About James

The idea of passing on knowledge I have acquired over the years is a part of the reason I enjoy tutoring. Obtaining my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering with a 3.5 GPA in four years, and now obtaining my Masters in Systems Engineering, I understand the major commitment it takes to grasp a subject, and the reward it brings knowing you were able to overcome the hurdle. I have been assisting peers with work since kindergarten when I was a “helping hand”, I continued on during High school by volunteering to help elementary school kids with math and reading. During my undergraduate years is where I obtain my first tutoring job, I held that position for 3 years, until I finally decided to stop to focus more on my co-op.

I tend to focus on S.T.E.M courses as my preferred subjects of tutoring because I truly enjoy them and want to help students do great in that area, but I also have experience in tutoring history and reading courses. These areas are historically weak areas for many standardized tests, my goal as a tutor would be able to show clear evidence of progress from each tutoring session. I have found out through the years, with patience, clearly breaking down the subject, and personal tutoring every child can have better grades.
I currently work full time so all tutoring hours will be afternoon hours unless Saturday or Sunday. I request a 48 hour cancellation notice so I might be able to fill the open slot, I understand that 48 hour notice is not possible at all times, and that is understandable.

The meeting location is open for discussion, I have no problem driving for the lessons or they can be held in a neutral location, such as a library I want it to be comfortable for the child so they will be most able to learn.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you gain success in your studies.

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 1

I have taken and made excellent grades in math starting in kindergarten and ranging to my completion of a recent course titled "Advanced Engineering mathematics".

Algebra 2

I am able to break down the material in a way a student can learn and apply to his/her work. I have tutored this course multiple times through the years, and all the students' grades have increased over the period of tutoring.

Chemistry

I have taken and made excellent grades in chemistry, starting in high school and continuing on to take the course on a college level. I have a through knowledge of the course not only from bookwork but from application in the engineering profession. Having a good understanding, allows the breaking down of the material to come much more naturally and allows me to pass on the material better to students.

Mechanical Engineering

I am a degreed mechanical engineer working in the field of aerospace where I am constantly using my skills to help the company achieve its goals of designing, building, and testing commercial and Military engines. During my college years, I constantly tutored my classmates in numerous classes which helped cement the principles in me. I am also enrolled in a "Master of Systems Engineering" Program at PSU.

Tutoring Skills — James is patient and hands on with my son. He is very professional and knowledgeable with Math. After just one lesson my son had a little more understanding and confidence in Math than he had all year. I would definitely recommend James to others. ...
