About John

I have taught social studies at the high school level for over 10 years. My experience included many years of World History, Government and American History. I have also taught geography, current events, economics and a few classes at the middle school level. I have a great ability to relate to students and use this to help build positive working relationships. The energy that I bring to the classroom is the same that I will bring to a tutoring session. Using humor, content, analogies, and current issues, I can relate the subject matter to the student for learning and mastery of the content. If the student is willing, then I am able. Often we can use visual cues to help students learn and also detailed diagrams and notes to help students make connections between different content objectives and achieve understanding of the material.

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.
