About James

I started teaching friends of mine business math and they in turn told their friends that they were pleased with how much (and how quickly) they learned from me. I taught all ages, from children to senior citizens. My strength is in teaching arithmetic (especially solving word problems), but I can also tutor in algebra, geometry and trigonometry.

For over three years in Philadelphia, Pa. I taught "English as a Second Language" to classes of 30 to 35 adults: a 90 hour course over a 15-week period, six hours per week. My students were adults in their 20's and 30's. There were tapes (audio only) and a textbook to accompany the course, homework assignments, and tests. Usually over 90% of the students passed the course (I taught the intermediate level) and were approved to enroll in the next (and last) level (advanced).

Here in Brunswick I began a course in using English to help the Mexican members of my church and wrote a 150-page book of instruction in using English in everyday situations (shopping, health-care, obtaining information, etc.).I also gave one-to-one instruction regularly to a few Mexicans and other Latin Americans--mostly helping them with their English writing skills.
