He has an undergraduate degree in psychology, biology, and Greek literature from Mount Allison University, where he learned that he thrives in interdisciplinary contexts.

At BrainBoost, he tutors biology, math, English, and humanities. In his spare time he has enjoyed taking part in creative writing communities with his friends. John is inspired by exploring literature with students, sharing his interest in Homer, Sappho, Sophocles, Robert Bly, Virginia Woolf, John Steinbeck, Richard Adams, as well as other writer’s. He’s also glad to teach or create projects about tesselations and mathematical art, video games, story games, ecology, psychology, and poetry.
