About James

My 24 years of experience as a teacher has created within me a passion and personal commitment to three things: fostering a positive learning environment for students with various backgrounds, maximizing individual student performance, and developing positive student-teacher relationships that enhance my ability to teach students important life-lessons.

While I enjoy teaching subjects such as Economics, Geography, and World History for students in grades 8 - 12, the subjects that I am most versed in are US History (including AP) and Government.

Beyond being well versed in these areas, I am a teacher that has always sought ways to help students become better thinkers and learners. Additionally, I have striven to find ways to use technology both to deliver material and to assist students with learning.

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.

Basketball

I have coached Varsity Girls' Basketball for 12 years, Varsity Boys' Basketball for 5 years, and have coached youth basketball.

Bible Studies

I have been an educator in christian schools for 24 years. While I never taught a Bible class during that time, I was often asked to lead small groups, speaks in chapels, speaking at retreats, etc.

Similarly, I have taught Sunday school, adult small groups, and have spoken in church, before youth groups, and at retreats.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have used Microsoft PowerPoint for over 15 years in many different applications.

Primarily, I have used them to assist with my presentations in traditional classrooms and before larger audiences.

Religion

In being a teacher in Christian Schools for over 24 years and being a Social Studies teacher (especially in Geography and World History), I have taught about the major religions typically comparing them with one another for years.

Soccer

I have coached Varsity Boys Soccer for 20 years, MS Boys Soccer for 3, and different Youth Soccer teams.
