« Perfect! Jhon was a great physics tutor that helped me to understand a broad range of topics while I am studying aviation physics. For any concept that I had trouble with, he was able to explain it clearly and always made sure that I had fully understood it. I was able to ask any question comfortably and, for the topics that I struggled in, he was able to tailor the materials so that I got the most out of the sessions. He really helped me boost my confidence in physics. I would highly recommend him. »

Jhon's response

Guy is an excellent student, we went through different fields of physics such as classical mechanics, fluids and thermodynamics. Just need to keep practising. A good person with big goals and dreams.

Perfect! Jhon has a very good understanding of mathematics and quantum physics.

He tailors each lesson to cater for my curiosity on a wide range of topics and helps me learn Mathematica while studying quantum physics.

I look forward to building a quantum computer with Jhon while completing my PhD.

I've let the Nobel prize committee know our postal address! :-)

Jhon's response

He is a great learner with entrepreneurial nature, thirst for knowledge and high commitment. We studied advanced maths and programming to travel through Quantum Mechanics. We will hopefully build a quantum computer.

Jhon was my teacher at high school and I love how he teach. He is pretty patient and explains everything step by step. He focuses on teaching the intuition behind everything and that makes the class so valuable.

Interview with Jhon

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and private tutoring?
Jhon — When I was in high school maths and science, in general, were the easy subject for me. I was told by my teachers to support my classmates and I think that since 8th or 9th grade I started to be kind of a tutor for my friends. Social sciences though were my week side and so they helped me a lot as well. When I started Uni, It was a good way for me to get some extra money, however about midway I got so many students that I couldn't handle them, they sometimes asked me for extra time and for other subjects. Then set a small group of teachers in different areas that were around the city tutoring. Since then I haven't stopped teaching and supporting students. Now with the internet, I can do it all over the world, although I have had mini breaks due to research and travelling.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach and the topics you like to discuss with students (possibly those you like a little less).
Jhon — I teach mostly physics, maths and chemistry to students in the last years of high school or almost any high university-level students. I have taught small kids in primary school, however, I think I have a better vibe with the big ones and mature people.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Jhon — I remember that my physics teacher was Fernel and nobody liked him because he was really mean and cranky during the lessons. However I remember that he explained really well and his voice was really strong, he seemed to be yelling all the time, but that was his way to keep the class quiet and paying attention.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Jhon — A good tutor needs a connection with the student. It is not knowing the topics well and understanding the way the students think and making them feel confident to ask and make mistakes. Learning is a journey and teachers and tutors need to build motivation that makes them create or discover their own way to learn.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Jhon — I would say that I decided to study physics in 10th grade when I had to do a project in holography. I went to the National University to find information about it and I had a chat with some of the physicists that later on were my teachers in my bachelor. They just showed me the labs and the projects they were working on at that time.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or are still facing in your subject?
Jhon — There were many difficult subjects and teachers in my bachelor and master. Of course, there were many topics that I had to read and practice heaps of times. I remember one special subject that was really hard for me it was called Topology. It is a really formal and abstract mathematical way to study simple things. However, it is a different and advanced way of reasoning.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Jhon — Teaching, learning and researching are my main passions and my profession. Nevertheless, music is my hobby and my other occupation. I have been in different bands and music groups playing guitar, charango, flute, quena and different percussion instruments. I also do guitar lessons if you are interested.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering these interview questions :-P)?
Jhon — More than 15 years of experience teaching, mentoring and tutoring.
