John is brilliant, professional, thorough, patient, task oriented, and student centered. He's an incredibly competent tutor, relates well to young people, and knows how to help each student learn the requisite material. If you are looking for a tutor in the NYC area, you simply can't do better.
My daughter is home-schooled and Mr. Herbert has provided us with invaluable information, not only about various ways to approach geometry, but also information about math in general and related home-schooling reference material. He has experience in many different areas of education and is very interested in helping young people learn in ways that are most effective for them, not necessarily the standard school methods. We truly appreciate his help, interest and enthusiasm!
He is quite personable and is willing to help, even under adverse circumstances (the computer's server at the library was not working) - this hindered his tutoring her a little. Next time, she will know to bring her own lap top. David was able to pin point accurately some of the student's issues and problem areas. I am confident the student will gain much from David.

David works to motivate the student who is difficult to motivate at times.
