About James

Hello I'm James! I am currently in college working on an undergraduate degree in accounting with hopes of pursuing a doctorate in forensic accounting. Throughout high school, I realized there is so much enjoyment in inspiring others by teaching and mentoring. I specialize in two areas of study: Math and Trumpet. I do everything I can to make learning the both subjects engaging and creative. Many students I have worked with have told me I created a foundation for them to stay motivated and improve.

For math, I make a commitment to teaching students so that they can easily have a full understanding of the subject. For many, mathematics can seem like a very confusing, complex subject that can be troubling to grasp. In my lessons, I relate math to real world concepts so that the subject is easier to understand as a whole. I have been very fortunate to tutor kids at various schools in my community during my Junior and Senior year of high school. This gave me the experience to understand what methods really stick with students. I mainly worked with individual people and small groups. Sometimes in math, students are strong in one area, but weak in others. I have the ability to work with students and help them build on weaknesses they might have with math.

For trumpet, I strive to give students a full understanding of how to approach trumpet and how to continue to improve. I teach specific exercises and fundamentals to improve, and I always encourage playing on their own. I am able to troubleshoot problems and adapt to student's specific weaknesses on the instrument. I have two years of prior experience tutoring individuals. I was fortunate enough to teach individuals and small group lessons at various middle/high schools in the region. During my junior and senior year of high school, I taught individuals on the weekends. These individuals were mainly those who started learning trumpet, or needed help in specific areas in learning. I taught a couple small groups at local high schools after school my senior year of high school. Most of these small groups were for high schools who didn't have the staff to create an after school activity. These small groups usually had a solid grasp on the trumpet, and the lesson were more advanced than strictly beginner lessons.

I have been applauded for my work teaching students in my community and working with individuals struggling with math. I have 3+ years of experience working through nearly every area of math from basic to advanced levels. I have always had an affinity for math and its concepts. I have received a departmental fine arts award for my efforts in teaching and playing trumpet in my community in high school. I have been playing the trumpet for 9 years. I have been tutoring for 3 years. I have a strong grasp on concepts in every area of trumpet playing. I have played notable performances in many different genres and settings.

I welcome any suggestions, resources, or comments that students can provide. I am easy to reach, and I am fast to communicate and respond. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!
