About Jim

Hi, my name is Jim and I was a high school science teacher for the past twenty years....I have experience teaching chemistry, chemistry 2, physics, biology, physical science and earth science all at the high school level and I love science. I recently retired from my position at a high school with 600-800 students. I have mainly taught classes in chemistry and physics but have taught biology in the past. Some of my most rewarding moments over the years have come when assisting students in a one on one setting and helping them to understand difficult concepts.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 always taught science, but I enjoy algebra and use it frequently in teaching other subjects.

Biology

Although I do not presently teach biology, my undergraduate degree is in biology and I can help any high school student understand biological concepts.

Chemistry

I have experience in all areas of chemistry. I have taught general chemistry to high school students, as well as organic chemistry to nursing students.

Organic Chemistry

I have taught general chemistry at the high school and the community college level. I have also taught organic chemistry to nursing students at community college level.

Great First Session

My son felt he learned a great deal in just one session with Jim and felt confident in taking a quiz the following day. Jim was timely, communicated well, and certainly knew the subject. Will sign up again!
