Western Kentucky University (Business Administrat)
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.

My daughter has been tutoring with Mr. James for about a month. Her grade has greatly improved. He is very patient and very knowledgeable. He tunes in to how my daughter learns and does not stop until he is sure she understands the task at hand. He uses real world situations to explain complex math problems so that she can grasp the concept. He has made a world of difference in my daughter's confidence when it comes to tackling tough lessons. Mr. James is an excellent tutor.
Jame was able to develop a plan to counterattack different concepts involving math problems. Süperb teaching. Great professional. Clearly explained and discussed every single problem until the right answer was found. The focus and concentration skills shown by James were straight to the point.
James was very helpful and able to explain things in a way that made the math lesson easier to understand. This was the first tutoring session so we'll see what happens, hopefully my grades will improve.
James is extremely patient and makes sure I take my time and check my work when solving problems. Excellent experience.
First session went great! My daughter felt good about material that was covered and is looking forward to working with Jim to reach her goals!!!!
James was great the first time he met with my daughter. She agreed to continue with turning which I thought was going to be a struggle.
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 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.
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.
