I worked for many years at Texas Instruments developing processes for making computer chips. When I left there I took up math and physics tutoring.

I have a BS and MS in physics from the University of Texas at Dallas. In pursuing those degrees I took many math courses including advanced calculus, linear algebra and abstract algebra. I worked for many years at Texas Instruments developing processes for making computer chips. When I left there I took up math and physics tutoring. I love working one on one with students, helping them achieve their goals. I have had many rewarding experiences with students who didn't believe in their abilities at first but went on to become straight A math students.
I've been tutoring for over 10 years including 8 years in the Dallas County Community College system where I tutored all levels of math from developmental up to calculus, differential equations and linear algebra. While working at Brookhaven College I received extensive training in tutoring methods and I subsequently taught math tutoring to other tutors. We emphasized a form of the Socratic method where we don't lecture students but rather draw out the knowledge and abilities that they don't know they have.
I am very friendly and helpful and can relate to students at any level of math understanding. I have enjoyed working with students ranging from teenagers to senior citizens. I work hard to understand my clients needs - how they learn, what their problems are and what works for them. I will be your advocate and work with you to achieve your goals. I have helped many student go from F to A and to succeed in math for the first time in their lives.
I have experience tutoring all levels of math including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Business Math and Logic. I have also specialized in helping student who are working to be math teachers with difficult subjects such as complex variable and abstract algebra.
I can help you succeed in math if you're struggling or if you're just need a little boost to get that A. I have a very interactive tutoring style that will bring out abilities that you didn'

John is great!

I’ve been working on abstract algebra with John for the semester and he has been a great resource for me. He always goes the extra mile and reviews material beforehand so that our sessions are always smooth sailing. He is great at explaining complex topics and we have worked through countless proofs together. Always a pleasure working with John!

Gigi, 31 lessons with John

great and clear instruction

Calc 1 tutoring with clear instruction and patient encouragement to help learn what you need (and actually understand it). Highly encourage you to book with him moving forward

Andrew, 4 lessons with John

Great tutor

John helps you step by step and will work at your own pace. I had technical difficulties but he helped me through them. Overall great tutor and he knows his material.

Michael, 2 lessons with John

Knowledgeable linear Algebra Tutor

John was very knowledgeable and patient. He helped explain the lesson in an easy to understand way. He showed me an easy way to tackle my linear algebra problems. I will definitely schedule additional lessons.

Debbie, 8 lessons with John

Great teaching skills!

I enjoy John’s way of explaining things. He’s very easy to communicate with and really cares to see you improve. I feel more confident to complete problems on my own. I will be a returning student of his!

Amanda, 4 lessons with John

Very intelligent and teaches well

He teaches in a simple way that helps students understand. He was very nice and was giving very useful tips. Every minute was very worthwhile and good. I would recommend him to all students who are struggling. I will definitely be contacting him if i need some more tutoring.

Frank , 5 lessons with John

Very knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to learn from.

I have had 10 previous lessons with John and all of them have been great. John is very knowledgeable on all the topics I give to him, and his previous experience tutoring and teaching really shows. He is always in a good mood and excited to teach, which makes the hour go by quick. Working with John has increased my confidence in math, reinforced what I have learned in previous math classes, and his lessons have helped me on test questions I would have otherwise missed. John's lessons have been extremely beneficial in helping me understand the little things I typically miss on tests, and his methods of teaching help me understand materials the first time and I rarely have to ask additional questions. Doing online classes this school year has hurt my ability to learn and for a very fair price John has taught me more than my teachers did.
