Hello, my name is James.

I am a former high school teacher with degrees in English and English education and a passion for all things linguistic. My background includes working with students of all types and ability levels: from special needs to advanced placement. I love to help with writing, especially those tough-to-figure-out school essays. I also have experience working with beginning readers and basic literacy. Lastly, as a former debate coach and competitor, I am happy to help with any public speaking and oratorical tasks! When it comes to English, I can do it all.

I can't wait to hear from you!
Sincerely,

James
