Yems H. GREETINGS!
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
My Name is Alessandro.

Group rates billed at time and a half. That is for a 2 hour session, it will be logged as 3 hours. You may bring as many students as you wish. Same day appointments have a 1 hour cancellation window.
Returning to study after many years out of school, I needed help with my chemistry class. Yems not only is very knowledgeable in chemistry but has the gift of being able to teach. Many tutors are very knowledgeable but few have the ability of Yems to brake down concepts in a simple manner very easy to understand.
My chemistry teacher makes the subject very complicated and difficult to understand. I learned and most importantly understood more in 2 hours with Yems that in an entire month of class. I will have Yems to help me to prepare for the Chemistry class with confidence of receiving a good grade and for the organic chemistry for the next semester.
I highly recommend Yems, you will not be disappointed.
It is my job to make learning simple, effective and even fun at times. I will give you all the tools you need to understand the sciences and thus be on your way to pass all your classes. Excellent job on following the plan.
Yems reviewed basic algebra processes including equations, graphs, linear functions, Pythagorean theorem and more. I found Yems to be a very knowledgeable and patient tutor and look forward to future sessions.
Explanations were thorough and Yems seemed very knowledgeable. He also provided great, clear notes. I would definitely recommend and work with this tutor again in the future.
Knowledgeable and patient tutor. Explains concepts well and makes material easy to understand. Excellent tutor. I look forward to working with Yems again on an ongoing basis through the duration of my Statistics course.
James is very, very, knowledgeable in organic chemistry. So much so, that he does not need a text book. Hard to believe, he comes to our sessions, asks for paper and takes off. One thing that he does, which helps me continue to remember past material is that while we are going over a certain topic, out of the blue, he asks questions from previous chapters, as to keep you on your toes. I highly recommend that anyone who is struggling with chemistry give him a try.
When I first contacted him it was great, he sounded professional which was great. He gave a reminder for the appointment and everything. The day of the session he arrived late. He sent me a message stating the arrival time at 12:07. When he finally sat down and started teaching it was 12:10 (I checked my phone other reviews said to keep track of time). The tutoring session was awkward, sure I understood what he was teaching but he was acting off.
It seemed like he was getting distracted by things going on around him. He would randomly wave at random people while he was teaching me things and make side comments about people who would walk in or go to the bathroom. When he would give me problems to solve on my own, he would sometimes interrupt with a conversation. It's nice to have an informal conversation to get to know the person better but not during a problem you are trying to solve. It felt that sometimes I was being rushed to give an answer when I would be thinking about it (there's a reason I have a tutor, I don't know everything and couldn't assist class for medical reasons). When I wouldn't give an answer he would put his head down and say "oh no.." which would make me feel uncomfortable, quite stupid and like if I had made the biggest mistake of my life.
I asked if he was okay but he didn't show much interest to my question. He would get up at random times to check on something he had plugged in or because he would get a call. Tutoring session ended at 12:16 (checked time again). He ended up charging me for a tutoring session from 12:05 to 12:20 and when I confronted him about it, he barely even changed the starting time. He just changed it to when he arrived. He's still overcharging me for services that weren't rendered. I'm a college student on a budget and 8 dollars is a lunch for me, since the session was $8 more, that is one less lunch I'll be able to have in school this week. I told him this and all he said"if you wish to meet again you can meet for 1.75 hours to even out" which still doesn't solve my problem! I'm still paying for more than I should. He's probably going to say that the times are incorrect and that he did try cooperating but it's not true, don't believe him! I have written proof of everything we both said. I wouldn't waste my time and money. While texting he said "logging off" meaning he didn't want to continue the conversation anymore even if I was still trying to explain my point.
The student chose a rather noisy public location for the session and I did the best possible under circumstances. The session was from 1207pm to 220pm, which is 2 minutes shy of 2 hours and 15 minutes. At times sessions will go over the allotted time, especially if the student is having difficulties. If I would have stopped and walked out at exactly 2 hours, then there still would be a complaint. The student is making an issue over 2 minutes when it was told to her that she would be given 15 free minutes to compensate. I do not socialize with students at all before, during or after a session.
This tutor has helped me grasp abstract concepts in organic chemistry. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and efficient in delivering all information on the material being covered. I found his teaching method through association to be a key factor for 100% recall when taking my tests. He is no doubt an excellent tutor.
Yems is one of the best tutor I have met. He takes his time to teach me what I need to know about the basic of statistics and making sure that I am using the correct formulas to solve my math problems. He is very devoted in help me to reach my goal and always on time to each session. I will highly recommend him to family and friends. Good guy excellent personality and attitude. He is god-sent!
Thank you Sylvia. Keep up that laser like focus you have and you will succeed in what you are determined to do and be. Best of luck.
I met with Yems today! And he made math a lot easier. He showed me every math problem step by step. And he did not move on to the next thing until I proved that I had learned how to do the math problem that we were on! Also he does not waste time! He was very fast. Once I was done understanding something he will move on to the next thing. I actually took the time to read some of the other students feedback and I don't agree with some of them. Also Yems was very professional. I already set up another appointment with him! And I always respect a man that serves our country. If you want to understand a subject, Yems is the tutor for it.
Thank you for your cooperation during the tutoring sessions. Your focused and concentration shows that you are serious about succeeding in taking and passing the ASVAB test. Count on me to take you over the edge to success!
My son requested he wanted to learn 2 column proofs in Geometry. Instead he started teaching him stuff he already knows in Geometry - basic stuff and wasted 2 hours.
