About John

I currently teach history and writing to high school students and an early college program. I am degreed in English and History, and experienced in a wide range of academic subjects. My instructional style is engaging, relevant and fun. I am great with young people and personally care about their learning and success inside and outside of the classroom.

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.

American History

I have a PhD in African American and United States History.

English

I have a bachelors degree in English, and a PhD in African-American History. I teach writing as well.

Public Speaking

I have been involved in public speaking for over 20 years. I won my first speech contest at the age of 14. Since then, I have won several additional awards, including a state championship in Wisconsin, been formally trained, presented at numerous academic conferences, represented the Southern Poverty Law Center, and currently facilitate workshops nationally for the award winning documentary "American Promise" for educators, parents and students.

I have over ten years of experience teaching World, United States, and African-American history. In addition, I have a bachelors in history from the University of Wisconsin, and a PhD in African-American and United States History from the Rutgers University. I have worked in a juvenile detention facility, the inner city of Washington DC, charter schools, and currently hold a position teaching in the Cleveland Public Schools.
