All of James’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about James’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in the State of Michigan. Although my certification is for grades 6-12, I have been working as a substitute teacher for nearly four years. I have routinely taught at the elementary level.

English

I am a highly qualified, State-certified English teacher for grades 6 through 12. I currently work as a substitute teacher in several districts, and a good deal of my time is spent in English classrooms.

Film

As part of my communications and theater arts teaching minor, I studied various types of films. I am especially well-qualified to discuss the developmental stages of film dramas, which is a key area of study for high-school and college film students. Moreover, I have continued to study films independently since earning my teaching certificate in 2010 and am well-versed in films of different era, from the silent era to the present.

Mechanical Engineering

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Kettering University in 1999. My weighted average grade was 91 on a 100-point scale (equivalent to an A- average). I also worked full time as a mechanical engineer most of the time from January 2000 - December 2008.

Public Speaking

I hold a current Michigan Provisional Teaching Certificate, and speech is one of my certified subjects (along with English and History).

Study Skills

"Study skills" is a very broad category, but as a State-certified teacher I believe I am well qualified. I have been working as a substitute teacher across all grade levels for the past two-and-a-half years (after earning my provisional certificate in the fall of 2010).

Theatre

I am a certified teacher, and one of my teaching minors was communication and theater arts. I have extensive college-level training in various aspects of theater. I have also performed in a number of college plays (as recently as 2010) and therefore have-first hand knowledge of theater productions.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
