Thanks for looking at my profile! I know the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench in your learning needs. Please contact me if you feel like your students haven't learned enough in the past year and if you need to make sure you stay ahead of the pack.

I have been teaching and tutoring math and the sciences since 2001, and I am extremely comfortable with the material and how to tutor it to the individual student. I've completed my 10,000 hours of tutoring and 10,000 hours of teaching, which ...

Best tutor for short notice . After just one session, Juan got me extremely comfortable with the calculus I needed to learn. I would recommend him for any tutoring needs.
- Gerry R. from Yonkers, NY
My children used Juan R as both teacher and tutor over the last few months. In school, they were a few grades ahead, and did not have a teacher to teach them the online curriculum that they do through Johns Hopkins CTY program. Now that their school has hired a teacher to support them, we will not be using his help. The children really enjoyed working with him, and he was able to immediately dive in and help them with any stuck problem and understanding. He was also extremely helpful in teaching them good problem solving habits and in how to keep track of their work/class notes digitally so that they have a paperless paper trail to review issues. He was also able to pinpoint what behaviors were causing repeated errors. So unequivocally recommend.

My daughter is currently in high school, but she is doing a summer internship with a physics professor at an Ivy League university. Juan helped my daughter to understand college/graduate level physics (as background reading) and also provided valuable feedback and advice to my daughter on a final research project. Throughout the whole process, Juan was very dedicated and professional - he took a lot of time outside of class to understand the requirements of my daughter's project and subsequently was able to provide classes tailored to my daughter's needs. He also has excellent communication skills, so he was able to explain complex concepts in the easiest ways possible. It was such a blessing for us to have found Juan and clearly there is a reason he has such high ratings on Wyzant! We highly recommend Juan!

Juan helped my son received a 98% on his AP physics test. The week prior having received a 64%, only after two tutoring sessions. Juan helped to point out that key information was not being taught in his class at school. Juan helped to fill in the gaps of missing information which allowed my son after only two sessions to significantly increase his score on a chapter test.
- Keli W. from Carlsbad, CA
We were very pleased with our experience with Juan. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have these concepts more clearly explained. My son now has a much more solid understanding of geometry thanks to Juan.
- Rachel L. from Edgewater, NJ
Juan is one of the best tutors we have come across. He really took the time to evaluate my son, and then worked with him to find the actual issues he was having. Most other tutors just helped work the problems, whereas Juan really wanted to find out why the child was doing things certain ways! Really amazes at his persistence and patience. Highly recommend him, worth his price!!
- Shashi D. from Greenwich, CT
My son needed help in calc 3. He is himself a tutor and a smart kid. Juan was the only one, of many tutors that I tried, who could successfully teach the difficult material with patience and ease. He is prompt and punctual. He is expensive but worth it.
- Bushra M. from Urbana, IL
Helped with understanding series and sequences and coming up with their general forms. Solidified my understanding of these concepts, very patient and great at explaining concepts.
- Justin S. from New Rochelle, NY
Juan was able to connect with my son in high school right away and explain the material to him in a way that he got it right away and now he is well in his way to do well on his upcoming tests
- Sameer B. from New York, NY
Juan's lessons were very thorough with Shane. Juan is able to very quickly come up with unique problems to challenge Shane at just the right level. Juan is the best tutor I have ever had for my son.
- Marie P. from Bronx, NY
Juan is an excellent tutor. He was able to discern where my son had difficulties. I am very pleased with him, and I believe as we go forward, my son will greatly improve in math.
- Mimi M. from Howard Beach, NY
Juan is laser focused and was able to identify the holes in teaching methods and immediately began to fix them. Calculus 2 on a college level is difficult. Add it to that mix, that it was a summer session, and a expedited curriculum, and you have a recipe for disaster. Juan was able to get me back on track in no time at all.
- Michael G. from Rockville Centre, NY
After just one lesson with Juan R my grade improved! Juan is patient and explains the concepts well. I'm looking forward to learning more with him.
- Kathy S. from Forest Hills, NY
From my daughter: Juan really helped me understand my calculus. I'm taking Calc AB. My teacher is really good but she can't help everyone which is why I am not doing so well. But Juan really helped me understand my homework. We're doing u-substitution right now.
- Cleendalys M. from Bronx, NY
Juan R. meets all of my requirements for a tutor. He is both reliable and flexible about scheduling. His knowledge of the subject matter is excellent and he has experience teaching the subject matter at the high school level, which was important to me. Additionally, my son feels comfortable with him and his grades are improving.
- Elaine M. from Glen Cove, NY
Juan works with students all day and so he clearly knows how to deal with any type of student that he faces. I have ADHD and learning disabilities and in just a few short sessions Juan really prepared me for the GRE's. I have used many tutors through Wyzant and I must say that Juan's method's are most effective. If I have to take another exam, I will be using him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking help with their math skills!
- Lauren H. from Bellerose, NY
I can't tell you how he tutors but my son (who he did tutor) said he was really good - my son felt more confident when Juan left. He is polite and respectable. From what I overheard while tutoring my son he seemed to find his weak points first and he was patient with him - So all in all as a mom and from my sons point of view Juan is a keeper as a tutor and I will use him again. He is well recommended!! Ps (and I'm picky.)
- Andrea F. from Floral Park, NY
Juan is a great tutor, really knows his stuff. Very adept in finding the problems associated with learning. Knows the material well, and even provides resources for the child to learn adequately. Spends the whole time teaching and going over material. Excellent for algebra and SAT preparation
