James’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
My experience in tutoring algebra and other math subjects is rich! I have been employed multiple years in both colleges and elementary schools teaching and tutoring students in math and science.
Over the last seven years I have tutored hundreds of students in math, from children to adults. I have received many awards and certificates for excellence in tutoring. I have also received extensive tutoring training that highly qualifies me to help students with learning disabilities succeed in math.
Biology is my passion! I currently hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and have a strong appreciation for the life sciences. I have a deep understanding of every biological concept you are likely to come across in a biology course. I have tutored hundreds of high school and college students in biology over the last seven years. I am highly qualified and capable to discuss any biological science topic at an advanced level.
As a biology major during college, I had to take many chemistry courses. In fact, a great amount of biology actually requires a strong understanding of chemistry. Over the last seven years I have tutored hundreds of high school and college students in chemistry.
I have a tremendous amount of experience teaching and tutoring Elementary Math. For multiple years I have worked in elementary and grammar schools with the sole responsibility of helping academically struggling schools increase their math scores.
Whether the elementary math is being taught from a textbook, or taught from a special online program, I have had lots of experience teaching and tutoring all age ranges in elementary math.
To speak or write with perfect English grammar only takes patience and practice. I have been studying English grammar at an advanced level for the last decade. I have also worked at colleges and elementary schools as a tutor helping students succeed in English. I have lots of experience teaching Standard English grammar and proofreading essays.
Regardless of one's dialect or educational background, I am highly qualified to prepare him or her to immediately begin speaking and writing with perfect English grammar.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and have conducted genetics research at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. A genetics course was one of the required core courses for my major. Also, most of the courses I have taken in biological science covered varying amounts of genetics instruction and overlap. Finally, genetics is my most fascinating discipline of biology, and I have spent a great amount of time interpreting genetics concepts and solving application problems. Finally, I have years of experience tutoring biology, in which genetics problems have come up.
