About John

Hello Students and Parents,

My name is John, and I may be just what you are looking for in a tutor.

In December, 2014, I completed my studies at the College of Saint Elizabeth, earning my master's degree in education (K-5,) with a (certified) concentration in Special Education (Teacher of Students with Disabilities). I also have a BA in Sociology/Anthropology from William Paterson University. My time in between schooling was spent in the private sector working in the fields of accounting, market research, retail, and property management. I am currently working as an instructional aide while seeking a full-time teaching position, and tutor through WyzAnt. I am also available in the summer to help prepare your child for the next grade or help him/her retain information from the prior school year.

I have worked with students from grades Pre-K through 8, including substantial time spent with special education students. Whether the student learns best through an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic style, I can be of help.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Certified K-5 elememtary school teacher (K-5). GPA of 3.85 Praxis 2 Elementary Ed: Content Knowledge score: 187.

Elementary Math

With a background in accounting, and a very high Praxis score in Math, I can help students enjoy math, which will in turn help grades and understanding.

Elementary Science

There are so many areas of science. I have studied Human Biology, Field Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Archaeology, Astronomy, and other sciences. I can motivate the student to become interested in science, which can improve study habits, understanding, and grades.

Grammar

Do nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, clauses, phrases, conjunctions confuse you? Through reading and writing I can help you better understand grammar.

Reading

Through coursework and actual classroom implementation of the strategies of Fountas and Pinnell's Guided Reading, as well as Keene and Zimmermann's Mosaic of Thought, I am able to bring the reader to the next level by using proven strategies.

Spelling

There are hundreds of thousands of words in the English language. I can help anyone who has trouble spelling through the use of reading, writing, phonics, and listening.

Vocabulary

Building an impressive vocabulary takes practice and patience. There are several strategies I can help you with to improve your vocabulary, so do not be distraught.
