About Jim

I have taught my own children, two of which are college graduates and one is a Junior in homeschool with an honors GPA. My greatest tutoring strength for high school is American History and music (guitar and/or songwriting). I have been in business 30 years and most recently ran my own division of a global company. I am now a full time professor in marketing and logistics and have been an adjunct professor in the past as well, focusing on marketing and ecommerce. I can tutor in general business, marketing, logistics, and supply chain. Musically, I am proficient in songwriting and guitar (I was a musician and songwriter in the 80's in Nashville, TN) and can teach guitar method or general guitar playing in addition to songwriting.

My philosophy on tutoring is very simple: We meet, we understand where you are struggling and I work with you to bring the concepts alive so you can do more than pass a test. Depending on your need, we will likely need only a few sessions to get you where you need to be but I'm also happy to work with you as long as you feel you need. I also do career counseling / coaching at the same rate. Let me know how I can help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

I have previously tutored in American History and Civil War History. I have extensively read all major aspects of American History and have a strong working knowledge of the subject.

Bible Studies

I attended a Christian College that included bible curriculum (Old Testament and New Testament). I have served as a Youth Director and Taught Youth and College Bible Study (1983 - 1985). Additionally, I taught college and Career Bible Study, took Seminary level Old and New Testament (Audited classes, Southern Seminary, and have developed detailed Bible study materials for my churches in the past (Ecclesiastes, Gospels, and Acts).

I have a bachelor of business and computer systems from Belmont University. I have a Master's of Science in Management from National-Louis University (Evanston, IL taken in their Virginia Extension Campus). I have 30 years of business experience as an individual contributor up to a Senior VP / General Manager.

I am currently writing a book on developing career paths in the 21st century. I have held seminars on career development and career paths to college groups in the past. I have been a hiring manager for over 20 years.

Guitar

I have 40 years of experience playing guitar and bass. I attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN as a Music Business major initially where I worked in the music industry in studios and as a songwriter while studying business. I have played guitar on five or six professional recordings (minor works) and have released my own CD. I have played and lead music in Churches over the last 15 years. I have seven years of formal guitar training.

I have held positions in Product Management, Product Marketing, and Sales. I have been a General Manager of a $100M business that included my own sales and marketing staff. I have experience in promotion and brand management. I have been an adjunct professor in Marketing and ecommerce.

Music Theory

I have five years of formal music theory including classic theory and counterpoint. I also have been taught and have used the "Nashville" notation style of music theory.

Songwriting

I have been a songwriting since 1980. I attended Belmont University where I studied music business and songwriting for three years. I worked for Eddie Rabbit Music publishing in 1981 - 1982 evaluating songs for their music catalogue. I co-wrote with another person and we had a "first right of refusal" with Warner Music as an anticipation to become staff writers. I chose to change my major about six months later. I have written, produced, and released my own CD and have coached two other songwriters. I can help craft commercial music.
