Academic Coach/ Private Tutor/ DUKE GRAD/ FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION (Arlington)

offered virtually

Dear Parents,

Is your child struggling academically? Have previous private tutors failed to help your child achieve sustained academic success?

You are not alone, and I believe that it is not you or your child’s fault for these academic frustrations, but rather the inadequate approach many tutors and educators take when attempting to teach and motivate students.


My name is John Hyde. I’m a licensed teacher and Duke University graduate with over 10 years of teaching & private tutoring experience.

While helping hundreds of students reach their academic potential, I’ve realized that many teachers and private tutors approach academic growth from the wrong angle. A tremendous amount of attention is paid to subject-specific skills and grades. Students are told to study, work harder, and be engaged without any attention given to the true cause of their academic struggles and/or lack of motivation.

As a result, I’ve seen many students struggle academically, not because they were not capable, but because they were not taught the proper academic fundamentals; and instead of helping them find motivation, teachers scolded them for not having it. I’ve also known students that became dependent on academic help & tutors and instead of being empowered, the extra help became a crutch.


My expertise is addressing the root cause of academic struggles. I accomplish this by tutoring foundational academic skills that apply to all school subjects, and by helping students find the intrinsic motivation that will allow them to apply their newfound skills, which may include but are not limited to:

  • Time Management

  • Organization

  • Test preparation & Study Skills

  • Note-Taking

  • Writing

  • Growth-Mindset

I don’t tell my students to work harder, I SHOW and TEACH them HOW to work harder. I also get to know my students and help them identify what motivates them. By helping students find intrinsic motivation and a growth-mindset, my students sustain their academic success.


The final piece of the puzzle is coordinating with you, the parent. I can help you find the best way to help keep your child motivated, excited, and thriving academically. Together, we can help get your child on track for long term academic success.


I am confident that I can help your student, and I want you to feel confident as well. To ensure that you fully understand my process and how my program can meet your student’s specific needs, I offer initial consultations completely free of charge.

“John has been instrumental in helping my son learn to be a student. He has helped him set up good foundations for studying, how to take notes, and organize his thoughts. John has helped my son become a successful student who knows how to tackle any subject.

“John is more than an academic tutor. He’s a teacher, a mentor, and an educational coach. One that made a huge difference for my kids and my family. My sons were often on cloud nine after meeting with John, because the stress had lifted, they felt empowered and understood. John worked very closely with me to find the best way to help my boys, so his approach was always tailored for them.The teenage years can be academically challenging and I couldn’t have made it through without his support and guidance.”

“John worked with my high school aged son Ben. John helped immensely with all aspects of Ben’s school work. John helped Ben create an organizational system and increased Ben’s confidence. John helped Ben stay on track with goals and agenda setting. John truly enjoyed working with my son, and is as invested in him as we are. He’s very good dealing with ADHD issues and learning disabilities. John was trustworthy and I know if you have a child who needs that extra help, you’ll definitely see an improvement in your child‘s understanding with help from John.”
