Algebra 1

After 27 years in Fiber Optics Research, I changed my career to high school teaching in Math and Science. One of the most enjoyable and rewarding classes has been Algebra 1 where I love working with students to build confidence and take away the fear of math. Having been in industry, I always find it important to relate the math principles to real world situations to assist students in seeing practical applications.

Solid teacher!

John is easy for my high school son to understand and he has so much knowledge on the subject of physics. He is a great teacher. We will continue to work with him through the entire school year.

Kitsie, 6 lessons with John

Great physics tutor!

I highly recommend John, he was great at helping me with physics. He was extremely knowledgeable about the material and explained everything very clearly. I will definitely be using him again in the future!

Ideal Teacher for AP Physics C

Mr. John has an exceptional ability to instruct by directing your focus to what is important and he offers a wealth of resources with clear explanations. He is an inspirational teacher/engineer who can guide you to a 5 on the AP exam by providing you with an in depth understanding and appreciation of physics.

I’d be lost in Physics if it wasn’t for John!

I plan on continuing to work with John, as I did over the summer, I have another Physics class this semester online and I know I’ll do well with his help!

Experienced, Patient, and Prepared

John worked with me this summer to prepare for my Physics II college course I will be taking this fall semester. John used to teach physics, so he has all kinds of material to use for lessons and outside practice. I was just trying to get ahead over the summer and didn't have my own course materials, so John prepared his own lessons. He additionally gave me extra problem worksheets to do on my own whenever I asked. John is very dependable and punctual, as well as flexible and patient. I highly recommend him and plan on continuing to meet with him this coming semester.

I’d be lost in Physics if it wasn’t for John!

John has been VERY helpful with my summer Physics course, which is difficult to do online!he explains concepts in such a way that I pick it up really fast, and has helped me bring my grade up considerably! I plan on continuing to work with John, as I have another Physics class in the fall, and I know I’ll ace the class because of John!

Amazing

Made problems easy to understand and less daunting. I am so happy I was able to work with him and prepare myself for my midterm coming up. He was very easy going, kind, professional, and thorough. I’m excited for my next class because I feel well versed in the subject material now.
