John is a Mathematics, Physics, SAT, ACT Specialist with a B.A. in English from Dartmouth College. John has helped hundreds of students dramatically increase their scores in their courses, as well as on the ACT and SAT in his years of work as a private tutor. He loves to find ways to have his students learn their content as efficiently as possible, such as creating overnight study guides for students and teaching himself how to write upside down in order to teach better during sessions. He has also taught as a Mathematics and Physics instructor at the School for Young Performers based in Manhattan. He has 6+ years of experience providing private tutoring to students in preparation for mathematics (pre-algebra through calculus), physics, English, ESL, and test prep (ACT, SAT, ISEE, TACHS). He has tutored home-schooled students, private school students and public school students in New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, and Westchester County. John has also taught courses at several summer programs over the past few years, including with the non-profit education organization NJ SEEDS during its summer sessions at Hobart & William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY, as well as at the Summer Institute for the Gifted at their programs based on the Princeton University and Yale University campuses. Last year, he worked with Education Unlimited at their main program based in UC Berkeley. He is currently enrolled at Columbia University's School of Professional Studies, completing coursework in Mathematics and Physics. He graduated Cum Laude from Avon Old Farms School in Avon, CT for high school. John also enjoys to rock climb, play soccer, and hike during his free time when he is not tutoring.

ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

For approximately 2 years, I tutored as a volunteer for grades 1-5 in math, science and English in a Hartford, Connecticut public elementary school. It included ESL work with many non-native English speaking students, mostly Spanish speakers, who were enrolled in class and had difficulty. For 6 months, I tutored three students with ESL work (two Spanish speakers, one Mandarin Chinese speaker) at a New Hampshire high school. I had received a job offer last summer to work as an ESL teacher at a public school in Seoul, South Korea through a private teaching English abroad company called Ivy in Asia. However, I turned down the offer due to personal/family reasons. I currently participate in language exchange sessions at local public libraries in the North NJ area. I currently work with a Chinese Mandarin student in mainly pronunciation, and will soon be helping a Korean-speaking student with grammar and pronunciation.

During high school for approximately 2 years, I had been tutoring as a volunteer for grades 1-5 in math, science and English in a Hartford, Connecticut public elementary school. After graduation, I had been working as a private tutor for elementary (K-6th) students in the Northern NJ area. I currently tutor one student in elementary school for general reading, math and science. Previously, I have tutored 3 elementary school students in everything from general science to reading comprehension to Spanish review. I also currently volunteer with a non-profit organization called Paterson Education Fund, which helps support elementary as well as high school students in the city of Paterson, N.J.. I am also studying to prepare for my teacher's certification program next year.
Homeschool,

Homeschool

I have tutored several homeschooled students over my past 4+ years of tutoring. These have included students enrolled in traditional homeschool programs, high school athletes requiring homeschool programs to accommodate their hectic traveling schedule (mainly for travelling hockey teams), as well as students whom required temporary homeschool work while recovering from surgery, etc. I have tutored middle and high school homeschool students primarily, with a focus on STEM subjects including math, biology, chemistry, and physics, as well as writing English papers.

Study Skills

During the past few years, I have been helping students find different sets of study skills to help them complete homework assignments and study for tests in all their subjects. I have done this working as a private tutor for students who sometimes needed help with three to five subjects in an hour. I taught them memorization skills, mnemonics and other techniques, as well as providing them online resources and books which would help them continue their progress. In addition, I currently work with a non-profit education organization helping low-income high school students with their homework and SAT review. I have been primarily focusing on general study skills and resources for many of these students, whether they are having any constraints due to time, budget, study area or otherwise.

Patient and accommodating

John is very patient with my son and accommodates his schedule when possible. Has helped my son improve his grades in a tough math class.

Good Precalculus lesson with John

My son was so happy with his lesson with John! He said he could finally understand what he was doing with Precalculus because John was able to break it down to a form that he could understand.

Excellent Math Tutor

John is a fantastic Geometry tutor. He is prompt, professional and goes above and beyond to help my daughter understand difficult concepts. I highly recommend John for his intelligence, kindness and professionalism.

Superior, knowledgeable tutor!

John is the best tutor who stands up to his credentials. He easily established rapport with my son and was very flexible with scheduling. On his 3rd SAT attempt, after being tutored by John in Math, my son raised his scores by 25% in that subject area and we know John made that variable difference. John is a compassionate individual who is willing to listen to your needs. He is passionate about his work and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment in highly recommending John as a tutor who gets the job done!

Best tutor in the world

I can't say enough about John. He's just remarkable. He's pulled our son's grades up, our son really likes him (very important) and he even gave me a session so i could understand what my son is doing enough to help him, too.
