About James

I work with students preparing to take the GED examination. I excel working with the subjects of Language Arts and Reading, History, and American Government. I hold a Master's in Technical Education from the University of Akron. My program held a specialization of incorporating today's technology into instruction. I enjoy having the opportunity to work with students as a class but also enjoy the opportunities to work one-on-one with my students. My undergraduate degree was in Sociology. A considerable amount of my work experience has been in the social services area working with individuals with developmental disabilities and mental illnesses.

My approach to teaching does not allow my students to believe anything other than they can master their subject matter utilizing learning techniques of reading, reciting, and writing. I have found that this provides the learning reinforcement students need to master any subject. I emphasize this because it is how I learned and mastered my coursework in college and see it work for my current students in the classroom. I encourage students to critically think about their subjects. This entails going beyond the surface of the subject. Students are encouraged to analyze material and approach information from different perspectives.
