About James

I am a second career teaching candidate that has been in the real world work force for over 30 years. Now that my three boys are grown, with the help of my wife, I have been able to obtain my college degree and my teaching certificate. I like my current job but I have so much more to offer the world than it allows me to give. I know I can teach and I know how to get through to adolescence.
I have coached a lot of sports and a lot of ages as my boys were growing up so I have been exposed to many socioeconomic kids and parents. I understand wanting to do anything to help your children improve but not having a lot of discretionary income. I may not have much tutoring experience, but I have a lot of excitement for teaching.

I majored in Communications or English for three years during my college career. I was a writer for my high school newspaper and an editor for two years. I understand the English language and have made it a priority in all three of my son's educational journey. Without a good grasp of the English language, making a resume or doing an interview becomes almost impossible.

I have recently finished the Ohio Department of Education teaching certification with an emphasis in History and over 30 hours of studies from the Ohio State University. History is my passion and teaching it seems like a natural process.

I am not the most educated, nor the more experienced, but I may be the perfect tutor for you and your student. I am new, I have new ideas and I am excited to get started.
