I am a trained physician, although not completed my residency, who loves teaching/tutoring and have done so since I was in high school. I am highly experienced, professional and quite patient. I've taught students at all levels and from all walks of life, including medical, nursing, graduate, undergraduate, and high school students. In addition, I have tutored middle school students, as well as elementary and kindergarten students.

Moreover, I provide exceptional tutoring services to students of all ages and skill levels and specialize in creating tailor-made solutions for all types of learners. I offer several specific types of tutoring (such as back to basics, study skills, etc.) and customize my session (s) to meet the needs of each unique student.

MCAT Prep (FYI): I am very familiar with the new MCAT and have tutored students for the new MCAT since it began in 2015. In fact, as a trained physician, I like the new test better than the old one because it's geared, mainly, towards medical school unlike previously. Now, many, if not most, of the topics covered on the new MCAT and/or are expected to know will be covered in some of your medical school courses (so learn them well); and the test set up is very similar to the USMLE, which is the boards that all medical students take and must pass before they are licensed to practice medicine.

Lastly, I teach CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), HHA (Home Health Aide), CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), CEU's (Continuing Education Units), CME's (Continuing Medical Education units), In-services, etc. YOUR SATISFACTION IS 100% GUARANTEED OR YOU MONEY BACK!!!!

Special Needs

I have been teaching for over 17 years and have worked with many diverse types of learners. I was a Special Education teacher for many years in Boston, MA, and have worked with all ages and taught at all levels. During these experiences, I worked with students with a range of disabilities including Autism, learning disability, ADHD, communication disorder, multiple disabilities, etc. I have experience using a range of curriculum, including Words Their Way, SPIRE, Foundations, Guided Reading, Leveled Literacy Intervention, Writing Workshop, Reading Workshop, etc. I also have experience with a range of assessments. I am very passionate for the education field and constantly enjoy learning more about how to help students grow in life. In order to create an atmosphere where students can build a love for learning, I believe it is important to have education be fun and engaging . Also, I strong believe that instruction should be based on the student's, interests, needs and learning style. So, I've tried to include hands-on and multi-sensory learning.

Extremely patient, knowledgeable, and kind

Dr. James has an amazing amount of knowledge and guidance to offer! I truly believe he wants to see all of his students succeed. He explains things clearly and won't move on until he's sure you understand the concept. I recommend him for any kind of tutoring, and I'll definitely be meeting with him again to prepare for the GRE! Truly an inspiring teacher.
