About John R.

My name is John R. and I'm an experienced teacher/tutor.
In addition to my eight years working as a teacher in various schools in NY and SC, I have tutored many students in subjects ranging from math, science, social studies, reading, and writing, to arts (guitar) and even athletics (I've played both basketball & soccer at a high level). I 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 it's something that is very close to my heart. I adhere to the principles of ABA and I 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.

When my son started soccer at age five, he really struggled and didn't enjoy the game the way I'd hoped. Within a few months of working with Jack (John) though, hes become one of the better players on the team and even made the local travel team. Best of all, though, he really seems to enjoy playing now and seems confident out on the field!

John truly understands the game and was able to teach all the basic skills to my son. Unfortunately, due to a recent move I was unable to continue with the lessons. I think he is a very good teacher though.

John helped my son to understand math via this new common-core curriculum, which I myself struggled to grasp. I know many parents like me were taught very differently, but John is very good at understanding both where I'm coming from and this common-core stuff. Excellent!

In just three months John was able to teach my grandson how to read music and play some of his favorite songs. He's very kind with children and an exceptional teacher!

As described in the previous section, I have been a school teacher as well as a private tutor for over eight years now, and I love my job! I have experience teaching students of all ages (young and old) in academics (English, math, science, social studies, reading, writing, Spanish, religion, philosophy, psychology, theology, etc.), arts (piano, guitar, song-writing), and athletics (soccer, basketball, tennis, baseball, etc.). Feel free to contact me via Takelessons.com as I'm more than willing to address any questions you may have for me.
