About James

I have had many jobs in my life, but none so rewarding as instilling knowledge in those who seek it, especially when it is something they thought they could never comprehend. I got to practice this extensively as I progressed towards may bachelor's degree in social studies at WKU in semesters that involved observing classrooms at various grade levels before a semester as a student teacher at an alternative school. This included all social science subjects such as US History, World Civilizations, Economics and Political Science. But while these were what I taught, what I learned was how to adapt to various types of learners, much to the benefit of all involved.
Given the nature of my student teaching assignment, most learners were resistant, to say the least. But by adapting, interest was sparked and built upon, exceeding their expectations of themselves. I approach learning by establishing a pressure-free atmosphere to emphasize progress is beneficial to the learner as opposed to detrimental in the case of failure. I look forward to branching out to work with new learners so that we can share our mutual knowledge.

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.

Political Science

Achieved high grades in several courses in Political Science at the college level. During my time as a student teacher it was one of several subjects I taught to students at all high school levels. I usually begin orientation to Political Science as it pertains to the two extreme ends of the field in the individual voter and the head of state. These are usually the most familiar to the student. I have a bachelor's degree in social studies.
