About James


Bio

Being born in Sao Paulo Brazil and the son of an Irish lady and an American Veteran from WWII I started my civil engineering university course at University of Sao Paulo and graduated at the University of Amazon, Brazil. I taught ESL (English as a Second Language) and math in Brazil for over 30 years. Being a U.S. citizen I moved to America in 2005 and got certified as a math teacher for grades 8-12 in 2009. I have been teaching geometry, algebra and math models at Justin Ford Kimball High...

Being born in Sao Paulo Brazil and the son of an Irish lady and an American Veteran from WWII I started my civil engineering university course at University of Sao Paulo and graduated at the University of Amazon, Brazil. I taught ESL (English as a Second Language) and math in Brazil for over 30 years. Being a U.S. citizen I moved to America in 2005 and got certified as a math teacher for grades 8-12 in 2009. I have been teaching geometry, algebra and math models at Justin Ford Kimball High School (Dallas ISD) since 2008. As I lived in many different locations with a such diversity of cultural values made me a very understanding and comprehensive teacher for a broad variety of students' profiles. Learning demands patience, understanding of the topic presented and practice. Lots of practice: after a guided practice, I introduce an independent practice, then I select a group of questions to target the most different levels of difficulty for the student(s)to practice as homework and then I provide a quiz to verify if the student(s) mastered the topic taught or the SE.(SE-student expectation). Here I introduce the techniques for taking tests and/or solve problems: underline the keywords, change a word problem into a picture problem, work backwards and so on. While moving from topic to topic I always revolve the topics to keep students memory of what was taught, linking when it is possible, every single topic.
