After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a minor in Physics, I joined a major tech company, where I used math in performing my job responsibilities as a Systems Engineer.

My love of mathematics and teaching began during my high school days when I led classroom workshops in Algebra and and Geometry and tutored my peers. After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a minor in Physics, I joined a major tech company, where I used math in performing my job responsibilities as a Systems Engineer.
As my career progressed, I taught data communications concepts to customers. Later, I managed the curriculum content and education delivery of a segment of my company's sales and computer systems new hires training.
As a manager, I coached and developed my teams to meet our business objectives, again demonstrating the capability to develop and transfer skills.

I look forward to working with you to become proficient in mathematics. I will make an assessment of your current proficiency level and develop custom training modules to address your opportunity areas.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I worked in business as a Financial Controller for 22 years in which I used math daily to perform my duties. For the last three years I have successfully tutored math for students in Junior High School through Senior High helping them to improve from failing grades to excellent grades.

Algebra 2

I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. I worked in business as a Financial Controller for 22 years in which I used math daily to perform my duties. For the last three years I have successfully tutored math for students up to Senior High where Algebra 2 is generally studied. My tutoring experience has shown me that the root causes of the difficulties that Algebra 2 students have with the subject are skill gaps concerning topics that were not fully mastered in Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1. After assessing these skill gaps, I develop lesson plans tailored to address the past gaps while concurrently assisting with the more advanced topics.

I have been tutoring math courses included in the middle to senior high school curricula. Three students that I continually worked with from the start of middle school through their high school graduation excelled in honor math courses. All of the three graduated and were accepted in universities with academic honors and scholarships.
Prealgebra

I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and worked in business for a total of 44 years in positions that required strong mathematical skills to be successful. I have tutored students in Junior and Senior High School for the last three years. My tutoring experience has shown me the criticality of students getting a sound math foundation at the pre-algebra level in order for them to do well in more advanced math topics. Because of this critical need, I focus my lesson plans on providing the math basics that the current math curriculum in many schools have eliminated.

JOANN, 7 lessons with James

Patient and Professional

Math is a subject I always struggled with James has been such a big help working with me so that i better understand. He breaks the questions down in such a way that makes it easier for me. James is also very responsive when i have questions about any problems with my math homework. I’m much more confident in Math now.

Excellent Math Tutor!

James is a very knowledgeable, engaged, patient, and dedicated math tutor. He is currently assisting our 6th grade son study for the math placement tests for 7th grade and in just two weeks, we have seen his knowledge grow through several weekly diagnostic tests and with James' continued help, we feel he will be more than ready for his upcoming tests. We can't thank James enough for what he has accomplished thus far. Highly recommend.

Helpful and very patient

Mr james gave great tips and was very helpful and patient in explaining the problem. Gave very useful tools on understanding the problem. After an hour he can see where the problem areas are.

Organized, knowledgable, and responsive

James has been teaching my son 4th grade math, to strengthen my son's abilities. My son has had 9 lessons with James. James is excellent, I highly recommend him. He is thoughtful, organized, patient, responsive to questions from me as a parent, and my son really likes him. James adjusts his approach to my sons ability. And he is willing to refine his approach based on parent feedback. You won't regret hiring James as a tutor.

Ed, 52 lessons with James

Knowledgeable and patient

James was very knowledgeable about how he showed my son the meaning of math and what adding, subtraction, divining, and so forth meant. Just being able to give him the core understanding of math, I think, was the best way to start the tutoring session.

Nedra, 1 lesson with James

Great Tutor. A+

Chris, 14 lessons with James

Thorough explanations and helpful revisions.

Recently I’ve struggled a bit with Quadratics in my Math semester and I had homework I was unsure about however I completely understood everything after this tutor session. Highly recommend.

Matthew, 2 lessons with James

Amazing tutor!

James is an extremely competent tutor for Excel spreadsheets, charts, and graphs. He utilized excel formulas and then depicted the data in charts and graphs. He communicates very effectively and listens to detail. He also provided worksheets which detailed the formulas so I would understand the methods. James deserves the highest ranking of 5 for tutors and I would definitely use him as a tutor again. Thank you!
