About John


Bio

My name is John, and I have always felt that tutoring should be tailored to each individual. Each person learns in a different way some are more visual learners than others. Some students need more intensive sessions than others. I am a writer for Suite101.com (a non fiction site), and I also write fiction(children's stories and science fiction/fantasy). Over the years I have been an editor for a college magazine (unpaid position), and have had numerous English courses in literature and creat...

My name is John, and I have always felt that tutoring should be tailored to each individual. Each person learns in a different way some are more visual learners than others. Some students need more intensive sessions than others. I am a writer for Suite101.com (a non fiction site), and I also write fiction(children's stories and science fiction/fantasy). Over the years I have been an editor for a college magazine (unpaid position), and have had numerous English courses in literature and creative writing. In my major, English, I earned a 3.28 GPA over my college career.

While I was at Wayne State University, I was also a member of their debate team for a year. So if public speaking is a problem for the perspective student, I am very familiar with how to present a speech and a framework for it. I know how to do the research to back up what the student is saying and to prepare them for any questions that might be asked of them. A person that struggles speaking in public will have confidence to do so after the end of our tutoring sessions.

Above everything else, I enjoy tutoring/teaching people. I was a crew leader for the 2010 Census down in Detroit, and I had to teach the enumerators everything about their jobs. How to do it properly right down to the dress code. I had a rule that if ever there was a question, for them to ask it because there is nothing as a stupid question with me. The only bad question is one that is not asked.

Public Speaking

I have taken public speaking courses in college. A basic public speaking course which I earned a B in, and a debate class where I earned not only an A, but was approached by the teacher to join the Wayne State University debate team. Wayne State is one of the best debate teams in the country. I spent a year on the team as a novice. I participated in 2 tournaments (at Catholic University in Washington D.C. and at the Wayne State University Halloween debate tourney), and at each tournament there are 6 debates for each 2 person team before there a cut and the best teams continue on. In most public speaking classes, what a person is going to talk about is already known a long time in advance. If a person knows what they are talking about and are confident in it then the person will do very well. It is likely with my practical experience, that a person that struggles in public speaking will find that after preforming in front of me harder than in front of their peers.
