Β« Perfect! Due to time constraints in our personal schedule, we ended up being unable to work with John. However, I wanted to review John anyway because he was prompt in getting back to my request and he was helpful in trying to organize a group study session. It's clear that he is a professional and truly understands how to work with students. Thanks, John! We will be contacting you in the future! Β»

Career Educator with Over 15 years Teaching Experience and Two Master's Degrees

Methodology

I have been a teacher all of my adult life and I strive to help my students achieve a deep fundamental understanding of whatever they study and to make it fun and interesting along the way. I can find a way to make the material relatable and comprehensible to students of all experience and ability levels and pass along my love for learning to anyone with whom I work.

Background

I began my career as an educator while I was still an undergraduate student at the University of California, Irvine. I worked for The Princeton Review teaching SAT preparation classes and I immediately knew that teaching was what I wanted to do with my life. I went back to UC Irvine to earn my Master's in Teaching and Single Subject Teaching Credential in 2007 and I have been teaching various social science subjects ever since. I just finished a Master's in History so that I can teach at the community college level in California.
