About Jim

I love learning, and I want to make your learning experience as fun and easy as possible. A lot of teachers rely on repetition and boring busywork, but I believe that learning should be fun and interesting. Creativity is key, even for "uncreative" subjects like Math.

I'm a fun guy. I graduated from Carthage College in 2010 with a degree in Computer Science and a minor in Japanese. I spent my last semester abroad in Japan a tutored English while I was there. When I came home, I started fixing computers and tutoring high school students for a living. I'm also writing a fantasy book called Tales of Eudo the Wanderer, and I'm working on an animation project that teaches Japanese. I'm a little different from most tutors.

Test my skills with a no-risk First Hour. If you don't like me, I'll refund your money and we'll both go our separate ways. But I'm willing to bet that I can help with nearly any academic problem you might have.

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.

Writing

I love writing, especially creative writing. I have a blog where I post random thoughts every single day. I'm also writing a fantasy novel, currently at 40,000 words. I'm confident that I can teach you to write, too.
