Teaching people to read and to write in English is a passion of mine, I really love it! I am currently involved as a tutor in a volunteer Adult Literacy program in South San Francisco for 1 year now, and I absolutely enjoy working One-On-One with my students in their home, or in locations of their choosing where they are most comfortable. I am very flexible with my schedule, I am extremely patient, and I can accommodate evening or daytime learners. It is true that I am fairly new to the tutoring field, but I bring excellent verbal, written, and computer communication skills with me. I am a life long native of California where I have lived with my loving wife of 31 years, and in that time, we have raised our two beautiful daughters to become vibrant members of the community! I speak English fluently, and I have a firm grasp of English idioms and terminology that people use everyday. I love teaching, and with a motivated student I know there is nothing we can not achieve! I enjoy giving my students the full benefit of my skills when the student is active and engaged. I believe it is never too late to learn to read or write and become a full member of our engaged society. I also encourage my students to communicate with me via e-mail and I will answer lesson related questions anytime at no additional charge usually within 24 hours if not sooner.
I can meet students in their home, or in settings of their choosing such as a Library or Coffee Shop as long as the setting is a suitable learning environment.
I Hope to become more established as a tutor in the future, I invite and encourage you to call me for any of your learning needs in the San Francisco, or North Peninsula area.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to serve you in my own way, with a subject that I love!
Thanks for considering me as a possible tutor, it would be my honor to help you in any way that I can!

He is very patient, and a great tutor. Jim knows what I need. I definitely recommend Jim to everyone that needs help with English, reading comprehension, grammar, writing and other English areas.
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.
I am a California native, and I work with my students to get them to speak English more like native speakers. Currently I am working with a Vietnamese CEO in Hillsborough. I am very effective in breaking words down and using phonetics to get the student to the correct pronunciations.
