About Me

I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

I have a Master's Degree (2013) in Education teaching various subjects and Masters in Biology (2013), both from Nova Southeastern University.

I teach various subjects for over 6 years using the traditional a methods.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students.

I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new information needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always encourage my students to tell me about their preferences, so I can incorporate them in their lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books & materials available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
30 minute lesson - Typically do 10 to 12 minutes of warm-up and the rest of the time is devoted to practical application of technique to your songs, as well as, performance aspects. I also offer hour lessons.

About Me

My name is John R. and I'm an experienced teacher/tutor.
In addition to my eight years working as a teacher at a private school here in NY, I have tutored many students in subjects ranging from math, science, social studies, reading, and writing, to arts (piano, guitar) and even athletics (I've played both basketball & soccer at a high level). I'm very familiar with common- core curriculum, but I also try to gear my teaching towards an individual's particular skills and education history. Also, while in graduate school I tutored several undergraduate students in philosophy and psychology. Finally, I spend a lot of time working with autistic individuals and its something that is very close to my heart. I adhere to the principles of ABA and am fully capable of working with any students in this population.
I am passionate about teaching as well as learning, and I strive to instill that same passion in my students. Every student encounters subjects in school that really challenge him or her, but when that student takes on an attitude of confidence and welcome to challenges, he or she can truly become an excellent student.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

I am hoping to become a basketball coach soon. I also enjoy playing the bass guitar as well as producing and recording music. I play two bands and have recorded on several records.
