About James

I have taught in primary and secondary schools for over 10 years. I have varied experiences with urban and suburban populations. Although I can teach large groups, individualized instruction has been a strength throughout my career.

I have taught 4th grade through 12th grade. I am fluent in Spanish and am an accomplished musician.

I look forward to assisting my clients with growth and development across all subject areas. I am committed, timely, and a great mentor.
