About John

My name is John. I love to teach students because I enjoy watching them make progress. I have a B.A. degree in English from Georgetown University and also a B.S. Education degree in English from Clarion University, Magna Cum Laude. I also have a Law degree from the Georgetown Law Center which is helpful when teaching government.

I prefer to work 2 hours a session because I believe the student can accomplish much more this way. While this is my preference, one hour sessions are just fine. I tutor English reading, vocabulary, writing, homework, and, of course SAT. I like to talk to the student's teacher about the student's needs and I like to obtain the teacher's weekly class preparation schedule so I can work with it. I like to discuss the student's goals with his/her parents or caregivers. I have had great success raising student's grades.

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.

Criminal Justice

As an attorney. I am of course very familiar with the Criminal Justice System. I have successfully represented defendants in court and have practiced law in Pennsylvania for over 20 years.

Social Studies

As an English teacher, a 20-year practicing attorney, owner/operator of a manufacturing company and an avid reader of newspapers and world events, I am able to interrelate the subjects of literature, world events and culture to demonstrate and discuss the social issues we face.
