Introduction: I offer great tutoring at a reasonable price. I have experience with the SAT, SSAT, ISEE, LSAT, and other tests, and not only understand how to take the tests, but how to teach the material to students in a way they can understand. I can answer questions that relate to test prep and academic subjects that only a person with "real world" experience can give - such as "Why do I need to know this stuff, anyway?" Finally, I have a sense of humor, and can engage and entertain while teaching, without being a complete goofball or pushover who doesn't get the job done. This may sound clichéd and cheesy, but it's true. I enjoy reaching young minds and helping people of all ages learn and get ahead in life. It's nice to help someone learn a needed skill at a crucial time in life - what a person learns while young can open doors to a new world of opportunities, and provide needed skilled people to the world.

John was very easy to work with and my daughter's scores improved a lot with just a few sessions. John is bright, on-time, easy to communicate with and fun.

John was very polite and broke things down so that I could understand them. He showed me multiple ways to solve a problem, so that if i get stumped I have another way of trying to solve the problem. He went at my pace and verified I understood before we moved on. I would reccomend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It's not complex. I charge an hourly rate. It's a little more if you live far from me, since I'll have to cover my cost of transportation from my place to your place, or wherever we're meeting. Basically, I just want to give you good work at a good rate.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, we discuss the goal of the tutoring (e.g., getting a certain score on the SAT, admission to a certain college, obtaining an athletic scholarship). I review the student's previous test scores, homework, papers, whatever is relevant. Then we do a diagnostic test pertinent to the subject and/or review a test the student has done in advance. Then we set up a study plan with goals and steps to reach those goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I always buy the most recent test prep books and read the news regarding tests.
