Writing books : 5 published non-fiction books, articles, skilled researcher, Eureka California

Methodology

The Socratic Method is great: asking you questions to get you thinking rather than just lecturing. Lecture is also good when it includes stories and history and examples of writing (not so boring). The best way to learn to write is to read and practice your own writing.

Background

I have Master's Degrees in Theology and Librarianship. I have taught on religion, ancient history, research, and animal welfare. I want you to succeed in writing. I have five published books on history and animals. I have written several novels but none are published yet.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $16/h

Details

If I must travel to the student(s) there will be some charge to cover time and gas.

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.

C
Cindy

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.
