About John

I specialize in teaching reading because without the ability to read learning is difficult. Teaching requires more than an understanding of the subject matter. More importantly it requires an understanding of how children learn. I earned my Masters degree in the Psychology of Education from Columbia University. The core of my studies revolved around how children learn.

I have taught remedial reading in New York City public school system. I am currently a substitute teacher in both Flagler and St. Johns counties and tutor reading on a private basis.
