Focused, Motivating, Knowledgeable

Hi! I’m John! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Houston- Downtown and a Masters in Sociology, focusing on film and media from the University of Houston. I have had experience working with university aged students on intensive writing, specifically scientific writing, research design, proposals, and analytical writing techniques. Through my experiences in education, I have learned that not everyone learns in the same way. Through coaching, I hope to not only shed light on the diversity of human beings and how they learn, but also to learn better strategies for understanding and adapting to the needs of different students. I look forward to working with students to help them not only with subject tutoring, but to teach the crucial life skills that are not available in the classroom and  are oftentimes crucial for future success.
