About JAMES

My name is James. I have an MA in American History. I have written many term papers as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. As a History Major, my writing and English skills had to remain sharp in order to complete the many writing assignments necessary for graduation. Critical thinking was a must, as was the ability to organize information. I have served as an Assistant Professor at Cal State University East Bay, where I received my MA, and at De Anza College in Cupertino. Acceptance into Graduate School required several letters of recommendation from members of the faculty. As an Assistant Professor going over grades with students was a must, and this required excellent communication skills. The skills that I used as a student and as an Assistant Professor translate very well to working with students of all ages. I look forward to using these skills to encourage young students to develop their skills into becoming future leaders in the community.

Passed highest level of required college math (statistics) and had to do significant amount of analysis in writing history term papers, much of which required significant math skills.

Have taken several courses which explore history of science, which includes astronomy. Done book report on a work that discusses changing ways that astronomy and other branches of science have changed over the past few centuries. This requires significant knowledge of astronomy and how it's applied to daily life.

Have written many term papers in which English skills are second nature. Graduate school requires students whose ability to understand works and report on them is mandatory.

MA in Colonial American History and former Assistant Professor in four American History Courses.

Several semesters of playing basketball, which required much teamwork. Few sports require working as a unit more than basketball.

I love working with people of all ages. Children and high school students are still deciding on their future, and I would love to encourage them to look into furthering their education, and possibly earning an advanced degree in someday. For those who might want to enter the workforce without earning an advanced degree, the skills that I can help cultivate will still be very helpful.

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.

English

Went as an undergraduate and graduate student with nothing less than a B in papers dealing with a variety of topics. The majority were History or Anthropology, but also included Philosophy and other general topics
Corrected and graded hundred of papers as a Graduate Assistant at CSU East Bay, and as a paid reader at De Anza College

GED

I am a High School, College, and University Graduate with an MA. I passed high school, college, and university courses in every field covered by GED Test. I worked with Junior College Students, many of whom had only recently received their GED.

Reading

I have written dozens of papers as an undergraduate and graduate student. The majority were in History, but also included a variety of other subjects, including Anthropology, Sociology, and Economics. I have graded hundreds of junior college and university level papers. The scores were based in large part on my ability to discern grammar problems. Explaining these problems to students was an important part of my job.
