My degrees are in math and science, and I've been a writer for 40 years. I specialize in test prep, particularly for SAT and ACT. I cover all the bases: math, English, writing, reading, science, and strategy.

My teaching style is to be patient and supportive but persistent, always keeping the goal in mind. I design a schedule for each student depending on his/her abilities. With thousands of hours of SAT and ACT tutoring behind me, I know all the tricks to getting to the answer faster ...

John has done a great job preparing my daughter for her SAT and ACT. He knows what to have her study and assigns good homework. Really appreciate how he has managed the whole process. We?ve already done lots of lessons with him and will continue!

Jon P. did weekly lessons with my daughter to prepare her for taking the ACT and SAT tests. She was very happy with his approach and preparation. He was unusual (and great!) in that he able to cover all sections (math, english, science). He put a plan in place and each week she?d do some homework and then they?d review it and he?d teach her various approaches. My daughter had some test anxiety and her work with John made her feel well prepared and less anxious. She did the ACT after about two months of weekly lessons and was ecstatic about her results, which put her in range for various of the UC universities. We fully expect her scores will go up as she continues with John and tests again. We highly recommend John and will continue to use him as my daughter continues her test prep.

Hi, Both my kids were very impressed with Jon's test prep techniques. He was patient, knowledgeable, through and made sure to assess each kid individually for strengths and weaknesses even though he was working with both them in the same sessions. His questions helped them understand their weaknesses which is great because now they can work on it well in advance of taking the exam. Thank you Jon!

Jon was very accomodating with my son's schedule. We really appreciated him and the way he helped make sure he was prepared for his test. He shared great test strategies and had high content knowledge. My son felt much more confident going into the ACT after his lessons with Jon.

Jon was patient and my daughter felt very comfortable with him. His experience as a tutor definitely helps him in figuring out what the students needs are. He is an ace tutor and I definitely recommend him.

My son absolutely loved working with Jon aka Coach. He said he was very easy to understand and his strategies really were very helpful. He said he was smart and down to earth. My son took the SAT?s this past Saturday and said he felt more confident. would totally recommend Jon. We may take SAT?s again in May and Jon will then continue to tutor Matt once a week.

Jon has helped me regain my confidence after 20 years put of school. I have learned more in 2 tutor sessions with Jon then I have in months. Job's calm and supportive approach to teaching is spot on. His explanations are precise and make sense.

My sons SAT score went up 180 points after just 5 lessons with Jon! Amazing! He has been working regularly with John and plans to take the SAT again in March. My son really likes his teaching style and said he explains things very well. We?ve had some tutors that haven?t measured up to expectations. Jon however far exceeds our expectations- He?s the best!

Jon P was awesome for my girls !! He was patient and kind and started with the basic questions to ensure a perfect starting point ! I was worried about online tutoring but those worries left the minute he started with my girls . I can?t say how thankful I am that we found Jon P , you are a God send . We will be using him all the way up to the SAT to ensure great scores for our daughters

Math nuts and bolts for the SAT - feeling like my kid is getting great prep!!! She likes the breaking down of all aspects of a question or section. She is getting so much out of these sessions that she doesn?t even complain about doing them!
- Jen C. from Denver, CO
My son was able to identify some fundamental math knowledge gaps that needed to be addressed. I am pleased. Jon was very accommodating of our schedule as well. We plan to schedule more sessions.
- Najah D. from Decatur, GA
My daughter has been meeting with Jon twice a week for the last 6-7 weeks and felt very confident going into the test. I highly recommend Jon if you are looking for a tutor to help with the SAT. Thank you Jon for all your patience, compassion and hard work. It definitely helped gain confidence in our daughter.

My son has gotten a great deal out of his SAT tutoring lessons with Jon..aka Coach. He?s a very patient tutor and explains things very well. My son previously finished a well known SAT course that he did not find helpful. His lessons with Jon however focus on content and strategy which has been fantastic. He just took the SAT yesterday for the second time and he said he felt much better about it this time thanks to his lessons with Jon. We will definitely continue working with Jon- he?s a gem!
- Lara T. from Beverly, MA
