I was recognized by my faculty peers for my teaching excellence with respect to tutoring undergraduate accounting & business majors during office hours.

I challenged students by emphasizing

"CRITICAL THINKING" techniques for CASE STUDY assignments
"PRACTICAL ADVICE" to improve study skills needed for academic success
"CURRENT EVENTS" relevant to course topics with business media sources

My professional work experience reflects tremendous diversity

International Public Accounting firms (including Arthur Andersen)
Private companies needing financial & managerial accounting expertise
Governmental agencies performing contractual accounting.

Dedication to lesson preparation as well as listening to students concerns over subject materials along with useful insights to help students better understand the relevant meaning of accounting principles in context of real world applications.

Accounting is a very challenging & unique subject when compared to most other undergraduate subjects since much responsibility lies with students to spend significant hours studying course materials & completing homework assignments outside contact time with faculty.

Discipline & Dedication are paramount for students to successfully gaining understanding & application of accounting principles & procedures in business.

Very dedicated to excellence delivering high quality tutoring.

James is Great!

We had a very intense midterm to prepare for in strategic financial management. James read through our material, made himself knowledgeable and came prepared to guide our understanding and help us receive understanding we were not grasping in our lectures.
