About John


Bio

I have over 20 years experience teaching algebra, geometry, algebra II/trig and pre-calculus in a classroom setting and almost 25 years’ experience tutoring those subjects which includes grade 5 through 12 NYS Common Core . As a magna cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, (3.73) my experience began with tutoring at the Higher Educational Opportunity Program. I expanded to independent tutoring and further developed as a classroom teacher whose skills I continue to hone.

I have over 20 years experience teaching algebra, geometry, algebra II/trig and pre-calculus in a classroom setting and almost 25 years’ experience tutoring those subjects which includes grade 5 through 12 NYS Common Core . As a magna cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, (3.73) my experience began with tutoring at the Higher Educational Opportunity Program. I expanded to independent tutoring and further developed as a classroom teacher whose skills I continue to hone.

If I have inspired a student, I feel gratified. If I notice that a student has an unusual passion for a topic, I create challenges designed to empower rather than to simply praise. I discourage cookie cutter style teaching methods which only “teach” to the masses yet overlook individual needs.

Parental involvement is paramount but not always possible. Many of my students have been considered at-risk and often come from single parent families. Sensitivity to this situation requires special understanding. In all scenarios cooperation among student, teacher and parent is the ideal means of insuring that optimal academic and emotional growth takes place.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Over the past 17 years I have been responsible for boosting regents scores of various exams from Sequential I, Math A, Integrated Math up to the present Common Core Algebra. Additionally I have spent 16 years teaching Algebra 1 during summer school.

I've prepared students very successfully for the geometry regents since 2000. The key is to blend algebra and geometry together so as to see how the two disciplines are just an extension of each other.

knowledgeable and and easy to follow tutor

He helped me with the polynomials multiplication(Algebra 2). At the end of the hour I was able to do the polynomials for myself. The class was fun and his explanations were clear and easy, the time went fast.

Wonderful results...!

This was Vincent’s second lesson and he’s doing phenomenal. At one point we thought he was going to fail Geometry for the year and now thanks to John he has progressed more than we ever expected. Thank you John!

Wonderful first impression...

My son Vincent has been struggling with Geomotry all year. One session with John and he already feels better. We look forward to seeing him next week and for long term review. He left Vincent with valuable tips and practice for the next tutoring session.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

John taught my son Algebra. I like how he is so patient and explain the Algebra with so easy way. My son loves his way. He used to hate the tutoring. But now he likes to stay longer with John. Thank you, John.
