## Exceptional teacher

Shantih, 27 lessons with YemsReturning 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...

GREETINGS!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

My Name is Alessandro.

I first started teaching back in 1990 at MDCC Medical Campus (Miami, Fl.) as a teacher assistant. My college background is PRE-MED. Suffice to say that I went all the way in school, as far as taking all my courses and took the MCAT, which I scored high. However, I decided to pursue an educational career and help others.

I now specialize in teaching math & science. I consider myself an expert and an...

## Smart Tutor - Great review

On time and great lesson plan. Well worth it Did a great job explaining a very hard subject for me….

## Amazing Tutor, and extremely smart.

If it wasn’t for James I would not have passed General Chemistry. I had absolutely no idea what I was learning in the class on week 1 and that’s when I knew I needed to find a tutor ASAP. James reached out when I was in the process of looking and he immediately met with me that same day and the days following that I needed his help. He broke everything down step by step something I wasn’t shown in class. He actually gave me the knowledge I needed to make it through and survive this coarse. He gives you concepts with real life situations and that’s how I relate because I am a visual learner. When it came down to studying for my final questions for my final exam he knew everything and he prepared me for my exams. Not only does he know how to teach this complicated coarse of chemistry but also challenges you so you can truly understand the concept of everything and not only how but why. He worked with my schedule without hesitation and he was extremely punctual. The time he makes his appointments he made sure to be here, and even a few minutes earlier. I am extremely thankful and grateful for his support and time through this difficult coarse. I had to learn everything in one month and he accomplished that. He is extremely sweet and I highly recommend him for anyone that needs help understanding chemistry not just doing it and surviving but truly getting it. He has an immense amount of knowledge and he is dedicated and compassionate about his work. I am even considering reaching out to him again for microbiology as well, and I look forward to the tutor sessions I will possibly have with him in the near future.
