About JOHN

Thank you for viewing my profile. I believe in helping students learn in a way that is best for them, which utilizes their strengths. There is no cookie-cutter approach, and it is my goal to first figure out the best way to tutor you or your child, and then to continuously analyze that approach and modify it as needed. I believe in breaking down the most difficult of problems into a more manageable and less overwhelming series of steps. This makes learning less difficult and helps the student develop an understanding of steps needed to solve even the most difficult of problems. I would ask that you provide me with the subject matter before hand, so that I may prepare materials for use during and after our session.

I have a degree in Industrial Administration with a minor in Statistics from The New Jersey Institute of Technology. I also have experience playing varsity college basketball and coaching youth sports, both Soccer and Basketball. I was a college varsity basketball player for 2 years, and I have been coaching youth basketball for three years. My specialty with our youth travel squad is one-on-one teaching for all positions, from point guard to center.

My professional experience in the business world has required me to utilize my math, programming and communication skills and to master the ability to teach and train others. I have worked in insurance underwriting, audit, and operational analytics, each of which require math skills. I have been formally trained in SAS and am an every day user of SAS, MS Excel and MS Word in my full time career.

I gain a great deal of satisfaction knowing that my efforts will help your student not only understand their course work, but will also enable them to feel confident in learning new subjects. Feel free to contact me with any and all questions and to schedule your sessions. I encourage you to provide feedback, both positive and negative, so that I may continue to improve my service.

Please reach out to me with any questions about me. I will respond to you within 24 hours. For cancellations, I ask that you notify me at least 8 hours before our scheduled time to reschedule. I would also recommend a quiet zone for our sessions, one that is free of distraction. This could be a room in your home or the tutoring area in the local public library or even the local coffee shop. 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.

Basketball

I have coached youth sports over the past 10 years, 3 of which include youth basketball. I have also volunteered time teaching basketball to special needs children. I have experience playing organized basketball from my early teen years through college.

I've been using Excel for approximately 20 years. I have experience in the basics (graphs/tables) to more advanced features (VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, Pivot Tables etc) and linking. I have mentored and trained new coworkers with using Excel.
