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.
Super Knowledgeable, Organized
My son has a packed schedule, with a full load during the day and an extra class online--history. We used him after the first month of school when it was clear he was falling behind and that the material was very challenging. John answered our request for help with prompt understanding of what was needed to catch up, all the while making it meaningful and relative to today's current events. John has gone beyond our expectations by bringing books of his own as resources if the curriculum is lacking adequate explanation. He packs a lot into a lesson, still keeping the content manageable. He is such a wealth of knowledge that as a parent, I'm drawn to his lessons and explanations and finding myself saying, "I never knew that." Organized and punctual are easy descriptors for him. We couldn't have asked for a better history tutor.Lisa, 60 lessons with John
Thank you John
He ran a session with my son and John was very helpful from the very start and explained very clearly and accurately what we needed to know and work on. Lots of work for one lesson, thank you, hope to continue to work with you NellyaNellya, 5 lessons with John

Very helpful tutor
Reading a complicated book in Philosophy and John helps break things down for me to understand it better and be able to answer the questions and when I can’t understand it he is super patient with me and will continue to explain it in ways that I am able to understand it better.Patricia, 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.Kayleh, 23 lessons with John
