About Jim

During my 44 year career of teaching Math At Pendleton Heights High School, I taught Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Some years, I taught all three during the same school year. This allowed me to connect the subject matter to the next level knowing what skills they would need the most.
I also taught Algebra at Ivy Tech Community College for 10 years twice a week in the evening. This allowed me to really know and understand what skills young adults lacked from their high school career and what skills they would need as they prepared to enter the work force. Many of these students were a year or two away from a career in nursing, computer technology, or other fields.

I have taught such a broad spectrum of math students with different abilities. I have been able to challenge them to do their best. And at the same time I can alleviate their fears of Math with a philosophy that "There is no stupid question". I have a very high level of patience through my career. I have often been tabbed as their very favorite teacher throughout their 12 year school career.

I retired "early" because of my Mother's failing health. Now that she is in a nursing home, I am totally flexible with my schedule to meet with you in your home, the library, or wherever would be suitable for you. My hours are also flexible.

Great tutor

Jim is covering Algebra I as well as the start of Geometry. He has advanced my weak spots in algebra one and will continue to do so while adding the geometry. He is always pleasant and a very interesting person. This is the second tutor we had but definitely the best.
