I am a recently retired high school math teacher after teaching for 34 years. I was a department Chairman for the math department for 15 years and also worked at a local community college teaching math for 6 years. I have taught all levels of high school math classes Including Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, PreCalculus, and Statistics.. I have been tutoring for much of my career and love working one on one with students. I believe “Math Is Life” and anybody can learn math. The key is to believe in yourself and be willing to work at it. Math is fun so connect with me and find out for yourself.

My process is to listen to students needs and then teach through doing. That is I explain the concept of process involved and get the student active right away, doing the problems. I teach through a discovery method of learning with constant involvement between student and teacher throughout the lesson.

I have worked a lot over my career with students who struggled in math at both the high school and college level. I know that together we can succeed as I have seen it happen many times before. Connect with me to schedule a lesson and find out.

Amazing tutor!

I had a great session with James. He helped me understand fundamentals before my test. Very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend him and will be taking more classes with him in the future.

AP3, 2 lessons with James

He is a great tutor.

My daughter likes his AP statistics class a lot. He always leaves a summary which is great. I can know how my daughter is doing. I recommend him as a great tutor.

Hannah, 10 lessons with James

Excellent and Very Helpful Teacher!

We engaged James P's services to help our daughter with her Algebra II Honors course, and it was money well spent. She had some specific concepts she needed help undertsanding, and he was able to help her accomplish that. He was prepared and capable, and worked well with our daughter and explained the material she was struggling with very clearly. We absolutely intend to continue working with him in the future and would recommend him for anyone else needing help with advanced math.

Praxis Math Test Prep

Jim was knowledgeable and kind! Just what this math-anxiety riddled teacher needed. He gave valuable tips for success and was able to break down strategies until I had a good understanding. Very positive experience during a high-stress time for me.

James was able to help my son with some last minute preparation for his AP Stats test on Sampling Variability and Sampling Distributions. He explained things clearly

Great Tutor

Helps me understand my honors geometry problems and theorems better. My grades have been better recently and I feel like I am understanding more of the new things that my teacher is teaching me. The tutoring has been great.