This student did not understand the basic concepts of geometry. It is my job to make sure a student understands simpler topics before moving on to more complicated scenarios. If this is not done, it spells disaster. Sometimes parents do not understand this learning concept.
Thank you for your help introducing me to some principles of physics. Yems was very knowledgeable and thorough on his subject matter.
If there is any additional assistance I can provide, count on me. Thanks!
He would go each step and explain clearly the material. He is knows the material in detail also very energetic so there is not chance to fall asleep!
Thank you Ruth. Keep up the good work and in case you need further help in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am taking Chemistry 1033 and have been out of school for quite some time, I've met with Yems H. twice and I am scheduling another session, he is always on time and pleasant. Takes the time to explain and review. Also he makes sure one understands the material before moving on, and appointments are for 2 hours at a time so a lot of information is reviewed. I would Definitely recommend him. He is very smart and willing to teach shortcuts in order to understand things that are simple yet look complicated. Hope this helps when you are looking for a tutor!
As a returning student, you have a lot of challenges ahead. Do not despair, for I am an expert in getting you back on track so that you can understand and pass your classes. Count on me for your academic endeavors.
Yems is very knowledgeable in AP Statistics and Honors Physics. He taught me well. He was on time and professional.
Thank you. Your student is serious and dedicated to schoolwork, which are virtues in the learning process. Call on me if you need further assistance in the future.
My tutoring was a worthwhile and benefiting experience. The lesson was not only broken down into simpler terms but the information was now easier to grasp. Many well-written explanations and real-world examples contributed to this. I'd recommend Mr. Yems to any student looking to get a clearer understanding of his/her lesson(s).
Thank you Mr. H. Your daughter is on the correct path to science, all at a young age. I'm sure with the right teaching, she will go all the way and make both you proud. Best of luck.
Yems is a very knowledgeable algebra tutor. My son was able to understand him easily and he has improved nicely. We have not received my son's new grades as yet but we believe that his math grade will be much better. I would recommend Yems to any student who wants to improve his or her math skills. I am also considering asking Yems to tutor my son in chemistry as he is also very proficient in the sciences.
Thanks Yems! You Rock!
Your son shows signs of potential. He just needs to review notes more consistently. Every possible teaching technique will be given to him. If he follows my advise and plan, you will see positive results and improvement on grades.
I love the way that Mr. Yems teaches his subjects, he is really knowledgeable, patient and really cares for his students to learn. I truly recommend him, you will not be disappointed, he is really one of the bests tutors I found when I was in need of one in Chemistry. I give him a high score, if I ever need help again I would not hesitate to hire him again. Thank you.
Thank you Juan. Your hospitality at your home was most appreciated. Keep up the good work and great things will come your way in academics. We are here to help you in any way we can.
He is a great tutor. He knows everything he is teaching you and knows exactly how to provide an easy way to understand the material. Highly recommended if you need help.
Thank you. You are a set example on how students are supposed to be. Always on time, flexible, eager to learn, cooperative, serious about school. Keep up the good work and you will exceed.
I found him to be a very rude, arrogant person. It is his way or the highway. He is not a down to earth tutor. He solely is in this for the money. I agree with every other review on here. I would never use him and be warned he will try to stick you any way possible for money.
This student never spoke to me over the phone or met me in person. Communication was by text. She did not return phone calls, text me at 130am to make an appointment and then cancelled at the last minute. I have a policy and do follow it to the letter.
Our appointment was at 5:15 I arrived at the wrong place, and he was very impatient so he told me I only had 30 minutes to get to where he was; I drove like a maniac, I almost got into a crash and just as I called him at 5:45 he stopped answering calls, when I got to the place it was 5:47 and he was gone with no EXPLANATION, he just left. He ignored my 8 calls, and 3 text messages. He even charged me for no class? Pshh. And I agree with the girl, he was EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL, never had such awful experience.
The appointment was at Miramar town center. Its a very popular, centric location. There's a public library, a gym, stores, restaurants and Broward transit. Address and directions were given. Student said she knew the place. Not my fault if she was at the wrong place. I waited 30 minutes. I cannot wait indefinitely until a student decides to show up. If you are a person that is on time to your appointments and know your whereabouts, this will not be an issue.
I had a tutoring session with Yems and have to say that the individual is knowledgeable, however a bit unprofessional. We were scheduled for 9:45 am and he arrived at 10:20 with an "assistant", which was a bit uncomfortable since I was meeting him alone at a business center within my building complex. At the beginning of the session his "assistant" set up the phone to record or video, which made me feel weird and uncomfortable. Also, during the tutoring session his phone rang consistently, which was annoying and interuptive to the session. The entire experience was a bit weird to say the least. Last but definitely not least I scheduled a 2 hour session with him through phone conversation, online and through text, however he completed the session at 1:20pm(3 hours). I was caught by surprise when I looked at my phone, which I conscientiously put away at the beginning of the session so I had lost track of time. Basically, It seemed as Yems took advantage that I was not looking at the time and went over an hour. Long story, I would be very careful when hiring this tutor.
I totally disagree with this student.
First, I was 30 min late due to the extreme traffic and train delay. She was advised that I was going to be late and she said ok.
Second, I do not record my sessions. There is no purpose for this. I was charging my cell.
Third, students are supposed to keep track of the time during the session.
Fourth, my cell did ring, but it was ignored.
I treat my sessions very serious, there is no waste of time or side notes. I believe this students needs alot of help with or without me. The fundamentals were given to her. At times sessions go over the allotted time to finish a concept, especially if the student does not know the material.
Every possible accommodation was given to this student.
I have taught over 1000 hrs and have had great success.
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.
