About James

I have been a scientist/Biologist since elementary school. I chose to earn my first degree in Biology in the Pre-Medicine track because it was the most logical way to use my interest to help others. During those years I volunteered as a peer tutor for students that were struggling with Biology.

My second bachelors degree is in Nursing as it was a way to further my healthcare career while awaiting acceptance into Medical School. When I graduated from Nursing school, I realized that I wanted to explore it further and remained an acute care Nurse for thirteen years. During that time I realized that I loved to teach as much as I enjoyed taking care of people. This led me to enroll in graduate school and pursue a job teaching.

As of this moment I am working on my doctoral dissertation in Public Health with a focus on Epidemiology. The doctoral process has added to my skills and helped me to take my first teaching job. I spent a year and a half teaching students within an LPN program locally. This experience reinforced the fact that I love teaching and that I should be teaching in a Bachelors of Nursing program instead. Presumably when I do complete my dissertation and graduate, I will be able to find a BSN program that I can teach in. Regardless of the subject, I love helping people learn and understand so that they can apply their new knowledge to life and career. I tend to be holistic in what I teach and I often try to approach the subject in a way that uses what that person already understands.

I have earned a BSN in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry. I then earned a BSN in Nursing which encompasses may sciences. I also have taught several science courses for the LPN program that I was involved in. I am also a doctoral student in Public Health, working on my dissertation.

I love teaching and helping others understand. I look forward to helping you to do the best you can.

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.

Anatomy

I am a Biologist and a Nurse. I also was the Anatomy instructor for York County School of Technology's LPN program. I was a clinical nurse for 13 years. In order to do these things I need to have a good understanding of anatomy.

Nutrition

I was an instructor for the York County School of Technology LPN program. I taught Nutrition as it pertains to Nursing and patient education. As a nurse, a Biologist, and as a Doctoral Candidate in Public Health, understanding of Nutrition is important to health and healing.

Zoology

I have earned my bachelors of science degree in Biology, one course within that degree is Zoology. As a Doctoral Candidate in Public Health an understanding of many species from the smallest virus to parasites and wildlife can play a role in health. My dissertation involves the risk of Influenza infection of humans in contact with Feral swine. Understanding how these species and this viral disease interact is an understanding of Zoology as well as infectious disease and epidemiology.
