I have 3 years of experience teaching college classes and tutoring on all levels of math, science and writing.

I can tutor students in Physics(all branches), Algebra, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I can also help with Philosophy (help understanding it or help writing papers). I even helped one student pass his Logic class!

My top priority is to give students a conceptual understanding of the material (as opposed to rote memorization). I do this by asking the student questions to gauge their understanding, then giving advice or practice problems to personally address the material they don't understand. I also like to encourage them by pointing out the things they do understand. I believe in being personally friendly but intellectually demanding.

James went over what to practice and what to memorize. He knows multiple ways to explain concepts. He patiently helps you until you understand before he moves on to the next concept.

We were very happy to find James who is very knowledgeable in math and physics! He is very engaging and intuitive about how students learn. It is amazing how he explains difficult concepts with ease. He is very patient and is truly a gifted tutor!

James has been patient with my son and my son is loving math. What a change. When you like the subject, the grade improves. Thank you James

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have been using differential equations for the last 4 years of my Physics classes, and for 2 years in my research. Differential Equations forms the foundation of Quantum Mechanics, which is my primary area of study.

My specialty in Physics is Quantum Mechanics, which uses linear vector spaces, an advanced concept in Linear Algebra. Not only did I take a class in the basics of Linear Algebra as an undergrad, but I have been using the advanced concepts of linear vector spaces for the last three years in my Quantum Mechanics courses and research.
