About John

All public high school students in Virginia seeking a standard diploma must now pass an industry certification exam such as the WISE Financial Literacy Exam or Workplace Readiness Exam in order to graduate. This new graduation requirement has added another level of difficulty for students that already may need some extra support.

I can help. 100% of my students have passed their industry certification exams following intensive tutoring and remediation. My students have improved their scores by an average of 34%. Many of my students have failed industry certification exams multiple times, prior to tutoring.

I tailor material to meet the learning needs of students with disabilities and students with language difficulties. My approach is built on providing individualized instruction that builds on students’ existing strengths. Teaching critical concepts and building students’ vocabulary is key component of my approach.

I am currently a Career and Technical Education teacher with one of the largest school districts in the country, and have had over 500 students obtain industry certifications during the past five years. I have been consistently recognized as a W!SE Gold Star teacher (over 90% pass rate on W!SE Financial Literacy Exam). My students have also gained countless other certifications, including Workplace Readiness, Microsoft Office Specialist, and Adobe Certified Associate.
