John is a wonderful tutor. He has tutored both of my kids in AP World History and AP U.S. History. My kids found him to be extremely knowledgeable on both subjects. He made the material much more interesting & was very good at highlighting the important points of the subject matter.

We've worked with John for two years and have had great success. He tutored our son in AP World and AP U.S. History. John is incredibly knowledgeable in both areas and was able to translate all the details of the classes into an edited, easy to grasp format highlighting the most important concepts. John met weekly with our son to not only review the unit but also prepare him for each exam. His style of tutoring is engaging, asking questions for critical thinking which is extremely helpful in writing well-thought-out, good essays. We would highly recommend John to anyone needing to boost their understanding of either of these fast-paced AP classes.

Working with John helped me not only with one subject, but also with how to study in general for any subject. As a student, I had a tough time studying the correct way and John definitely showed me how to properly study. One of my weakest points in academics was history. I never did well in history and started off not doing well. After getting help from John, I raised it up to an A throughout the course and I can honestly say I am glad I went to John for help. He is a very determined person and it shows when you are with him.

Thank you to John for helping me to succeed in both AP World and AP U.S. History. He was able to clearly and concisely explain anything I did not understand and I became much more comfortable with the material as a result. Without John's assistance, I would not have achieved the level of success that I did [A's in both classes; 5's on both AP tests].

John's tutoring was instrumental in my scoring a 4 on the AP World History Test and a 5 on my AP U.S. History Test. His helpful reviews and guides also helped me to learn the material and do extremely well in the class.

We went to John a few weeks into the school year when our daughter was really struggling with AP World History. He was a revelation for her! He helped to her to understand how to study, how to read the textbook more effectively and how to take the tests so that she raised her grade almost immediately. With John's help, she was able to pass the AP test and get good grades both semesters. John even helped her with essay writing for her English class on a couple of occasions. I highly recommend John to help your child with anything he says he's qualified to assist; he was great!

John tutored me in AP World history and AP American history and I did very well in both those classes. I received a 4 on the AP World test and a 5 on American history test! He helped me achieve a greater understanding of the history for both classes and gave me good tips for taking multiple choice tests and writing AP essays.

Without John's tutoring I would have absolutely failed AP European History. He's very thorough and has the patience of a monk. Worth every penny!

Great Scores, Years of Expertise

I have used John's tutoring services for two of my children. Their class grades and AP test scores were the highest in the classes John tutored. John also tutored my youngest son for his ACT test. His scores were higher than those of his siblings. I wish I had used John for the older two!

John was awesome as a tutor to help prep our son for the ACT. He really enjoyed working with John and I feel he charged a fair fee compared to most other tutors. I would definitely recommend him to help your child prepare for the ACT.

John has worked with Bjorn for two years. He has worked with my son on AP World History and on ACT Test preparation. I found John to be extremely knowledgeable in these subject/content areas. John is a very patient teacher; his delivery is professional, clear and he does a wonderful job breaking down the content for better understanding. John is very familiar with how the CDM [high school] teachers teach. He also understands what the teachers and testing centers are looking for. John helps students develop a solid foundation for the courses and a strong confidence to do well in the classroom and on testing days. John's services are reasonably priced and he is flexible with trying to work around students' schedules. I highly recommend John Miller to help your child succeed!

We have found John to be very flexible and committed when we utilized him for History and ACT prep. He made the material very understandable and clear which helped not only in one class, but related to others as well. John makes such meaningful connections that you learn the information without having to memorize it. He is a great tutor and a great resource!

We connected with John Miller before my son’s sophomore year at Corona del Mar High School, when he was facing his first AP class in World History. We then used John for help with ACT prep and during AP U.S. History. My son excelled in those classes with A's, did great on his first try on the ACT test and did well on all AP and SAT subject tests. John’s style really brought out the best in my son. They would spend an hour chatting and discussing the history topics of the week, but John was really helping him drill down and to learn to make the connections that are expected of an AP student. We are so glad we met John! He helped turn my son from a good student into a scholarly thinker.

We used John for all three of our children as they navigated AP world and found him to be extremely helpful, reliable, and easy to work with. My children felt comfortable and confident going into all their AP exams.
We also, used John for some ACT tutoring and found him to be excellent, flexible and reasonable. John is very committed to seeing his students succeed in their subject matters and is very well liked by all of students.
