About John

I taught English conversation in South Korea and Japan from 2008 to 2010. I gained teaching experience in the classroom setting and also with individuals. I have taught from textbooks and made up my own methods of getting the concepts across. My motto is "If it is not fun it isn't learning."

Since 2002 my wife and I have shared teaching our children at home. We started very early, right after we adopted them. They are now 13, 10, and 10. Our 13 year old scored on the SAT at high school and college levels. Our 10 year old range was from 6th to 10th and she is going into 5th. I have taught them reading, writing, and math. Our next subject we would like to learn is Vietnamese. My motto still stands here to, "If it is not fun it isn't learning."

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.

Bible Studies

I am a student of the Bible, King James version. I love reading it everyday and discussing it with people I know. I have taken courses from a ministry online called Be in Health. My family has been down to their week long seminar. I have also been listening to other teachings from Michael P., and John E.

Phonics

I taught English conversation (almost 3 years) in both South Korea and Japan. One of the things I focused on was their pronunciation of words and the sounds. I have taught students from kindergarten to high school.

Sign Language

I took two semesters of American Sign Language. I know the alphabet and simple signs. I have a couple of books on sign.
