    John was very professional providing a quality service. I especially appreciated how personable he was and how he approached the work with a sense of humor but also using the time wisely and efficiently. I would recommend john highly. He also was very flexible with our busy schedule.

About this pro

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.

    Q & A

    • 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 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.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I've done tutoring since I was in high school, and decided it was a good idea to get back into it back in 2002, when I wanted a source of income that wasn't practicing law. Let's put it this way; no one goes to see a lawyer when he or she is HAPPY. That can get to be a really negative experience.
