About JD

A wise person once told me, "You can can lead a horse to water and you may not make them drink.....but you sure can make them thirsty!" That sums up my whole approach to tutoring and teaching. I can provide solid information and skill sets to help you, but you will find I am passionate about helping to make you excited about learning.

I am a teacher with 24 years of experience. Teaching at a small school district I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects. My main focus has been U.S. Government and U.S. History but I have also taught Acting, Comparative Religions and Speech. I am particularly fond of Speech and have developed a unique and rather effective approach to help prepare anyone to speak publicly.

I hold two bachelor degrees. A Bachelor of Religious a Education from Grace Bible College, a Bachelor of Arts from Calvin College with a major in History and a minor in Communications Arts and Sciences, plus a Masters in Communications from Western Michigan University.

I look forward to helping you to increase your knowledge or skill set and of course to help make you more "thirsty."

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.

Religion

I received a Bachelor of Religions Education degree from Grace Bible College, Grand Rapids, MI. I have taught the course for four years at the high school level. I have taken two trips abroad on religious study trips, one to Japan and one to Thailand.
