About John

I began fencing when I was 37 in 1995 at the Clear Lake Fencing Club. I continued to take lessons and began competing. As time passed, I took the Fencing Officials Commission exam to become a referee. I have refereed at tournaments large and small, of local and national in scale. In 2002 I "inherited" duties (from a friend who was re-activated after 9/11) with the Galveston Fencing Club. In 2006 I took over as the lead coach for the Galveston club. I also continue as a coach for the Clear Lake Fencing Club.

For a few years I taught a Continuing Education course in foil for the College of the Mainland. I currently teach a "lunchtime" foil fencing class at the Crossfit Tidalwave in Galveston and a lunchtime beginners epee class for seniors at the Clear lake City Recreation Center.

This fall I will be teaching Continuing Education courses in fencing at Alvin Community College and at San Jacinto College, as well as a morning, before-class course for gifted and accelerated middle school students in the Clear Creek ISD.

I recently completed the United States Olympic Committee's SafeSport course in detecting and preventing bullying and abuse. I have also completed the Special Olympics course in Protective Behaviors. As a Professional member of the United States Fencing Association (USA Fencing) I am the subject of a background check every two years.

If you think fencing might be of interest to your student, please let me know.

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.
