About James

I majored in Secondary at USM and majored in English. I have spent the last 10 years training call center representatives. I have over 2 years experience in the school classrooms teaching from grade 5 and up as a substitute teacher. During my experiences as a substitute, I taught mostly math and English. All together, I have over 12 years experience as an instructor teaching various subjects to class ranging in age from 5-50.

I was raised in a military family. My family traveled across this nation and in Europe. My experiences growing have added to my diversity and given me many amazing encounters with both people and places. Often I will use some of those experiences in my lessons to enhance the lesson. I tell stories about some of my experiences and tie them into the lesson. This helps to grasp a higher level of attention and greatly increases retention of vital information presented in the lesson.
