About James

Hello, my name is Jim and I am excited to be back educating students again. My educational background is very diverse and it has prepared me for just about any situation. I am currently teaching computer literacy and mathematics in the classroom but I enjoy small groups and the one-on-one educational experience the most.

My teaching style is straight-forward and we will discuss your final goal and work toward that. I am confident that we can achieve whatever we want to; whether we are willing participants or not.

My students describe me as energetic and easy to understand. I can help with a huge range of subjects from math to history, and sports to computers and photography.

I know that some of us struggle with learning, and some of us struggle with exams. I can help with both situations. I am passionate about helping others and this enjoyment shows in my teaching.

I know “learning” can be boring, but I love to learn and I continue to do so. I let each student teach me something new also. If one knows s/he can “teach”, they I can teach them to learn.

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.

Chess

I can help you with piece movement, opening moves, strategies, and board management.

Desktop Publishing

I am a technical writer with many years in editing and layout of government proposals, newspapers, newsletters, brochures, and other marketing materials. I teach computer literacy as well and I can make a student at ease with hardware and software that they may not be familiar with.

Photography

I have been in landscape and architectural photography for over 30 years. I have extensive portrait experience and love to play with natural light.
I have a strong and creative eye and I can help you develop your inner sense and personal vision in your photography. I can help you learn your camera also.

Proofreading

I am a writer and editor.

Patient and knowledgable

I learned a lot about MS Word in a very short period of time, including how to create tables and add/edit footers and page numbers. I wish I had contacted Jim before starting my big project!
