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.

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.

Reviews

Patient and knowledgeable. Very helpful.

Jim was very patient and explained the material well to me. I was more able to understand from his end than from my textbook. He went over the lesson a few times as to how he got the specific total and formula.

Amanda, 2 lessons with Jim

Very helpful

Jim helped me with understanding the basics of financial statements, and gave good pointers for working on types of revenue and equity. Jim also went out of his way to show me how to use tricks with Excel that I had never seen before.

First rate tutor!

Jim worked with me to understand how bonds work as well as many other aspects of Financial Accounting. Jim is remarkably patient and personable, and makes complex topics easy to understand. His manner is easy-going and fun, and allows for both a highly productive session as well as a very enjoyable one. I look forward to working with Jim again next semester for Managerial Accounting. I can't recommend Jim strongly enough!
