About James

I have many years of teaching and tutoring experience, gained through teaching at Kaplan, Berlitz and elsewhere. I am currently working towards a PhD at Princeton in literature. As an undergraduate, I studied German and Arabic Literature at the University of Chicago. I also took classes in Greek and Spanish and participated actively in the university's theatre groups and newspapers. After graduation, I taught at the University of Chicago's Laboratory School, a private school with a well-deserved reputation for excellence. In the following year, I lived in both Syria and Colombia and worked as a language teacher at Berlitz. In 2011, I enrolled in Princeton University's Ph.D. Program in Comparative Literature. Currently I am studying Spanish and German literature. In the last few years, I have assisted various professors as a teaching assistant, which has helped me sharpen my teaching skills. I am willing to tutor a range of subjects - from history, to writing skills, to social studies, to languages (Arabic, German, ESL and Spanish). I am looking for engaged students from elementary school to college. I guarantee significant improvement in my students' performance.

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.

Arabic

I studied classical Arabic for two years at the University of Chicago, as an undergraduate. I then spent 10 months in Syria improving my spoken and classical Arabic. I can tutor Modern Standard and Levantine Arabic.
