About James

Teaching is my avocation and I enjoy sharing what I know with those looking to learn. I have over 30 years teaching computer and business courses at the college level as an adjunct professor. While I have never had any formal training as a teacher, I consistently receive high marks from my students for explaining complex concepts in an easy to understand way. My students also enjoy the way in which I reinforce most concepts with my real world experience.

As for my day job, I have spent most of my career as a business / computer consultant for both Fortune 500 as well as local companies. My job has literally taken me around the world.

I offer both face-to-face and online teaching experiences.

My teaching style is relaxed and informal.

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.

Fantastic Experience

James was wonderful to work with. He made it easy to set up our tutoring session. I was working under a deadline and James accomodated my schedule by working with me during his vacation. I had a follow up question after our session and he worked with me until I understood the concepts he taught. Excellent tutor. I highly recommend him.
