About John


Bio

I found my passion in medicine and clinical research. But more importantly, I have learned that teaching is one of the foundations of medicine. Whether it is a resident teaching a medical student or a fellow learning from an attending, teaching is a vital component throughout one's medical career. I graduated from the College of William & Mary with a B.S. in Chemistry. I am most comfortable teaching math, biology, chemistry, and physics.

During my day job, I am a clinical research assistant...

I found my passion in medicine and clinical research. But more importantly, I have learned that teaching is one of the foundations of medicine. Whether it is a resident teaching a medical student or a fellow learning from an attending, teaching is a vital component throughout one's medical career. I graduated from the College of William & Mary with a B.S. in Chemistry. I am most comfortable teaching math, biology, chemistry, and physics.

During my day job, I am a clinical research assistant at the Institute of Human Virology - University of Maryland School of Medicine focusing on Hepatitis B cure research and other infectious diseases. In my free time, I volunteer on the weekends at the local methadone clinic and have an absolute craze for great Italian food and cooking.

I will be matriculating into medical school in early summer of 2019.

I want to help my students to reach their best potential. Feel free to reach out to schedule your first lesson!

Great Teacher

John really helped me out with understanding topics I didn't understand. He uses screenshots and different pictures to explain concepts. Very helpful.

Knowledgeable, expert and patient tutor

John is a very dedicated and diligent tutor, providing our son a focused and well-planned study and revision regime. He is very knowledgeable and has expertise which goes beyond the science and mathematics subjects he provides to our son. He takes time to ensure our son covers all relevant syllabus areas in preparation for his exams. We strongly recommend him for tutoring to other parents.

Great tutor!

John W. was SO helpful for me on my Albert.io assignment for AP Chem. He explained everything in an understandable way and was patient when I didn’t understand concepts. I definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their score on the AP Chemistry exam.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

John went through an entire sample exam with me when it was 1 am his time. He was so helpful, and knew how to use the technology on Wyzant very well. He made the concepts a lot easier to grasp because he drew out examples for me and provided me with very helpful diagrams.

Really Helpful and Knowledgeable

I was having a lot of issues in Chem 112 and he was able to explain everything I needed him to in a very understandable way. He also went out of his way to meet me at late hours the night before my exam. I would definitely recommend John to anyone struggling in Chemistry.

Thanks. I hope you did great!

Great Tutor!

Today was my son’s first lesson with John W. John was great at explaining concepts he has been struggling with in chemistry. John patiently worked with him this afternoon and my son is feeling optimistic about his quiz tomorrow and wants to continue working with him.

Excellent Tutor

My daughter is doing very well with John as her Honors Chem tutor. He gets down to business, and she tells me he is great at helping her to understand the material.

Knowledgeable and Kind!

I worked on Acid-Base Equilibrium with John and he taught me the main concepts of the unit. I highly recommend his service since he had a full grasp of the subject and had the patience to review all questions.

Thank you, John

I felt lost with chemistry but working with John I have been able to get perfect scores on my homework and I even got a 90% on my exam!!! THANKS AGAIN, JOHN!!!

A very competent tutor

In the one hour I spent learning chemistry from John, we manage to do a run though of every part that will be covered in my exam and also complete a mock exam. We manage to get a lot of ground covered and it was a very efficient lesson. John showed he was very knowledgeable about chemistry. He knew exactly what the key points are in the text book and did not hesitate to answer any questions i had. He was also very patient when mistakes are made. Using a lot of examples, he taught me easier ways to memorize the content and how to perfectly solve problems. Throughout the entire lesson, John stayed on task and kept me from procrastinating. He was very polite and respectful, even when I made stupid comments or mistakes. He is an amazing tutor and worth the time and money spent on him.
