About James

I am currently an Instructional Assistant with Escondido School District. I have work with the District for 3 years. Prior to coming to Escondido, I was a Commander in a Sheriff's Office and a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves. I have a vast amount of experience working with young people from teaching/tutoring elementary and middle school to coaching athletics and counseling students on courses of actions for future career choices.

I have an easy going and calm personality and believe that we should never accept anything less than excellence in everything we do. That is not always easy and it is not always the smartest that are successful, but those who strive for excellence and apply themselves unrelentingly to goal achievement.

Math has always been my strongest subject. While in college, I contemplated on becoming a math major and went as far as a semester in Calculus. Over the years I have taken several tests like the ACT Math. You don't always have time to write down your computations and must to the work in your head. I can help develop strategies to mentally solve problems without having to use scratch paper.

Learning to problem solve at a young age by using the strategies to solve math problems will help you in everything that you do during your school years. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become the best math student in your class and possibly in your school.
