About James

I have a bachelors degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Albany. I went on to complete a MS and PhD in physics from the University of Albany.

I then spent my career using math and physics in the real world. I eventually started my own companies and learned a great deal about business from experience. One company I started received an Inc 500 award. It is only in the past 5 years that I have transitioned to teaching.

I have taught Pre-Algebra through Calculus and Physics at the high school level at a private academy in Hawaii. I have also taught College Math, discrete mathematics, statistics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, business research, and quantitative analysis for MBA students. I really enjoy teaching all levels of students from middle school to adults returning for a college degree.

I enjoy teaching but I have found tutoring to be particularly rewarding. When I tutor I can focus on the individual problems. I work to find the problem areas and not just at the top level but at the root. What is the concept or procedure that is holding the student back? I try various ways to present and explain those underlying concepts. It is also less boring to the student since I am not spending all the time on concepts they understand. It is truly focused on the individual and overcoming each students unique stumbling blocks.
