I have a bachelor's degree in Business and an MBA in Finance and Accounting. Thoroughly trained in the quantitative skills, I have spent my career perfecting and teaching effective writing and presentation skills. While I am a full time businessman, my greatest satisfaction comes from tutoring my students on evenings and weekends. I have accrued hundreds of hours of tutoring experience covering nearly all subjects through the high school level, including two years of regularly scheduled GED tutoring and the successful tutoring of four grown children, one of whom was clinically diagnosed with ADHD. All have since made successful transitions to college and into professional careers.

The stress of struggling with demanding courses and tests can be overwhelming to students and families who may not know how to break the cycle of frustration. Many times, the only missing ingredient is the focus and encouragement that can be brought by an independent and experienced tutor who has been down the road before. My goal is to give my students the confidence and the skills they need to succeed. My hope is that, in this process, the students also discover the joy and fun of learning!

Absolutely terrific tutor Jim is one in a million. He worked with my son above and beyond what the ordinary tutor would do. He was always available and always encouraging, even when the student was less than optimistic. Jim is the reason my son was able to pull down some terrific grades in his college classes! ...
