About John

Hi, my name is John and I am a retired teacher from NJ. I hold a BA in History, Teacher Certifications in Social Studies and Special Education. I have taught in a number of academic environments. I believe that everyone can learn, its up to the teacher to discover the right mix to help his students. My last tutoring job was volunteering in Cincinnati Ohio for our church. We would go into a school and be assigned a student and try to develop a relationship with them before beginning our sessions. I would like to meet the parents to discuss any insight that they could give me in order to better serve their child. I like to begin by having the students take a number of learning exercises before deciding on the best course of teaching. All students learn in their own way. Some of us are visual learners, some learn by hearing the lesson read out loud to them, and some like to learn by responding to lessons by which they would interact by doing lessons themselves and allowing me to sample their work afterwords. I try hard to make learning as enjoyable as possible. I want student to learn that learning can be fun. Lastly, I try to impart a love of reading as much as possible. I figure that in life that reading is the most important thing one can learn, we use it almost every moment of our lives. Hi, my name is John and I am a retired teacher from NJ.

I will try to work with students and family as to payments for services. If we have the time and can complete multiple lessons in one sessions I would definately charge less for each lesson.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I was employed as a Highly Qualified Special Education Teacher in New Jersey for over 10 years. I also performed Home Instruction to students who could not attend classes for various reasons. I also hold degrees in Social Studies, and Teacher of the Handicapped. I also hold a Masters At Teaching Degree.

Photography

I began experimenting with photography in the 1970's. I became seriously involved in photography in the early 1990's purchasing an advanced camera and taking two courses in outdoor photography. I have held photo exhibitions throughout the 1990's and have sold a number of my photo's. I have also interned with a professional photographer after retirement in 2010.

I am a certified Social Studies Teacher who worked in New Jersey for over ten years.
