About John

I am currently studying Biology with a concentration in Health Sciences with the intent to pursue a medical degree. I had the privilege of playing football at Tech which gave me an ample amount of experience in efficient and effective study habits for all subjects. Throughout these past few years, I have gained experience tutoring through the Athletics Department. Some of the subjects that I have experience tutoring in are Microbiology, Anatomy, Chemistry, and College Algebra.

I have received a lot of my teaching training through my mother. She is a high school teacher and specializes in assisting those who may need extra help or have the material taught in a different fashion. She has shared many tips and tricks throughout the years that have assisted me in my academic years.

I approach tutoring in a way similar to life - learn from others while applying these findings with my own experiences. There have been many teachers in my life that have impacted me and made me want to share my experiences and knowledge with others as well. I try to assess the baseline of subject knowledge and learning techniques and then find ways to help the student succeed. Other than that, I don't have a strict way of teaching. Learning is fluid and I realize that because I had to adapt as a student to learn material, I need to adapt to a students' needs as well.

In addition to the tips and tricks of my mother (a high school math teacher), I have taken College Algebra, Statistics, and numerous upper-level science classes that require mathematical skills. I have experience tutoring fellow college students as well and have found that there are multiple ways of learning something - especially math. I approach tutoring in a way similar to life - learn from others and apply these findings with my own experiences.

I have taken a plethora of Biology classes in addition to participating in a research project under a professor in the field of Mycology and Microbiology. From Intro to Biology all the way to Advanced Topics-Research, I have spent countless hours in the the vast field of Biology. I feel as though these hours spent learning multiple aspects of this area gives me a unique understanding of the field of Biology. It can give me a different perspective that most people do not have the privilege of attaining.

Luckily, I was a kicker in Division-1 football at Tennessee Technological University and have played multiple positions throughout the majority of my life. This gives me the experience necessary to give advice to those seeking and willing. I have also given multiple lessons to both middle school and high school-aged kids. Additionally, I have had experience going to multiple high school and college camps as a camper. This has given me a significant amount of exposure to different coaching styles and techniques.

I enjoy the process of learning and love seeing other people grasp concepts. I have a broad background of studies and am easy to get along with. I will try my best to help you out as best as possible!
