TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've had vast experience in teaching and tutoring, including teaching history and philosophy at a graduate level, mentoring college students, and college career prep with high school students. I've been a guest speaker at high school graduations, university assemblies, Rotary, camps, and conferences. I currently teach at two universities. I'll take every opportunity I can to help someone acquire knowledge and reach their goals.

We were very lucky to find James as our first tutor in English writing. He greatly helped our daughter in improving her writing skills and better expressing her thoughts on paper, and most importantly developing self-confidence. We're looking forward for more sessions with him.

James worked with me on a paper for a philosophy of machines course. James was knowledgeable about the topic and was able to offer concrete, helpful assistance with the argument as well as resources to help support the argument. I am very thankful for his assistance, and I will request him again as a tutor in the future.

James is a very knowledgeable and great tutor. He knows his material very well, within short notice of time he came very well prepared for the class and understood what my son needs and helped him effectively. After the session my son felt very confident of his essay. I would highly recommend working with James! And my son will be taking more classes from him.

James was able to help me for my essays to grad school. We looked over the essays and he suggested many helpful tips, including what would be a better fit for the prompt and what to omit.

James was very detailed and helpful in getting me started to write my research papers. I appreciate the time he takes to explain things to you and the suggestions he made to write an effective paper. Will definitely be using again.

The importance and difficulties Prepositional Phrases. I need to practice more to redevelop my old thinking writing muscles. Also, will begin work on structure, grammar, and expression.

James proved to be a super helpful English tutor! He is extremely knowledgeable and well versed in literary analysis. His assistance was a crucial element in helping me develop a good thesis statement. He did an excellent job at helping me weed out the complicated structure of an early English poem to put my thoughts into coherent statements.

I studied Bible research methods. James is knowledgeable, approachable, and friendly. I feel much more confident in what I am doing after just one hour with him.
- Mike Z. from Glendora, CA
My first session with James was a great experience. We went over my goals and desires with regards to Formal Logic and Islamic Thought. I had noticed upon discussing the kinds of sessions I would like to have for the two areas of interest, that James was more than willing to assist in a wide variety of areas and was quite flexible. Asking many questions regarding the material, I really appreciated James' effort in addressing any rough spots and points of clarification as they came up. I am looking forward to our next session. Thanks, James!

James and I worked on preparing for my GED testing. James is patient, knowledable and fun. I am looking forward to my next session.
- Carlo R. from San Dimas, CA
James is probably the best writing tutor I've ever had. He's very good at helping me put my thoughts down on paper and always explains why something needs to be edited before he has me change anything. I also really appreciate how willing he is to help me regardless of how long our session might take.
- Morgan M. from La Verne, CA
