About John

I am a veteran teacher with over 13 years experience teaching secondary, post-secondary, and adult education level students. I have instructed students in: ACT Verbal, ACT Writing, AVID, College Writing & Research, Economics, European History, Geography, Human Geography, QuickBooks accounting software, SAT Verbal, SAT Writing, AICE Travel & Tourism, US Government, US History, and World History. I have taught at all levels: ESE, Gifted, ELL, Regular, Honors, Advanced Placement & AICE. In my many 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 8 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 skills set in: essay writing and revision, document analysis, and graphic interpretation and analysis.

I have taught an SAT/ACT Verbal Reading/Writing class to 11th graders for over 5 years and have been private tutoring students for the past few 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 have been teaching a QuickBooks course for 12.5 years at a local night school to both accounting professionals and small business owners. For the last 8 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 various QB versions (Basic, Pro, Premier, Accountant, Online). Additionally, I have 16 years of bookkeeping business experience in: Aviation, Automotive, Construction, and Health Care fields utilizing the QB software and its related products. This has allowed me to obtain an academic and practical understanding of the software.

Lastly, I have been tutoring one-on-one and instructing in MS Office Suite - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. In this I can take you from the foundational levels of each program through to the most advanced. This, combined with having taught the QuickBooks course, has made me extremely comfortable and confident in the instruction of a software application.

Absolutely amazing! — John came to our home to tutor our daughter for the AP World History exam. He came once a week for two hours over the course of a few weeks. Our daughter loved his easy going style, but also really appreciated his wealth of knowledge. He came prepared with tips on how to take the exam, what to focus on, and review sheets to study.
