"Outstanding Algebra Tutor"
- Jim, Houston, TX on 7/11/12
It is my pleasure to recommend James P as an Algebra tutor. My son was taking a 5 week summer course in Algebra at a local college. The course was extremely fast-paced and less than a week before the final, our son requested that we hire a tutor to explain key concepts. After searching through numerous profiles for Algebra tutors, we settled on Mr. P because of his stated ability to “explain apparently complex issues to people at many levels of sophistication without distorting the truth and being friendly, approachable and flexible.” I can honestly say that Mr. P delivered on this assertion which resulted in a positive experience for our son and in the Algebra class. His professionalism, follow-through, and integrity exemplify his trustworthiness as an instructor. The bottom line is our son was successful on the final and received a B+ for the course. Also, our son requested to continue the tutoring sessions (even though the class is over) due to Mr. P's gift for explaining complicated math issues. This is a first for son and directly related to Mr. P’s guidance and encouragement to learn.

James is always very patient & such an awesome tutor. My daughter has done great in chemistry since James has been tutoring her.
We are very happy with James!
"Glad we have him! "
- Rendy, Houston, TX on 11/19/14
He brought her 65 average up to a 91 by the second six weeks! We are keeping him all year long, maybe next year too.

Our sessions are Friday evenings and you'd think it would be a downer for my son, but James is such a good teacher, my son finishes each lesson bolstered, upbeat, and more confident in his ability and understanding. James teaches the material while also building confidence. He is a great teacher.
"Such a great tutor!"

My daughter flunked Algebra last year, and this year, she's taking Algebra again AND Geometry. Just a few weeks into the school year she told me she needed a math tutor because she was already flunking Geometry. So she's had 2 sessions with James so far. She came home from school today ecstatic because she got an 81 (!!!!!!) on her Geometry test today and is up to a C in that class now! James is so patient with her, far more patient than she is with herself. He explains things in a way she understands and her confidence is growing fast. He stays with her until she firmly grasps their objectives for the session. Then I receive a note from him explaining their session. We are so thankful James is working with her. Thank you James!

James has been great with my son on tutoring days. He relates and is calm at explaining the processes. He understand how teaching is being done in schools now and expects the students to be responsible to practice at home. He is flexible and is willing to go the extra mile.

James was my tutor for the entire summer. He was there for me through Chemistry 1- I made an A in the course- and Chemistry 2- I made a B in the course. My professors did not provide all of the needed information, however, James was able to provide me with the necessary information to be successful with both courses. He was very encouraging throughout the summer and never left our sessions before I had a full understanding of the course material. James is a phenomenal tutor and you will not go wrong with contacting him for assistance.

James is a very patient, capable tutor. I am so glad I found him. I am finally being taught basic fundamentals that I have never had in my previous school. It is very difficult for me but he will get me through it. He is the best!!
"Very patient but firm on expectations."
- Robert, Cypress, TX on 10/25/13
James is a great tutor. He is very patient but firm on expectations with my son who is a Junior in High School. I would definitely recommended James as a math tutor.
- Shelly, Magnolia, TX on 10/14/13
James works very well with my son on pre-calculus. He makes sure that he has a good understanding of the concepts.
- Gary, Houston, TX on 9/26/13
James is extremely interested in the success of his students. He is tutoring two of my high school children, and both love him. We couldn't ask for a better solution for our tutoring needs.
- Tammy, Cypress, TX on 6/24/13
James is a fantastic tutor who has helped me immensely! I had an extremely hard time grasping several key concepts in algebra and he walked me through each one, step by step. I would recommend James for tutoring due to his patience, professionalism, and kindness.
"We love Jim!"

Due to multiple conflicts on our side, our daughter missed her weekly "Jim Pre-Cal" booster shot for the past few weeks. Her test grades reflect that gap and she is very happy to be back on schedule!
"Great tutor that can explain dificult or hard to comprehend algebra problems"
- Joshua, Cypress, TX on 3/17/13
James is a great tutor that can explain difficult algebra problems in a language that I can more easily understand. I have used him 4 or 5 times now throughout the semester and has been easy to work with and a great resource of information. I highly recommend him!
- Maria, Cypress, TX on 2/15/13
My daughter was in immediate need for a math tutor for the advanced classes at her medical school. We were fortunate enough to find James on WyzAnt, which by the way is brilliant and easy!
James came to our home to tutor whenever my daughter needed his assistance. He was brilliant as well in his assessment of her and her capabilities! He was able to show her how to let go of the fear she had about math and algebra, and definitely lessened the confusion when it came to working the problems out.
My daughter finished her math finals with an 85%, which is considerably higher than what she originally thought she could get! She definitely gets credit for working so hard and diligently, but we both give James a 100% for his efforts and professionalism! I also need to add, he has a very kind and sweet disposition!
"Keeps his sense of humor too!"
- Cynthia, Houston, TX on 11/27/12
Really appreciate the patience and humor while working on some tedious (at least to my teen) stuff. Keeps my daughter engaged. Thanks!
"James P is an all time patient, inspiring tutor"
- Ram, Houston, TX on 5/20/12
Mr. James P is really an all time calm, patient, inspiring teacher. My son loves his biology tutoring method because he teaches in a fun way. He just had 2 lessons with him. Prior to start tutoring he met us and introduced himself and talked about how he approaches students and many more valuable tips for no cost. When he couldn't make it on the scheduled time, he did the next class for free. We highly recommend Mr.James for anybody who is willing to learn and get inspired. He is very easy to be reached via any method of communication. We really thank WYZANT for providing this greatest opportunity to have such a great teacher.
"Makes the student think!!!"
- Debora, Houston, TX on 4/19/12
James has been EXTREMELY helpful! My son has gone from a "D" in Algebra 2 to making 90s on his test and just brought home a personal note from the teacher about how well he is doing and how hard he is trying! It is just awesome! James has given my son a great foundation to build on as he starts college. HIGHLY recommend!
"Patient and intuitive tutor"
- Linda, Katy, TX on 2/17/12
James really focuses on identifying the root cause, picking up on several items when working with my son. My son likes to be a self learner and has taught himself some inaccurate ways. James was able to identify this very quickly and begin the process of relearning correct ways. An added bonus is that my son felt he got something out of the session which is a huge compliment after trying 3 other tutors who did not get positive feedback from my son. :)
"Very good tutor"
- Julie, Spring, TX on 2/10/12
James was very helpful! My son did very well on his science final and I would definitely use him again.
"Patient & Thorough"
- Lori, Katy, TX on 1/3/12
James P. has been such a great help to me in my Algebra tutoring! Going back to college after 15 years and trying to build on my Algebra skills to prepare for Trigonometry has been intimidating. In just 3 tutoring sessions, James has had tremendous patience with me and has thoroughly explained the concepts to me so that I feel as if I've always known them -- it really does come back to you, as he said it would! James knew just where to start in building my fundamental algebra skills. He has a way of explaining things that make them click! James truly has a thorough understanding of mathematics and is a great tutor! Highly recommended!
- Djuana, Houston, TX on 12/19/11
Mr. P came to my daughter's rescue 2 days before a semester Geometry final and worked wonders. She had not passed one Geometry test since school started but made an 85 on the most important test that helped her pull out a high C for the semester. We could not have asked for more and will definitely be using his services in the future!
