About James

For the past three years, I have been working in Connecticut as a teacher. I have worked as both a long and short-term substitute. In addition, I have worked as an academic interventionist- helping students in individual and small-group settings to improve their reading and math scores. I am skilled at working with students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and academic levels. I am certified in Connecticut for elementary education.
I truly love tailoring my lessons to match my students' individual needs and learning styles. I believe in presenting information in a variety of ways- using visuals, activities and games as well as traditional verbal instruction.

I have an excellent grasp of the rules of grammar and how to communicate them to learners. I believe skillful communication is the cornerstone of success and am ready to enthusiastically share my knowledge and experience.

I have experience with the new Common Core standards. I have developed my lesson plans with the goal of meeting these standards and improving students' required skills.

I have taught in a variety of elementary classrooms, and am very aware of the skills necessary for success.

I am experienced in instructing students of all skill levels in phonics and have developed a wide variety of techniques to ensure success.

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.

Elementary Math

I have worked with several age groups to improve math scores, helping to reach both school goals as well as state and federal benchmarks. In addition, as an academic interventionist, I have worked with individuals and small groups using specially developed, personally tailored lesson plans.
