About Jim

Do you want to excel at passing, catching, tackling, sprinting, high jumping or weightlifting? I can show you how. You will learn how to set your personal goals, learn how to train, and win at the most important part, the mental part to achieve success.

At Virginia Tech I was a high jumper on the track team and in high school I was voted the "Athlete of the Year" by the coaches. I played football, track, and volleyball all four years in high school. I was the primary running back on offense and linebacker on defense. I have the trophy for the school's highest winning jump in the high jump. I worked really hard to achieve in sports and I can teach you to do the same. You will become the very best you can be.

Encouragement, discipline, perfecting the basics, and winning the mental battle are the four key areas of my coaching. I will show you how but you will have to do the work. I will use video, testimonials, workbooks, internet testing, outdoor training, and personal interaction. We will visit local schools to see their athletes in action.

You and I will have a lot of fun. It is fun to work hard, improve, and win. I will be by your side the whole way. You can count on me because I am going to enjoy getting to know you. We will form a bond. That bond will help propel you in your sport.

If you hire me, you are going to do very well in your chosen field. I will hold you accountable and we will get along great. I look forward to talking with you.

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.

Football

I played four years of football in high school and earned 2nd team all league honors. Quarterback, running back and cornerback were my positions. I have carefully observed football for 50 years. I know offenses and defenses. I know how to teach a quarterback to read the defenses and throw to the open receiver. I can teach a man how to defend against short and long passes.

Guitar

I have been playing the guitar for over forty years. At one time I was in a four piece band where we practiced 5 hours per week. My old church had a Sunday night service where I led worship with a guitar. There have been many groups over the years where I led the singing with the guitar. I can help the student play acoustic as well as electric. If he/she does not have the equipment and he wants to buy it, I can help him make an appropriate selection. If a student hires me, he is going to enjoy the lesson and practicing because he is going to succeed by making progress in the lessons.

Track & Field

I ran track at Virginia Tech as a high jumper. I did the high jump, 4x400 relay and discuss in four years in high school. I still own the school record in the high jump.
