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...

Great teacher!!
John 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!

Patient & Knowledgeable
John took the time to explain problems that I struggled with in math. He is patient and able to go backwards if I did not understand the problem he was going over.

John brings great expertise and examples
You can tell John knows what he is talking about. He is very calm and patient in his approach. He will be sending me some great resources to prep me for the 5161 praxis exam! Thanks John!

Helped me pass Praxis 5161 on 1st try!
I highly recommend John for anyone needing help with math. The first thing I will say is the result of my work with John: I passed the Praxis 5161 on my first attempt! I am not a math major, haven't taken a formal math class since 2003, and can say with absolute certainty that I would not have passed without John's help. John has insane amounts of content knowledge--his years of math teaching are evident in his tutoring work, as he can explain concepts in multiple different ways to find something that "sticks." He had a variety of practice problems for us to review, and many of them were practically identical to what I saw on the test. I found myself recalling his problem-solving tips and strategies numerous times throughout test day. Beyond that, John is clearly an excellent math teacher, and as a high school teacher myself, I often said to him "I'm going to borrow that explanation to use with my students!" He instilled a lot of confidence in me leading up to test day. Thank you for all your help, John!

Very good tutor.
John helped me with my work and very helpful with everything he did. He went to every detail that needed to be cover which is great. We went over systems of equations and matrices mostly.
