About John

My name is John B. and I hold a degree in Communications from San Francisco State University. I am available for tutoring in the areas of Reading, Writing, American History, and also for coaching in Soccer. I have an interest in education based on my personal experiences of learning how to learn and the lessons that have helped me become a better and more successful student. In my experiences, the methods used to learn material are crucial in the educational process. I approach teaching by understanding the learning style of the student, and then using this information to craft a personalized approach to achieving the academic goals of that student. I have developed and continue to maintain an interest in education with the goal of passing on many of the lessons and insights that have made my learning process easier throughout the years. These days, I stay occupied by studying for the LSAT in order to apply to law schools in the near future as well as coaching soccer at a local school.

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.

Soccer

I have played soccer since I was perhaps four years old. I played, and started, on the varsity team in high school for all four years. Our high school soccer team was the State Runners-Up my sophomore year, and State Champions my junior year. I scored both goals in our 2-1 victory in the state championship game in 2003. I am currently coaching soccer three days a week at an elementary school in San Rafael. I have a love for the game, as well as a fascination with teaching the strategic and technical aspects. I tailor the lesson plans to the specific needs of the children, taking great care to always make it a "game" so they will not feel that they are performing mundane drills and lose interest in their passion.
