Qualtrics

I'm an online student and have little access to colleagues who are also using the Qualtrics platform. John patiently and masterfully assisted me getting started with the quantitative research portion of my dissertation.

Steve, 1 lesson with John

Extremely smart and patient tutor

John is one of the smartest tutors I have ever had and knows how to explain concepts and problems with ease. He knows how to explain the complicated concepts in my physics class better than my teacher and is very knowledgeable.

Max, 2 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He was a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He helped in technology and coding. He arrived on time and helped explain the issues very clearly. I would highly recommend him and use him again for any subjects that he tutors in.

NVivo Tutoring

We went through the basics of NVivo such as how to create nodes, classes, classifications, and queries. The details and descriptions provided by John were spot on and very easy to comprehend. Overall it was a great session!

Great tutor.

John P. Is a great tutor. My daughter had a lot of questions before a big test, after only one hour she felt happy, relieved, and prepared for a test. John was nice, pleasant and very knowledgeable.

Knowledgeable about BC calculus

John was very knowledgeable about the material and I liked the use of the white board and covered material that I have not learned in class yet. I was able to easily understand the material. I had excellent first lesson.
