About Jim

I am a proud product of our state's public school system having taught Social Studies for 15 years at the high school level. Undergraduate work was completed at James Madison University with a Bachelor of Science in Government and History. Graduate work was done through the American Military University with a degree in Military Studies -- Land Warfare, International Perspective. The focus of my graduate work was ancient Greece & Rome, along with the 20th Century’s World Wars and the Cold War Era.

My teaching endorsement was earned from George Mason University and I am a member and committee appointee of the national Association for Teacher Educators. I have substantial classroom and teaching experience, working with students from elementary age to 70! I am trained, and have trained fellow educators, in differentiated instruction, study preparation and organization, motivation, and multiple methods of assessment for learning. As a baseball enthusiast, life throws curveballs – I understand it and embrace it. As such, I consider myself a lifelong learner who benefits from every interaction with my students. I may assign homework, but always in manageable chunks, where time is meaningfully spent to advance learning and connections are made in a cross-curricular approach.


US/Va. History, World History, European History, US/Va. Government, Geography, Sociology, Cultural Anthropology

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.

Political Science

Bachelors Degree is a BS in Political Science. I passed necessary Va. Dept. of Education guidelines for earning certification to teach Social Studies, including US/Va. Govt. at the HS level. Through teaching, and professional development, my state teaching license remains active.

Social Studies

State teaching license obtained, via coursework and required testing by the Va. Dept. of Education, is for "History & Social Sciences." This leaves me eligible, and qualified, to teach any/all subjects within state Social Studies Departments, to include World History & Geography, US/Va. History, US/Va. Government, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology. I taught 15 years in HS and have since followed up, the last 9 years, instructing career switchers in their quest to become state licensed teachers. Within this role, I wrote our Social Studies Methods Module curriculum for those transitioning into this endorsement area.
