About James


Bio

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.

Very knowledgeable and has a calm demeanor

James went over Ser and Estar for my Spanish session and that went well. James is helping me prepare for a final. This is my second session with him and that one on one help, drilling over and over makes you thinks and start to recall what you started to go over. James help is beneficial.

Patient and knowledgeable!

My daughter is a first year Spanish student who was having difficulties with grasping the material. I am thankful to have Mr. W. as a tutor for her, he has shown himself to be a positive and effective mentor/tutor/beacon who gets results quickly. My daughter immediately felt comfortable with Mr. W. which helped her comprehend and retain her Spanish lesson. I look forward to her continued growth!
