I write books as a hobby (5 published) and teach weekly in Eureka, California.

Methodology

The best way to learn is by doing it yourself, so I try to help when needed but not do it for you. I have traveled to Asia and Europe and Africa so I know the American way is not always the best way!

Background

I am a teacher and former librarian with decades of public speaking and publishing experience. I enjoy reading and writing and teaching! I am patient and calm in personality. I have been learning to use Zoom and Skype and similar online resources during teaching.

I know John as a Bible teacher and preacher and his knowledge of animals are exceptional. I highly recommend him as a tutor and teacher.

John has the qualities of a good teacher
1)Research and preparation- he is thoroughly prepared by presenting a broad view of his topic. He is likely to touch on points that others would over look. His love of learning is inspiring.2)Presentation- his approach is interesting and engaging. His skill as a writer comes across in his ability to tell a story and capture interest.
I would be very interested in taking a course from John.

I know John personally and professionally. I am the Salvation Army Chairperson in our town and John has preached alongside my husband who is a Chaplain and my Major who is a Pastor for our town's revival. John has proven in my experiences listening to him both preach Christ, as well as to advocate and educate regarding animal health and behaviors to be very skillful in his presentations. Often, he will employ his understanding of both Christianity and animals masterfully combined... totally engaging his congregation in his very comprehensive sermon.
