About James L

I have taught 10 years at the college and university level. I have also developed, owned, directed, and instructed my own vocational medical school with 19 campuses in two states. I an now substitute teaching for three school districts, (grades K through 12), any all of my students love me. My wife and I reared 32 children and we both loved children.

I lost my wife after 48 years together so I went back to my second love, teaching. I am a very capable instructor in a wide variety of subjects and have a knack of being able to make even the most difficult subject understandable and interesting. I am most effective in two to three hour sessions, (long enough to develop the subject but short enough to avoid becoming tiring). I employ multiple teaching techniques, (even employing "magic tricks" to develop the child's interest). I often start out a class with a simple trick to get the student's attention and then tell the students that I will show them a better trick at the end of class if they will really apply themselves, (I am known as "Mr. Magic" in three school district and teachers ask for me by name to "sub" for their students). I work well with parents and I accept critiquing readily in order to meet the child's and parent's needs. I look forward to working with you.

I am trained in multiple scientific disciplines and I know and love science and have the talent of bringing the subject alive and making it interesting.

If your objective is to really develop an interest and understanding in the subject you are having difficulty, then I can help you not only pass the subject, but also achieve a quality grade. The hours that I am available are quite flexible and you will get the best value for your tutoring dollar by choosing my services.
