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.

Great experience

I reached out to James for help with my daughter's 8th grade Algebra class. He was extremely responsive and helpful through the scheduling process and has been great with my daughter! After the first lesson, we scheduled a recurring weekly session. He is very patient and thorough.

Daniela, 3 lessons with James

Knowledgeable and patient geometry tutor

My daughter had a lot of anxiety surrounding math, especially geometry. After one session with Mr. James she began to feel more comfortable in her abilities. We are now on her 5th session and I have seen tremendous growth. He keeps me informed on her progress and collaborates with her teacher to bridge the learning gaps. I appreciate his patience, knowledge and professionalism. He’s warm, kind, and can definitely bring out the best in his students.
