About C. James

I'm a full-time college professor teaching reading and writing. I have over 22-years of teaching and tutoring experience at the college level. I have tutored ACT and helped a student score 34 on the ACT and earn a full-ride college scholarship in 2016. Based on my education and teaching/tutoring experience (summarized below in the next two paragraphs), my goal is to maximize my students' learning potential and capability. For example, I employ the learning by discovery approach when tutoring students because this allows students to better understand the concepts and thus retain the knowledge the longest according to learning theory and research. Also, I have accumulated ACT/SAT test prep materials that are more useful and proven more successful than those available at Amazon, local bookstores, or test prep programs around Houston.

With 39 undergraduate credit hours in secondary education, I have a B.A. degree in English. My M.A. degree in English focuses on teaching Writing and ESOL. In 2003, I earned an M.Ed. degree in Educational Technology from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Before working at San Jacinto College, I taught at Southeast Missouri State University, St. Louis Community College, the University of Missouri-Columbia, and Southwestern Illinois College.

If you are interested in college scholarship, I can point you to the right direction from half or full tuition scholarship to full-ride scholarship. Also, transfer students can, for example, automatically receive over $16,000 scholarship per year with a 2.75 GPA for 12 college credits.

You may only need a one-hour tutorial session with me, and then you can fly on your own. However, if you need more help, I will provide the support you need to achieve you dream such as Ivy university, college scholarship, and transfer opportunities.

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.

Chinese

I am a native Chinese speaker who was born in China. Specifically, I received formal instruction in Chinese language and literature, and I am fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. Being a full-time college professor teaching English reading and writing, I have over 22 years of teaching/tutoring experience at the college level.

College Counseling

I am a full-time college professor. A part of my full-time job is to advise my college students regarding career plan, community college degree plan, university transfer plan, and university degree plan. In my counseling, I help my students work from their career choice to what degree and what college they should pursue. Many of my students enjoy my counseling as they called it "eye-opening." Many of them thanked me for helping them choose the right career and college because I helped them research their future income and job demand. Also, I helped students find scholarships, and one of them was awarded a full-ride scholarship by four different universities in 2016!
