Hi there, my name is John, and I am a Science, Math, and Japanese tutor living in Massachusetts.
A little bit about me: I have a bachelor's and Master's in Chemistry from Northeastern University. I have been tutoring students since 2005, but regularly since 2009.
I have tutored college students in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry and Japanese since 2009. I have worked with high school students since 2010 with many math courses and topics.
Additionally, I have successfully tutored and prepared student for the SAT, ACT, GRE and MCAT. I have a proven track history of higher scores on practice tests and topic mastery. I don't just tutor the subject, I show your student how to maximize time, spot traps and find the right answer quickly.
I look forward to work with your student/s to help them achieve any and all educational/professional goals.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Once the student can do a problem with me, I ask the student to do a similar problem without me (I just watch). If done successfully, then I can reinforce the topic with homework. If not, we can spend more time on the topic and then repeat. After some time, this process will create a familiarity with how to tackle the area of confusion.
