About James

I was in the air conditioning field for many years, and taught that subject at a Orange County vocational school in the evenings.

I was in the US Navy and Coast Guard for 21 years and was a leader and a teacher. I have also taught in my church.

I am very strong in English and social studies fields. I'm a student of history and enjoy reading.
My only prior actual tutoring experience was teaching my daughter when she needed help.

My teaching style is relaxed, and I want to help you with your self-confidence as well as the subject matter. This will help you become a better student.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

I started a mechanical contracting business from scratch in 1983 after several years of working closely with my mentor in a similar business. The business was successful and I sold it in 1988 to an employee.

After studying from others in the real estate business, I have bought real estate, and have written my own contract for selling real estate and provided financing for the buyer by holding a first mortgage. I have also successfully rented properties.

I studied business administration in college, but I found that the courses prepared someone for a middle management position in a large corporation, but not for how to start or run a small profitable business. To learn that, I learned from people that actually did it. I found that they were very helpful and taught me a lot that I have used in my ventures. I have always looked to professionals for their advice and help, never from a "jack of all trades" or "shady" people.

ESL/ESOL

I will be glad to help all people who want to live in the USA, with learning to speak, read and write English. I will help you pass exams as a part of your education. Or, I can help you progress in your career while you work for a business.

Part of learning English is learning the USA culture, because what is perceived as correct in one language may not translate the same in another language, even when the vocabulary is understood.

I have helped people from Cuba and Vietnam with their English skills, but I do not understand their language.
