Do you need last minute help cramming for an exam, or need some help understanding a math problem? Look no further; I am here to help you pass your exam and complete your homework.

I hold a Ph.D. in mathematics, and I have taught at the collegiate level for over 14 years; in addition to teaching at middle schools and high schools. I have written solution guides, and I am currently in the process of writing a textbook for calculus.

I have taught math subjects ranging from basic mathematics all the way to higher theoretical mathematics. I specialize in teaching calculus, discrete math, linear algebra, precalculus, trigonometry, as well as other subjects. I have taught these subjects for several years, and I know common areas where students tend to struggle in these courses.

My teaching style is one that helps the student to develop the idea, instead of teaching how students how they should think. I have found that individuals tend to remember mathematical concepts better when they discover the explanation. My tutoring style is one that mimics this teaching philosophy. I am not one who gives answers, rather, help the student find the answer. I feel that one-on-one interaction can sometimes better address the needs of a student than teaching to a large group. This interaction will allow us to dig into the material so that you will understand the concepts when it comes time to take an exam.

I enjoy teaching various levels of mathematics whether you have needs to understand basic math concepts or help understanding more advanced theoretical mathematics. I am always ready to explore new ideas and look for new ways to teach a subject.

Mathematica

I am versatile in several computational mathematical programs such as Mathematica and LaTex. I have used these software programs in the courses that I teach. I use LaTex on a daily basis for 10+ years. And, I have been using Mathematica (and other programs) for 7+ years. If you need any help with these two programs, then just let me know.

Discrete Math

I have taught this course for over five years. Through this course, I having taught hundreds of students how to think rationally and logically. This course is one of the fundamental math courses that leads higher levels of mathematical thought.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I am very knowledgeable in linear algebra. My dissertation was in linear algebra and I have taught this course for several years. I can help you with this subject in a way that will make sense to you.

Very helpful and knowledgeable

James was extremely helpful with helping me to understand the material I was having trouble with. He used multiple methods until I had a solid understanding of what I was having trouble with. I would highly recommend a session with James.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

James taught me Directional derivatives and Gradient vectors along with Implicit differentiation. He is very thorough with the content. He helped understand my coursework. I highly recommend getting him as a tutor.

Thank you!

James is a great tutor, very knowledgeable and helpful. Calm and patient, helped me to get through the difficult concepts with ease. He got back to me very quickly and was very accommodating on a short notice to help me with the next day quiz.

Algebra 2 - Absolute Value

He was very professional and helped my daughter better understand the lesson. We will use him more in the future. He is absolutely recommended. Thank you!

Knowledgeable and indescribably helpful tutor

Helped me understand and break down problems in a clear way. He always made sure to call back on what he previously showed me in the session so I could remember it better. Every concept was explained in detail before going on to the larger problem so I could understand each piece of the problem instead of just working to find the whole. It was awesome to be kept engaged by answering questions and working with him instead of just watching. James was incredibly patient with me and always made sure to build my confidence. I never felt bad about not knowing something or making a mistake because he always guided me back to the right track in such a way that showed how much he wanted to make sure I was learning and grasping the question. Absolutely the best tutor I’ve met, I absolutely recommend James to anyone who needs math help!

Olivia, 15 lessons with James

James' easy demeanor relating to the learner translates to the curriculum review. I find my son is more interested in the topic simply because James is instructing it in a logical, useful way.

James is reviewing systems of equations in Algebra. He has helped my son understand the foundations of the strategies and why each step is so important to discovering the solution versus simply memorizing the steps. James introduces concepts that stay with my son far beyond the time together. He challenges, motivates, and inspires my son to learn beyond the constructs of their time together.

Very knowledgeable

He helped me with limits in calculus. He was able to explain all of my questions in a way I understood and gave good examples of problems similar to what I was having trouble with.

Myriah, 1 lesson with James

Very helpful, patient, and knowledgeable

James is great! A big help with Discrete Math and C++. He takes you step by step through the problems, helping you learn the how and why of what you're doing. I don't know how I would have survived without him. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Heather, 4 lessons with James

Amazing tutor

James was so helpful with my math material and flexible with my scheduling. I was worried I was going to fail my linear algebra and differential equations course, but after meeting with him to prepare for the final I scored an incredibly high score to bring my grade up in the course to the B+/A range, which I had never achieved in a college math course before. He is patient, prepared, and diligent. I highly recommend James.
