About John

I am a former high school English teacher and current attorney. I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature, a master's degree in English Education, and a doctoral degree (J.D.) in law. I have over 15 years of experience tutoring at levels ranging from middle to graduate school. I enjoy working with students and helping them to reach their potential as readers, writers, and students of humanities, the law, and social science.

In my spare time, I am an avid runner (I have completed 2 half marathons) and I enjoy reading and watching movies.

I have been a student of literature and writing since my undergraduate days, when I earned my English Literature degree magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. I believe anyone can find satisfaction in expressing his thoughts and feelings through the written word and in learning more about other people and places through reading.

I minored in History in college and have long been an American History buff, particularly the Revolutionary War and the 20th century. Through good teaching, history can come alive and become an exciting adventure.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you. Teaching and learning should be fun, and for us, it will be!

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.

Bible Studies

As an undergraduate, I took two theology classes, "The Problem of God" and "Christian Religious Tradition" which entailed significant reading of the Old and New Testament. I subsequently took a graduate course at Columbia University, "The Bible as Literature," which focused on detailed reading and analysis of the Old and New Testament in the King James edition, as well as secondary sources and apocrypha. I have remained interested in the Bible as a practicing Christian ever since.
