About John

Future students,

I am a math teacher and coach at Fossil Hill Middle School. I really enjoy teaching math, it has always been my favorite subject. I am an expert in Algebra and it is something that I teach in different ways everyday. I really like to have students talk about what they are learning and even write about it. I am a big believer in problem solving, so I focus on problem solving strategies constantly. One of my favorite things to do is work with students one on one. I can really cater to their needs and wants. I try to make tutoring as fun as possible, I even have games that I play with my students.

This year I have used apps in my classroom, which have been very successful. I use socrative, kahoot, edmodo, and remind in my class. I motivate the students to compete against each other and make themselves better. Also I build really good relationships with students and really make them believe in what they are learning. Sometimes the main thing you have to do is make the student believe in themselves and that is something I am really good at when teaching math. Also I have much patience and when I need to slow down to make the student truly understand, I am great with that strategy.

I have been teaching for 4 years, but have been tutoring for close to 10 years. I used to be an AVID tutor when I was 19 years old, which was when I first realized I really loved the tutoring aspect of school. That is something that prompted me to pursue teaching. I am good with all subjects in math, as it was my major in college. My expertise is definitely algebra and prealgebra, it is my true passion. I am really good at working with people and am very personable when I tutor. I feel like I am the perfect fit to tutor you.
