About James

I have over 10 years successful tutoring experience in the Bay Area. I used to be a Chinese and math tutor at Diable Valley College for two years. My passion is to help students transforming their grades from "Fs" to "As". It has been a very rewarding experience, since my students get to understand the subjects a lot better as well as improve their grades. I love working with students of all ages and teaching the many subjects I know. My specialties are Math, Economics, Accounting and Chinese Mandarin. I am very patient and friendly. I am also able to explain an idea in many different ways. Many students tell me that I can explain concepts much better than their teachers.

I have an Economics & Accounting BA degree from UCLA. To provide a quality tutoring service is my Ultimate goal. I look forward to working with you!
