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

He helped me with proofs and the understanding of some concepts in set theory. James is really patient and I feel like he could handle any mathematical induction problem.

Cody, 2 lessons with James

James was very helpful

I've been struggling with discrete math for a while and James was able to walk me through some examples step by step that really helped me understand the concepts. Very patient and helpful.

Tom, 1 lesson with James

Knowledgeable Tutor, very thorough and patient.

He taught my son various precalculus equations. The lesson was very helpful for my son, leaving my son very comfortable with the material. Will use this tutor again.

Valerie, 1 lesson with James

James helped my daughter get her grades up!

My daughter was having difficulty with some of her junior-year pre-calc lessons, and James was pivotal in helping her understand the subject and get her grades back up.

Karen, 3 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.

Excellent Tutor

James B. tutored me in abstract linear algebra and calculus III. He was extremely helpful. During our tutoring sessions, he would pull up visual 3d graphics on wolfram alpha and other important formula sheets. In addition, he had helpful real life analogies that enabled me to understand mathematical concepts better. Also, he is very enthusiastic about teaching math.

Barbara, 23 lessons with James

Terrific tutor

Lara thought he was terrific, very helpful. I’ll hear more about the session later, I’m sure. They worked on geometry. Again, I don’t know the specifics yet, and I’m math-challenged, but my daughter gave a very positive assessment!

Elysa, 17 lessons with James

Very knowledgeable and patient

Explained everything throughly and in a simple yet complete way so that I both understood but also achieved the correct answer. He was also very patient and made sure that I was understanding everything in the process

Danny, 5 lessons with James

Another great lesson

This was my second lesson with James. He did a great job of explaining everything in simple terms for me.
