About James

I am available at least 5 days per week as a tutor for children, youth, adults, and seniors. I am very flexible with time and location. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, makeup sessions can be scheduled. In-person, online, and blending-of-the-two-methods sessions are available.

I have a doctor of medicine degree. My training emphasis is with family, natural, and academic medicine. For over 26 years I have been teaching at several institutions. These include post-grad school, graduate school, college, vocational college, high school, middle school, and elementary school. I have or am teaching and tutoring students of Medicine, Natural Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health, and Healthcare. The same applies to students using Microsoft Office (Outlook, Entourage, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). Various entrance exams are tutored. Some examples include NCLEX, TEAS, ASVAB, GMAT, GRE, and GED.

I provide an initial assessment and periodic assessments to tailor our tutoring session to you as an individual. I also provide group-tutoring sessions. Many students expressed joy in understanding difficult concepts while in my class and tutoring sessions. Students have told many of their friends and relatives to enroll with me. One nursing student for example stated she saved many hours and days of frustration after participating in my tutoring sessions. An NCLEX student said she was finally able to study according to her style of learning. I am challenged to be creative and up to date. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent teacher who will make a positive contribution to your learning.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you to do the best you can do in your studies. Contact me today and you will find yourself having less stress about how to learn your studies.

I urged the student to provide feedback. He did so. After reading the student's feedback I was surprised and disappointed. I was very flexible with our tutoring session and encouraged open communication. If he had indicated during the tutoring session a need for a different direction, it would have been provided. During our tutoring session I received several verbal confirmations from the student that the tutoring was satisfactory. For example he stated he was glad I was assisting in bringing previous Anatomy studies back to his memory. He also said he was glad I made hard concepts click within his mind. He stated that I (more than his current teacher) helped to make the details understandable. My preparation and presentation showed that we finished all of the material he requested in the time allotment he indicated. At the end of our lesson he excitedly stated he learned a lot more than what he previously learned.

I asked him to reconsider his feedback, and then edit his review and star rating of our tutoring session.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have training as a Medical Doctor. I have treated ADD/ADHD patients since over 20 years ago. I have also tutored ADD/ADHD students for the past 15 years. I have provided support to parents and teachers working with ADD/ADHD students.

Bible Studies

I am a avid student of the Bible since grade school. I have taken Bible lessons outside of school. One of my projects is putting Bible facts into charts, PowerPoint lessons, and audio recordings. I have taught and tutored Bible lessons for many decades. My Bible training includes elementary and college education.

College Counseling

I have learned from some of the best college counselors. I have taken this knowledge and used it to help young students. Being a teacher, I share my personal experience with what is needed to succeed. I am in contact with various college recruiters. The young student can feel comfortable with receiving solid college counseling.

Macintosh

I have used Macintosh machines for over 10 years. This includes several versions. I tutor students on the use of these. And I have provided insight to Macintosh sales and service personnel.

Pharmacology

I have over 15 years of classroom and work experience with Pharmacology. As a Medical Doctor, I use Pharmacology everyday in my medical, teaching, and tutoring profession. My training and learning consist of direct and indirect courses of Pharmacology at the undergraduate and graduate college levels. My teaching and tutoring experience consist of pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate classes. One tutoring method I use with Pharmacology is the use of a math framework. The student builds up his/her Pharmacology knowledge on a framework that is familiar to her/him. The familiar framework is math. One student dreaded Pharmacology. She did very well in the beginning with the math section. She was excited when she passed the class building on her math knowledge.

Photography

I am academically trained and self-taught in photography for over 40 years. I use film and digital products. I have worked at weddings, birthday celebrations, and other special functions. Young students have learned under me. I have taught and tutored at the high school and college level. My technique is to build on the knowledge and equipment a tutee already has. A student has great confidence when seeing the progress s/he is making.

Public Speaking

I teach a Professional Speaking and Business Communication course for the past 15 years. I have integrated parts of this course into other classes. I also have developed some unique Speaking courses.

Study Skills

During my pre-college, college, and graduate school years, I have learned the use of study skills. After graduation and during the next 15 years, I have work experience with the use of Study Skills. I have taught and am teaching pre-college, college, and graduate school students the use of study skills. One of my most successful techniques is called the Circle-of-Learning. Students introduce themselves to a chapter. Next the students learn in detail the chapter subject. Lastly the students review what they have learned. Students have improved their retention of the material significantly with this method. One student used this technique on the reading section of an exam and was excited that she went through the test without significant fears.

TEAS

I have a degree in Medicine. I have been teaching and tutoring Nursing students for over 15 years. I have also developed, reviewed, and researched Nursing subjects and Nursing education.
