About Jim


Bio

I have been tutoring and writing for many years since I was undergraduate in English at UC Berkeley, where I tutored mainly student athletes. Shortly after that, I worked as a tutor at San Francisco State while I pursued a Graduate degree. What I enjoyed most about my tutoring experience was helping students find academic success, particularly students who had come from challenging situations.

Since then, I’ve been a writer working with some of the world’s best-known consumer brand...

I have been tutoring and writing for many years since I was undergraduate in English at UC Berkeley, where I tutored mainly student athletes. Shortly after that, I worked as a tutor at San Francisco State while I pursued a Graduate degree. What I enjoyed most about my tutoring experience was helping students find academic success, particularly students who had come from challenging situations.

Since then, I’ve been a writer working with some of the world’s best-known consumer brand companies and retailers. I’ve written everything from video scripts and Web content, to brochures, instruction manuals and Trade Show materials.
I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Speech Pathology at North Carolina Central and have been working at the Speaking and Writing Studio as a writing consultant. I work one-on-one with college students and lead student engagement sessions.

Enough about my experience though. Writing is a process and I am committed to helping each and every student find theirs! Here is my approach in a nutshell:

•I like to create a safe environment so that students feel comfortable to fully participate in activities and to freely express themselves

•I am more of a partner in learning rather than a teacher. I listen more than talk, carefully considering the thinking and expertise of my students

•My focus is on the students’ writing projects rather than my own agenda

•Finally, I love to learn, and a partnership creates learning on both sides. I try to model this love of learning in each meeting!
