About Jimmy

For 15 years I've taught composition, literature, and creative writing at a local college (Northwest Mississippi Community College, Oxford campus). Along with teaching duties, I've been a newspaper columnist.

Also, I've written two books (copies of the latter are available at Square Books, Oxford), and have a third now being reviewed by a publisher. Stories from the second book were chosen as the basis of a proposed television series, for which a trailer was filmed that is now being marketed to potential vendors.

I'm outstanding at what I do for three reasons: I'm an excellent communicator who possesses a vast vocabulary; I'm an an excellent proofreader; I am extremely skilled in the areas of grammar and syntax.

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.

ACT English

My tutoring skills in this subject area derive from my ongoing college English teaching career, now in its sixteenth year. In addition, I am a published author (two books), and have been a weekly newspaper columnist for over ten years.

ACT Reading

As a magazine editor (Field Editor, Cotton Farming Magazine) I had to proofread submissions from freelancers, which honed my skills in the areas of grammar, syntax, editing, and reading fluidity. These skills have been further enhanced over the past 16 years, during which time I have been a college English instructor.

Anthropology

During undergraduate school, I earned a double major in anthropology, and between the Sophomore and Junior years and between the Junior and Senior years, I participated in Indian mound excavation at two different sites. As for tutoring ability, I have been a college teacher for 16 years, and am highly skilled in helping college students become more proficient in their studies.

Classics

For 15 years I've taught at a local college. During my ongoing college teaching career, I have always introduced western literature subjects I teach with an overview of the classics, and I emphasize to students that all western literature has its genesis in the classical literature of the Greek and Roman cultures.

Religion

As a child my mother taught me lessons from the Bible, and from this beginning I developed in intense interest in Bible scholarship. Furthermore, I have been fortunate to attend church where the pastors held advanced degrees in theology, and used this educational background to give sermons that were steeped in philosophy.
