About James

I have had three GIS jobs and received a Bachelor in Geography and GIS minor. Plus, I've taken GIS courses in college and have working experience of it. Taking from what I learned in school, mostly GIS theory, to the more applicable GIS side which I create mapping application from scratch at work.

I've trained new interns in GIS while I was at school, and now being trained my current employer in GIS so I'm constantly learning new tools.

I can understand both side of teaching and being taught. I love helping people to solve problems and that's why GIS is so handy on helping different fields to solve problems like social science, finance, utilities and more.

On a personal note, I enjoy flipping data upside down with either spatial and static. And I played tennis.

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.

GIS

I've had three GIS jobs and received a Bachelor in Geography and GIS minor. I've taken GIS courses in college and have working experience of it.

Taking from what I learned in school, mostly GIS theory, to the more applicable GIS side which I create mapping application from scratch at work. ArcMap/Pro -> ArcGIS Online (web map) -> Web Application for clients to view or use it.

I can help you understand why theory and applicable GIS are equally important.

Tennis

Represented my country in junior tennis, played ITF and ITF Juniors circuit and won ITF junior tournaments, and played USTA extensively (winner of men's open singles and doubles previously).
