I am currently an ELA-S Science teacher at West Early College which is part of DPS. This coming year will be my third year as teacher so I know not only what students need in the classroom, but exactly how to help them during one on one private lessons.

As a classical cellist expanding the cello in to contemporary bands/music atmospheres is a great hobby and a potential part-time job. If you are an intermediate/beginner cellist in need of private lessons please don't hesitate to get in touch. Additionally, tutoring high/middle school students in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, Physical Science or Spanish is also another great passion. James has tutored in these areas to multiple students for more than 10 years.

James has taken my son back to basics, so to speak. My son's previous teacher did not emphasize technique and he picked up some poor habits. James has been working with my son for only a few weeks and already the quality of his sound is much improved.
