About John


I am a college senior with experience in English grammar and vocabulary, writing and/or language arts, reading, beginning German, German grammar and syntax, German verb conjugation, math including up to Pre-Algebra, basic 2d and 3d Drawing in pencil and multimedia, beginning music theory and sight reading, sight singing, beginning and intermediate cello instruction, music history (classical), and American Kenpo Karate.

I am excited to expand and further my students in their subjects, and I hope to instill an interest for the subjects that will last beyond the required courses. Many of the subjects that I tutor are very valuable life skills. Many times non-interest in subjects comes from a disconnect of that material from the "real world." Relating the tutoring to skills they can use now will help create and maintain interest in the students.

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 currently enrolled as a senior at Hyles-Anderson College, a fundamental Baptist institution. I have written papers on most of the major doctrines of the Bible and am also familiar with many apologetics for the faith.


I have been playing the cello for over ten years. I have taken private lessons for over eight of those years. I have experience in orchestral, ensemble, and solo performance as well as respective repertoire for those areas of performance. I have taught cello on and off for several years.


I have drawn for many years. I have never formally taught art; however, my portfolio has been reviewed and commended by two different certified art instructors.

Martial Arts

American Kenpo Karate is the art I have studied the longest. I am currently a black belt, and have had two years of instructor experience. I also have training with various traditional martial art weapons including Katana, Katana & Wakizashi, Fighting Fan, Staff, and Sais.

Sight Singing

I have collegiate sight singing or solfegio training. I have taught this subject on varied occasions.
