About John


Bio

My experience with tutoring began in high school when I tutored my classmates in math and English. At that time, I discovered that I was able to simplify complex topics in a way that others find very helpful. Simplifying complex concepts has helped me and my clients both in software engineering and in learning the Italian language.

My experience with tutoring began in high school when I tutored my classmates in math and English. At that time, I discovered that I was able to simplify complex topics in a way that others find very helpful. Simplifying complex concepts has helped me and my clients both in software engineering and in learning the Italian language.

I am a software engineer by trade and have worked in the industry for many years. I can help you learn general programming practices or specific skills such as Java, Unix, and SQL. I can help you identify what works well and what doesn't as you create your own software engineering solutions. Using your own specific assignments or exercises I provide, we will work together to reinforce material that we've covered. I will consistently demonstrate how to apply what you learn, since applying these skills in practice is the reason to learn them in the first place.

I am also an Italian tutor. I learned the Italian language from the perspective of knowing American English first. When learning Italian as your "first" second language, I know what is helpful and more importantly what isn't. I am also familiar with helpful resources, whatever your proficiency may be. Whether you're studying Italian in school and are struggling with all the rules or you would like to learn it on your own but find it a bit overwhelming, I can help.

My approach to tutoring starts with language: I'm convinced that simple language facilitates understanding. I use everyday words in order to make complex topics easy to understand and I excel at drawing connections to topics you already know, which helps you gain expertise as well as confidence in the subject matter.

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. Schedule a lesson today!

Patient tutor with tons of skills

He was knowledgeable in his subject. My daughter got along with him, and he was very patient during their tutoring session. We would happily use him again. My daughter used him for Java tutoring.

Myra, 2 lessons with John

Expert knowledge of Java

I was on a time crunch trying to finish a college project, John met me online within 5 minutes, helped me fly through my code to find errors and explain not only how to fix them but whey they were happening(very important). He has an in-depth knowledge of Java and also told me about some keyboard shortcuts with the IDE I am using.

Austin, 1 lesson with John

Excellent instruction

I am an experienced programmer and wanted to learn about Java. John was able to quickly adapt to my style of learning. We covered a lot of material in 1 hour. I would highly recommend him.

LISA, 15 lessons with John

Excellent Experience Learning SQL

I highly recommend John for Sql tutoring. He is extremely knowledgeable, amiable and made understanding concepts I was unsure of extremely easy to grasp. He instructed, explained, corrected and praised. Now I feel accomplished and knowledgeable! Thanks!

Lindsay, 6 lessons with John

Knowledgeable, patient and engaging tutor.

John helped me to get over a couple of humps with restoring a SQL Server database and connecting to it and another SQL Server database. He guided me through numerous detailed steps that I could never have figured out. Now I ready to user the databases for practicing queries. Not only is John knowledgeable, he exhibited patience and provided that rare input - encouragement. I endorse him as a guide and tutor.

Houston, 1 lesson with John

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

John is tutoring my 10th grader for the AP Computer Science exam. My son cannot wait for the next lesson. John is a professional, punctual and gifted teacher. We highly recommend hiring him.

Anna, 14 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

I saw John for six lessons. He basically helped me relearn grammar. I was preparing for the Hesi a2 exam and realized there is a whole section of grammar on the test. Since the rules of grammar are learned in grammar school, its easy to forget them. John was very patient and understanding. He wants you to understand the matter and do well in whatever you need to know the material for. He had a whole bunch of practice exams and even made up a few of his own exams for me on the material that he noticed I needed more help in. If for any reason you need help with grammar, for instance for the hesi a2 exam... I highly recommend John.

I thought he did an excellent job

He was very patient, and very helpful. I would use him again. He helped me understand the job I needed to do to get my job done. I am on a tight schedule and he was there when I needed him which was awesome. I just want to thank him for everything.

George, 11 lessons with John

Very helpful lesson

John is very encouraging. He makes relevant analogies. He covers concepts thoroughly and makes sure you understand before moving on. I will definitely ask him to tutor me again if needed.
