About John

Hello! My name is John and I am currently employed as a High School English teacher in Metro-Detroit. I have taught all grades over my 25 year career and I am General Education and Special Education certified. My area of expertise is in teaching children and adults with dyslexia and language processing difficulties. I was trained 25 years ago using the Orton-Gillingham based reading interventions Project Read and The Wilson Reading System. (I currently teach reading using the Wilson Reading System because of the relative low cost of the course materials.)

I have worked with children and adults with dyslexia for 25 years. I am a certified Wilson instructor and trainer. I can guarantee that your child will be reading four to five grade levels higher within nine months based on a minimum of two lesson per week. This approach to reading is what is know as a V.A.K.T. method and requires practice after the lesson. That means that homework must be completed to see good results. With this reading method - all children can learn to read and at any level.

I have taught ACT and SAT writing at a Detroit area high school and produced consistent gains for my district over 10 years. I can teach ACT and SAT writing in small groups.

I currently use Wilson Reading System materials to teach reading to dyslexics and students with language processing problems. The following concepts are taught: phonics, syllabication, exceptions, blending, and reading fluency with 100% accuracy. I have worked with many students of high school age beginning in 10th grade and had all of these students go on to earn degrees at major universities.

I am easy going and also write comic books. I love teaching reading and can provide help where others have failed. I am results oriented and will make your child a better student and teach them to love reading.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Dyslexia

I currently hold a Michigan Teacher Certification in Secondary English (BA) and Social Studies (CX). I also hold the Learning Disabilities (SM) endorsement. I am trained and certified to teach The Wilson Language System and Project Read. These are both Orton-Gillingham based reading interventions. I have 26 years experience as a teacher in both General Education and Special Education.

Public Speaking

I have a Michigan teaching certification in English (BA). I have coached a high school forensic team and debate. I am a member of AGMA the performing arts union for singers and dancers. I have taught Speech One and Two and Dramatics at the high school level in Detroit and Dearborn Public Schools. My career in the performing arts spans 35 years as a rock musician, a singer in the Michigan Opera Theater, television commercials, and many independent films. Also, being a high school English teacher doesn't hurt !
