About James

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

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Very Helpful and Friendly!

James helped me review concepts that I was having difficulty with in my university level physics class. He clearly explained problems and pointed out when I was on the right track, which helped me become more confident in attacking problems. James responded quickly to my request for tutoring and was available when I needed to meet in preparation for tests.
