As a tutor my goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of the students with whom I work. No magic wand will put the power of learning solely in my hands, but students that come to me prepared to work will find me a valuable resource and an enthusiastic ally.
I have been working in the Austin area over 20 years, and with Wyzant since 2008. I have a BS in math from UT-Austin, including 50+ combined credit hours in physics, chemistry, and statistics. I've worked in the UT math department,...

Very knowledgeable and patient!
Both of my kids have been tutored by John for Alg 2 and look forward to their sessions. He provides positive feedback and gentle reminders. They aren't afraid to ask questions or try to solve a problem even if they aren't sure of themselves. Great teacher!

A Great, Well-Prepared Tutor
John taught me a lot. I liked the fact that I could ask him any question, and he always provided an answer that was satisfactory. What's more, he could answer each question to such a deep extent. He saw connections between concepts in Calculus that I never would've even thought of. And even though there may be a lot to explain, he definitely does a very good job with it! I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.

Great teaching!
He was prepared and taught me a lot. Look forward to more lessons to get me through physics. He was willing to stop the lesson and teach when I needed more help with the subject

Excellent Algebra tutor for teens
John did an intro session with our teen son via zoom and he was extremely patient. Working with teen boys is a complete skill-set of it's own. Our son really liked John is very open to weekly sessions with him now - he sees the value in the additional help and support. Thank you, John!

confidence boost!!! very patient, helped through probelms
I wasn’t confident at all in probability distributions and density functions, but john was able to help me. He made sure that we didn’t proceed with a problem till i full understood what was happening. He was very patient and most importantly open to the questions I had. As a student, some feel intimidated to ask questions we think the question might come as dumb, but John created an open and safe space to ask questions. Will definitely be coming back to john with any concepts or questions I need help in within stats!

Great tutor with a deep understanding of discrete math
John was thoughtful and thorough. He reviewed the material beforehand so he knew how to explain it in depth. Will use him again. Easy to schedule with and responsive.

Gets through a lot in one session
John gave a really thorough breakdown of some probability problems and got through a lot in one lesson. John also explained the theory and application of formulas throughout so that I came out better informed about how everything works together.
