About Jim

I am a recovering attorney and recently retired middle school English teacher. I love to help students attain their writing and reading potential. Several of my students have introduced themselves to me years after being in my classroom and told me of their writing accomplishments.

My philosophy is fourfold: 1. Identify each student's needs. 2. Identify each student's level of ability. 3. Build an individual program for that student based on that information. 4. Let the student take it from there with my guidance and support.

In addition to teaching writing for a specific purpose, I am familiar with the creative side of writing. I have written six stage plays, one of which has been produced in four cities. I was present during performances of that play and watched as members of the audience were moved from laughter to tears in the space of fifty minutes. In summary I would like to help you reach your potential or simply get the highest grade you can on a specific writing assignment.

As an English teacher I am familiar with all aspects of the subject including grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, proofreading, vocabulary and pre-writing strategies including the use of graphic organizers and Cornell notes. I have also taught reading strategies and helped students improve from a level one and two to a level three and higher.

I love to talk with students about learning. Give me a call and feel free to ask any and all questions. I am here to help.
