About Johannes

I have tutored college level students in Sociology, English/English as a second language (ESL), and psychology.I have approximately 4 years of tutoring experience.

My own academic pursuits, mostly in the social sciences and in English, resulted in a college career dotted with straight As. I am a master's level clinical social worker but like to tutor on the side.

A note to prospective students about what my services entail and what they do not entail: I help you break down concepts, explain and clarify concepts; I look over assignments together with you, and I make sure that the you understand what the assignment expects from you. The tutoring process is collaborative, it involves thinking things through together, looking at organization and structure of essays, brain-storming ideas, proof-reading, etc. It is a collaborative process but you are doing the work, the heavy-lifting in terms of actually writing the paper, taking the exam, or doing the reading that is required for the assignment. Tutoring is not where I actually type up papers for you or do all the reading for you -- that is something else and is not a part of the services that I offer.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Social Studies

I majored in Sociology in college and took a special interest in the major theorists and their theories, as well as the research side of social studies. I also took classes in Anthropology, Religious Studies, Geography, as well as political science.

I tutored college students in sociology and psychology, which involved breaking down concepts and fleshing out ideas with real-life examples that my students could relate to. Additionally, I got straight As throughout college, which in and of itself is a testament of my grasp on social studies, considering the fact that I majored in Sociology and took a number of social studies classes. I also have a degree in Liberal Arts, which included many social studies courses.

Sociology

I majored in Sociology in college. I graduated from college with straight As. I tutored sociology at the college level for one year.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs populations for a total of 10 years; I have worked as a life-coach in a residential setting where I helped individuals -- teens -- diagnosed with autism, down-syndrome, and mood-disorders with basic living skills such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, and help with school work. I have also worked with a similar special needs population -- adults -- at a work-place facility that served as the day job facility of the population I worked with; there I would assist them in their work duties, which included making musical instruments. I have also worked with special needs children between the ages of 5 and 13 as a summer camp counselor; this work entailed a lot of arts and crafts activities, including song, dance, sports, and theater.

Study Skills

I tutored college students for a year and a lot of what we covered were study skills. I have had to work on my own study skills throughout my college career. Flash-cards, quizzing exercises, and tricks to help with memorization are the three main skills I believe in.
