About John

I am a multi cultural and multi discipline writer and teacher.

As of 08/04/2016 I hold a State of California K-12 Substitute Teaching Permit.

I have taught in third world middle and high schools and at universities. My background is sophisticated and varied, ranging from systems analyst/programmer to television producer/writer/director and numerous other employments from mechanical repairs to computer assembly.

I am culturally competent and have a record of obtaining 22 scholarships for my university students and science prizes for my middle school pupils. I am a certified adult education lecturer in New Zealand.

I hold dual citizenship (USA by birth/New Zealand by naturalization) and I have been around the world nine times in total.

I relate the theory of math to the real world and provide visual and physical examples of the ways maths are all pervasive in the real world.
I can demonstrate science at many levels from my personal experiences which are as varied as a chemistry major for two years (undergraduate) and working in aeronautics and nuclear experimentation (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center).

I also presented a science news program in New Zealand. Furthermore I individually identified and proved the existence of ground level ozone in the Cook Islands school where I taught for 18 months.

If you wish to know the world as well as a super hero, then let's talk about how you can learn the way the world works.

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.

ACT English

I have earned a BA English minor Chemistry and Humanities and a MA with Distinction in Communication. I have 6 years teaching at university; 2 years middle school teaching. And I am
currently a long term Substitute in Sonomaz County schools.

Film

I have worked for over 20 years in film production with 35mm and 16mm professional film recording media, the video tape media that has largely replaced celluloid film and magnetic tape and now work in solid state recording media.
I have seen the emergence of digital recording replace the high quality images of film and tape.
That new world is where I position myself as a film tutor.

I wrote, edited and directed moving image productions for broadcast TV, video production and even did an MA degree in the future moving image media, virtual reality.

All aspects of moving image production are within the realm of my expertise and that includes image capture and manipulation, audio capture and manipulation and the full panoply of professional post production.

Theatre

I have written and directed dance, plays and variety shows for various for-profit and non-profit causes. My best result was a sold out run of a children's play which was put on by a children's theatre group.
I have presented on TV and on stage and have a large knowledge of dramatic literature.

Video Production

I have written, produced, directed, edited and taught film and TV production during a 20+ year career in 35mm, super 16, 2in, 1in and 1/2 inch video tape moving image work. I am currently developing 4K methods and projects that will supply the lack of content for 4K screens.
I have researched and written the first NZ treatise on virtual Reality as a new communication media in 1991.
