Hello to all my potential students and future leaders. My name is Johnavan and I have over 17 years experience working with parents and students. I am currently employed with the state as a juvenile probation officer in which I assist and advocate for kids who have been referred to the legal system. I have worked with youths ranging from ages 7-21 and have previous tutoring experience with elementary and middle school students.
My education background includes a bachelor's in Criminal Justice from South Carolina State University. I also have a double master's in Computer Resources and Information Management and an MBA in Business from Webster University. I have tutored in English, math, science, spelling, vocabulary, and social studies. My personal approach to tutoring is it takes a team effort. The team includes parents, the student, and myself. All of us need to be on the same accord to have a successful outcome. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I hope to get the opportunity to work with you.

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.
I played basketball back in high school. I was the point guard but also played shooting guard as well. This is my favorite sport of all. I have worked with elementary and middle school kids in helping them learn the fundamentals of the game. Being 6'2 and about 195 pounds, I stand out to others as someone who enjoys teaching and playing basketball.
I have a graduate degree in Business Administration and am quite familiar with a lot of Business courses. Some of my Business courses include Accounting, Statistics, and Marketing. I had a GPA of 3.5 in my MBA program.
I have an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice. I am currently a juvenile probation officer for the state of South Carolina. I have over 12 years of experience and come in contact with every aspect of the justice system to include prosecutors, judges, and law enforcement.
I tutored kids from k-6 as part of the No Child Left Behind Program in South Carolina. I assisted them with reading, spelling, and basic math. I met with them at their homes and sometimes at the library.
I played football back in high school. I know all the positions on offense and defense. I am also familiar with plays as well as rules of the game. In my younger days, I played the position of linebacker and defensive end.
I took marketing classes as part of my graduate degree program. I was taught how to market and create a competitive advantage on goods and services.
Public speaking is something I do daily. Although I took the course in undergrad, I use it today to present cases to family court judges as part of my duties as a probation officer. Public speaking involves speaking clearly and making sure you give your audience appropriate eye contact.
