About James

I taught in NYC for 14 years as a High Social Studies teacher. If you live in NY, I will help you pass the NY Regents Exam for U.S. History or Global History. My class average was five points higher than the S.S. dept. average. I was voted Teacher of the Year in 2012 by my teaching peers.

I love to learn. I love to teach. Students make me laugh... and I also learn from them. I have found it important to make connections with the past to present day to help concepts to stick in the mind. I will help you prepare for the multiple choice questions, and help the student improve their essay writing skills to help him or her to achieve higher scores, to improve their confidence in the subject area and have some fun while doing.

I was a pastor in Queens for five years before becoming a teacher. I also served as the NYC director of the American Anti-Slavery Group, educating college classes, churches, television and radio programs about modern day slavery.

I have been a popular teacher with my peer and with most of my students. I look forward to helping your young person become a stronger student.

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.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies in NYC for 14 years teaching Global Studies & U.S. History. I am certified to teach 7-12 in NY State and in NJ. Google Jim Geist, West Milford & Teacher of the Year to view the article. Every time the test comes out in January, June, and in August, I take the Multiple Choice Section.
