About John

If you're an adult and you want to learn creative writing from a practical point of view, if you always wanted to write short stories, poems, plays or screenplays but just couldn't get started. If you feel the need, the passion to write is as essential to your life as breathing, I can help. Aside from winning awards for writing I have published poetry, and short stories. My plays have been produced on regional stages and in New York. I studied screenwriting at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. I have also published a novel. Let's get started on that, poetry, play, short story, screenplay, novel you've always wanted to write. My methods are unconventional but they have worked for me, let them work for you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have been certified by WyzAnt to teach ESL students. I have taught reading to high school students reading below grade level. Furthermore, I am a published author and a playwright.
