My experience with tutoring began in high school when I tutored my classmates in math and English. At that time, I discovered that I was able to simplify complex topics in a way that others find very helpful. Simplifying complex concepts has helped me and my clients both in software engineering and in learning the Italian language.

I am a software engineer by trade and have worked in the industry for many years. I can help you learn general programming practices or specific skills such as ...
I had a good session today with John and would recommend him to friends and family. Today we worked on a project for a bootcamp program I am in. I had a problem connecting to the app for the session through my browser but John hung in there until I could correct the issue. Thanks again, buddy.

This was my first experience having a tutor on Wyzant and it was an awesome experience! John is super patient and clear, and explains concepts in a way that makes them easy to grasp!
- Greta S. from Bronx, NY
Excellent teacher - very experienced and knowledgeable as well as a great communicator. John helped me through some beginning steps of mySQL, including configuration and access to mySQL in Mac OS (i.e., using UNIX in the Mac OS terminal).
- Hugh K. from Alpharetta, GA
John was very easy to understand and brought it down to my level. He made the information common sense and approached one topic at a time. He was very effective, I highly recommend him.

Wow, John saved me hours of struggling on my own to figure out SQL. He used my course material to break down complex issues and help me grasp the underlying logic then how to translate that into proper syntax. I highly recommend John for anyone learning SQL.
- Sam G. from New York, NY
John is extremely intelligent. He is amazing at explaining and helping. Hire him for anything that you need, seriously. He is able to go above and beyond for what you need!

John has been incredibly helpful in getting me to understand complex ideas in java. He is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. John is also very encouraging and highlights my improvements which has given me more confidence. He makes sure I understand everything we are discussing. I have had several sessions with him and will continue to have him as my tutor for java.

Amazing! I love this guy fun to work with, honest, respectful, and most of all reliable, always on time. Thank you, John C.

John went over my SQL questions, reviewed my code, and provided feedback on the queries for every question. He also taught me how to use common table expressions and correlated sub query. He is very knowledgeable about the subject and the syntax across different applications (mySQL, PostgreSQL, msSQL). I'd recommend John for any serious students who would like to improve their SQL skills.
- Angela L. from San Carlos, CA
John is very knowledgeable, pleasant to talk to, and he was also very honest about it when the conversation veered into sections of AngularJS that are less familiar to him.
- Tanya L. from Dublin, OH
John tutored me in Java and helped me significantly. He really wants his students to do well, and spends as much time as needed in order to fully understand concepts. He also makes an effort to make his students feel proud when they accomplish something on their own. Without John, there was no chance I was passing my computer science class!
- Amanda Q. from Colonia, NJ
This lesson was on Java binary trees and John was able to help me understand this complex concept and apply it to my work.
- Mike C. from Buffalo, NY
He was knowledgeable in his subject. My daughter got along with him, and he was very patient during their tutoring session. We would happily use him again. My daughter used him for Java tutoring.
- Myra T. from Fanwood, NJ
I was on a time crunch trying to finish a college project, John met me online within 5 minutes, helped me fly through my code to find errors and explain not only how to fix them but whey they were happening(very important). He has an in-depth knowledge of Java and also told me about some keyboard shortcuts with the IDE I am using.
- Austin W. from Austin, TX
I am an experienced programmer and wanted to learn about Java. John was able to quickly adapt to my style of learning. We covered a lot of material in 1 hour. I would highly recommend him.
- LISA F. from Short Hills, NJ
I highly recommend John for Sql tutoring. He is extremely knowledgeable, amiable and made understanding concepts I was unsure of extremely easy to grasp. He instructed, explained, corrected and praised. Now I feel accomplished and knowledgeable! Thanks!
- Lindsay H. from Lake Stevens, WA
John helped me to get over a couple of humps with restoring a SQL Server database and connecting to it and another SQL Server database. He guided me through numerous detailed steps that I could never have figured out. Now I ready to user the databases for practicing queries. Not only is John knowledgeable, he exhibited patience and provided that rare input - encouragement. I endorse him as a guide and tutor.
- Houston V. from Charlotte, NC
John is tutoring my 10th grader for the AP Computer Science exam. My son cannot wait for the next lesson. John is a professional, punctual and gifted teacher. We highly recommend hiring him.
- Anna M. from Irvine, CA
I saw John for six lessons. He basically helped me relearn grammar. I was preparing for the Hesi a2 exam and realized there is a whole section of grammar on the test. Since the rules of grammar are learned in grammar school, its easy to forget them. John was very patient and understanding. He wants you to understand the matter and do well in whatever you need to know the material for. He had a whole bunch of practice exams and even made up a few of his own exams for me on the material that he noticed I needed more help in. If for any reason you need help with grammar, for instance for the hesi a2 exam... I highly recommend John.
