About Jim

I am certified to teach English and Journalism in junior high and high school and, in fact, I've taught those subjects for several years at area high schools as well as broadcasting and broadcast journalism. I've written more than 1,500 newspaper stories and three books and I have no doubt that I can help any student, young or old, achieve his or her writing or academic goals.

Both my strong communication and writing skills, plus the fact that I am a certified teacher and have taught for many years, should make me an excellent tutor.

I'm looking forward to hearing from anyone who needs help in English, writing, literature or proofreading. Also, I have published three books. Do you have a future best-seller that you want me to help you with? I'll be glad to make that novel that you have in your head a reality!
