About Jim

Hello all,

I am an adjunct professor at two local universities. I have an MS degree, have completed coursework in an MBA program, and I have undergraduate degrees in both Business Administration and Psychology. I have both classroom and online teaching and tutoring experience. My preference is to take a friendly approach and to have high expectations of myself. I take pride in building rapport with students and learning quickly about each student's learning style. I believe that there is no one approach that is best in all cases. Rather, it is important to listen carefully and to ask questions that will provide clues to what works for a particular student. I am most proud of my ability to adapt my "message" to meet students' needs and maximize their understanding. Most of all, I want learning to be a fun experience for the student. There is nothing better than to see the pride in a student who grasps a new concept and makes progress in his or her learning. I hope that I can be helpful to you!

I am most interested in tutoring in Business, Accounting, Psychology, Counseling, and Writing.

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.

Accounting

I am proficient in accounting principles and adept at explaining them in easy-to-understand terms.

Business

I hold a BS degree in Business Administration and have over 30 years business experience in all sizes of businesses. Most of my experience has been in management, up to the Senior Vice President level. I have also completed MBA coursework, but ultimately received my Masters Degree in Economic Crime Management, which included several business courses. I am also an adjunct professor at two universities, teaching graduate courses in the Masters of Accounting program at each school.

College Counseling

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and have been an adjunct professor for the past five years. I am skilled in working with students for college preparation and particularly in writing skills.

Proofreading

I am a college professor and am a skilled writer and proofreader that is happy to assist with any writing or proofreading projects you may have!

Psychology

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology as well as a passion for the field. I currently work and teach at the college level with subject matter that is multi-disciplinary and consistently draws on psychological principles. My teaching and tutoring approach is to focus on helping you understand concepts - the 'why' behind what you are learning. I believe that this best prepares you to then apply these principles.

Writing

As a business professional and adjunct professor, I have a great interest in improving the writing of students. The ability to communicate through the written word is so crucial to virtually any educational or career path.
