About John

For the past nineteen years I have been a teacher at Eagle Hill School in Hardwick, Massachusetts. Eagle Hill School is a boarding school that serves students with moderate needs, specializing in dyslexia, non-verbal learning disorders, language and learning disorders, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, along with other moderate needs. Students have to be learning disabled to attend the school. I am pleased to say that over 90% of Eagle Hill students go to four year colleges.

I have taught in Revere's alternative route to a high school diploma, where the students proceeded at their own pace using a computer based curriculum. These students set their own schedules as they were unable to attend a regular high school class, due to their psychological needs, they were dropouts returning to school, difficult relations with their peers, and other barriers to working in a regular class room setting.

I have taught U.S. History I and II, World History,, and Government. I have also taught Geography, U.S Foreign Policy, and Economic Forces in U.S. History . I created a popular course on the literature of science fiction. I regularly assisted students to complete a variety of homework assignments during study hall periods. I helped students create their own organizational systems. I present various systems students may not know and have them chose which one they believe will work for them.

I look forward to working with you to help you reach your full potential.

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.
