About the lesson

My name is James Kennedy, I graduated as Valedictorian at Campbell County High School and graduated on the Dean's List at East Tennessee State University. While in college I served as the Campus Student Ambassador, was in charge of the tutoring program for the students who needed assistance in areas they were having issues with, and also worked for Club-Z tutoring(and still do) to assist children in foster homes(listening to them so I could help bring their grades up. In all of my tutoring/mentoring sessions the first meeting was to develop a lesson structure for each individual student. Some of the methods that I used ranged from using flash cards, to creating online quizzes, refreshing the students on the basics to catch them up where they needed to be in school. It would be difficult to list all of the methods because I used so many depending on the needs of the individual student. In the 5 years that I have been tutoring college students or foster children, I have experienced many different situations, but adapt very quickly to the needs of the person that was being tutored.

About James

I have been giving lessons for over five years and have taught from 1 to 40 students at a time. The students that I have worked with had improved at-least one letter grade, but most of them either graduated with their diploma in High School(90%) and attended college. The students I worked with at the university were very successful and just needed help finding a study plan or needed help dealing with test anxiety to graduate.
