About James

Dear Parent/Student:

My passion is partnering with parents to help students succeed both in the classroom and in the real world. I believe students learn best when information is presented in a way that is practical, applicable and engaging. I also believe that tutoring is not just for students who are struggling in a subject; but, it can be beneficial to any student who wants to reach his/her full potential. My approach to tutoring is the "apprentice method" which moves students through the following stages of learning and development: I do while you watch; I do while you help; you do while I help; and you do while I watch.

My background includes a wide variety of classroom and real-world experience. I have over five years of experience in corporate training and ten years of experience working with middle and high school students in large group and small group settings. My undergrad degree is a BA in Theatre/Speech from the University of SC. I have a Master's in Ministry Leadership from Rockbridge Seminary and am a certified middle level ELA teacher currently working at Dutchman Creek Middle School in Rock Hill, SC.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have worked as a pastor in churches for 15 years. I have a master's in ministry leadership from Rockbridge Seminary. I have also been directly involved in church planting.

English

I won several awards, including the Presidential Award for Writing, during my educational career. I am a published author. My cognate from the University of SC is English. I also hold a certificate from ABCTE qualifying me for certification in English and language arts.

GED

I have over five years of experience in adult education and corporate training. My background in the classroom and in the workplace gives me the ability to provide practical applications for the information presented. I recently finished a one-year certification program in five months, because I am a strong test-taker and know what it takes to successfully study for an exam.

Proofreading

As a corporate trainer, I wrote and proofread multiple manuals and new business proposals. I also hold a certificate from ABCTE qualifying me for certification in English and language arts.

Public Speaking

As a pastor, I have over 10 years of experience speaking in front of audiences ranging in size from 15 to 1500. I have also spoken at national conferences. As a teacher, I speak in front of small crowds on a daily basis. My undergrad degree in Theatre included performance as well as public speaking.

Theatre

My undergrad degree is a bachelor of arts in theatre. I have over five years of experience in community theatre both on stage and behind the curtain including performance, set design and directing. I also have over three years experience in event production in a venue that seats 1500.

Writing

I am certified to teach English Language Arts for grades 6-8 in the state of South Carolina. I am currently in my second year teaching, have completed Induction, and I am beginning SAFE-T. Last year I taught ELA to ESOL students in grades 9-12 at Gaffney High School.
