About James

Before a career in business, I taught secondary mathematics, including Algebra I, Algebra II/Trigonometry, and Geometry. I was certified to teach mathematics in the state of Tennessee, and although the certification lapsed due to a career change, I am still completely confident that I can be of assistance to students needing extra help with basic high school math.

In my professional career, I used Excel and PowerPoint to help in-house clients analyze their data and draw conclusions from the data. This experience extended over a 15 year period until retiring in 2008. I am interested in helping business professionals who need to improve their Excel or PowerPoint skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I taught high school math for five years at a college preparatory school in Memphis, Tennessee. Subjects included Algebra I and II, Trigonometry, and Geometry. I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics (summa cum laude) from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee.

Algebra 1

I taught algebra and trigonometry for 5 years at Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, Tennessee. My students represented a broad range of skill levels. I was certified to teach mathematics in the state of Tennessee.

Algebra 2

I taught, in particular, Algebra I, Geometry (Honors and standard), Algebra II and Trigonometry.

Geometry

I taught Geometry to both honors level groups and regular classes for four years. I taught in a private college preparatory high school in Memphis, Tennessee. The full curriculum one would expect in such classes was included: from basic geometric axioms and definition, logical constructs, plane and solid geometry theorems and proofs.

Microsoft Excel

I used Excel for over twenty years in business. Most of my activities involved downloading data files from legacy applications or databases to an Excel file, then creating one or more pivot tables over the Excel list. I also instructed other employees in the use of my pivot tables to enhance decision support.

Microsoft PowerPoint

For twenty years, I created PowerPoint presentations to inform upper level management and the company's board of directors about financial matters, business directions, and to persuade them to approve the purchase of a multimillion dollar computer system. My experience includes creating charts from Excel data, especially in selecting the best chart to provide the information. I used bullet point lists that are progressively revealed to keep audience from "reading" ahead and losing their attention.
