I am a retired teacher and school administrator. I have worked as a professional educator throughout my career and I have 35+ years of experience teaching languages (French), and ESL including accent reduction training. I have worked successfully with students of all ages, from Kindergarten through adults at the university and corporate level. I have taught test preparation (ACT and SAT), business courses, as well as courses in leadership and management. In addition to teaching many academic subjects, I have also taught chess to students in grades K-8.

I love working one on one with students and I approach each student as an individual with specific needs. Therefore, I will always tailor each and every tutoring session based on the need of each student. I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in education, and much more coursework beyond the master's degree.

Please contact me, and I will do my best to assist you with your learning needs.

Great Chess Lessons

I have know James for several years at our local Parma Chess club. I did not know that James taught chess. The first thing we did was to play a game of chess to review my strength and weakness. He attempted to teach me how to count the pieces on the board and what pieces were under attack. Where there other pieces protecting those pieces. Look for open files and diagonal for the rooks, bishops, Queen. Look for good moves and find a the best movie. Look for hanging pieces. Suggested playing live chess a move a day.
