About John

I have tutored a few hundred people over the past 10 years or so. I like to help those who have difficulty grasping the contents but want to learn and understand, whether for grade performance or self-fulfillment. I am very patient and will explain every step of a solution in plain English, with illustrated, creative examples and applications of the problem at hand in real life. I learned a lot of Math in college and Grad school but I mastered it mostly at home, by thinking by myself and struggling to understand the underlying ideas. That made me good at knowing exactly what struggling students are thinking and where their faulty logic is. Moreover, I found how to shed that beam of light that makes it all clear. I can help you with STATISTICS in any level from undergrad to Ph.D., with Calculus 1, and with Algebra 1 and 2.

I have been teaching Statistics, Calculus, and Algebra in several of the Major Universities in my areas for the past 16 years. My degrees are in STATISTICS.

If you need someone who will listen and quickly determine what type of help you need, someone who has helped students who need support and patient explanations, contact me. You will not regret the patient, soothing support I will give you.
