About Jim

Hi, my name is Jim and I am a master level teacher, meaning I have an earned M.A. In Elementary Education from a U.S. university. I have over 25 years of classroom experience teaching children and adults.

I enjoy helping students of all ages and learning levels develop a better understanding of their assignments and classes and I strive to see them become better learners and individuals.

I have taught elementary school for five years teaching a 4/5 grade classroom then I taught math for a year to sixth grade students. I then moved onto teaching GED classes for 14 years to adults in an incarcerated setting.

I am an avid reader and have a proofreading business named Write It Right! where I help individuals correct spelling and grammatical errors on their menus, websites and other written documents. I am fully capable of helping students study for and successfully pass the ACT English and Reading components. I also have helped numerous students study for and pass the CBEST exam.

I am a dynamic instructor with many years of varied teaching experiences that cares about a learners' well being and success. I believe that all individuals are capable of learning, it just takes time, energy, patience and a great teacher, me, to bring learning to fruition!
