Meet John Boonin
Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, John started acting in plays at an early age, performing in dozens of community theatre productions throughout his adolescence. Upon graduation from high school, John obtained a BFA from the prestigious New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
John then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actor; it was at this point that he discovered his passion for tutoring. John uses many of the skills he gained in acting school in his approach to tutoring. One of the keys to effective coaching is the ability to listen and to adapt to new and evolving situations. Communication is paramount, and he gets to know each of his students well in order to better cater his approach to their individual needs. Executive functioning skills like organization and time-management are among his specialties.
In his spare time, John enjoys traveling, listening to live music and playing basketball. He is delighted to be working with Academic Success.
