About James

I have taught introductory and AP physics at an elite boarding school in CT for the past four years and have recently moved to the Bay Area. I am young and enthusiastic and enjoy the opportunity to help students not only understand physics, but to grow to enjoy it. I believe that Physics is the most basic of the sciences and once students get past the daunting title of the course that they really begin to enjoy the subject matter as it explains all that is happening around them. I welcome the opportunity to help any students who may be struggling in Physics or in math and am confident that I can help them gain confidence and an understanding of the material.

Approved subjects

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.

JavaScript

I work as a UI developer working every day with HTML, CSS, javascript, React and more. I taught physics for five years, so am very comfortable with helping students of all abilities understand new topics. I completed an intensive program called Startup Institute in Boston to improve my skills and that helped me become fluent in Javascript and utilize tools like Git, Angular, React and more. I believe that working as a developer who creates websites and apps utilizing React paired with years of teaching make me an ideal candidate to help students improve their knowledge of Javascript.
