I love helping students learn the beauty of English, primarily through stories and writing.
I am a very active and engaging teacher. I like to sit down with students one-on-one, help them edit their papers, and assist with their assignments. I also have a vast amount of experience assisting students with research, starting a paper, organization, how to read a novel properly for a test, and many other valuable skills for being successful in an English course!
About John R.

I graduated from the University of North Texas in Fall 2019 with degrees in English Writing and Rhetoric, and Political Science, and I minored in History. I also graduated in Spring 2021 with my master's degree in English Literature. My specialties are English, Government/Political Science, History, Essay Writing and Editing, Study Skills, Organization, AP Courses, College Preparation, and many others. I primarily work with students from 9th grade to 12th grade and college students, but I open to helping anyone! My career has taken many paths. I have primarily worked in Higher Education and I am working on applying for my Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration and Policy. I also spent time working in Washington D.C. for the U.S. House of Representatives so if I tutor you in Government/Political Science I have a lot of fun stories that will help you with the material. My dissertation focus for my master's was on Shakespeare so if you are struggling with complex writing in English I am happy to help you! Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Thank you!
