About James


Bio

I have a lot of experience helping students through both teaching and tutoring students in the Southern Illinois Area. I have been a teacher at Southern Illinois University during my time as a graduate student. I have taught or TA'd a class each semester for the last seven years and have been an instructor of record twice. I have been the teaching assistant for Plant Breeding, Plant Genetics, and Field Plot Techniques (a statistics class dealing with designs). I have also been instructor of...

I have a lot of experience helping students through both teaching and tutoring students in the Southern Illinois Area. I have been a teacher at Southern Illinois University during my time as a graduate student. I have taught or TA'd a class each semester for the last seven years and have been an instructor of record twice. I have been the teaching assistant for Plant Breeding, Plant Genetics, and Field Plot Techniques (a statistics class dealing with designs). I have also been instructor of record for Precision Agriculture and Soil Fertility Evaluation (a mixture of soil chemistry and fertilizer application math).

On top of that, I have started tutoring for a few different subjects within graduate school. I am one of the main contacts for people to help understand their statistics, both in Biostatistics and in their actual graduate projects at the school. I am well versed in using R and JMP for statistical analysis and for helping the students to understand what is being asked and how to understand their results. I have also done analysis for understanding models for systems, the algebra in the models, and qualitative versus quantitative analysis.

I have worked with statistics and statistical models in order to help understand how those models work. My main program to use for this is R due to it's flexibility and power. A high knowledge of algebra is needed for this type of work.

My research and schooling rely heavily on my knowledge of biology and biological systems. I need to understand how plant systems work and how to analyze those results in order to provide correct answer. Because of this, I know what needs to be known and understood both in biology and biostatistics.

If you have any need for a tutor please don't hesitate to contact me. I am very flexible with my hours and will do what I can to help!

R Whiz

James is an R whiz. He responds quickly and knows what he's doing. Helped me with Biostatistics and I'm not easy to help. Very thankful I discovered Wyzant and I plan to work with James again.

Tiffany, 3 lessons with James

Great Biostatistics tutor

James is patient and is able to breakdown the material so I’m able to understand the problems I’m being presented with. I would definitely recommend James to someone in need of a statics tutor!

Brittany, 3 lessons with James

Knowledgeable & Helpful

We went over Chemistry basics and some microbiology. Very good in helping me to understand the periodic table and electron structure. We also covered the Lewis structure. Chemistry is a very intimidating subject to me and James explains the concepts in a way that I can understand.

Lisa, 32 lessons with James

Very helpful and patient

James assisted my on an assignment for a course on R Programming. James was very patient and kind and laid out the assignment for me, provided useful articles, and laid out each function step by step. Highly recommend!

Samantha, 1 lesson with James

Helpful and patient tutor

James reviewed Biostatistics in R. He had worked on the assignment prior to our session so he was informed of my assignment and fully prepared. He went over, step-by-step, each line item to help me understand what exactly it was doing, answered all of my questions, and made sure I was comfortable with the information. My only regret is not having him assist me earlier in the class as this would have helped me greatly. If needed again, I will be sure to request his assistance again. Thanks!

Tara, 1 lesson with James

Great Statistics Tutor

James made the content understandable by relating the concepts in plain English. I feel more confident in the material because it was made clear to me in a way that I understood. Thank you James! I will definitely be using him for any additional needs in math and stats!

Kids are motivated to learn!

Just started this week with 3 of our boys and seems to be going great! Kids are motivated to learn and despite their disabilities seem to be keeping up=) Thank you James!
