About James

I have been in education since 1977, starting at Washington State University. I literally have worked at every level of education from kindergarten to college. I have been primarily a school counselor, however for the past five years I been a one-on-one tutor. I have many interests and multiple experiences. I have (humbly) a wealth of knowledge and the desire to share. I view myself as someone who wants to serve.

I consider myself to be a straightforward hands-on kind of teacher/tutor. In that, the student has a task to complete or a goal to reach, I work with them as a guide, a facilitator. I want the student to explore their options and make choices on their own. I see myself as coach and reliever, stepping in when appropriate and/or necessary. I realize that direct instruction is needed at times. I encourage self directed learning knowing full well that part of that self-direction is knowing when and how to ask for assistance.
