About Jim

I have 14 years of classroom teaching experience. I have taught grades 3-6. My Master's degree is in math, science, and technology, with my favorite subject being math. I receive my biggest reward when a student has an "A-ha!" moment! This is one of the best feelings a person can experience, in my opinion.

I believe that all students with the desire to learn can do so. My experience has shown me that motivation can be the most important factor to a child's likelihood of learning new material. Therefore, I begin planning by getting to know the student first! In this way, I am better able to determine the type of instructional strategies that would be most effective for each learner.

I am certified for grades 1-6 and have experience with several reading programs, including Lexia and AIMSWEB. I have played, coached, and currently referee soccer. I am passionate about the sport and believe athletics are a great tool for teaching life skills, such as teamwork, perseverance, and goal setting. I played Division 3 in college, coached youth for more than 10 years for children up to age 16, and referee professionally.

I welcome your inquiries and look forward to assisting you to reach your personal goals.

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.

Soccer

I am a certified E-level soccer coach. I coached soccer for 10 years at the youth level from u-6 up to u-16. I have assisted at soccer camps. I am a United States Soccer Federation National Official. I have played soccer since I was able to walk.
