For the aspiring student with a full-time life—job, family, and other obligations—taking online college courses can be the perfect way to pursue an education.

In the past five years, he has taught 1000's of students in over 150 classes, most of which were online, at three regionally accredited colleges and universities. In addition to teaching, Jim draws on his own experience earning over 200 credit-hours as a non-traditional student, culminating in two master's degrees, one of which was completed entirely online. Prior to teaching full-time, he worked for a university managing the day-to-day activities of a center for adult and graduate students working with students from application to graduation.
