About John

I'm a Christian, a husband, and a father. I've been employed as a scientist and a software developer for the past 11 years. I have a PhD in physics and love explaining the principles of mathematics, physics, and computer programming.

I'm also a musician. I've played piano and trumpet consistently for over 30 years. I play and sing regularly in church, and I'm in an 11-piece Motown-style band that plays in the Fredericksburg area.

I'm patient and encouraging with students who want to learn.

Thanks for your interest!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Discrete Math

I had a math minor in college. I've tutored a number of people in mathematics and the sciences. I'm active on question-and-answer sites.

I have a PhD in physics and love explaining the principles of mathematics, physics, and computer programming.

Thanks for your consideration.

I was in a huge bind with a big statistics project. I contacted John and within a few days we met and he had prepped on the assignment and did an excellent job explaining it. I cannot express my gratitude for his help. Completely worth every penny. This guy was born to teach. Some tutors are great at the subjects, but cannot convey the information to others. John has mastered the ability to convey
