## Very easy to understand

Mike, 1 lesson with JohnJohn was very knowledgeable in all the math problems I brought to him. He was courteous and very easy to understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help with their math.

I majored in engineering and minored in math. My career was in telecom/computers with extensive mathematical analytics. I tutor almost any college and high school math course. I get a thrill in watching the light turn on students' heads when they see how easy math can be once it's explained properly to them. I hear "My child has this or that learning problem..." but I've not met one yet that can't improve. I instill a lot of CONFIDENCE IN MATH in them.

I've always tutored my 2 daughters...

GMAT,
#### GMAT

Having tutored GMAT quantitative mathematics quite a bit, explaining how to solve these word problems and the logic behind some of them is the key to passing this section of GMAT. Many students have problems with word problems, especially the type found in GMAT, and if English is their 2nd language, this becomes an even greater challenge. My ability to explain things simply and in a mathematical setting, is my expertise.

I have used Outlook for over 12 years. It is very sophisticated, complex and difficult to understand, but provides one the protection of emails at their own site, rather than in the could with a web based email.

I tutor Calculus as well but am not familiar with what I saw on acoustics. I understand the concepts but are you taking a course in Algebra 2 on acoustics? If so maybe you don't have to learn Calculus just how to find the answers.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I have a Master's in electrical engineering and 27 hours of math included in that. I've tutored Calculus in almost every high school and college in the north Dallas/Plano area.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I've taught and tutored Geometry in virtually every high school in the Plano and surrounding areas. While Geometry is at least 50-70% algebra review in solving problems, proofs, logic and the intricacies of the theorems leave many students behind. My way of explaining is very simple and easy to understand.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

Algebra is the fundamental process for all future mathematics. Algebraic techniques just increase in complexity yet with simplicity if the basics are understood. I have a great way of showing and teaching these basics for all math courses, especially at this stage of learning. A student's vocabulary of mathematics is quite large even at this early stage, so simple explanations and solutions are required - and that's where I excel...

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

PreCalculus has several different sections but is not necessarily progressive from one section to the next. Honors or PreAP PreCalc is challenging especially if the teachers take the "tricky" route with some of the subjects. I have a great methodology of explaining and making these areas simple, which also applies to the basic PreCalc classes.

I've taught SAT in high school and every summer for several years at SMU Plano.

Trig is learned a little in Algebra, Geometry and PreCalculus, depending upon the school district. Trig is very simple and easy to understand if stated properly with easy to remember guidelines. My method of tutoring this subject is very simple and easy to remember for the students.

I've tutored TAKS for several years. It requires algebra and geometry techniques in a straight forward manner, and is not as tricky as the ACT or SAT tests.

I took this same test a few years ago going for my teaching certificate. I aced it. I've tutored several people in it recently who are going into Nursing, Teaching, etc. Math is basically the same until you get into PreCalc, Calculus and Linear Algebra. I can tell what needs to be worked on quickly, and then normally bring sample tests, etc. to work on as your memory returns and Algebra/Geometry become easier.

## Very knowledgeable and knows how to communicate to get the students interest

John helped my son in learning the fundamentals of pre- calculus. John goes above and beyond to get the student involved and want to learn! He even brought materials to help him. My son enjoys his sessions with John.

Sally, 5 lessons with John

## Great Tutor

John was sociable and easy to talk to regarding my struggles with math. Worked with me on Algebra 2 concepts and showed me a few websites that I can use to practice at home. Very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining the concepts that were challenging. Highly recommend!

Blake, 1 lesson with John

## Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Algebra 2 tutor being very supportive to my daughter. John is flexible with scheduling these tutoring sessions. John has tutored my sons as well with Algebra 2.

Shannon, 31 lessons with John

## Wonderful Tutor

John worked very well with my son. I could tell that my son felt good about what they went over. Very nice, knowledgeable, and works well with teenagers.

Carole, 17 lessons with John

## Patient and engaging

John knew exactly how to determine where my son needed help. We are looking forward to more sessions to increase my sons readiness for the ASVAB test. Thanks John for a great start!

Michelle, 3 lessons with John

## Great tutor, patient, personable and responsive!

John is a very responsive, prompt, patient and knowledgeable tutor. My son is studying for the ASVAB and he is working with him on different subjects. He is giving my son compliments and helping him gain confidence. I would strongly recommend John for tutoring!

Kimberly, 2 lessons with John

## Patient and knowledgeable

He let's me make the session what I want it to be and does not try to take control. Very easy to work with and knows what he is doing.

Sheree, 4 lessons with John

## Knowledgeable and patient

John was very patient and he has strong math skills. My only concern was that I didn't fully understand a lot of what he was trying to teach me. That was probably because of how remedial my math is to date.

## Great Math Tutor, Very Accommodating / Great Guy All Around

John M. was awesome to work with. We worked over a long period of time with John on a regular basis like every week to tutor in Algebra 2. Maybe it was a semester or a year? He is a very good tutor and worked with with my 20 year old son somewhat difficult, unorganized and erratic. These extra challenges were no problem for John. John was consistently supportive and helpful, and worked to accommodate schedule changes, as needed. He is a kind and caring person. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
