Dear Students, I am an experienced high school math and science teacher with a heartfelt desire to assist you in becoming a better student. In brief, I taught high school math and physical science for 5 years in a private Christian school in Honduras. While working as a teacher, I tutored numerous students after school and on Saturdays and continue to tutor students on a regular basis now. My students uniformly do better because they have one-on-one opportunities to understand what they are doing wrong and to make adjustments in their thinking before testing. My basic method is to have them identify the types of problems that are giving them difficulty and watch while they work a sample problem. As they do each step, I observe their work and if they do something wrong, I stop them and ask them to explain why they did what they did. This helps them to correct their thinking. Sometimes I simply work a few of the problems and let the student observe. Then I watch as they do the assignment and guide them as necessary. I let the student choose any method that helps them the most based on their own learning style. With me, the student basically sets the agenda and I help them achieve their goals.
I have always loved to see students really understand the material so I devote lots of preparation time to make that happen to the greatest degree possible. You will find me to be patient, encouraging, passionate about my work, organized, and ready on day 1 to help you become successful. Here are some other items of information that you may like to know: 1. I am an honor graduate with a BS in math from Auburn University, 2. I taught naval engineering 2 years at Duke University, 3. I am a graduate of the Navy's nuclear power and electronics schools, and 4. I also graduated from Florida State University College of Law with honors. I would welcome an opportunity to help you become a better student and hope you will give me that chance.
Very scholarly and knowledgeable
Mr. Jim is an excellent tutor. He takes the time to make sure that I understand what I am doing! Since being tutored by Mr. Jim I received my first 100 on my advance math test. I could not have completed this goal without him!Phyllis , 7 lessons with Jim
Very patient and knowledgable
He taught me how to solve right angles and parallelograms so far. He is very patient and great at explaining things. Always comes prepared.Mallery, 8 lessons with Jim
Jim's great! He was extremely knowledgeable and my middle school daughter was relaxed and comfortable with him.
Jim's preparing my daughter for 8th grade math and working to get her ahead over the summer before the school year. He's knowledgeable and was well prepared for the lesson. He provided me immediate feedback on her knowledge and effort and I'm extremely happy with what he as done so far with my daughter.Greg, 22 lessons with Jim
Very patient, always available, easy to schedule
I was falling behind in analytic geometry, and he helped me bring up my grade as well as my understanding and confidence. I'd give his name out to anyone, he is a great help.Mahalia, 5 lessons with Jim
I do not really have a lot of to write except to say that Jim D is an excellent tutor who obviously has a many years of experience teaching because he has a very calm demeanor and he has a lot of patience when explaining the problems that we are working on during our sessions. I find both of these traits very admirable in a math mentor.Steve , 6 lessons with Jim
Jim is excellent! He helped me prepare for a pre-calculus placement exam. He really went above and beyond to make sure I understood the material we were covering and he was kind enough to write out and explain sample problems (to take home and study) that I had some difficulty with. He is someone who truly has a passion for math and wants to see you succeed.Sierra, 1 lesson with Jim
The tutor helped a lot. I now understand my course a lot more in much better detail. I recommend him again if I need help. Overall the tutor was excellent in every way. Thank you.Juwann, 1 lesson with Jim
Excellent in all respects
Jim was my son's math tutor for several weeks. My son worked great with him, and established a quick relationship that had him almost looking forward to the tutoring sessions. Jim showed great flexibility in working with us on scheduling. He was excellent in every respect. Highly Recommended.Roger, 19 lessons with Jim
