About James

I have 3 years of experience tutoring math for the University of Colorado and about 2 years privately tutoring on my own. With my degree in engineering I have a good deal of experience with critical thinking in general as well as the math required for that degree. When I graduated I was no longer eligible to keep tutoring there as they only hire students! So because I loved that job I want to keep tutoring and I would love to help you out.

Tutoring math is one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. Having been a math student myself, I know how frustrating it is to be confronted with a big set of problems that you know is going to take all night because the wording in the theorem is all Greek or because the equation makes no sense. It's a special thing to be able to turn a nightmare into a manageable project or better yet, something you actually enjoy!

My expertise is mostly in algebra, precalculus, and calculus. Whether you're in high school or college, I can provide homework assistance, test prep, and material reviews in a way that will help you to understand the concepts behind those weird theorems and axioms so you can actually use them to get your homework done AND perform better on tests!

I am currently available virtually any time Monday through Friday. I'm looking forward to working with you!
