About John

Hello,

My name is John E. I have a Bachelors in biology and a Masters Veterinary Science specializing in molecular genetics from the University of Kentucky. I am currently finishing my PhD in the same field of study at the University of Kentucky. My education is highly science-based in biology, chemistry, genetics and math.

To give some background about my personal and business experiences, I owned an equine management company for 18 years with clientele world-wide. I also judged equines and consulted with breeders and breed associations on an international level.

I have given numerous seminars on managing and working with equines to groups of all ages including young children. I taught many young equine enthusiasts how to exhibit and care for their animals and feel I have a keen ability to interact with them in a positive manner even under stressful circumstances. I have three children with ages ranging from 23 to 6, so I have experience with all aspects of all primary and secondary subjects and current education protocols being taught today.

I am interested in tutoring as a way to increase my exposure in individual student and teacher interactions. Teaching primary and secondary aged children add to my college and graduate teaching experience I already have acquired. I believe personal interaction with a student is essential to assist his or her ability to learn the volume of information in the subjects taught today. There is great satisfaction in helping a student feel confident and empowered with knowledge in a subject that may seem overwhelming to them.

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.

Genetics

I have an MS in molecular equine genetics and I am currently a second year PhD student within the same field. My Master's thesis entailed my discovery of four genetic mutations, in the gene ACAN, which are associated with equine dwarfism. My work also produced four commercially available tests for horse breeders to use to test their livestock. I am involved in current work with genetic susceptibility of equines to Equine Arteritis Virus.
