About James


Bio

With a passion for languages I studied Spanish and French from high school through graduate studies, learning other languages on my own. I know what it takes to learn a language, overcome its difficulties and enjoy the benefits it can provide, both personally and professionally. Living and working in Mexico for 7 years, and working/traveling in Mexico and South America an additional 4 years has given me practical use of Spanish and an understanding of the Latin culture.

With a passion for languages I studied Spanish and French from high school through graduate studies, learning other languages on my own. I know what it takes to learn a language, overcome its difficulties and enjoy the benefits it can provide, both personally and professionally. Living and working in Mexico for 7 years, and working/traveling in Mexico and South America an additional 4 years has given me practical use of Spanish and an understanding of the Latin culture.

As a graduate student, I taught and tutored students in Spanish while working on my Masters. Living in Mexico afforded me the opportunity to tutor an executive and his family in Spanish, helping him to communicate more effectively with his peers, employees and within the business arena. It facilitated the family's ability to deal with everyday life in a foreign country.

For students, I will tailor the tutoring to their current studies, utilizing their books and providing other exercises and support material to help them in their weak points.

Amazing/ Very Interactive

James goes over entities of Spanish from the teacher's standpoint and tends to be very longing and precise about many of the activities that we do. We tend to work on material that my teacher gives rather than guessing out things and it tends to work out really well. The results show.

Very helpful and patient!

Jim is very very helpful - he increased the understanding of verb tenses in advanced college Spanish, and guided in improving vocabulary through sessions and other learning tools. With his background in teaching all ages, Jim knows the right technique with each age and stage of language, and so appreciated his flexibility. I highly recommend Jim!

Tutor responded:

Thank you Mary for your comments. Your son will do very well this summer, just tell him to be sure that if he begins to have doubts, do not wait to get help. Each lesson is a learning process and many get lost in not understanding the English equivalents when the exist. He is a very smart kid.

Works well with my soon

James works well with my son, he has improved tremendously with his Spanish since working with James. James is patient and makes sure he does not leave until he feels my son has a solid understanding of the objectives. I greatly appreciate him.
