About John

Hi, I'm John. As a tutor, I specialize in helping students write better. If you're aiming to improve your essay-writing skills and/or want to learn how to create compelling, well-written fiction stories or poetry, I can help you. In addition, I provide effective tutoring in preparing for the evidence-based Reading and Writing sections of the SAT.

I received an A.B. in English Literature, with an emphasis in Creative Writing, from Stanford University. I've provided one-to-one tutoring in SAT Reading and Writing at the high school level and in essay-writing at the middle school level. At the college level, I've provided tutoring in critical reading and essay-writing. I've also worked with high school and middle school students in the context of a church youth group. As a published poet and writer, I understand how to excel in creating pieces that are concise and powerful. I write fiction, drama and poetry, with work published or performed in Southern California, New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area and online.

The first tutoring session is provided as a free consultation. My approach is highly inductive—asking questions with the intention of helping the student own not only the work but also his or her progress. I'm a good listener, and I bring strong encouragement and understanding to the student-tutor dynamic. One of my paramount goals is to help each student have fun while he or she grows in the art of studying well. For those students who are planning to re-take the SAT, my goal is to help each student score at least 20 percent higher on the combined score for the Reading and Writing sections (or a perfect score, whichever comes first).

Thanks for reading this. I invite you to contact me so that I can help you reach your academic goals.
