About John


Bio

I am a life-long learner with a passion to help others learn, too. With many years of professional experience as a software engineer, I can help both new and experienced students build new technology skills such as Java, SQL, Linux, and JavaScript. I also specialize in tutoring high school students in AP Computer Science A.

I first began tutoring in high school, when I helped students with PC programming. During my career as a software engineer, I learned many programming languages,...

I am a life-long learner with a passion to help others learn, too. With many years of professional experience as a software engineer, I can help both new and experienced students build new technology skills such as Java, SQL, Linux, and JavaScript. I also specialize in tutoring high school students in AP Computer Science A.

I first began tutoring in high school, when I helped students with PC programming. During my career as a software engineer, I learned many programming languages, databases, and web technologies like Spring, NodeJS, and Angular, tutoring others along the way.

You will find that my lessons are organized, fun, and focused on your specific goals. With over 1,500 hours tutoring on Wyzant's platform, I know that students learn in different ways, and I adapt my teaching style to suit the unique needs of my students. As our lessons prepare you for assignments and exams, or to pursue your career goals, you will quickly see your confidence grow too.

Breaking down complex concepts so that they are easier to understand is what I do best - it's how I learn, too! If you or a student you know is struggling with complex topics, I'm here to help. You'll find that I'm easy to contact (and get a response!), easy to talk to, and most importantly, easy to learn from.

(I also tutor in English Grammar and Italian - ask me about discounted rates for these subjects!)

Computer Programming

With over 20 years experience with web-based applications, I tutor students who need help with the tools and techniques necessary to design and build software. My experience as a software engineer and tutor includes relational databases, web protocols and server-side middleware using Java, Tomcat, NodeJS, and ExpressJS, as well as client-side technologies like AngularJS and Javascript. I am also very experienced with Linux and Unix operating systems, relational data modeling, and application design with UML. I have a BBA in Management Information Systems from Pace University.

Computer Science

I am a professional software engineer and I specialize in tutoring high school students in AP Computer Science with Java. With a deep understanding of the AP Computer Science with Java curriculum, I help students understand program analysis, boolean expressions, and code tracing. I teach the standard and advanced data structures, data types, arrays, and collections, as well as algorithms like traversals, insertions, and deletions of arrays and the search algorithms. If you're a high school student who needs help getting started with computer programming or are struggling with advanced topics like sort algorithms or recursion, I can help.

Grammar,

Grammar

Having tutored high school, college and adult education students in English grammar for many years, I am always happy to show others how easy grammar can be. During a lesson, we can cover the basics like parts of speech and sentence structure, learn about important topics like punctuation (What's the difference between a colon and semi-colon?) and when to use "who" or "whom", or dive into advanced topics like misplaced modifiers (How to avoid dangling participles?) and identifying independent and dependent clauses. Whether you are a student who needs to improve your writing skills or prepare for a standardized test in English grammar, I can help.
Italian,

Italian

I have studied the Italian language for over 15 years, benefiting from college-level coursework, individual one-on-one instruction, language immersion in Italy, and from native speakers who are my closest friends and family. As you can see from my profile, I know how to approach learning Italian from the perspective of an English speaker and I have helped many high school, college, and adult education students improve their skills as well as their grades.

Java JSP and JavaNean

John was great and got me where I needed to get to. I highly recommend him to anyone else needing help with Java or Java web apps. Also he fully explains things in manner that is easy to understand and shows different tricks and methods they don't show in school.

Wesley, 1 lesson with John

Linux

John is deeply knowledgeable in Linux. He explains the commands and how to use them and why they should be used in great detail. I truly appreciate that about him. I enjoyed working with him. Looking forward to learning more from him. A very patience teacher!! Great Job!!

Renee, 7 lessons with John

Knowledgeable JAVA tutor

John did great job of helping to walkthrough and help me analyze my class code including logic/syntax. Great learning and perspective. Honest and effective feedback and can zero in on areas needing explanation.

Jim, 1 lesson with John

Kind and Incredibly Helpful!

John helped me through several SQL questions, and made sure that I understood the reasoning behind every function that we ran together. He patiently encouraged me and I left the session with a much better handle of SQL and a greater confidence in my ability to leverage the tool. I highly recommend receiving a lesson from him!

Carly, 2 lessons with John

Great Session

John was able to break SQL down into simple language for me...which I've struggled with. There was a great back and forth of answers and he was extremely patient. For the first time, I feel empowered to succeed.

Sheri, 2 lessons with John

He is an excellent tutor

Knowledgeable and able to teach the material in an efficient and clear manner. He helped me with the Java material for my online course. I highly recommend John.

Gloria , 18 lessons with John

John is a very knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

He helped my daughter with her assignments in AP Computer Science specifically programming in Java. She was very stressed out about this class, but he has put her mind at ease and helped her immensely. He has tutored her twice and I will continue to use him throughout the rest of the semester. I honestly can't wait for this class to be over and I am not the one taking the class. Highly recommend!!!

Successful Apache/Tomcat Tutor

John successfully taught the installation of Apache/Tomcat on a new server. He configured the system to run previous Java Script code imported from another server along with other functionality.

Gordon, 2 lessons with John

Amazing! Highly Recommend.

Calmed my nerves for my upcoming tests and case studies. He was an amazing tutor. I am definitely booking my next session with him. He was patient and was not taken aback by all my questions.
