Hi, my name is James. I'm from SF and Oakland but now live in Long Beach. I studied biochemistry and botany in college at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and then worked for several years in Major Industry Labs in and around the Bay Area. Academically speaking, I was pretty well rounded in school so, although I focused on science and math, I feel good about teaching English and reading comprehension. I love plants and animals especially cats. I grew up on punk, metal and glam rock. I love Motley Crue and Judas Priest. ..
Here is a little more information about my studies at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. I received a B.Sc. in both Biochemistry and Environmental Horticulture. I have academic or industrial experience in a diverse range of Organic Chemistry, Plant Biochemistry, Molecular Biology as well as the supplementary science and math that goes along with that. In addition I'm extremely well versed in Horticulture and both inorganic and organic crop techniques, which includes greenhouse, field and hydroponic crop production. I'm a big fan of permaculture and more importantly urban agriculture and aquaculture. Aside from my science skills I have work experience in business, hospitality and sales.
