About John

I am a retired intelligence officer with with wide experience in almost all of Latin America and Southeast Asia. My principle duties included writing timely and tangible reports on a variety of subjects for policy makers. I proofread and analyzed raw intelligence for possible inclusion in finished intelligence reports. I also taught in Spanish foreign liaison officials effective reports writing.

After retirement, while living in Chile, I successfully taught English to foreign college students and faculty wanting to study in English-speaking countries. Several are now university professors in their native country.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

While living in Chile for nine years, I taught English to college students studying for scholarships to graduate schools in English-speaking countries.

ESL/ESOL

While living in South America I tutored a number of college students to help them pass the TOEFL test for study in an English-speaking country. Several are now Professors in Chile. I also tutored a Chilean woman who graduated from a Chilean college with a major in tourism. With her improved English she met and married a wealthy Englishman and they are now running a high class bed and breakfast business in central Chile.

I have also been helping my Chilean wife to learn and approve her English.
