Hello Students!

If you need help with mathematics, physics, or engineering, I'd be glad to help out. With dedication, every student succeeds, so don’t despair!

Learning new disciplines keeps me very aware of the struggles all students face. Beyond academics, I spend my time backpacking, kayaking, weightlifting, jogging, bicycling, metalworking, woodworking, and building a wilderness home of my own design.

In between formal tutoring sessions, I offer my students FREE email support to keep them moving past particularly tough problems. 
In addition, I offer FREE ALL NIGHT email/phone support just before the “big" exam, for students who pull "all nighters".

One quick note about my cancellation policy, as it's different than most tutors: Cancel one or all sessions at any time, and there is NO CHARGE. 

Thank you for considering my services, and the best of luck in all your endeavors!

Warm regards,

Dr. James P.

The best I've seen...knows all...but down to earth — This guy is great. I have two college kids, one taking engineering and one taking calc. Jim knows every question in a variety of subjects. He is always ready to work. He's like the energizer bunny. His attitude is always upbeat and positive. For a guy who knows so much, he is very down to earth and interested. I recommend him to everyone. I've used other tutors...he's tops. ...
