About JAMES

***Currently Unavailable Due to Prep for Comprehensive Exams***

For the past year, I have been working as a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tutor while attending the University of Buffalo as a PhD student. In this role I have been 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.
