About James

Hello students and parents. I too am a student, waiting to transfer to UCSB in the fall of 2014. In the meantime, I am looking to share my talents as a personal tutor.
I have shown proficiency as a tutor for Allan Hancock College in the subjects listed, particularly in English and Math.
Perhaps one of my biggest assets is that I am not a young student. I am a Senior who has retired in his fifties. So, I bring the tutoring skills along with life experiences.
My previous professions were as a restaurant owner and ship's Captain. Yes, I was a busy man.
I work well with young students, and I try to keep a sense of humor about me.
Please examine the list of courses I have been qualified to tutor, and contact me if I can be of assistance.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

I have three years of experience tutoring students on study skills at Allan Hancock College.

Voice (Music)

I have studied vocals with several coaches over many years. Jerry and Gene Russak were my first coaches. Their resumes are endless, including works on Broadway and The Music Academy of the West.

I also studied at Santa Barbara City College, performing in musicals such as "West Side Story" and other greats.

I have completed studies in classic and contemporary singing styles as well.
