My specialty is math, which according to the MA DOE, is the most challenging content area for 95% of GED/HISET test-takers.

My hourly rate is reasonable but I'm willing to consider adjusting it for highly motivated students contingent on a 2 hour session.

Great lesson today!

My son is struggling with an online course, Jim is helping him break it down to learn it. He’s found other source work to help him practice and is very patient.

Patient tutor

I can be very challenging to work with on math problems. James took the time to learn and adapt to my style, his patience with my learning disabilities made it comfortable. Looking forward to more sessions.

Math review

James helped me review for accuracy on my graduate class work. On problems I had difficulty with we reviewed the process on how to find the correct answer. Was easy to work with and set up a tutoring time

Tara, 1 lesson with James

Very patient and knowledgeable

James has been very helpful in getting my son prepared for the ASVAB. He goes above and beyond and is excellent with communication. James has made concepts easy to understand and is very knowledgeable about the test and testing strategies.

Bree, 10 lessons with James

Friendly and knowledgable.

We worked on sentence correction and developed a plan for follow up lessons. James also provided me with lessons to work on independently. This first session was very helpful as it helped me identify my learning style.

Great tutor, extremely knowledgeable in Hiset/GED MATH!!!

James was able to help me understand how to take and pass the Hiset exam! I took the test without tutoring and failed my first try scoring a 7 on the exam. Over the course of a month tutoring with James I was able to double my score to a 14 and achieve a passing score! This gentleman knows what he's talking about! Thanks, James.

Andrew, 10 lessons with James

Knowledgeable and patient

James is teaching me the core algebraic concepts to prepare for the math portion of the HISET exam. He seems to have a lot of knowledge and patience. I look forward to working with him more.
