John Henrikson, founder of MTPS, is a resident of Fair Haven, NJ and an experienced secondary school teacher. John holds two degrees in Biology and has been teaching AP Biology and AP Environmental Science at a major all-boys prep school in northern NJ for over a fifteen years.

As a seasoned professional with a love for learning, John has been working in the test prep industry for more than 20 years.
