I hold a PhD in Anthropology from Columbia University. I have a lot of teaching experience, from lecturing in 300 student classes to one-on-one tutoring. I've taught children with reading problems in Holt Michigan, and taught English as a second language to children in Hong Kong, where I also worked as a private tutor. I have taught archaeology and anthropology classes at Columbia University in New York City and at Community College in Baltimore. In sum, I have taught a variety of subjects t...
My lesson with John was fantastic. He very clearly presented and explained concepts I was struggling with in philosophy and he helped me significantly strengthen the work in my assignment. We finished everything I wanted to go over and were even able to do a more in-depth analysis of it because we had time left over, which I did not expect since I did not think I would be able to understand the concept that quickly and easily, but John made it happen!

John is the epitome of effective feedback and coaching. I was insecure about my writing techniques and John was able to teach an easy formula to apply to my writing and think outside of the box. There is no fluff when it comes to his coaching he gives you the feedback you need to succeed.

John helped review the grammar and content of my SOP for several East Asian studies master's programs. I got accepted into Stanford, Columbia, and UChicago. Highly recommend him if you need help with your admissions essays! He really helped polish my essay, which I think played a big role in my getting into these top schools.

John overall is a great teacher. Very calm and collected. The way he teaches and constructs you to look at the test (SAT) is great. Highly recommend. Really enjoyed my time with John and look forward to more.
- Xander G. from Keller, TX
John helped me a great deal. I am taking a class on Landforms and Landscapes and I was struggling with coastal geographies. He spent the time the help me understand the material and guide me to the correct answer. The thing I appreciated the most was that he made a point to not give me answers and pushed me to find it on my own with his guide. I successfully submitted the assignment and feel I have a far better understanding of coastal geography more. I will definitely be asking John for more help in the future.
- Chris C. from South Webster, OH
John is fast responding my questions. He is knowledgable to work with. After his editing, the writing looks much better grammatically. I'll definitely ask for his help again next time.
- Shirley L. from Plano, TX
John did an amazing job. For someone that was struggling greatly before the session I was able to come out of it feeling much more confident in the work that I am doing. He was able to answer all the questions that I had with no problem. GREAT JOB!

John's great! My son is in grade school and with online learning being a little challenging, John still manages to keep his lessons engaging and easy to understand. My son really enjoys learning from John.
- Cristina E. from Orinda, CA
Really happy I chose John to help me with my Personal Statement for grad admissions. He was really able to point out the mistakes I have made within my essay and as well help me with the important parts I was missing. He made sure to answer all of my questions and concerns. I submitted my statement without fear of knowing it was not good or felt as if it was missing something. Thank you!!

John walked me through the brainstorming, writing, editing, and finalizing of my anthropology writing sample. He is very knowledgeable, organized, and good at teaching. He knows how to explain an anthropological perspective in a clear yet deep way. He always challenges me to think on a more sophisticated level. More importantly, with his help, I am able to step back, reflect upon my writing, and even become my own editor. Highly recommend to anyone who not only hopes to improve writing skills, but also hopes to enhance the ability of thinking reflexively, critically, and holistically.
- Zihan X. from New York, NY
He has really helped me a lot and I highly recommend him. I got behind because I got sick and he has really made a lot of things very clear on assignments I got behind on. Best tutor so have had this far.
- Angela S. from Pearland, TX
he not only helped me with my homework at such a short notice, but I was truly able to understand the book I was reading at greater depths. He explained it in a way that was easy to understand. I will definitely be working with him again. Thank You so much!

I met with John for three online sessions, he helped me develop my personal statement for grad school. John is absolutely brilliant in his approach (and I have experience with other tutors): he is encouraging, efficient, eloquent, empathetic, has excellent communication and editing skills, makes difficult topics easy to understand and hard work fun. Great value on Wyzant!

John gave me invaluable ideas for the Analytic Issue Essay. I already feel better equipped to handle it. I wish I had worked with him sooner before I took my first GRE.
- Randy B. from Bronx, NY
John M. helped me with each of the four sections on the ACT to make sure I was prepared for the upcoming test. He gave me some useful strategies that helped me increase my accuracy, and also taught me how to time myself. The stress of taking the ACT has been relieved a little bit, and I feel more prepared. He was super nice and helpful, and he made studying for the ACT more approachable.
- Helena R. from Reno, NV
