About James

My beginning in the world of tutoring and teaching was as a high school sophomore. I was blessed to be able to skip high school classes in the afternoons and travel to Wilson Elementary School where I would assist teaching third grade for a teacher who was battling cancer and unable to withstand a full day of class. It was there that I was later paired with a student with a very specific learning disability and gained a passion for helping those to whom learning is more difficult (but possible!).

In college I majored in both Psychology and Counseling, and as one of my practicum placements I was blessed to work at the Shedd Research Academy there in Mayfield, KY. Here I was privileged to work with children and youth who had different learning styles due to having dyslexia, ADD and/or ADHD. After I graduated I continued, though infrequently, to assist/tutor children who have different styles of learning in the greater Louisville, KY area.

I have since gained more academic and life-skills learning and have transitioned to the Atlanta, GA area where I hope to pursue this passion part-time!

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.

ADHD

My undergraduate degree in Psychology; as the practicum placements and work studies assigned to me for this degree completion; qualifies me to work with ADD/ADHD children and youth, and gave me first-hand knowledge of doing so through working at the Shedd Research Academy.

I worked at the Shedd Research Academy with children with ADD/ADHD and Dyslexia, assisting constructing models-of-learning and tutoring for their specific needs. My education and background with these populations qualifies me for tutoring of such individuals.

Baseball

I competed in high school and played recreationally in college. During high school I was elected to the traveling team for inter-state play as well. I played first base and pitcher.

Bible Studies

Educationally I have taken classes in Biblical Studies from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I have taught and "tutored" in this subject both within small churches and within the Pineal system of KY and LA. (Most specifically through chapel programs, the R-6 Program, and the Malachi Dad Vision.)
