Hello scholars,

My name is John, and, if you want to achieve excellence, contact me for information and details of my exceptional experience, abilities and skills. I am originally from White Plains, NY and have been living in Fort Lauderdale, FL, for the past fifteen years.

I attended an all boys private Episcopalian boarding school in Concord, NH, called St. Paul's School. Upon receiving an academic scholarship to attend, I accepted and attended the school for three years graduating cum laude in English, Spanish and religion. I also enjoyed courses in history and the social sciences.

Once graduation from St. Paul's School was completed, I attended Princeton University for four years, placed out of the freshman English requirement and went on to major in sociology, minor in education and completed a senior thesis of over 100 pages. In 1979, I accepted a full time position teaching social studies at White Plains High School in White Plains, NY, and in 1981 procured my master of science in education with a specialization in American history.

I moved from White Plains, NY, to teach English in Cali, Colombia, South America from 1990 to 1995. In coming back to the USA, I relocated to Fort Lauderdale, FL, where I worked as an English instructor for two intensive English programs which cater to international/foreign students from all over the world. In addition, I taught English and reading at City College in Fort Lauderdale and also worked with international students there.

If you are willing to work hard, complete the assignments I give you and be open to a multi-faceted approach to learning, I am the tutor of your choice. Contact me for a brief consultation regarding my services and your goals.

Fantastic!

John not only provides excellent scholastic lessons, but relevant and poignant life lessons as well. We feel fortunate to have him as our son's tutor!

David, 25 lessons with John
Tutor responded:

Thanks so much, David N. Your family is wonderful and I feel honored to know and have the opportunity to work with your son. Thanks for your kind words, flexibility in scheduling classes with your son, and the kindness and warmth that your family, and "Coqui" - the family dog, demonstrates each time I come. I feel comfortable and can work well with your son.

Very nice tutor

John is a very nice tutor that has a lot of patience. He is very knowledgeable in all subjects and speaks Spanish, which is a great help.

Melissa, 4 lessons with John
Tutor responded:

Thanks so much to Melissa and her family for welcoming me into their home to tutor their two boys. Her husband is quite an exceptional parent who also has his boys education foremost in his mind. I aim to please!

Fantastic tutor

Mr C. has been very helpful. I have been looking for a dedicated and encouraging tutor for my daughter for the past year. He has proven so far to be reliable, resourceful, and patient. He is open to feedback and suggestions at the end of the sessions, which is refreshing. I look forward to continue working with Mr C. to instill the love of reading/writing in my daughter.

Mildred, 35 lessons with John
Tutor responded:

I am glad both Mildred and her daughter are content so far with my tutoring techniques. As I enjoy reading and writing, I plan to impart that same passion to her daughter who is a joy to work with. Her confidence is improving as we work more and more on mastery of the language.
