About James

I graduated from Chicago State University with Cum Laude Honors in 2013. Since then, I have become a full time middle school English/ Language Arts teacher. I'm located in Crown Point, Indiana and am willing to commute for tutoring. My passion is reading and writing and I love to work with kids! I believe that education and tutoring should be a fun experience that a child looks forward to. I take time to get to know each student and try my best to make sure they are comfortable throughout the whole session. I want my students to laugh and have fun while achieving academic success at the same time.

I encourage my students to take risks while learning and provide them with real world skills that they can use in other subjects as well. I want my students to gain a set of skills that allows them to solve the problems they are encountering, rather than teaching them how to simply learn to read or write. My students are better prepared for school work and standardized testing as a result of this judgment free space as well.

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.

Baseball

I played 5 years of Division 1 college baseball. I was an assistant coach last season at Purdue University Calumet. I am now the Junior Varsity head coach at Crown Point High School.

Literature

I am currently an English/Language Arts teacher at St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point. I am in my second year of teaching. We read 3 novels per year in each grade and it's one of my favorite areas to teach. I graduated with an English/Secondary Education degree from Chicago State University where I earned the Wilbur Hatfield award for excellence in teaching English.
