I am a recent graduate looking to spend time helping students develop confidence in mathematics. I enjoy and thrive on sharing a passion for solving problems and achieving a deep understanding of an important subject. Weather you need help to prepare for single a test or looking for help over a few months, I'm eager to help.

I have more than 250 hours working as a private tutor during four semesters of college. I tutor at every level between sixth grade math and Vector Calculus. I graduated in 2015 with honors in Mathematics from Occidental College in Los Angeles. I'm able to meet students in dorms, libraries, cafes etc.

The subjects that I tutor in include algebra one and two, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, three semesters of college level calculus, linear algebra, discrete math and middle school math. My students often develop strong studying and learning habits that they can carry with them across subjects and years.

Feel free to reach out to me to discuss subject matter that you may want help in. Please include some details about what you are studying, problems you are running into on your own and what you are looking for in a tutor.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

With my vast tutoring experience, I've seen that learning math is akin to learning a language. As such, a math student cannot be without a strong set of algebra tools, the same way that you cannot learn a language without knowing the basics. While in college, I amassed over 250 hours of tutoring experience for many students between 6th grade math and advanced calculus courses. Graduating with honors in mathematics in 2015 I bring excitement and experience to the tutoring table.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

In my many hours of tutoring experience, I have tutored extensively in calculus. Often in calculus, subject matter from high school algebra classes becomes essential. As a result, I have become more than adept at coming up with examples and helping students reach a deep understanding of the subject with the years ahead in mind.

I graded for calculus for two years in college. I passed the calculus AB exam in high school. I've helped several students further their understanding in calculus.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

In college my specialty was applied mathematics, which often required proficiency with basic concepts from calculus and pre calculus. Moreover many of my students have reported that my lessons one year have stayed with them for multiple years. This includes study habits and well taught concepts that continue to resurface in courses down the road.

Great algebra II tutor

James has given our daughter Frances much more confidence in just a few short weeks! It's so great to see her do her homework with ease. She is even helping some of her classmates! Could not have done it without his help.

Wendy, 4 lessons with James

Knowledgeable Tutor

James had been working with my son Ben to help him understand precalculus. My son is close to his finally and needs a lot of support. James is patient and works through the problems that Ben struggles with. James has ideas and strategies that he shares to help Ben relate to the work he needs to complete. He has been a great help.

Knowledgeable and helpful!

James has worked well with my son! Connor has only had two sessions so far but has enjoyed working with him. Definitely helpful in helping him understand Algebra 2. We certainly plan to have Connor continue working with James in the future. Highly recommended!
