About James

I'm a recent graduate and new to tutoring so this will be a learning experience for us both. I majored in zoology (but that does not mean I'm qualified to be a zoo keeper) and philosophy at Miami University. I have a very strong background in chemical and biological foundations of living systems, and I'm adept at a variety of humanities such as philosophy, psychology, anthropology, etc.

In my experience, learning hinges on one major factor: Interest. If you find a subject boring, it doesn't really matter how smart you are; It will be a pain to learn if you don't have the motivation to apply yourself. On the other hand, if you think something is mind-blowingly cool, then it becomes much easier and more enjoyable to take in the new information. Thus, my tutoring strategy is to bring interest and enthusiasm to the subject matter and help you to see that science is totally awesome. And that includes being able to make topics understandable in real-life contexts (i.e. I'll try to answer the proverbial question "why do I even need to know this stuff?").

As for me, I already love science. It's by far the most interesting, applicable, and useful subject in my life and it can certainly be the same for you. As a zoology major, I've taken classes in biology, ecology, botany, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, anatomy and physiology, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, cellular and molecular biology, and genetics. It's safe to say I know quite a bit about a lot of things scientific, and certainly enough to help someone new to a subject get interested and learn some really cool things about life.

I have an extremely flexible schedule for the time being, so just hit me up if you want to learn and we can work something out.
