## Great teacher!!

Alexa, 29 lessons with JohnJohn is an excellent teacher! He is helping me with my business statistics class. John’s way of explaining things help me understand concepts that I could not understand in class. Very patient!

I am a full time public school math teacher, but my "first love" is tutoring. I find one-on-one instruction to be the ideal situation for genuine learning to happen. When I'm tutoring, I can really get to the heart of where the real struggles are, and I can be your cheerleader, advocate, and general encourager. We also usually have a lot of fun along the way, with (often dry) wit and good humor offered at no extra charge.

I specialize primarily in math. My specialties are on the upper...

Actuarial Science,
#### Actuarial Science

I passed Exam P in July 2018 with a score of 8 and Exam FM in April 2019 with a score of 7. I did this without the benefit of in-person course work while working full time and being a father of two school-aged children.

I have tutored students in statistics at the college level and helped students understand the very counterintuitive concepts that are difficult to grasp just from a textbook. I have had great success in helping students who were very shaky on the concepts to deepen their understanding and get excellent grades in the class. I have also passed actuarial exam P (probability), the which covers many of the same topics in depth without the benefit of graphing calculators or software. In order to pass it, I had to teach myself, to do the hard work of pulling these concepts from a textbook with very little guidance.

Trigonometry,

I taught trigonometry for 8 years, 3 of which I accomplished without a textbook. It was entirely driven by notes and a worksheet-generating software. My approach involved many examples, as well as deriving nearly all of the formulas and procedures (sometimes several ways). In addition, if I had to choose one favorite to teach, trigonometry would probably be it.

John has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **144 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Very helpful

John was very helpful with my specific questions regarding the FM exam. He also had the insight based on our conversation on topics that may also be troublesome to practice.

Jason, 1 lesson with John

## Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

John has been tutoring me for the past three months now, and his tutoring honestly helps me more than the actual class I am taking for FM. Completely worth the investment.

Hanna, 35 lessons with John

## Very patient and thorough tutor!

I found John on Wyzant as he was listed as a statistics tutor. As I have been struggling with statistics for quite some time, John explained everything I was confused about in an hours time! He taught me step by step how to solve problems and explained the reason for each answer. I highly recommend him especially if you are skeptical about online vs. in-person tutoring as I was at first. 10/10!

Catherine, 1 lesson with John

## Great tutor

He really helped me understand concepts. I feel prepared my next exam because of the knowledge I received from Mr.B. Highly recommend. For my homework my professor saw a difference in my work and participation during class.

Maria, 8 lessons with John

## Passed Exam FM

John taught me all of the theoretical information and concepts behind Exam FM. He knows everything about this exam. If you have any questions on financial mathematics, you should definitely ask him. 100% recommend! Now, I am starting to take Exam P and he again understands all the content.

Sam, 45 lessons with John

## Clear and Helpful

John helped to explain a wide array of questions that I had for my Praxis exam. I enjoyed how he would also point out interesting, more in-depth concepts that questions could point to, as well as providing a larger framework that I could use to solve similar problems. With his help, I passed my exam! Thanks John!

## Very Knowledgeable and patient tutor

John reviewed the Honors Algebra 2 lesson with my daughter and gave her the confidence she needed. We would absolutely reach out to John in the future for more sessions when needed.
