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 need 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. Credentialed by ACUE, (Association of College and University Educators).

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.

Tremendously helpful math tutor

Excellent tutor for linear and discrete math. Patient and supportive. Helped to overcome anxiety by strategizing on how to approach problems. Highly recommend.

J, 10 lessons with James

Professor James knows how to make sure concepts are understood

I like the way he interacts with my son. He is calm, he is clear and his demeanor is quite enjoyable. He seems to really care about my son understanding the concepts, not just in the lesson but far beyond. Thank you for this awesome professor.

Flexible, responsive and patient tutor

James has helped both of my kids in Algebra 1 and 2, and he explains it in a way that they can clearly understand. They both enjoy working with him, and he's been incredibly accommodating of busy high school schedules. Fantastic tutor!

Amazing Educator!

James was very thorough in his explanations and examples he reviewed with my son for Calculus BC. I wish every teacher could exemplify his calm, passionate demeanor to encourage students to be successful. Thank you so much for your help!!

Debbie, 1 lesson with James

Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

Established an excellent repour very quickly, and James was able to easily diagnose my learning level and be able to explain the material in a way that made sense for me. He walked me through each step of the process, while making sure at the same time that I was understanding and comprehending the material.

Chris, 5 lessons with James

Helpful and thorough

Helped my son with Calc BC/ IB Math HL. He shows, instead of tells, my son how to approach the problems. My son left the session with more confidence and ability.

Leigh, 14 lessons with James

Life saver!

James is great! He explains everything thoroughly. Sure one can know how to solve a problem without understanding what’s going on. However, James ensures you understand the concepts behind the problem so you can be better prepared to tackle and solve more complicated ones. He also provided tips and tricks my own professor did not. Thank you!

Emmanuel, 27 lessons with James

Great tutor!

Helped me with calculus 2. He is a very knowledgeable tutor. He’s very patient with you and really helps you understand the material instead of just telling you what to do. I always look forward to my sessions with him.

Matthew, 12 lessons with James

Fabulous Tutor!

My son has struggled hard with Algebra 1 all year. James has helped him get past mental blocks and learn concepts that were not clicking before. So thankful to have found James!
