About Jim


Bio

Hi, my name Jim D. I've been teaching English courses in Colorado continuously since 1986 at elementary, middle, high school and college levels and have coached tennis, track and volleyball. A military brat (Air Force), I lived all around the US -- and Korea -- then joined the Air Force (pilot and navigator training) after graduating college. My freshman year of college was at the US Air Force Academy, then I finished up my bachelor’s degree in English at the University of Northern Colorado,...

Hi, my name Jim D. I've been teaching English courses in Colorado continuously since 1986 at elementary, middle, high school and college levels and have coached tennis, track and volleyball. A military brat (Air Force), I lived all around the US -- and Korea -- then joined the Air Force (pilot and navigator training) after graduating college. My freshman year of college was at the US Air Force Academy, then I finished up my bachelor’s degree in English at the University of Northern Colorado, graduating in 1982, getting a professional teaching license in 1986, and earning a master’s degree in English in 1995. I love teaching because I appreciate all kinds of people and watching them succeed. I enjoy tennis, traveling, visiting my four children, going to the mountains and music concerts. I divorced after 23 years of marriage and am single.

Although I am an English major, I have taught a wide variety of courses over the decades, many outside my field of expertise. I began teaching college in 2002 and have taught for seven different colleges and universities in Colorado. Presently, I am an instructor at the Community College of Aurora and CollegeAmerica, where I teach English, Psychology of Motivation, Philosophy, Ethics, Psychology, US History, and Communications. I have tutored for every college I've worked for, and tutored for Wyzant years ago for a Chinese woman working on her PhD and a high school student needing help in English.

I can tutor anything directly or remotely related to English.

Feel free to contact me anytime. This summer -- 2019 -- I teach college classes in the evenings (6pm - 10pm) every weekday except Friday. I am available to tutor any other time and on weekends. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
