About James

Hello,

My name is Jim. I have a tech startup that I am launching overseas, and am trying to supplement our income by tutoring.

My wife and I live in Conshohocken, which gives me access to the Main Line, Plymouth Meeting, and King of Prussia. My hours are fairly flexible, as I run my own online business.


I have a graduate degree in English and Comparative Literature in Translation (ECLT) from the American University, and graduated from Franklin & Marshall College with a B.A in English and Government. I have extensive experience teaching English as a second language (ESL) overseas for Berlitz and for both European and Middle Eastern universities, for which I can provide any necessary documentation or certificates. I loved my job as an ESL teacher and would love to have the opportunity to do so here again. I am available to teach a wide range of subjects. I speak German, French, and Arabic at advanced levels; especially German, which I used professionally for some time. I have a strong background in English but in terms of grammar and in understanding its rich literary history; I hope to one day pursue a doctorate in it. I am a member of Mensa International, a requirement of which is an aptitude and training in problems of logic, and feel comfortable helping students in elementary to high school math and algebra. I look forward to working with you or your child!!

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.

Arabic

I studied Arabic at the American University in Cairo and the American University in Beirut while living in the Middle East. Upon returning home, I successfully completed an advanced program at Middlebury College's prestigious Arabic program. I am qualified to teach the language in MSA and Egyptian Colloquial. Should further qualifications be required of me, please let me know.

I successfully completed Level 3 Advanced French at Middlebury College's French program in the summer of 2013, and have studied it since.

I am hoping to start working on my M.A in French either this summer or next.
