About James


Bio

I have always had a love of learning and teaching. I have worked with students for over 20 years. I started tutoring when I was in high school. I tutored fellow high school students in Math starting my junior year. When I attended Cal Poly, I tutored science and engineering students on campus. And finally, when I studied at Stanford University for graduate work I taught undergraduate classes in chemical engineering. After graduate school I worked in the semiconductor industry and then...

I have always had a love of learning and teaching. I have worked with students for over 20 years. I started tutoring when I was in high school. I tutored fellow high school students in Math starting my junior year. When I attended Cal Poly, I tutored science and engineering students on campus. And finally, when I studied at Stanford University for graduate work I taught undergraduate classes in chemical engineering. After graduate school I worked in the semiconductor industry and then retired to raise my three daughters. Now that I have more free time I decided to get back into tutoring and working with students. I will work hard to help you learn the material and master the concepts.

I specialize in tutoring Math, Chemistry, Physics, and Chemical Engineering courses. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank You
James

Knowledgeable College Chem Tutor

James came well prepared for our lesson. He is very capable of tutoring college level Chemistry and can explain hard concepts clearly. Thanks to him, I have a better understanding of the chapter for my upcoming exam.

Tanya, 1 lesson with James

Patient Tutor

James was very patient with my son explaining the concepts and asking and checking for understanding. My son really appreciated James help and has a better understanding for Chemistry now! Thanks James :)

Nevine , 2 lessons with James

Great Physics Tutor

James was very good at explaining Physics through examples. He was very efficient at helping me set up problems and was great at helping me understand conceptually.

Lisa, 2 lessons with James

Great tutor

James is a very thorough and knowlegable. He helped my daughter with her AP chemistry. He made difficult problems easy to understand. He is a great tutor. Definitely recommend him to anyone who needs chemistry tutor.

Shelly, 7 lessons with James

Excellent tutor

My daughter has only had two tutoring sessions for her physics class and James has helped her enormously already she has had a great experience with James as her tutor!!

Crystal, 13 lessons with James

Excellent tutor!

James is knowledgeable and has a way of simplifying difficult concepts until it can be understood by the student. He ensures that the student has a firm understanding before moving on. And even if sometimes that may take a little longer, he is always patient and creative in his approach. Nothing but kudos for James!

Suzi, 71 lessons with James

Very Encouraging

My daughter just had her first session with James. He was able to explain her physics in a really clear manner. She felt so much more confidence after just one session. He was prompt and very encouraging towards her. Thanks!
