About John


Bio

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....

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.

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.
