## Great tutor and very patient

Malva, 26 lessons with JamesJames does an excellent job tutoring Calculus 4-differential equations. He has an excellent grasp of the subject and provides examples from physics that illustrate the useful application of the topic.

I specialize in college math, physics and physical chemistry courses. Very few tutors are willing to help with these classes. If you need help with Calculus 3, differential equations, linear algebra, Mechanics, E&M, Modern Physics, Physical Chemistry, I'm your guy.

My top priority is to give you a conceptual understanding of the material (as opposed to rote memorization). I do this by asking you questions to gauge your understanding. Then I assign tailored problems (often which I make up...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have a master's degree in physics and am currently working on a book detailing a philosophy of mathematics education.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra 2 often has students memorizing and regurgitating concepts they are not really taught to understand. My approach reduces Algebra 2 down to concepts the student already understands from Algebra 1, allowing them to gain a genuine understanding of the ideas. I have been using this method to great effect for many years. Many students who used to hate math now love it because it now makes sense to them.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

Students will gain a genuine understanding of the meaning of these concepts without just memorizing formulas. This forms a solid foundation for critical thinking for college and/or skills that are required for STEM study in college.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

My approach focuses on understanding concepts. Teachers in this subject tend to have the students memorize and regurgitate theorems without understanding what they mean or even why they matter. My approach focuses on both. Many students over the years have told me that they hated geometry until I showed them how it was actually useful and logical.

Physics,
#### Physics

Most students find this class difficult because they have been taught to memorize equations when physics requires intimate understanding of how to apply math. My approach focuses on understanding the concepts, then learning how to apply the math from there. I have a masters degree in this subject and have been teaching it for over a decade.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

Precalculus often has students memorizing and regurgitating concepts they are not really taught to understand. My approach reduces precalculus down to concepts the student already understands from algebra, allowing them to gain a genuine understanding of the ideas.

Differential Equations,
#### Differential Equations

I have been using differential equations for the last 4 years of my Physics classes, and for 2 years in my research. Differential Equations forms the foundation of Quantum Mechanics, which is my primary area of study.

Discrete Math,
#### Discrete Math

I have 6 years of experience tutoring college level math, including teaching discrete mathematics. To complete my degree, I needed all the skills one learns in discrete mathematics and I have experience tutoring students in this subject. Let me know your specific subject needs for more information.

Geometry,

Linear Algebra,
#### Linear Algebra

My specialty in Physics is Quantum Mechanics, which uses linear vector spaces, an advanced concept in Linear Algebra. Not only did I take a class in the basics of Linear Algebra as an undergrad, but I have been using the advanced concepts of linear vector spaces for the last three years in my Quantum Mechanics courses and research.

## Good tutor

He was helping my son with calculus , it worked well, overall my son had 3 hours of tutoring, all very useful. Recommend James over few others we didn’t h have such a good luck

Yuriy, 2 lessons with James

## Great instructor extremely helpful

He was a excellent instructor, able to transfer his knowledge of the Calculus 3 subject matter in a concise simple manor. I left the session with better understanding of material. Will definitely utilize his services again! Thank you

Rian, 5 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable tutor

James E. knows the field of physics well. He was patient and thorough with my son. He provided a good review to prepare for a final examination in physics. My son feels confident to pass his exam.

Erica, 1 lesson with James

## Great session

Gave such clear direction! Understand the concepts covered so much better now. Looking forward to future lessons and enjoying physics more because of it. Thanks so much!

Cheryl, 1 lesson with James

## Amazing tutor

Enthusiastic, patient, knowledgeable. Always makes sure you understand what you are learning. When teaching physics, he makes sure you know the concept, not just the math.

Angela, 11 lessons with James

## First lesson went great!

Worked with my daughter on her college level Physics homework and gave her a much better understanding of the material. She plans to continue getting help from James. Glad to find someone with extensive knowledge in Physics!

Suzie, 1 lesson with James

## Excellent Tutor

James is a highly competent tutor who knows the material very well and is equally good at assessing the student's capabilities and knowledge. James will not move forward until he is sure you understand the concept. Excellent tutor!

Aaron, 3 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable and helpful

He made things clear and gave me new strategies for figuring out problems. He has positive energy and didn’t waste a moment. Very effective. Also he was timely.

Colton, 2 lessons with James

## Perfect tutor for my 16 year old son!

Took the time to explain and gave good advice what my son needs to work on. James explained and showed my son how to figure out problems. We met with him the day before my son had to take a test and James made it a lot easier to take, giving tips and strategies. My son can't wait to meet with James again!
