About James

Hi, I'm James. I am certified to teach middle and high school social studies in Missouri and Kansas. Currently, I am working in the North Kansas City School District as a paraprofessional. I have worked as a teacher for the past four years, mostly in urban environments. I have also been a substitute teacher going back to 2005, while I was finishing my own education at the University of Missouri - Kansas City.

I developed a love of history early on in school and it was always my favorite subject to learn. I came to love to hear the stories of people and what we could learn from history and what others didn't learn from history. I pursued a degree in history and secondary education to learn on a deeper level and so I would have the knowledge to pass on to my students in my own classroom. My favorite subjects to cover are world history, sociology, and American history. I can also do some levels of math and science at the middle school level. I will also help you or your student learn organizational skills and how to develop research/analysis skills that they can apply to other things.

I am available most evenings of the week after 4pm, I can do some short notice tutoring during the week as well. I prefer to meet in public places such as libraries or somewhere like Panera/Starbucks.

I have done college work in world history topics (Rome, Greece, European History). I have taught all aspects of social studies including history, government, sociology, psychology, personal finance, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, so that I can help you stay on track or to catch up on a class.

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.

Social Studies

I achieved a Bachelor's degree in History in 2004 and used that to begin an education degree. I have worked with all grade levels and learning levels of students in my education career. I also enjoy furthering my knowledge of history by reading new theories on people and events in history.

World History

As I stated in my application, the majority of my coursework is in World History related areas. I have taken survey classes that covered many topics. I have also taken classes that covered one specific topic like Ancient Rome or Ancient Greece. I studied topics in British History as well, I wrote my undergrad thesis about an event in mid-sixteenth century England.
