About John

I graduated from Duke University with a BA in history and I am a certified teacher. I have extensive tutoring and teaching experience in multiple subjects. I organized and ran a summer tutoring program that enrolled 100 students and had 20 tutors. I also tutored in a program that specialized in helping students with ADD and ADHD. Math is my specialty but I also have experience in history, writing and standardized test prep.

I love helping students reach their potential. That is what I love about tutoring. There is nothing more satisfying that having a student have the "ah ha" moment. Every student has the ability to learn and I feel that far too often this potential is lost. I have a passion for education and believe it is up the utmost importance. I have had the privilege of working with and having many great teachers and I would like to share the experience with others. I want to give back to the community and my tutoring/teaching skills are the best way for me to do it.

I have a great deal of experience when it comes to tutoring. I have tutored students in everything from elementary arithmetic to Calculus. As a student I have taken everything up to Calculus III. I understand that not all students learn the same way and I am a firm believer in adapting to the student. If a student does not understand something it means I must approach the topic in a different manner. I firmly believe that success is possible for every student and I have the skills, patience and the attitude necessary to help students realize this success.

Teaching and tutoring is more than just teaching styles and subject matter, it is a very personal experience. I encourage you to contact me and ask me any questions you may have. I cannot wait to start working together and help you realize your potential!

Approved subjects
