About James

I have over twenty years experience as a tutor. During this time, I have taught anyone from small children to adults. My goal as a teacher is to help my students succeed in and simultaneously enjoy their field of study. If you want an easy-going and experienced teacher, I'm your man.

Spanish is a strong passion of mine. I've completed my Bachelor's Degree at LSU in Spanish, traveled to over 5 different Hispanic countries, and taught Highschool students to love the Spanish language. I've also been involved in efforts within our local Hispanic community, including holding church services in Spanish and translating for English Services.

Another passion of mine is MUSIC!
As an independent music artist, I have lots of experience with guitar and piano. I have written over 50 songs, which are written for guitar or piano. I have recorded 4 albums, one of which is featured on iTunes. I have also been teaching piano and guitar for over twenty years, which of course provides a wealth of vital experience as a music teacher.

Please contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you!
