About John


Bio

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.

AP calculus

John was awesome. He helped my son understand key concepts and made him feel more comfortable going into a test. Calm, patient demeanor made all the difference. Highly recommend !

Very Good Tutor

John is a great tutor, he's very patient and for someone like me who hasn't had to take a math class in over 25 years that is saying a lot. This Financial Management class is a requirement for my Master's degree and although it was difficult and a bit intimidating, John worked with me and took it very slow, step by step to ensure I understood the material. The end result was an A on the Mid-term exam. I'm confident that my over all grade for the class will be an A as well. None of this would have been possible without his tutoring. I was somewhat skeptical in the beginning, but I'm very please with my decision to go with John as tutor.
