Education is my passion! I have recently taught high school science and enjoyed every minute of it. My experience in teaching and tutoring extends nearly ten years. I have tutored hundreds of students not only in elementary, high school, and college academic settings, but private home sessions as well.
Education is the pathway to opportunity and success. My ultimate goal is to help break down any barrier standing in your way to achieving this success.
I tutor statistics, biology, algebra, geometry, probability, chemistry, English grammar, and a wide range of other subjects. Just ask! My style of tutoring is highly effective, and sessions are well planned. Every second of your lesson is catered to your success!
My aura is positive, inspirational, motivational, and peaceful. I hold extremely high academic expectations and want every student to become confident in their subject immediately after our first few sessions.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My hobbies are volunteering, practicing piano, leisure reading, solving challenging math and science questions, visiting zoos and nature centers, listening to educationally inspiring debates in business, economics and politics, practicing Swedish, and spending quality time with friends and family.

The first thing I noticed about James was that he focused on the positive things that my son was doing and didn't harp on the negative. Whenever my son struggled through a lesson James made a note of it and made appropriate adjustments. My son has gained so much confidence after just a couple of sessions with James. James goes above and beyond with his summary communications of how the sessions are going which is a tremendous help because my son and I live in different states and James makes sure to always keep me in the loop with everything! He not only tutors my son but he also provides us with personal assessments on he colleges that we are interested in and he makes surentonfo us on what those colleges are looking for from an ACT testing perspective. A++ tutor!
That is what my son said about James! He is learning so much and his comprehension has greatly increased!
James have tutored my son for the summer in algebra1 and geometry. James is very patient and knowledgeable of math. I'm confident that James has prepared my son for the next level of his education
James is truly dedicated to his students. He sincerely cares about their success. He not only teaches, but motivates and encourages students to do their best.
He helped my daughter excel past her comfort level,and do better in her college algebra.I am so glad we chose him as a tutor.
James is currently tutoring our son in chemistry and his first session went very well. Our son was able to gain a much better understanding of his subject material in just the first session. James was professional and made an easy connection with our son. We look forward to seeing our son's learning curve improve under James's instruction.
Fantastic tutoring experience. James was patient, kind, polite and took time to explain all of the material that I found difficult to understand.
I can't say enough about James. First of all, of all the tutors I contacted through this site, James was the only one who replied back. That says a lot about his character!! In only a few tutoring sessions, he helped my daughter's statistics grade go from a C to a B!! James promised to go "the extra mile" to help her and that's exactly what he did. He took the time to figure out what she needed help with and structured the sessions around her needs. Even after the final session (the day before her final exam), he told her if she had any questions he would come back to the house to help, no matter how late. We are so grateful we found James. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a wonderful, reliable, patient and knowledgeable tutor!!!
James is a tremendous help as a tutor. He has great insight in Prob. & Stats. He has excellent communication skills and he knows what he is talking about. He has certainly helped me.
James arrives well prepared and organized to take advantage of the full hour. He does a great job of understanding what your child's current ability is and where the opportunities are. His love for Math is evident when you talk to him and he and my son have gotten off to a terrific start!
James is an excellent tutor. He's very knowledgeable in all things relating to math and he is extremely patient. I highly recommend him.
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.
My experience in tutoring algebra and other math subjects is rich! I have been employed multiple years in both colleges and elementary schools teaching and tutoring students in math and science.
Over the last seven years I have tutored hundreds of students in math, from children to adults. I have received many awards and certificates for excellence in tutoring. I have also received extensive tutoring training that highly qualifies me to help students with learning disabilities succeed in math.
Biology is my passion! I currently hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and have a strong appreciation for the life sciences. I have a deep understanding of every biological concept you are likely to come across in a biology course. I have tutored hundreds of high school and college students in biology over the last seven years. I am highly qualified and capable to discuss any biological science topic at an advanced level.
As a biology major during college, I had to take many chemistry courses. In fact, a great amount of biology actually requires a strong understanding of chemistry. Over the last seven years I have tutored hundreds of high school and college students in chemistry.
I have a tremendous amount of experience teaching and tutoring Elementary Math. For multiple years I have worked in elementary and grammar schools with the sole responsibility of helping academically struggling schools increase their math scores.
Whether the elementary math is being taught from a textbook, or taught from a special online program, I have had lots of experience teaching and tutoring all age ranges in elementary math.
To speak or write with perfect English grammar only takes patience and practice. I have been studying English grammar at an advanced level for the last decade. I have also worked at colleges and elementary schools as a tutor helping students succeed in English. I have lots of experience teaching Standard English grammar and proofreading essays.
Regardless of one's dialect or educational background, I am highly qualified to prepare him or her to immediately begin speaking and writing with perfect English grammar.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and have conducted genetics research at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. A genetics course was one of the required core courses for my major. Also, most of the courses I have taken in biological science covered varying amounts of genetics instruction and overlap. Finally, genetics is my most fascinating discipline of biology, and I have spent a great amount of time interpreting genetics concepts and solving application problems. Finally, I have years of experience tutoring biology, in which genetics problems have come up.
