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 30 years of classroom experience teaching both 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. 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 14 years to men in an incarcerated setting. Now, I work as a substitute teacher in a wide variety of classrooms, experiencing the education system from kindergarten to senior high school.
I am an avid 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 exam. I also have helped numerous students study for and pass other classroom exams.
I am a dynamic instructor with many years of varied teaching experiences who 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 academic success to fruition! Thank you for considering me for your online tutoring needs.

I can thoroughly assist a prospective CBEST student pass these ever important exams by emailing and then reviewing pertinent selected topics.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I like how Jim started the session by reading and solving the first couple problems with me. He then was patient as I read through the problems and solved them myself. He would stop me and correct my work before letting me continue on to prevent errors.

CBEST

He helps me to pass the chest. He is patient, efficient. This is my second time, I need to take more session before my exam. He has a large schedule all the week.

Tutor responded:

Dear Nathalie, thank you for polite and prompt feedback. It is challenge and a pleasure to work with a French speaking student like yourself. I can learn so much from a second language student like yourself!! I am not ever so busy during the week that I cannot fit in another session with you.

Jim is patient and is knowledgeable about the math concepts I am learning.

Jim is teaching me the CBEST Math concepts. I appreciate his patience with me and his skills on how to approach math problems. Jim appears to enjoy teaching math and making sure his students have an understanding of the various concepts attempted to learn. Also Jim is flexible with scheduling time, and ensures that he will do his best to be as flexible as his students need him be for the tutoring sessions.

My review on Jim

Jim helped me tremendously with developing more focus on answering the exam questions. He helped me add topic sentences to complete my supporting ideas for the thesis and to restate my thesis. He made suggestions to make my writing flow better and to make my writing stronger. I would recommend him to a student who needs help in preparing for a writing assignment or exam.

Great first session

Jim made my son feel very comfortable in his first session with him. My son usually takes a while to warm up to people, but after the session was done he said he really liked it. Looking forward to many more sessions moving forward.
