About John

I grew up in Virginia, and am rather well traveled. I majored in Russian with a minor in Journalism. I taught Russian as part of directed studies in college for elementary students. I also have experience tutoring college students with writing and proofreading. I taught American English in St. Petersburg, Russia for six months in 1996.

I have often been called upon in previous jobs to help train other employees. I have been utilized for proofreading skills as well, ensuring manuals and programs are grammatically correct and easily understood. I freelance graphic design skills as well as writing and proofreading skills.

I like to help/teach on the level of the student encourage growth and understanding. I enjoy equal sharing of knowledge. Learning never ends.
