About John

I believe that teaching is an interactive process in which both the instructor/tutor and student are mutually growing and learning. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of age groups, from early childhood to adults, and have thoroughly enjoyed the education and experience this has yielded. In addition to this experience, I have my Bachelor of Arts in English, and my Master of Arts in Religious Studies, in which my primary focus was interfaith dialogue and intercultural studies. I am passionate about the study of and research in these two disciplines, and enjoy sharing this knowledge and experience with others. Throughout my academic and professional careers I have worked with a large number of students, tutoring in both English and Religious Studies, aiming to help them expand their knowledge in these two areas of study and the many theories associated with each.

While it’s pivotal that students learn the formal aspects of their particular disciplines, it’s also important that they simultaneously develop skills specific to those areas and understand how to apply them academically and in some cases professionally. Of particular importance in this regard is the skill of communication, enabling oneself to not only understand the material, but to express and communicate it to others as well. I believe it’s the teacher’s responsibility to continue growing and learning in order that they can successfully reach out to the students with whom they are working, and ensure that the learning experience overall is a fruitful and productive one. With this said, it is generally my practice to first identify the specific areas of the material which you find challenging. Following this I will proceed to go over the material in general, elaborating on key areas of focus, and then ask you to reflect on some questions that I have prepared, which will address the specific areas of difficulty. After we look over the questions you will also at this point have the opportunity to display your understanding of the material and concepts overall, in order that we can ensure a clear understanding of it.
