My name is James, and I am a new tutor to the Bay Area.
I graduated from the University of Delaware in December 2012 with my B.A. in Political Science, along with Minors in Psychology and English. After that, I moved to Santa Barbara County and worked as a Substitute Teacher for several school districts, filling in for all sorts of classes. As a sub, I made sure to take on assignments for subjects that I was versed in, so that I could assist students as much as possible.
I provide tutoring services in multiple subjects, ranging from core subjects such as Math and English to more advanced subjects such as Psychopathology and Constitutional Law. I also offer SAT prep tutoring, having scored 2000 the first (and only) time I took the test.
In terms of tutoring style, I am somewhat more 'hands-off', in that I will provide all the necessary tools for a pupil to succeed, but also allow space for him or her to work through the material at his or her own pace without fear of being constantly corrected. This, I believe, is how students learn the best.
I am fairly mobile, but please schedule as much in advance as possible, as I travel primarily via public transportation and either by bike or on foot.
