Hi! My name is James. I started tutoring when I was in High School and have been tutoring ever since. I love helping students achieve their goals. With 15 years of experience, I understand that everyone learns differently and I try to find the best way with each individual student to make that breakthrough. I have worked for several tutoring companies over the years, in both private and classroom settings, and have had much success in not only helping many students score higher, but also have fun in doing so.

I hope that you will choose me to help you or your child. I promise you won't regret it.

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.

ACT Math

Test prep is my specialty. I'd say I have more experience with the SAT, but that's only because the ACT has only recently grown in popularity on the East Coast. Regardless, I love tutoring students for both the ACT and the SAT. Please allow me to help you or your child exceed their expectations on this test, or any test for that matter.

Algebra 2

Algebra is definitely one of my favorite topics in math. In algebra, we're almost always trying to solve a puzzle. And I love solving puzzles! Please allow me to help you or your child excel at solving puzzles, and to have fun doing so.

Geometry

Geometry is fun! It's one of the most tangible and accessible topics in math. Think about it. What other math topic can you actually see, touch, and experience on a daily basis? Sure there are some areas in geometry that can go beyond the daily scope of things... and I'm not referring to pi r squared. Please allow me bring fun to you or your child in the learning of geometry!

Prealgebra

I've been tutoring math since I was in High School, and I still love it! Prealgebra is one of my favorite math topics to teach. I'm not sure if it's the topic or if it's the age of the students, but it always seems like a lot of fun to me, and, I think, to my students. Please, allow me to help you or your child enjoy math as I do, and as a result, succeed.

SAT Math

I've tutored math for many years, since I was in high school, but of all the topics in math, SATs are by far my favorite to teach. Please, allow me the pleasure of helping you or your child do excel on the math portion of the SAT. We'll be successful together and we'll have a great time learning too!
