About John Paul

I was a sales and marketing professional, working with Fortune 1000 executive-level contacts for 20 years before focusing on sharing my passion and knowledge of language and business as a tutor for the last 6 years. I have a Cambridge-certified CELTA and 6 years of teaching experience in myriad aspects of academic improvement and business-related English skills. My teaching style is highly dynamic, engaging and uncommonly creative in custom-tailoring, fun and challenging lessons to the unique requirements of each student. I have a level of professionalism, hands-on business experience, maturity and international experience that sets me apart from most other EFL tutors.

I have worked with all levels of proficiency, TOEFL, IELTS and Cambridge test prep, as well as designing and executing custom-designed lessons for college students up to corporate executives. It is very stimulating for me to get to know students from around the world and be around individuals that are excited about improving their English language skills and themselves in order to reach their personal and professional goals.

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.

Bodybuilding

I have personally studied and applied bodybuilding and sport-specific conditioning techniques over 35 years as well as training with and learning from a professional bodybuilder and certified personal trainer.

I have mentored others in bodybuilding and sport-specific training. I played competitive sports in High School, college and private leagues as an adult, and participated in extensive strength and conditioning programs for each level.

Career Development

I worked as a recruiter for several years. In the course of my duties, I had to counsel my clients on interviewing techniques and personal presentation, including résumés and cover letters. Later in my career, as an Account Manager for an executive technical recruiting firm, I had to make presentations to Fortune 1000 executives and inquire into their specific needs, negotiate terms of agreements, find, interview and present candidates.

English

Having received a BA in Political Science from UC Berkeley (the top Poli Sci program in the country at the time) I had to write MORE than my roommate, who waS an English Major. I've also had to write and edit proposals for presentations to Fortune 1000 executives.

My certification in EFL, and 6 years of teaching experience, has included extensive writing analysis and improvement teaching.

I am also an accomplished writer of short stories and poems in my private life.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching EFL to young adults and professionals for 6 years. I have taught students from many different countries, both here in SF and abroad. I have a Certificate of English Training of Adults, underwritten by Cambridge University and a B.A. from University of California at Berkeley.

General Music

I have formally studied Jazz and Classical performance in school, including at the College level. I have continued formal academic and private lessons a good portion of the last 35 years.

I was awarded the Loius Armstrong Award in High School, for the outstanding graduating senior in musical performance.

I have performed professionally in numerous genres over 25 years.
