About Jimi


Bio

I am a laid-back U.S. Army veteran who was raised by a newspaper editor mother and soldier father. Upon leaving the service to continue my education, I pursued two undergraduate degrees at the University of North Carolina-Pembroke: a bachelor of science in mass communications as a Journalism major, and a bachelor of arts in philosophy and religion. I also hold a master of arts in religion from the University of Florida where I specialized in Asian religions--although I have a broad grounding...

I am a laid-back U.S. Army veteran who was raised by a newspaper editor mother and soldier father. Upon leaving the service to continue my education, I pursued two undergraduate degrees at the University of North Carolina-Pembroke: a bachelor of science in mass communications as a Journalism major, and a bachelor of arts in philosophy and religion. I also hold a master of arts in religion from the University of Florida where I specialized in Asian religions--although I have a broad grounding in all major world religions--and I engaged in four years of study as a Ph.D. student at the same university before leaving academia in order to care for an ailing family member.

I have taught numerous courses on religion and mythology, and I have also worked as a professional copy editor. Although I do enjoy lecturing, I prefer one-on-one teaching and tutoring experiences, as they provide for a higher quality of engagement for the student since I am better able to cater my instruction to the student's individual needs.

I live with my artist wife and two cats of in a modest cottage in Raeford, North Carolina, where I enjoy trail biking, reading (mostly nonfiction), writing, cooking, playing mountain dulcimer and ukulele, and catching live music gigs.

I grew up learning to write, edit, and proofread from my newspaper editor mother, later earning a bachelor of science in mass communications (a journalism degree with additional communications theory courses) from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I have roughly six years' experience as a copy editor and am well-versed in M.L.A., Chicago/Turabian, A.P.A., and Associated Press styles. I also have six years' experience teaching in a university setting, have taught middle-school-aged students, and currently tutor community college students part time.

I hold a bachelor of arts in religion and philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and master of arts in religion from the University of Florida, plus I completed three years of Ph.D. coursework in religion at the University of Florida as well. I have six years' experience teaching religion in a university setting, and I have taught mythology to middle-school-aged students as part of the Duke Talent Identification Program. I currently tutor community college students part time. I specialize in religions of Asia, although I am well-versed in world religions.

I prefer one-on-one teaching to lectures, and I encourage questions. If you are frustrated with lectures that lose you and don't provide enough time to question the material, I am a good match.

While my undergraduate BS is in mass communication, it is a journalism degree focused specifically on print journalism, in which I maintained a 4.0 GPA and edited a section of the university newspaper in addition to writing for three other newspapers. I have six years' experience teaching undergraduates, to include experience with one-on-one remedial instruction in English grammar and composition for paper writing, and I also taught a mythology course to middle-school-aged students which was focused strongly on literature and composition, to include journal-keeping and short-story writing. I am currently employed part-time as a tutor for Robeson [NC] Community College where I have been the go-to specialist in English, grammar, and composition/documentation/proofreading, and where I have provided tutoring instruction on par with that of the full-time English faculty. I also have provided professional copy editing and proofreading services to academic writers in the humanities and social sciences for the past six years.

History

Religion

Religion

I completed a bachelor of arts in philosophy and religion at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in 2006. I completed a master of arts in religion, specializing in religions of Asia, at the University of Florida in 2008. I completed PhD coursework majoring in Religions of Asia, and minoring in Religion and Nature/Ecology (including preliminary research in India) with Department of Religion, University of Florida, in 2013. I have two years' equivalency, each, in Sanskrit and Hindi. As a graduate student I taught for six years, either on my own, or as a teaching assistant providing a minimum of three hours a week per semester of teaching my own sections. I also taught mythology to middle school Indian students in Mysore, India, in summer 2013 and currently tutor part time in English, religion, and philosophy at a community college in southeast North Carolina.
