Hello, I'm John! I am excited to help you learn about history, geography, and political science. I have extensive educational and professional background in these areas and would love to share my knowledge to help you succeed. I personally became interested in these topics because of my love for maps. I got a globe for a birthday one year and from then was hooked on learning about other parts of the world. That turned into a love of history and geography, a career in politics and government, and numerous travels across the world. I have been to over 25 countries and enjoy learning about new cultures and the histories of that shape the places I travel to. I know many find history to be dry and uninteresting -- my goal is to bring out the major takeaways and "so what?" moments so that history comes alive for the student.

I also have a passion for teaching and helping people develop skills -- in high school I tutored my fellow classmates, in my career I have designed training materials for staff, and in graduate school I developed curriculum and taught the class below mine how to recruit for jobs successfully. I want to understand what learning methods help you succeed and make the material relevant so you can better understand it and succeed in the classroom.

I have an undergraduate degree in history from Georgetown University where I focused on the history of Europe and the Middle East from antiquity to the modern era. My focus was on the history of the Byzantine Empire, how the unique religious, political, and social events that occurred during this time period changed that empire and shaped the modern relationships of countries in Eastern Europe and SW Asia.

In my career, I also worked on political campaigns for 10 years before heading to graduate school. I know the ins and outs of the political system to give additional context to the theories and ideas taught in a government or civics class.

I am excited to partner with you to achieve your educational success. I believe that we will succeed together if we are frank about your goals and needs and create a plan together for meeting them. I'm also happy to answer any questions to determine if we are the right fit before we schedule a session.
