About John

I have a degree in Marketing from The Ohio State University. I first learned to program R in 2011 and I have used it almost every day since then. It is such a powerful tool and it's free. The R community is very active and you can find a package for just about every use. I've been tutoring R online since 2014 and I greatly enjoy helping folks understand and learn R. I use R for my full time job as a data scientist, and I also use R for fun. Even if you are just beginning and have never programmed before, I would love to help you learn!

I have been using Microsoft Office products such as Access and Excel since 1995. I also know how to program using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). I used these skills during the time when I owned a business helping to automate manual processes for companies.

I specialize in helping folks that are starting from a limited knowledge set to learn a new subject area. I can be very patient and walk you through things at a comfortable pace. I think you'll discover that I'm really easy to get along with and I always have your learning in mind during our sessions. I also want to keep you challenged, so I will be giving you short quizzes and some homework for multiple sessions.

I am typically available anytime after 9pm EST.

Feel free to contact me and we can discuss a plan that works best for you. Let's set up a session and we can learn together!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary Math

I love math! Math has always been my favorite subject because despite multiple ways to go about finding an answer, there is usually just one answer to the problem.

Enhancing your math skills can be extremely helpful in life. When I'm eating out, I can quickly determine a 20% tip. If I'm shopping, I can estimate how much I will need to pay for the items in my cart plus tax. For business, it is extremely helpful to be good at math so I can quickly estimate big numbers in my head as we walk through different scenarios.

I was in advanced math classes in high school and took calculus and statistics in college. Now that I am older and have kids, I love teaching them math too.

My 7 year old son likes to do "bath math" where I quiz him on double digit multiplication while he takes his bath. Last year as a 1st grader, the school decided to move him into 2nd grade math.

My teaching style is to make sure I am going at a comfortable pace and not too quickly. I want my students to really understand what they are learning.
I'd love to help you understand any Elementary math problems you may have!

Microsoft Access

I first started using Access back in 1995 where I built out tables to store which episodes of the Simpsons I have on VHS! A few years later I taught myself Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) so I could use Access to push data to Excel and automate reports. Over the years I have converted most of my data manipulation over to using the tool R, but I still enjoy building a good Access database with reports.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel for over 20 years. I can help write complex functions and other fun things!

R

I have been programming in R almost every day since 2011. I use it for my full-time job as a data scientist and also as a hobby. I have been tutoring folks online with R for 2 years. I have 3 Coursera R course certifications.

I greatly enjoy using R and I love to promote it to others. Tutoring is a great way to help folks learn the tool for the first time, or enhance some of their current skill sets.

SQL

I have been using SQL for 10 years. I work for a large company that has multiple databases with tables of Millions of rows.
