About James

My degrees are in business (Bachelor's in Marketing and Masters in Management Information Systems with specialization in Management Science) and included several Math and Statistics Classes, as well as 12 hours in Economics. I read and study History and Economics out of an interest in both fields. I am a published author (articles in magazines and company newsletters) and have done proofreading and editing for a writing club (online) (and won several writing competitions in it.) I have been a college Business and Economics teacher for over 5 years. I am also certified Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) in Excel 2013 and Word 2013. For over two years I published the campus newsletter in Microsoft Publisher, for which I wrote most of the content. I also have over 30 years experience in business including entrepreneurship and small business management, during which time I trained many managers and other employees in Management, Marketing, Accounting, Math and more.

I was Valedictorian of my high school class and often helped my friends and classmates to understand subjects, especially math. I scored the highest possible score on ACT math section and was in the top 1% on the ACT and SAT as well as the top 2% on the GMAT business graduate school admissions test. I tutored for the athletic department at Texas Tech while I was in graduate school.

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.

Very helpful tutor — James has helped me really understand accounting. I know how to do the problems before I go to class, which is very helpful since I used to not be good at it. He also is helping me understand finance. He is patient with me when I don't understand and finds new ways to explain it. One of the best tutors I've had! ...
