About John

I am a former Fulbright teacher with experience teaching high school social studies/English teacher and at the university level in a college writing program. I have received very strong student evaluations for my focus on improving student writing skills -- there are indeed some simple tricks to making your writing sharp and interesting. And if your writing is sharp and interesting, the sky is the limit.

I provide ways for students to attain mastery at every tutoring session while also working toward long-term goals. Because I've taught a variety of subject areas, I am also experienced with working toward particular tests such as AP history exams, etc.

Writing is too often presented as a mysterious process that requires talent and inspiration. My approach is to focus on nuts and bolts -- specific steps that lead to mastery and confidence.

I helped redesign the I.B. curriculum for a high school social studies department. (This work led to my Fulbright award.)

I have fun teaching and tutoring, and my approach is easy going and low-key. My schedule this summer is flexible -- I am available throughout the day and early evenings. If you have any questions, please ask.

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.

Social Studies

I hold a B.A. with Honors in history from UNC-CH. I have four years of experience teaching social studies, including geography, government, and citizenship classes. I have also taught numerous high school history courses. And, while a Fulbright teacher in London, England, I taught British versions of similar courses.
