About John

I have been a Librarian for forty years and have tutored English subjects in various library jobs in my career most notably at the Career Institute of Technology and informally at Briarcliff College as part of my Reference duties.

I am 65 years old, now retired, and would very much like to help young people with learning the basic needs of meeting requirements for English studies for test preparation, GED, and for general school excellence.

I have taught Ethics at C.W. Post Palmer School of Library Science, and have lectured extensively in public libraries throughout Nassau County. I do not have a teaching degree since my major was in Library Science, but my love for writing, literature, and public speaking has always been a part of my life. I have written poetry, and am currently writing two non-fiction books on teaching self-confidence and general ethics for young people.

I am willing to undergo any background check you would require, and I am willing to be interviewed by the students and his/her parents at your home. I am a sensitive, caring, and extremely patient teacher who can work with any student. If it appears that a student is not making sufficient progress under my tutoring skills, I would certainly understand if the parents of that student would like to try someone else. My fee is lower than most because I am not a academically trained teacher.

I hope you would contact me for an interview at your convenience since I am retired, and I am available most hours of the day.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
