About John

Hello! I am an International Student Advisor at New York University and previously worked at New York School of Interior Design and ELS Language Centers in Manhattan. Throughout my time in New York, I have tutored many students, proctored and administered TOEFL exams, and proctored and graded IELTS exams.

Prior to moving to New York, I taught English in South Korea. While studying Fine Arts and Family Social Science in College at University of Minnesota, I spent two summers teaching English at summer camps in Japan. I have also studied Spanish and Italian, and spent a semester studying abroad in Florence, Italy.

Aside from tutoring and advising, I am an avid runner, athlete, and artist. I spend my time in the city going to concerts, trying new food, and hanging out with friends. I love to travel and experience new countries and cultures whenever I get the chance.

As you can see from my Bio, I have years of experience advising and tutoring international students in New York and have taught English in Yeoncheon, South Korea and in/around Tokyo. I am able to help students with grammar, conversational English, resumes & cover letters, help them understand immigration status, etc.

I have been a runner for as long as I can remember and have played almost every sport imaginable. My first two mile run was about 20 years ago and since then, I have ran a marathon in Madrid, 10K's in Seoul and Florence, and half-marathons all around the US. I was a Cross Country and Track & Field captain in high school, and am currently training for The New York City Marathon. Aside from running, I play in a New York City volleyball league, swim recreationally, and bike all around the city.

I am a kind and approachable person. My tutoring style is very laid-back and relaxed. I am open to structuring each tutoring session to be as formal or informal as the student wants. Please contact me if you think that we would be a good match. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Track & Field

I have been a long distance runner since beginning Cross Country in middle school, almost 20 years ago. I am a New York Road Runners (NYRR) member, recently qualifying for The New York City Marathon after completing nine NYRR qualifying races and volunteering with the organization. My first full marathon was the 2014 Madrid Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. I have also ran 10K races in Seoul and Florence, and had ran five half-marathons all around the US. I was a Cross Country and Track & Field captain in high school and am able to provide runners/runners-to-be with training plans and tips for pacing and training.

Volleyball

I have been playing volleyball in a New York volleyball league for the past three years, year round. My position is middle, but I also play outside & opposite and am familiar with all positions. I am familiar with all volleyball rotations: 4-2, 6-2, and 5-1 and would be able to teach someone about how the rotations work and the proper positioning for each player, during those rotations.
