Bio

I am just finishing my PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University. I have a lot of teaching experience, from lecturing in 300 student classes to one-on-one tutoring. I've taught children with reading problems in Holt Michigan, and taught English as a second language to children in Hong Kong, where I also worked as a private tutor.

I am just finishing my PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University. I have a lot of teaching experience, from lecturing in 300 student classes to one-on-one tutoring. I've taught children with reading problems in Holt Michigan, and taught English as a second language to children in Hong Kong, where I also worked as a private tutor. I have taught archaeology and anthropology classes at Columbia University in New York City and at Community College in Baltimore. In sum, I have taught a variety of subjects to different age groups and at different educational levels.

Strong test scores contributed to my acceptance to the PhD program at Columbia, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and insights with students who have ambitious goals for their future. Personally, I am a friendly family man with a young son.

I have experience tutoring High School and College-age students. Based largely on my SAT and ACT scores, I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School, and received a scholarship to Albion College.

I am a published author, with two articles printed in scholarly journals in 2015. I am completing a PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University, an Ivy League institution. I scored in the 99th percentile for the Verbal section of the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) and received the highest possible score on the Analytic writing section. I have extensive experience working with university students.

I am located in Astoria Queens but am happy to travel to other parts of the metropolitan area. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Knowledgeable and Process-Oriented

John taught me the proper way to conduct research in a very process oriented way that made the process less stress inducing and more enjoyable. Highly recommended

Ariel, 1 lesson with John

Good first experience.

My son was happy with how things went with John preparing for a history midterm. We have scheduled another appointment. His flexibility in scheduling is great!

Flexible and knowledgeable tutor

Great first lesson that left the student optimistic about going 0-90 in four months for an AP test. Thank you.

Vara, 2 lessons with John

extremely knowledgeable and an incredible writer.

John was able to, in 60 minutes, help me form the most comprehensive outline I have ever seen. although he was unfamiliar with my topic and sources, John was able to write more on the topic than I ever could have.

Great Tutor!

John is a great tutor. He helped me with several different college classes including philosophy, political science, world history, art history, and paper editing. He is knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. I recommend him to anyone who needs help with their college courses and will be working with him again in the future.

Very knowledgeable and helpful

John is indeed the most helpful and knowledgeable writing tutor I've ever had. He helped me with revising my essay and I eventually aced it (got full points)! He gives students insightful suggestions and certainly knows what he's doing!
