I am a veteran teacher with over 17 years experience teaching secondary, post-secondary, and adult education level students. I have instructed students in: ACT Verbal/Writing, AICE Psychology, AICE Travel & Tourism, AICE International History, AICE US History, AVID, college writing & research methods, Economics, European History, Geography/Human Geography, QuickBooks accounting software, SAT Verbal/Writing, US Government, US History, and World History. I have taught at all levels: ESE, Gifted, ELL, Regular, Honors, Advanced Placement & AICE. In my years of teaching, I developed and modified lessons to assist in building the student's abilities in reading, writing, and comprehension to advance them to their grade level and beyond.

Furthermore, I specialize in AP World History, having conducted that course for 12 years, with a successful pass rate. Also, I have sat on the revision and rewrite committee for the AP World History course. In this, I was one of 100 teachers across the United States that was selected to assist in the modification and update of the curriculum and skills required for that course. I have specifically worked one-on-one tutoring students in AP European History, AP US History, AP US Gov't, and AP World History. As a result of my Advanced Placement teaching experiences, I possess a strong skillset in essay writing and revision, document analysis, and graphic interpretation and analysis.

I taught an SAT/ACT Verbal Reading/Writing class to 11th graders for over 6 years and have been private tutoring students for the past 3 years in both exams. In this, I have developed a detailed understanding and specific lessons that assist students in preparing for the verbal and writing portions of both exams.

I taught a QuickBooks course for 10 years to both accounting professionals and small business owners. For the last 9 years, I have been working one-on-one with tutoring accounting industry professionals and small business owners in QB. I know both platforms for QB (PC and Mac) and the

Patient, knowledgeable. Took the time to help my students with the topics he needs to know well for his upcoming AP World History Exam.

I would highly recommend John for tutoring AP World History. He is knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain and review the topics that this demanding AP Exam requires. My son is very happy with how he takes time to break the topics down and makes it accessible and understandable. I would give him 5 Stars.

Very knowledgable and patient

John is exactly what I was looking for for my daughter's upcoming AP world history exam. John knows all the ins and outs out this exam. He is also very patient and we had a lot of communications before the lesson. We can't wait for our next lesson with John.

Susan, 8 lessons with John

very knowledgeable and patient tutor

My 9th grader said "John knows what he is doing!". He went over key AP world history content, pointed out what's missing from school work, had a plan and strategy for AP exam prep.

Hailan, 1 lesson with John

Wizard of AP World History

In an hour and a half, John explained all of WWI and the Interwar Period to my daughter, including social and political causes and effects, and put the events in context of things that happened before and after. It's clear that he knows his stuff backwards and forwards, and really helped my daughter fill in some blanks from class sessions she had missed.

Awesome AP world tutor

He is very good in tutoring AP world history. He seems very knowledgeable in the subject and knows how to review for AP exam. He makes the student think about points they wouldn't generally bring up. Highly recommended!
