I am a full time public school math teacher, but my "first love" is tutoring. I find one-on-one instruction to be the ideal situation for genuine learning to happen. When I'm tutoring, I can really get to the heart of where the real struggles are, and I can be your cheerleader, advocate, and general encourager. We also usually have a lot of fun along the way, with (often dry) wit and good humor offered at no extra charge.

I specialize primarily in math. My specialties are on the upper en...
John is very knowledgable and good at teaching different Math Methods in each scenario. He is also very good at encouraging students with lifting up their confidence as well as pointing to their weaknesses so they can work on those areas to become stronger in the future. He is using Time efficiently and teaching until last minute of each session without wasting any time. We have scheduled a few sessions with John so far and my kid has really liked it.

John helped me pass Exam FM by working through any problem I needed help on with me. He was very patient and he made sure I understood every part of the problem before moving on to the next. He was able to show me different tricks to problems quicker as well.

This was the last class for Fm exam. He explained all the materials with details and clear explanation. Yesterday I took the exam, and I passed Fm. Thank you so much, John

John truly is a math wizard...while he is extremely intelligent with his expertise in mathematics and actuary, he is able to teach math in a clear and concise manner. I am working with John to prepare for a Praxis II exam, and I would also recommend John for any math tutoring too. 10/10 recommend!!
- Peter M. from Des Moines, IA
He was wonderful at explaining and breaking down concepts. I passed my 5003 praxis, thanks to him!!! He took the time to understand where I struggle and how to best meet my needs.
- Shandol G. from Lawrenceburg, TN
John really understands the material and he is going to help me achieve my goals. He has a strong understanding of the praxis test I am taking. He can teach any level of mathematics to help any student pass their exams.
- Gary M. from Mooresville, NC
very smart and answered every one of my questions towards the material we covered, we require his assistance later and hopefully I won?t have too.
- Patrick R. from Dallas, TX
John is very flexible about explaining to the student exactly where their weaknesses are and catering the lessons to the student's needs for upcoming tests. He is obviously very knowledgeable about Algebra II and experienced in teaching and tutoring.
- Camille N. from Indianapolis, IN
He taught me Exam P, for 3 month in this summer, I passed exam p at once in this September. He was very patient and skillful. Because he was pushing me to study, I was able to keep study Exam P in this summer. -Thanks John
- Hyo Kyung K. from Chicago, IL
He really helped me understand where I was overthinking and second guessing myself. Almost immediately I was able to solve problems correctly and efficiently through the way he broke things down to me.
- Alexandra H. from Norfolk, VA
John took the time to explain problems that I struggled with in math. He is patient and able to go backwards if I did not understand the problem he was going over.
- Latasha P. from Waterbury, CT
You can tell John knows what he is talking about. He is very calm and patient in his approach. He will be sending me some great resources to prep me for the 5161 praxis exam! Thanks John!
- Kevin R. from Miami, FL
I highly recommend John for anyone needing help with math. The first thing I will say is the result of my work with John: I passed the Praxis 5161 on my first attempt! I am not a math major, haven't taken a formal math class since 2003, and can say with absolute certainty that I would not have passed without John's help. John has insane amounts of content knowledge--his years of math teaching are evident in his tutoring work, as he can explain concepts in multiple different ways to find something that "sticks." He had a variety of practice problems for us to review, and many of them were practically identical to what I saw on the test. I found myself recalling his problem-solving tips and strategies numerous times throughout test day. Beyond that, John is clearly an excellent math teacher, and as a high school teacher myself, I often said to him "I'm going to borrow that explanation to use with my students!" He instilled a lot of confidence in me leading up to test day. Thank you for all your help, John!

- Adrienne S. from Pylesville, MD
John is an excellent and patient teacher. He took the time to explain things without making me feel bad. He encouraged and listened to my thinking process, even tailoring his teaching to it. I look forward to working with him to pass the math praxis!
- Adrienne S. from Pylesville, MD
John listened to my needs and tried to accommodate them during our lesson. He is clearly very knowledgeable and explains things very well. I will work with him again.
- Michele M. from Bear, DE
John helped me with my work and very helpful with everything he did. He went to every detail that needed to be cover which is great. We went over systems of equations and matrices mostly.
