About James

Hi, my name is James. As a physics major I have had to delve deep into the world of physics and mathematics. Math has always come easy for me because I've been lucky to have great teachers since I was young. They taught me the fundamentals of mathematics that carried me forward. I look to pass this forward to my students. I have worked as a learning assistant for Physics 2048 and 2049 at FIU. I have also tutored SAT/ACT/AP Tests. This is where I learned to work well with students one-on-one.

My method is simple: I walk students through exactly how a problem works, how to solve it, and why a solution looks a certain way. Then, I give students similar problems with varying levels of difficulty. If the students can see through my tricks, then I'm sure they've grasped the concept. My students keep coming back because this method is proven to work.

I am good at math because I understand how problems are developed logically. I pass this knowledge to my students. My students come out with a more thorough understanding of math that they can use for the rest of their lives. Many times students have problems with algebra because they don't really understand fractions. Or maybe they have trouble with calculus because they don't have a good understanding of geometry or trig. I will pinpoint the real problem and help to bring the student up to speed.

I have been tutoring physics for several years. I take pride in teaching people to understand the fundamentals of mechanics, waves, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism. I have taught physics labs at FIU and have tutored numerous classes from AP Physics, to subject tests, to college thermodynamics. My mathematical background allows me to understand how simple physics is. With proper guidance, ANY STUDENT can master it. I will provide such guidance.

Got trouble with cosines, vectors, integrals, word problems? I got you. Your one-stop-shop to an A is right here. This isn't homework solutions. This is the proper training that your professor isn't giving you. You will walk out understanding the problem so well, you could write it yourself. Hit me up.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

As a physicist and experienced tutor in calculus and differential equations, a thorough understanding of algebra is absolutely essential. I look forward to pass this understanding to my students as it is very useful in future mathematics and everyday problem solving.

Calculus

I have an excellent understanding of Calculus and its fundamentals in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. With a good basis in these subjects, ideas such as limits, derivatives, and integrals should be easy to understand with proper explanation and practice. Learning a new math is like learning a new language, I know. But I will be your guide to learning it correctly.

Differential Equations

I took differential equations in a 6 week summer course and got an A. During that time I tutored two failing students and helped them bring their grade up and pass. The professor can attest to my proficiency in the methods for solving ordinary differential equations.

Physics

I major in physics and have been confident in my teaching ability since Physics 1. Even as I was learning the subject, I helped my peers understand and solve problems when they got stuck. After introductory physics, I was hired as an assistant to the TA, teaching in the physics labs. Since then, I have taken many classes broadening my knowledge of the subject. I am proficient in the topics of kinematics, forces, energy, momentum, simple harmonic motion, moments, rotational systems, thermodynamics, wave mechanics, electricity and magnetism, nuclear physics, and basic quantum mechanics.
