I have BS and MS degrees in math and decades of experience applying math to real world problems. I have also been tutoring students in math for decades, and I am a substitute math and science teacher at a school in Charleston. I have learned how to deal with the diverse challenges of grade school, high school and college students. I have the experience and ability to deal with unique student needs, discovering their gaps in math and developing a specific program to overcome those gaps. Over time, the students I tutor come to not only understand but also enjoy math.
I use modern tools, including iPad apps, to assess student proficiency and identify areas of needed improvement. I also use modern, student-friendly tools to test student understanding with problems and exercises and provide needed feedback to the student on accomplishment and correction as needed.

Helpful and patient tutor

John was patient and understanding during our first session together. He did a great job with making sure that I understood the material before we moved on. He also made sure to explain things in multiple ways until it made sense to me.

So Patient!

John was so patient and kind with me. He made sure I knew what each concept was before we moved on. He talked to me instead of just spitting out math problems, which really helped me grasp the material!

Knowledgeable math teacher/tutor

We've worked with John for two 1.5 hr sessions and they were concentrated on ACT preparation. He has definitely helped and will see how the ACT goes!

We were all very impressed by John

Review past quizzes and tests; assessed his skills and strengths and went over several important Algebra concepts he needed to get. Was first introductory meeting and we were all very impressed by John.

Asela, 7 lessons with John

Great tutor

We are very happy to have found John. He's very supportive and encouraging and has a great way of helping my daughter understand the key concepts of pre-cal after she had all but given up. Her scores have improved after only three sessions and she is more motivated than ever to conquer this class. He's punctual, prepared and flexible and offers a caring approach.
