I have a PhD in Biology from Notre Dame and a double major in Honors and Comprehensive Science BS from Villanova University. I have a strong background in Biology, Chemistry, and Math. I have work experience with Public Health and Molecular Genetics. The Biology degree at Notre Dame involved Malaria research. The Science Degrees at Villanova included classes in Biology, Ecology, Genetics, Bio-statistics, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, as well as three sections of Engineering Calculus.

I have tutored numerous students in a variety of subjects one-on-one. These students range from inner city middle school students to a college ESL student working towards taking the TOEFL to get into an American graduate school.

Always patient, makes himself available whenever he is needed! — This has been a great semester working with Jim as he tutored my grandson! My grandson has come so far in chemistry with Jim as his tutor and was able to understand geometry better too. He has finished his geometry and chemistry for this school year, but we are looking forward to having Jim as his tutor next school year for math and science! Thank you Jim! ...
