About John

Hello, my name is John and I have a B.A. in English as well as an M.F.A. in Creative Writing, both earned at George Mason University. I have worked as a writer for several years, most recently as the Senior Content Developer for Premier Exhibitions, where I researched and wrote the exhibition copy and catalogs for traveling exhibitions such as "Titanic," "Bodies," "Star Trek," and "Terra Cotta Warriors." Now I am taking all that I have learned in college and the workplace and applying it to doing something I enjoy--teaching children how to read and write in English to the very best of their abilities (I also tutor children in American and World History--my minor at George Mason was in Russian History).

I don't use one method of teaching. Each child is different, and no two children learn in exactly the same way. I strive to understand each child's individual needs, and tailor my tutoring methods in a manner that best fits those personal needs. I also believe that a key facet to learning is enjoyment, and keep that in mind as I tutor--the more a child enjoys the subject matter as well as the teaching methods employed, the more that child will learn and retain.

Though I am fully capable of teaching English grammar and English as a second language, I consider myself most adept at teaching kids reading comprehension and methods that will allow them to write effectively in a variety of subjects. When tutoring children in history, my main areas of interest are American and world history, as well as classical literature.

I live in Reston, and prefer tutoring in that area as well as Fairfax, Loudon, Fauquier, Clarke, and Warren counties.
