About James


Bio

I have an electrical engineering degree from BYU and have spent six years substitute teaching or tutoring. I love helping people understand new things, and have been 'translating' between teachers and students since I was in elementary school.

I try to adjust my tutoring to the style a given student seems to learn from best. One thing I do try to be consistent about is allowing students to do as much as they can with what they know already, and then providing support or instruction when it...

I have an electrical engineering degree from BYU and have spent six years substitute teaching or tutoring. I love helping people understand new things, and have been 'translating' between teachers and students since I was in elementary school.

I try to adjust my tutoring to the style a given student seems to learn from best. One thing I do try to be consistent about is allowing students to do as much as they can with what they know already, and then providing support or instruction when it is needed. I find this helps students to remember knowledge or skills later on exams or in-class assignments.

I am very person focused. Let me know what your goals are and I will strive to help you to achieve them, and then surpass them. I look forward to meeting you.

Physics has fascinated me since I picked up a book on particle physics in sixth grade that had concepts I didn't see again until I got to college. I have minored in this subject at BYU and am now a senior in electrical engineering. I have been tutoring physics for over 5 years.

My emphasis in physical science is obviously in the physics part of it, but I have also taken courses on the earth science and chemistry aspects, and enjoy all three. I got a 36 on the science portion of the ACT while in high school.

Excellent

James helped my son do homework and test review for his physics class. He is now ready for his exam and very grateful for his knowledge and teaching methods. James has a clear ability to tutor well.

Sarah, 4 lessons with James

Professional and honest.

James was prompt, courteous and very easy to understand. He assisted my Granddaughter with beginning to understand logs which was very complex to her. By the end of the weekend she was working the more complex problems on her own without assistance. Thank you.

Cassandra, 1 lesson with James

Very good lesson - Knowledgeable and experienced tutor.

James covered the lesson material efficiently and accurately. He helped my daughter understand basic Newtonian principles and helped apply them to her homework.

John , 6 lessons with James

Knowledgeable tutor

James explained all the concepts my son needed to know for his physics test and made sure he understood. He was a lot of help.

Arlen , 1 lesson with James

Excellent 2nd session

James was extremely helpful with my son. He explains and teaches concepts and material in an understandable and helpful manner.

Randy, 3 lessons with James

Should have hired him a long time ago!

James is very knowledgable and was able to explain concepts to my son in a way that he could easily understand. Wonderful!
