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.

Great tutor!

James helped me understand several steps of a Mathmatica project that I was working on. He explained the concepts very well and helped me get through the areas that I was having difficulty. I would definitely use him again.

Antonello , 1 lesson with James

Knowledgeable tutor

James tutored my daughter in Calculus BC. My daughter states she learned more in 1 1/2 hour with James than two years in school. Our history with tutors is most waste precious time trying to understand the problems. James immediately understood the content. We are very pleased and look forward to more sessions.
