My name is James and I have a great variety of knowledge of many subjects including computers, English, writing, electronics, religion (Christian) and real estate (California). I have more than 20 years in tutoring experience with all ages being tutored. My tutoring approach is simple: discover where the student is having difficulties, make necessary corrections, and implement changes.
I hold a Certificate in Behavioral Consulting and am trained in learning behavioral studies. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. I have worked as a counselor and consultant to a diverse population of people. I am trained to tutor individuals at all levels of education.
Having been a lifelong student and the holder of five college degrees, I know the rigors that are present in our scholastic system. Because of the competitiveness of most schools, it is increasingly difficult to compete against other students for the best grades. I can help you to overcome mental blocks to learning with special, simple to remember rules and mental tricks so you will get more done in less time.
It is my honor to help you.
There are eight different areas tested for in the ASVAB exam. I perform a diagnostic test first to determine where the student is at BEFORE jumping into to the process of re-learning. This exhibits faster and more long lasting results than with out it.
I am former military and have a great deal of experience with these subject areas. You can rest assured that the student will be up to speed in a short period of time.
I have attended 5 different colleges all with outstanding grades. I have worked with a multitude of college counselors to get the right classes and tests for my degree programs. The college preparation process is one that is critical if you want the right school and degree program. Pre-testing is necessary for proper entry to the school and will give the student a boost off the starting line to make for a smooth transition into the school and throughout the program. Working with a counselor before the enrollment process is mandatory to plan out each semester (quarter) to make sure the classes are there and the proper support is there too. Having a plan "B" is good too in case of changes by the college/university. I have lot's of experience in all of this and can help any student prepare for the entry in to any college/university.
I have had over 40 years experience as an active photographer. I have extensive darkroom experience before the digital age and I have many photos that are professional quality.
Special need is learning disabilities such as ADD or ADHD. It is important to do a assessment of the essential functioning of the individual, basic comprehension and hand eye coordination, the ability to pay attention enough to concentrate on the subject, etc. Speech impairment is a special need requiring the tutor/instructor to re-teach or teach for the first time how to form words, how to talk basically. Dyslexia can be diagnosed by having the individual read a paragraph from a book. I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling and have hundreds of hours of experience counseling individuals with and without special needs.
This type of work is rewarding to me. I take the time and patience to make sure every step is done with care and make sure the subject is capable of receiving it before moving on. Special needs students need a lot of love and encouragement. This is one of my specialties.
