About James

I have a degree in Business Administration from Western Kentucky University and have taught math in four high schools over the past 15 years. In each class that I taught there were outstanding students. And there were others who struggled. My greatest pleasure has been in helping those who have had difficulty, seeing them come to understand, and finally gain success over the curriculum.

Many of my most successful students have taken advantage of tutoring opportunities. Often, just short one-on-one tutoring sessions have provided insight and understanding that could not be gained in a classroom setting.

Before beginning my teaching career I managed and supervised companies and individuals in many private sector industries. I bring that practical knowledge to my teaching experience. I understand and can relate to most real-world situations, word problem examples, and conceptual problems presented in math tests and homework assignments.

Please contact me for a further explanation of my qualifications and how I might relate to your needs.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 2

I have taught Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Algebra 2 Honors in three different Florida High Schools. My students have passed the state exams with a 94% passing rate and have been able to move into higher level math classes fully prepared for the rigors and challenges those classes present.

Geometry

I have taught both informal and regular geometry courses. While I was teaching, my students scored a 97% passing rate on the Geometry End of Course Exams.
