## James is a fantastic math tutor!

Elisabeth, 68 lessons with JamesJames has been working with my daughter for a year now. My daughter is a product of CGI and CPM math curriculums. While I am sure that these approaches have many benefits, my daughter needs a little more structure. James has done a fabulous job building a more solid foundation for her to be successful in high school math.

Teaching is a passion to me. I graduated from Wash U in St. Louis with a degree in Mathematics, making the Dean's List my Senior Year. Returning to LA as Center Director of Mathnasium in Beverly Hills I managed the curriculum for more than 100 students K-12. I'm now a full-time private tutor with students from K through Grad School.

I offer classes at every level from basic Math to college Calculus (I, II, and III) - and every step along the way: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry,...

## I highly recommend James

James is a terrific tutor and works hard to customize his tutoring content to individual student needs. He helped my son with Calculus II by understanding where my son was having difficulty and then walking him through typical problems and solution sets for precisely the areas in which my son was being challenged. I highly recommend James based on his consultative style and his focus on bringing the student the exact content that will help the most.

## Knowledgeble, patient, and very accepting

James was great with my trig student. He was patient and encouraging and they would always leave the tutoring session feeling more in control of their knowledge. Wouldn't hesitate to ask specifically for James if we ever need math tutoring again.

He is always willing to help and answer questions outside of tutoring hours. He is extremely helpful at giving extra practice problems outside of tutoring hours. He will always makes sure to make the class as fun as possible, and will try to improve in your weak points while backing up your strongs. I would totally recommend to anyone to get in contact with James if you think you need tutoring or someone to ask some questions about certain math problems.
