About John

Hello! My name is Mr. K and I have been a teacher and a tutor for three years. I believe that the aim of education is to make life-long, independent learners who will learn continuously in an ever-changing world and to make an exceptional impact on society. Education needs to be an interactive experience where students learn from the teacher and then explore, discover, and communicate with the world around them.

I am a volunteer of the “Reach Out and Read” program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I strive to see students using their imagination and using writing in every subject.

Math is one of my passions because we use it everyday in our lives. I am proficient in the common core math and teach it in a way to the student's learning preference.

Since my mom is a grammar teacher, grammar is in my blood. I believe that having a well, written essay will make a student stand out in a non-grammar changing world. Also, having correct grammar will help with social and studying skills.

Common core is extremely important because it aligns all teachers to teach the same content to students. I align all of my teaching to the common core standards and ensure that each student reaches the standard before moving on to a new concept.

I love working with younger students because I can relate any content to their level and I make learning fun and interacting. I have been in the preschool and elementary setting for more than five years.

Do you want to learn in a fun, interactive way? Contact me to learn more and schedule lessons! Looking forward to meeting!

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.

Common Core

I have 2.5 years experience teaching 2nd grade to the common core. My school uses the Go math that is aligned to the common core standards. We also use "Story Town" which is also aligned to the common core, for language arts. I am constantly looking online at the standards and ensuring my teaching is aligned to the common core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my BS in Elementary Education from Cairn University. I have 2 years experience tutoring K-6 grade students at a local tutoring company. Before certified, I was a camp counselor, a Sunday school teacher, and a preschool teacher.

Handwriting

In university, part of the language arts course was to practice handwriting. I received one of the highest grades for my handwriting. For the past three years, I have taught and tutored preschool-2nd grade students on how to handwrite. I show students how to use the pencil the correct way and I sue the "house and basement" method to teach them. I have shown other teachers my "house and basement" method and they started to utilize it in their classrooms and teaching.
