John Johnson grew up in various places due to his father's employment, with his earliest memories being of South Hill. He graduated from Roanoke Rapids High School before attending Southside Virginia Community College.
After earning his Associates of Arts and Sciences Degree in Liberal Arts from SVCC, John transferred to the University of Virginia, where he completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History.
John is currently a professional tutor at SVCC, mainly focusing on the subjects of Chemistry, Math and History. He plans on resuming his education in the near future to complete his Master's Degree or becoming a teacher.
John says, "My time at SVCC allowed me time to find myself. Also, the relationships that I developed with my instructors as a student helped me with my journey as a tutor... Do not be afraid to ask for help from your instructors, advisors, and tutors."
