About Jim

Hello. I am a math and physics teacher at a local high school with 26 years of teaching experience. Most of my career has been spent teaching math, chemistry, and physics at the high school level but I have experience teaching middle school as well as experience as an adjunct lecturer at Northern Kentucky University. I am comfortable teaching students of all levels: general students, gifted students, and students with special needs. My favorite thing about teaching is watching students get excited when everything suddenly becomes clear and they "get it". That visible joy and the resulting boost in self-confidence is what I work for.

Feel free to contact me if you need help catching up, keeping up, or trying to get ahead in your studies. I am happy to share strategies to support your learning to help ensure your success! :) Jim
