It's math, not magic

James C.
Hi. My name is Jim. I have a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering from Marquette University and another bachelor degree in math from Illinois State University. I have also attended summer classes for 4 years that taught me how to include real life situations in math curriculum. These classes also showed me different methods to teach math topics so that all students are able to comprehend the topics.

I have been teaching for the last 20 years. Before that I worked as a mechanical...

James has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **205 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Patient

Very patient and is willing to answer questions nicely. The writing was a bit iffy, but it was understandable since it was getting late. Occasional train in the background was a bit rough, but you can't really control that, so also understandable. Overall great.
