James has ability to deliver clear information and directions. Even confusing complicated problems make sense after time spent tutoring with James. I Saved time on DS and PS topics of GMAT

James was very understanding of my need to push my tutoring session back by a few minutes. He is easy to communicate and coordinate with. I have only had one session but he was extremely positive and gave me good study habits to think about. I look forward to our next sessions. He is also very encouraging!

James knows the subject matter for econ and stats very well and helped break down each topic into something a lot more easier to understand. He's also really friendly and shows up on time every time! Highly recommended!!

I learned a semester worth of microeconomics theory within 4 hours. James answered all my questions and helped me do all the math questions thoroughly.

Jim is truly a very gifted teacher with the ability to make learning fun and interesting. Our 18 yr old son looked forward to every session he had with Jim and he always came out with a smile on his face and would say "Jim is so awesome!" It was almost like a therapy session because he enjoyed it so much. It didn't matter what they worked on together, Jim is just so knowledgeable and spontaneous that he could talk about anything without preparation. We highly recommend Jim - he really has a special gift that enables him to connect with a student in a remarkable way.

James did an exceptional job in helping me understand various concepts ranging from precalculus and economics. He is a very knowledgeable tutor, who always tries to help me understand every concept fully and thoroughly. I could not ask for a more helpful, and enjoyable tutor!

Jim has been extremely helped with preparing me for the GMAT. He teaches the material in a very effective way.

We reviewed a recent test and discussed a variety of topics including why GDP measures final goods and services (to avoid double counting), the difference between gross and net investment (depreciation), how price floors can create surpluses, price ceilings can create shortages, while neither exist at equilibria.

Covered probability & rate/work problems--we covered additional problems beyond my GMAT textbook problems, which were helpful to me. Jim was able to break things down and offer additional explanation.
