My name is John, and I am an Army Captain with a wealth of different professional experiences, working at the highest levels of the military. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at George Washington University in Cybersecurity, and for my undergraduate work, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with BA's in Political Science and English Writing, as well as a Minor in Legal Studies. I have taught a number of high school students (subjects previously tutored: history, government, English, and SAT test preparation), and have had a 100% success rating. I have even had about 50% of students go on to finish courses with honors. Please see my course listing for the full range of courses that I can tutor. My background is largely comprised of history, government, politics, social studies, English writing, English literature, and some background in human biology. My tutoring methods are as follows: I believe in helping students achieve their academic success through composite understanding, rather than rote memorization. Only by understanding the bigger picture do all the details make sense within context, and that is how I plan to teach students, better preparing them for their current course work, as well as preparing them for future academic endeavors. In short, I teach not only to get better grades, but to build better students.

Aside from being available for academic subjects, I am a very experienced athlete. I can assist in track and field, as well as several martial arts. I can coach wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, and am a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have competed as a semi-professional athlete, and have coached students that range from beginners to other semi-professional athletes. Some of those athletes have gone on to compete at the professional level. When I am coaching, I am very detail-oriented. I will demand perfect technique in order to make you the best that you can be, as well as prevent injury.

Due to an unpredictable work schedule, please simply ask for availability.

I'd love to help you or your child succeed. Please contact me if you are interested in working together.
