About John

I am an experienced (30+ yrs.) elementary/middle school teacher and I hold a Masters Degree in Teaching (Northwestern University, 1974). I have undertaken doctoral level work in special education (mildly handicapped, University of Oregon, 1980). I have both stateside (Chicago, ILL, Portland, OR) and international teaching experience (Greece, Taiwan, Mainland China). I can teach reading, language, grammar and writing as well as all elementary subjects.

I have an engaging teaching style and personality. I use humor liberally. I am extremely skillful in tailoring instruction to a student's specific instructional needs.

In recent years I have started a teaching business online. I offer instruction via Skype. I tutor students in conversational English, Business English, writing and test preparation (IELTS, TOEFL and GED). Regarding the GED, I am presently preparing myself to tutor students on the new GED (January, 2014) which will be offered online and which has a new focus on reasoning and thinking skills vs. mere factual knowledge--a gateway, should a student pass the test, to continuing community college studies.

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.
