Bio

I'm James. I am currently a freshman at Santa Monica. Ever since sophomore year, I have been infatuated with tutoring. Although it was not my dream job, it was a way for me to connect with people and tutor people who need it. When I volunteered to tutor, I realized the necessity of a good teacher.

I'm James. I am currently a freshman at Santa Monica. Ever since sophomore year, I have been infatuated with tutoring. Although it was not my dream job, it was a way for me to connect with people and tutor people who need it. When I volunteered to tutor, I realized the necessity of a good teacher. Especially in the peer tutoring program, students from the same teacher would appear for help on multiple assignments and the actual lesson. As someone who excels in textbook learning, I realize the importance of a good teacher well versed in multiple modes of learning: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic (hands-on learning).

In terms of education, I am going to college this fall. However, I have a 3.77 unweighted GPA and rank 52 of 578. I was a tutor in the AP Calculus BC Club and peer tutoring program, where I have experience teaching and assisting in a range of different math and science subjects from Algebra 1 to AP Physics C. I also have a year of experience as a tutor in the Algebra 1 support class. In the Algebra 1 support class, I tutor a small group of 3-4 kids struggling in math, and I take as much time as possible to help them improve their number sense and the fundamentals of math. Although there is a limited amount of time, I always check for understanding and encourage students to understand math instead of memorizing it.

Outside tutoring, I love Computer-Aided Design. I am a Robotics business leader and the Computer-Aided Design club president, so I use Computer-Aided Design often.

I can tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, AP Calculus AB(Calculus 1), AP Calculus BC(Calculus 2), AP Physics and Chemistry.
AP Calculus BC Score: 5
AP Chemistry Score: 5
AP Physics C Mechanics:5
SAT Math: 750

I am available easy to reach, and I have a flexible schedule. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Really helpful for Calculus AP exam!

James has been really helpful this past year in preparing for the Calculus BC exam. He is very flexible, and was always on time during lessons. He also explained difficult concepts patiently, and was super thorough. Would definitely recommend if you're taking calculus in the future and need some guidance!

Patient tutor

Ran through AP problems - integrals conceptually. He helped my daughter tremendously in just one lesson. He was very knowledgeable about the topic and we plan on continuing with additional lessons. Thx

Amy, 1 lesson with James

Great tutor - teaching skills and knowledge of subject matter.

James helped my daughter with a few concepts she was struggling with in Calculus BC. She was able to understand the concepts and said he explained the material in an easy to understand manner. We look forward to working with him on a more regular basis.

Susan, 11 lessons with James

Patient and reliable

My son has three lessons a week with James. He is so reliable and never missed one lesson. He made sure my son understands all the concept for material. He is alway very calm and extremely patient.

Wei, 45 lessons with James

knew the subject well

James was great (and patient) with my daughter in helping her get caught up. He made sure she understood, was able to step back and forward to move the lesson along at a good pace. He was encouraging and also let her figure out the problems and help guide her back if she got lost without telling her specifically the answers or solving them for her. They packed a LOT of info into one lesson!

Ap calculus

Excellent! My daughter needed help with precalculus concepts as this subject was not covered properly during the pandemic virtual option in school. She had a difficult time with the first two quizzes in AP Calculus. James efficiently taught new concepts and clarified review subjects. He was very helpful and responded promptly.
