About Jim

I am a late bloomer. I discovered my abilities after an injury forced me to give up construction and
I went to college to study science. While there I found have a gift for essay writing . I love to write and to read. I truly believe reading is at the core of good writing. While in college I tutored writing and English for the local community college. I taught middle school English for 5 years, and adult basic education for three years. I am also proficient in MLA and AP formatting.

My philosophy is everyone has a writer in them and any idea a person wants to write about is a good idea. I know the essay structure testing requires, however; I prefer to push students beyond basics allowing the student to grow. I teach buy having fun and digging into subjects. Learning is exciting and fun, so lets go have some fun.

I graduated with distinction from my university with a 3.79 GPA. I also made the Deans list my last two years of my education. My GPA for my writing and English classes was a 4.0. I tutored throughout my college career and for a few years afterwards.

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.

English
