About JAMES

For the last two semesters, I have been assisting students with their written assignments, applications, journal submissions, etc, at the Center for Excellence in Writing (CEW), while attending the University of Buffalo as a PhD student. The year before I worked as a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tutor. In this role, I was responsible for:

-Conducting tutoring sessions to assist student-athletes in completing assignments
-Assisting student-athletes in comprehension of each class assignment
-Utilizing syllabi to collaborate with student-athletes in formulating plans to complete tasks
-Preparing weekly reports to academic advisor in order to document progress for each task.

As an individual who is preparing to become a college professor, this experience has proven to be invaluable. I am learning how to adjust teaching strategies to fit learning styles of each student. To actively participate in a student's education, and then watch them succeed, is very rewarding and fulfilling.

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.

Basketball

I have been playing basketball since the age of 5. I was on the modified basketball team as a middle school student. I then went on to receive my varsity letter as a member of my high school's basketball team; where I played the point guard position. As a sophomore at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, I was a manager for the basketball team for a few months while they were coached by Bobby Knight. In addition to still playing basketball regularly, I am also an avid fan and rarely miss a chance to watch a game in my free time.

Reading

I recently worked with a 8 yr old in order to help her improve her reading and writing ability. As a result of my assistance, she improved and also has a new appreciation and joy for reading. Additionally, as an NCAA Tutor, I worked with a student athlete who had some issues in regards to reading. At the end of the semester, she showed much improvement in her reading skills, comprehension, and vocabulary.

Writing

I have been assisting individuals with their writing for the past few years. This has taken place on my own, as well as while working at the Writing Center on my college campus. Additionally, I am a third year PhD candidate, so I'm very adept at writing papers each semester. Additionally, I have also completed my Master's Thesis and Comprehensive Essays.
