Hello, I tutor Chemistry, Math, and Physics, and have done so for over 20 years. I have helped many students ranging from junior high school to graduate school with math and science. These can be daunting topics, but if you are willing to work hard, a good tutor can help you get past the sticking points and into full understanding of the material so that you can actually enjoy going to class and taking the tests.
I have a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry and run my own company while enjoying tutoring on the side. I have taught community college and tutored at the campus tutoring center for several years. WyzAnt has been a convenient way to get private students recently. My start-up company is starting to be profitable now, but tutoring is a great way to stay sharp, so I will continue helping as many student as I can. I have tutored high school chemistry, AP Chemistry, college chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics and math from pre-algebra to advanced calculus. I have experience tutoring statistics, and can help with spreadsheets and computer programming. I have helped students at all levels and abilities catch up and do better. Please e-mail me if you have any questions. Hello, I tutor Chemistry, Math, and Physics, and have done so for over 20 years.

James is a fantastic tutor who loves teaching. He is very knowledgeable and can teach math and science at any level. He is always easily accessible via phone or email and very flexible in terms of scheduling lessons. He is very honest and always goes the extra mile for his students. He even helped my younger son with his science Olympiad project.
My daughter's grades in both physics and geometry have improved with James as her tutor. She has shown more confidence in both subjects.
James is such a pleasure to work with. My son is very happy with his patience and immense knowledge of the subject.
James has been an excellent tutor. After the first meeting with him, my daughter understood the concepts much better and felt more confident in class.
James has been my son's tutor for the entire second semester of his Physics class. He is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. He works with my son on homework, test preparation, lab write-ups. He is extremely good at explaining various concepts, and he fills in the gaps of concepts omitted by my son's teacher. When my son has questions that branch off into other areas of math or science, James keeps my son on task but always takes time to return to those questions and answer them, too, before the end of the lesson. James is dependable, on time, flexible, and always manages to make time for an 'emergency' appointment when an unexpected need arises. As a person, he is calm, pleasant, easy-going and focused at the same time. During this second semester, my son's Physics grade rose from. c- (70%) to a B+ (89%). More importantly, James has helped my son regain his confidence in his own abilities, and rekindled his love of science and math. I highly recommend him!!
James is very adept at engaging my son in the problem solving process. We have been seeing increased confidence from my son in his precalculus course.
James is great at helping my daughter gain a sense of confidence that she can handle the material from her class. He is very clear in his explanations. Also, my daughter has commented to me that things James has taught her have better prepared her for a test or quiz than what she learned in class. James has been very accommodating when we have had a scheduling conflict.
James is an excellent teacher, capable of teaching math and science at all levels - college, high school and middle school. He's very intelligent and very knowledgeable about math and science. He is also highly motivated to teach and help his students understand difficult concepts and formulas. He has been tutoring my kids for almost a year. He is very flexible about making time to work with them when they have homework due or upcoming tests. He is also very easy to reach by phone. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
James helped me prepare for my calculus final. He did a very good job explaining the concepts and testing me on the concepts. He's a nice guy that is easy to talk to and knows what he's teaching.
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 taken organic chemistry at UCSB and advanced organic chemistry at CSUF. In preparation for graduate school I studied for the ACS organic chemistry qualifying exam and subsequently aced it. I have helped students studying organic chemistry in graduate school, tutored organic chemistry at the community college level, and have taught the lab and discussion.
I have done research in organic chemistry both in school and in industry. I synthesized organic compounds that would be of use to an inorganic chemistry group as ligands, and I have done research on organic polymers that were of use in industry as contact lenses in one job and as reverse osmosis membranes in another job. I have also worked on treatments for oil wells to increase production.
I have extensive spectroscopic experience with organic chemicals and have designed analyses to detect organic chemicals in air pollution in new and unique ways in addition to earlier experience doing traditional analyses of chemical feedstocks. In my current position as a company owner I am marketing analyzers for specific chemicals of environmental and safety interests.
