Hi! I'm James, and I have a love for mathematics. For two years, I was a mathematics tutor at Clackamas Community College. During that time I tutored many different types of students, and helped them become confident in the skills they obtained in pre-algebra, algebra, trigonometry, and geometry.

I believe that mathematics is a valuable and necessary skill that people are afraid of, neglect or find boring. I want to show people the math can be tangible, interesting, and even fun. My goal is to take the mystery out of math for you.

Currently, I am completing my Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Portland State University. My degree highlights the importance of mathematics in our lives. I want students to understand that math has valuable applications for us.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have been a mathematics tutor for over 2 years. During that time I helped people with Algebra 1 many times. As a Mechanical Engineering student I have used Algebra 1 almost everyday since it is such a foundation for all types of math, science and engineering fields. Algebra 1 is a exciting first step into the wondrous world of mathematics.

Algebra 2

I tutored Algebra 2 for over two years at Clackamas Community College. Over that period of time I was asked to lead several different study groups focused on Algebra 2. As an engineering student, I understand the need of mathematics in our everyday lives. I can help people bridge the gap to understanding Algebra 2.

Elementary Math

Elementary mathematics is incredibly important because it is the foundation that all the different types of math rest on. I have tutored mathematics for several years and as a teacher's assistant I had to explain this foundation many times. Because of this, Elementary mathematics is one of my strongest skills in the area of math.

Geometry

Geometry is an important field of mathematics. I learned to not just do geometry but to love it when I was a tutor and teacher's assistant during my early college studies. I have tutored students in geometry for more then two years, which has not diminished my enjoyment in this aspect of mathematics in any regard.

Prealgebra

I have been a mathematics tutor for over 2 years. During that time I helped people with prealgebra many times. As a Mechanical Engineering student I have used prealgebra almost everyday since it is such a foundation for all types of math, science and engineering fields. I was a teachers assistant at Clackamas Community College for prealgebra where I assisted in teaching and helping the students understand the techniques of mathematics.
