About John

Hello,

I am a former middle and high school teacher. I have 5 years of teaching experience. I taught math and social studies at Laing Middle School in 2016, and Laing was selected as the nation's top STEM middle school in 2017.

From 2013-2016, I taught special education inclusion and resource at Pontotoc High School in Mississippi. My duties involved creating individual education programs for students with disabilities and tutoring them in math, English and reading. My only other teaching job before that was serving in the same special education role at Senatobia Elementary School in 2012-2013.

I started tutoring students in math eight years ago while I was still in college. I have continuously tutored students in addition to my full time role of teaching ever since then. I'm excited to be able to transition into tutoring full time for the first time ever. I can tutor all forms of math up to Calculus 1. I can tutoring English, social studies, ACT and writing papers. I tutor students of all ages elementary to adult.

I would say that my methods involve a lot of positive reinforcement and planning. I like to look at a student's thought process in order to learn where the problem is stemming from. I believe that staying positive and trying various ways to simplify the material helps the students to achieve their goals in the classroom.

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.
