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 help this year with my 17 year old son as well as with my daughter 2 years ago when she was applying to colleges in regards to their essays. My daughter unexpectedly got into UC BERKELEY and I honestly believe it's because of John's timely assistance as well as his calm explanation of what colleges are looking for. I would highly recommend him especially because this is a major part of our children's lives to prioritize and we all were so happy either his work
