confused on, along with showing me tricks to help me reduce mistakes and quicken the processes within the problems we worked on. On top of that, when I was confused or struggling with a problem he was very patient in helping me work through it. I will definitely be taking more lessons from him in the future.

Great review of College Algebra in Preparation for final

John did a great job and was easy to understand. We reviewed old tests and practice tests in preparation for a final exam. Hopefully he can help me with my next class.
