About James


Bio

I love to tutor and have Master's in Physics and Philosophy. I am very good at figuring out what it is that's hanging a student up and coming up with an approach to the material that allows the student to understand and master it. My motto is "If the student fails to learn, then I have failed to teach!" And I don't like to fail.

HTML

I have never taken a class in web-design -- I am completely self-taught. 90% of the web pages on the web could be as static pages (meaning they would look the same every time they were loaded regardless of who was loading them) using no more than a dozen basic html tags. CSS adds a great deal of customizability (_i.e._ allows these dozen tags to look different), but construction of basic web-pages using basic html can be mastered very, very quickly.
Macintosh,

Macintosh

I have been using Macs since the early 1990's, and intimately familiar with both OS <9 and OS 10.x. While a graduate student in Experimenatal High Energy Physics student at KU, I managed a network of Macs and installed Yellow Dog LINUX on Macs running Mac OS 9.x before we replaced these older Macs with Macs running OS 10.x. I also managed a network of Macs at Sager Dental when I was doing web design work there, where I performed wide variety of IT consulting tasks – researched and recommended technology to meet company needs, e.g. data backup, teleconferencing, personnel training regarding Mac OS 9.x and 10.x and Mac software. I purchased, installed, and integrated new Mac hard/software (computers and peripherals), performed Mac desktop support (hardware and software) when necessary. I also installed Mac hard/software and arranged for several VOIP, IP video, conferences between Manhattan KS, WI, FL, Germeny and Switzerland;
PHP,

PHP

As a web designer, a number of my projects have required a database back end, and for a number of these projects I have used PHP as the interface language, in particular, the websites I designed for Kaiser Permanente and ISSIS Global have used PHP as the interface language. I have also used PHP as a pure scripting language for numerous projects.
SQL,

SQL

While teaching software engineers to "write better code faster" at Echostar (DishNetwork's harware spinoff company), I developed and taught an introductory course to SQL databases (including Oracle, MySQL, and yes, even MSSQL -- even talked very briefly about MS Access).
Web Design

Web Design

I have been an off and on web designer since 1994, having working both in industry (KSU, Sager Dental, Andax Industries, Kaiser Permanente and ISSISGlobal) and taking on numerous independent contract jobs and volunteer website design work, for example, at the Manhattan (KS) Emergency Shelter. For the last two years, I've paid the bills as a freelance web designer and you can see some of my work upon request. Additionally in my almost of my teaching jobs (KSU, KU, Bethany College, MSUD, and CU Denver), I have developed websites for my courses. I am an HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP guru, and can help you with just about any aspect of web-design.

I have an MS in Experimental High Energy Physics from KSU and completed all of the coursework necessary for a PhD at KU. I have taught physics as an adjunct at a number of colleges and universities in both Kansas and Colorado and tutored many, many students physics -- I can supply references, if you wish. My motto is: if the student fails to learn, then the teacher has failed to teach.

Knowledge and patient tutor!

James helped me with my PHP project that I was struggling with. My project consisted of HTML, CSS, MySQL, and PHP. James was able to help me tremendously that I was able to turn in my assignment on time. He is a patient tutor that is knowledgeable and eager to help you understand your struggling material. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

Excellent Practical Knowledge of UNIX Systems

I used James as a tutor for an introductory sys-admin course. I was supposed to write several scripts to manage my local machine and host. James' quality of service is exceptional. I hired him to spot me while I polished my code and verbalized my issues. He was very helpful without overriding the process. His practical knowledge of script languages and the line editor Emacs proved indispensable. James, thank you so much for your time and efforts. Regards, Chris

Just what I needed

James and I had more of a Q&A type meeting and he was able to instill a new confidence in my PHP coding. He answered all my questions and even pointed me to online martial that will help me outside of his lessons. Very happy with everything. Thank you.

Knowledgeable in Linux and very patient

I reached out to James for help with my Into to Linux homework. He not only knew all the answers but showed me a few extra tricks. We worked the homework together and explained each of the answers. I will definitely be contacting him in the future as I have 2 additional Linux classes after this one. THANKS!

Professional, knowledgeable and excellent communication!

Before I had my first lesson with James, I knew he was going to be great. He is open, responsive is genuinely interested in teaching and helping. James talked to me in a way that made our lesson much less stressful than other tutors I have had in the past. I will be checking in with before I search for any other tutor in the web development space (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP and others)

Helpful knowledge of physics and philosophy.

I needed feedback on an academic paper I'm working on that deals with physics and philosophy, and he was very helpful. The session over video-chat went smoothly.

Knowledgeable and thoughtful

He helped me work through a really long problem and taught me the fundamentals along the way. Really enjoyed the way he broke down the problem and made it simple to understand.

Great tutor

He was a very helpful and patient tutor. He went through the codes line by line and explained to me clearly. The session with him was very productive. If I have questions, I would contact him again.
