About the lesson
I created interdisciplinary and multicultural lesson plans tailored to different student’s background. I have also been highlighted due to foster a positive classroom environment with mutual respect and consideration as collective goals and critical thinking and analysis about art and society.
- All Levels
I am a physicist from Colombia, but I moved to Melbourne, Australia, in 2018. I hold a Bachelor Degree and a Master degree. I worked as a researcher studying the structure, and the electric and magnetic behaviour of new materials. I've been teaching physics and maths since 2002 when I was finishing high school. I was usually teaching my classmates and since then I realized my passion for teaching and helping others to learn.
While I was studying for my bachelor, I started a Tutors Network made up of many teachers who were around the city tutoring all subjects and all levels. It was amazing because I had the chance to teach and enlighten students in school, university and also people older than me who struggled in different topics.
I was the head of the physics area in a prestigious School in Colombia where I taught physics to High School students. I saw seven generations of students successfully graduated and many of them have finished or are studying science or engineering-related careers. I created and support a Physics and Astronomy Club, engineering and science projects, chess club, fairy science and besides I directed a music band and choir which participated in many events.
I love experimental classes and practical lessons, for example, if you want to learn about the waves we can use music as a bridge or sports to study mechanics. To me, the most important things about learning any subject are being clear on your goals and keeping up your motivation. That is why I bring the topics to earth using real-life examples to make the concepts clearer.
I have a very driven teaching style I act as a learning coach giving you tips and teaching you how to study on your own. I usually try to answer the question of why are you learning this? and how far you can reach. I start the first lesson by going over your goals and checking your current level, especially your weaknesses but also your strengths. This helps us manage expectations and keeps us on track for future lessons and learning plans. I create interdisciplinary and fun lesson plans tailored to different students' backgrounds. I have also been highlighted due to foster a positive learning environment with mutual respect and critical thinking and analysis of art and society.
I can break down complicated topics in maths and physics into simpler, straightforward ideas. You can bring any topic you are struggling in and we will work on it together or you can ask for a specific topic and I'll prepare a lesson for you. In my lessons, I usually use google docs, screen sharing, pdf textbooks, and free online resources like applets or videos. I prefer to give out homework for you to do in your own time and we will check it at the beginning of the next lesson.
If you are looking for a friendly, experienced, and very patient teacher to expand your knowledge and skills in physics and maths, I could be the one for you. I can assist you with all topics at any level. Let's contact me, I look forward to seeing you soon!
Perfect! Jhon is very knowledgeable and has a good way of teaching students.
Perfect! Jhon is so great, he knows everything about physics, and he also knows how to teach it patiently. As well, Jhon has a software to demonstrate concepts using a grid whiteboard with many different colours, which makes the sessions engaging and easy to follow, with excellent notes to revise afterwards. Highly recommend ️
Perfect! My tutor explains the main concepts of the topic very well making it easier to understand the topic as we go further into the topic.
Perfect! John is very knowledgeable in maths, physics, he really knows how to transmit information so at the end of the lesson you can feel confident to continue studying and exploring by yourself. I recommend him very much.
Perfect! Jhon is a fantastic tutor who surpasses every other maths teacher I've had before.
He is patient and methodical in his explanations and is good at identifying which parts of a topic I'm struggling with and then explaining them in different ways until I understand.
As a person who has mostly struggled with maths all their life, he has helped me to understand it like never before and gotten me to the point where I can now do university level maths as a part of my degree.
Thank you Jhon for all your help, it's been a great experience learning maths with you!
Perfect! Jhon's super nice and legit good at explaining things!
I love that he's often showed me different approaches to solve a problem and encouraged me to try them to find which one works best for me.
Oh and... he somehow always manages to find an answer to my many "But... why?!?" moments, which is quite impressive!
Congrats on all that Jhon, and on making learning fun and engaging. You rule, stay awesome!
Perfect! Knowledgeable, patient and methodical
Perfect! Friendly and explained where I was going wrong really well. Great tutor
Perfect! Patient and very encouraging.
Perfect! My first lesson with Jhon was great. I'm sure I'll advance quickly in maths and physics with his help.
Perfect! Had a wonderful session! He really helped me work through the issues I was having and I very quickly understood content that I had spent a lot of time stuck on!
Perfect! Wasik really enjoyed the lesson from John.
- Jhon's response : I had great lessons with Mushfique's son, Wasik. He is very clever and has superb analytical thinking. We need to work on concentration and taking adequate time to solve problems.
