"Jim's passion for science is evident in his teaching!"
Patricia from Pittsburgh, PA on 8/7/12
I'm beginning a rigorous academic program and worried that my knowledge and understanding of some foundations are weak and that new information is difficult to master. I reviewed these subjects on my own, but didn't feel I was truly understanding or retaining the information. After one session with Jim I'm confident I can not only grasp the material, but I will retain it.
Jim breaks down complicated processes into easy to understand steps. More importantly, he gives relevance to subjects that can seem strictly theoretical. Jim has an incredible depth of knowledge and is able to communicate that knowledge to his students; he can evaluate the student's understanding and, if necessary, will explain a difficult concept in a different way before moving on.
Jim is highly organized and tutoring time is efficient and effective. I recommend Jim for any student at any level; his enthusiasm for his subjects makes learning enjoyable.

Jim spent the extra time with Ryan on his English essay, really trying to get him to use his own thoughts about the novel he read. I believe he made it so Ryan understood the story line better as well as the characters. Shakespeare is tough!!

I hired Jim to tutor my daughter for her upcoming TEAS exam. I was pleased to find out that his wife Erica is also a tutor (on WyzAnt). Between the both of them, they were able to cross tutor my daughter, offering their individual expertise in the areas needed. They both are very professional and seem to really care about their students!

My daughter is tutoring with Jim. She is enjoying the sessions and feels that what she is learning will greatly help her with her upcoming ACT.
"Great SAT Tutor"
Julie from Gibsonia, PA on 6/3/13
Jim is a great tutor and mentor. My son has been getting SAT tutoring from him and enjoys his time spent with Jim. He has helped build my son's confidence and knowledge on the SAT subjects. Jim is very detailed with his review after each tutoring session so we know where he stands after each lesson. He really is interested in the kids and how well they achieve. Thank you for all your time spent with my son.
"Outstanding Tutor "

I really appreciate the work you have done with my daughter and I am just amazed as to how quickly her scores are improving based on your guidance and tutoring techniques. I also appreciate your efforts in providing detailed session summaries, practice tests, and the pointers she needs for success. T-H-A-N-K-S!
"Fantastic Instructor...The Best"
Shawn from Gibsonia, PA on 3/11/13
Dr. Jim is by far the best instructor I've ever had. His approach, caring attitude and vast knowledge in multiple disciplines is amazing. My math knowledge has increased substantially and test scores are improving weekly. I'm so thankful for his help.
"A Great Tutor/Great Find"
Susan from Pittsburgh, PA on 12/4/12
I found Jim L through Wyzant. I was looking for a tutor who could help my son with high school chemistry. My son was lost and frustrated and losing confidence in his ability. I contacted Jim and he called me back immediately. We spoke for a long time about my son, his strengths and deficiencies and his learning style. Jim made room in his schedule for my son right away. After one session of tutoring, Jim was able to break down the chemistry concepts into smaller, more manageable lessons to the point my son thoroughly understood. Jim kept my son engaged and, through his patience, was able to make my son understand that chemistry is not as intimidating as it seems. Jim provided him with notes that he could study and apply on his own to enable him to be a more independent learner and thus, build confidence in himself. I highly recommend Jim.
"Fantastic tutor and a great motivator"
Susan from Pittsburgh, PA on 7/22/12
Our son has now had 7 MCAT tutoring sessions with Jim and we are extremely satisfied. Jim dives
right in with the student and determines their capabilities then proceeds to focus on the scope of
material for the MCAT test. He is very professional and encourages the student's strengths while
building on weaknesses. Jim keeps the student on track and moving forward with practice testing and
building on precision and fluency. We are very excited on our son's progress in just a few tutoring sessions.
