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

Excellent Tutor

Excellent tutor. Very patient and extremely knowledgeable. By far the best tutor my son has ever had. I highly recommend Jim.

Gene, 1 lesson with Jim

Very knowledgeable and extremely patient.

He is helping me get back to the basics. He is full of tips and tricks to solving simple mathematics. Never once did he hesitate on explaining what to do and how to do it. Very kind and respectful person. Look forward to working with him again.

Alan, 12 lessons with Jim

Great Calculus Tutor

Jim did an awesome job of tutoring my daughter for a calculus 3 for engineers exam. Her test was the next day and she was in desperate need of a tutor. Jim met with her within hours of me contacting him. He was knowledgeable, through, and explain the problems clearly. Not very many tutors can competently step at the last moment into such a high level of math. She left tutoring with a smile on her face. I think that says it all.

THE BEST!!

Jim is my go to tutor! He helped me pass from a F to an A for my college algebra class! He has patience and has great teaching ways to help whomever he is tutoring to learn! He made notes for me to go back on as well, whenever I needed them. He's is the most comfortable tutor to sit and meet with. I will continue to tutor with Jim because he gets the job done perfectly. Very nice individual as well.

Knowledgeable Tutor

I was very impressed with how thorough he was in teaching me concepts. He clearly knows what he's doing and is an excellent teacher. I was able to learn a great of information from him.

Aman, 18 lessons with Jim

Patient Tutor who can connect learning to everyday life

Jim taught me more about functions and graphing and helped me solve problems that I missed on my SAT so that way I can do better on my next SAT. If I did not understand something he made a connection to a real life example.

Gabriela, 6 lessons with Jim

Excellent Teacher!

Is extremely knowledgeable about physics and very patient while teaching! He helps you understand the concepts which is essential in learning physics! Definitely recommend!

Kayla, 2 lessons with Jim

Very thorough and patient

He was great! I understood more in one hour than I have all summer! He made sure I was getting it before moving on to the next problem. I highly recommend him to anyone who is struggling with physics.

Breanne, 1 lesson with Jim

Helpful and knowlegeable

My son has missed 20% of a geometry unit, due to sports and received a 70% on his test. Jim was able to help him fill in the missing blanks. My son retook the test and improved his score by 21% after just one tutoring session. I would definitely recommend Jim and would schedule with him again if my son needs it.
