Hi, my name is Jim and I am a master level teacher, meaning I have earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico. I have 31 years of classroom experience, teaching both adolescents 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. With just a little care and concern one can soon begin to understand the topic(s) that he or she has chosen to study.
I 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 15 years to men in an incarcerated setting. I now tutor exclusively online with Wyzant, having the privilege of instructing students online from my home.
I am voracious reader and writer and I have a proofreading and tutorial 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 CBEST and GED exam. I especially enjoy working with ESL students write their essays into academically correct English.
I am a dynamic instructor with three decades of varied teaching experience who cares about a learners' well-being and success. I believe that all individuals are capable of learning, which takes time, energy, patience, and a great teacher, me(!), to bring academic success to fruition! Thank you for considering me for your online tutoring needs.
