About John

My philosophy centers on the belief that students deserve a learning experience that not only gives them the confidence that comes by knowing and being able to apply the “rules” of English grammar and writing, but also an experience that ties into their individuality and unique needs.

I believe that my past and current experience as a writer helps me anticipate and understand the real-world communication challenges my students will face in their classes and in their working lives.

I attempt to highlight the practicality and relevance of each writing assignment. One of the most important responsibilities I have, and one that has direct bearing on the stress I place on individualizing instruction, is providing copious and frequent feedback to each student.
