Hello, my name is John. I received my bachelor's degree in Journalism from California State University, Fresno in 1994 and I received my masters degree in Creative Writing from the same university in 1996. I was professionally employed as a sports writer for the Fresno Bee newspaper from 1992-1996.

After receiving my masters degree I decided to, like so many others before, "try my luck in Hollywood." I have written numerous story-stories and screenplays since. I have also been an educator since 1997.

I love teaching because I love people. The age of the student, or his/her knowledge level doesn't matter to me. If you want to learn, I will give freely of my time and my knowledge.

My tutoring style is a human one. I'm primarily a visual learner. I like to see and draw pictures and form mental images. I've had many teachers in my life, and a few wise ones. I've learned from them. I've learned that knowledge becomes wisdom only from a teacher who cares. I care.
