University of Connecticut (Biomedical Engineering)
Hello! My name is James and I earned my B.S. in biomedical engineering at the University of Connecticut. I graduated magna cum laude from the Honors Program and will begin medical school in the fall. However while I'm still available it's my goal and privilege to help you succeed!
Experience: I have been tutoring for over eight years, with focuses in math, science, and music. I have experience tutoring students as young as 6 years old to college students. I've worked in a university-run tutoring center (UConn Q-Center), providing services in physics and mathematics. I can also provide lessons for piano as I have been professionally trained for over 11 years in classical piano.
My Method: When I am tutoring, I don't coach students through their work but rather prefer to allow their minds to explore the nature of the problem and focus on creative problem solving techniques. I believe that teaching mechanistic routines can help one succeed for a single exam but will not benefit you in the long run. My style forces the student to pause and think critically about the task at hand and will teach them to become resourceful and versatile. My process will not only produce immediate results but also fosters an environment where thorough understanding can be attained. I will work hard to get you or your child to a position of success but I should stress that you'll need to meet me halfway! Let's work together and get those grades up!
Please note: as a policy I always meet in a public area for at least the first lesson (typically the nearest library). If more private instruction is required please let me know and we can work out details to ensure a safe and professional environment. Hello!

James is super helpful and friendly! He will always work around your schedule and is willing to meet any requests! I had him as a tutor and he really helped explain all concepts thoroughly and with confidence. If there was ever a topic he was unsure of, he would research it that night and send an email explaining it in detail. I highly recommend his tutoring skills and I couldn't have gotten through calculus without him!
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.
I have a degree in biomedical engineering with a minor in electrical engineering. Relevant courses include: university level physics, electrical circuits, biomedical engineering measurements, engineering electromagnetics, digital fundamentals, and bioinstrumentation. Three of these courses included a complementary hardware design component. Additionally my senior capstone project was in the system realization of a breast cancer imaging system.
I have been trained professionally for 11 years by a master's graduate from the Manhattan School of Music. I have performed in concerts every year throughout my formal grade school education. Additionally, I have participated in five benefit concerts that have raised money towards causes that include: genocide prevention in Darfur, providing mosquito netting to the people in the Amazon Jungle, and lastly providing basic necessities for the impoverished in Bridgeport, CT. I am familiar with the works of Chopin (my specialty), Schubert, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, and many more.
