Hello! I am John W. Since graduating from the University of Central Arkansas in 2014 with degrees in English and Traditional Spanish, I have devoted my career to improving the lives of others through education. I have taught children, adolescents, adults, and even teachers and am dedicated to meeting the individual needs of my students.

Even before graduating college I gained experience at my university as a Supplemental Instruction Leader. I was tasked with helping our incoming freshman build study skills to prepare them for the upcoming semester. Afterwards, I completed a year of service as an AmeriCorps volunteer with a non-profit called Reading Partners. Our organization provided tutoring to elementary school students reading behind grade level. After my year of service with AmeriCorps, I worked for two years as a Bilingual Home-School Advisor with the Little Rock School District at Baseline Academy. I assisted our school's families with basic needs, facilitated communication between parents and staff, and counseled our students on study skills and good classroom habits.

In addition to my experiences in the US, I've lived, studied, and worked in Latin America. I successfully completed a summer of study abroad in Costa Rica in 2016. In 2017, I completed a TEFL course and subsequently taught English in Colombia from July 2017 to December 2019. My time abroad allowed me to immerse myself in the Spanish language and Latino culture as well hone my skills as an educator.

My experience as a student, tutor, instructor and educator have prepared me to work with people from different backgrounds. I look forward to sharing my passion for education with you or your student. If you have any questions or would like more info, please feel free to contact me via Wyzant. I am available from 6am - 10pm CST for online sessions. I hope to hear from you soon!

Very patient, intuitive & knowledgeable...

Mr. John had a lot of patience with my child. I reviewed the two recorded sessions my kid had with Mr. John in one day and I was very impressed with his presentation and skill. My kid is picky and told me he knows Mr. John can help him with mastering his knowledge and concepts in English writing. Thank you so much. Best!

Kim, 4 lessons with John

Knowledgeable, patient and easy to use

Our son needed help with English, and John has been able to help keep him motivated through assignments. They both get a lot of work done through sessions, which has helped our son stay on top of his assignments rather than fall behind like he was.

Eliana , 5 lessons with John

Exceptional Spanish tutor

On all fronts, John does incredibly well in being a competent and understanding Spanish tutor. I've only had a handful of lessons with him, but I can say with certainty that he makes learning rewarding and fun as well as informational. john's saint-like patience is something to behold and he will give you as much time as you need to figure things out yourself; a quality that I highly appreciate in a tutor. If you need somebody to be your Spanish tutor for any occasion or level, fluent or not, John's got your back.

Daniel, 17 lessons with John

Very experienced and patient teacher

John prepares his classes very well, with very interesting exercises to improve my speaking and listening skills. He is very patient and diligent in explaining and clarifying my doubts

Omar, 36 lessons with John

Very Helpful

John is helping our son with Spanish. During the first semester he was struggling; by the end of the semester, he received an A on his final and a B out of the class. John is patient and will go into detail to help you understand.

Anese, 34 lessons with John

Amazing tutor!

John is a great tutor. He goes at your pace. I love how it’s a real fun, chill learning environment. He doesn’t just start with the lesson he actually asks you about your day and I actually appreciate that. Excited about my appointments coming up!

Dominique, 7 lessons with John

Good intro lesson

Good first lesson for Spanish 1 with my 8th grade son. He made my son feel comfortable, reviewed previous lesson, prepared for quiz and had games to help memorize vocabulary.

Irene, 1 lesson with John

Great teacher

My daughter really enjoys her lessons with John. She looks forward to her sessions. She is also pretty shy but she seems to be opening up more. She likes the 1 on 1 time. It seems like it's less pressure than her normal classroom setting. She also enjoys the games and reading subjects. This has been a really good fit so far.
