About James


Bio

In more than thirty years of teaching, I have taught every grade except kindergarten for an extended period. I am a retired missionary who has taught junior high school and high school Bible, English and History. That would include grammar, spelling and vocabulary, reading, literature, composition, World History, U.S. History, the U.S. Constitution, the life of Christ, and the book of Revelation. I am also proficient in math instruction up to and including Algebra One. I am most familiar...

In more than thirty years of teaching, I have taught every grade except kindergarten for an extended period. I am a retired missionary who has taught junior high school and high school Bible, English and History. That would include grammar, spelling and vocabulary, reading, literature, composition, World History, U.S. History, the U.S. Constitution, the life of Christ, and the book of Revelation. I am also proficient in math instruction up to and including Algebra One. I am most familiar with the Saxon math approach.

Nearly all of the alumni from our mission school in Brazil have gone on to complete four-year collegiate degrees. Two of my students asked me to help them apply to the United States Air Force Academy. They were accepted and went on to graduate, and both have entered the prestigious Air Force flight program. One of my other students matriculated at Notre Dame University and graduated this year with a degree in physics and photography.

For many years I gave therapy to learning disabled students who needed help with dyslexia or Attention Deficit Disorder. The Discovery Program is a different approach to the problems of disabilities in that it seeks to change the student's brain through a series of exercises.

I believe in hard work, and I believe in teaching a student to think.
