About Jimmy


Bio

I have about 7-8 combined years of tutoring experience throughout different periods in my life. Aside from in-home private tutoring, I've tutored for the Boston University Upward Bound program for a few years, the MATCH charter school for one year, and the Nativity Preparatory School for one year. Before going back into tutoring in September of 2014, I had about 4 years of working in the corporate world as a technical sales trainer and then as a technical project manager. Both corporate...

I have about 7-8 combined years of tutoring experience throughout different periods in my life. Aside from in-home private tutoring, I've tutored for the Boston University Upward Bound program for a few years, the MATCH charter school for one year, and the Nativity Preparatory School for one year. Before going back into tutoring in September of 2014, I had about 4 years of working in the corporate world as a technical sales trainer and then as a technical project manager. Both corporate roles involved teaching and mentoring to a great extent, and then I realized that tutoring and mentoring in general were to be a key part of my life!

Since my educational and professional backgrounds are largely technical, my tutoring focus has been in the maths and sciences. But as I've taken 6 years of Latin in high school with 2 of those years being at the AP level (Vergil and Ovid) and then 1 semester of Latin in college, I was able to also add Latin to my subject offerings.

There are many paths to learning the abstract syntax and concepts of any subject. Therefore, my style focuses solely on the individual, working with their strengths to help them learn the subject and continuously honing their weaknesses on the side so that they eventually have other methods available to them to proactively learn new material on their own.

I have studied piano for 10 years at Boston University and my passion has always been music since my teens. I perform in public whether for friends at parties or at ceremonies (such as weddings). In late September of 2014, I quit my full-time job to continue my musical education and I am currently auditing at Boston University a couple advanced courses in Piano Literature (analyzing repertoire from the early Baroque period up until now) and Piano Pedagogy (analyzing different teaching methods used by famous teachers/composers throughout history and the effectiveness of each style in teaching today's students of all ages).

Mid term Quiz - Algebra, Trig and Geometry

Jimmy is very reliable, even with given a very limited notice. Due to his tutoring skills and knowledge, my son has improved tremendously mathematical skills, which had lead to a better grade.

Kate, 19 lessons with Jimmy

Excellent teacher, patient and knowledgeable.

I worked with Jimmy for two hours on calculus. He was patient, and his explanations were very clear and made sense to me. He made the concepts easy to understand. I am definitely going to work with him again.

Wonderful Tutor - for our Sons in High School for the Past 2 Years

We are really grateful for Jimmy : he is patient, nice and can relate very well with a teenager. My son looks forward to the sessions with him. He has tutored those different courses: Geometry Physics Chemistry Algebra PSAT/SAT In each he clarified key concepts with his in depth knowledge and helped my son be more confident. Last PSAT, my son received close to a perfect score in Math thanks to Jimmy's guidance, explanations and strategy techniques. Jimmy has been really flexible in fitting last minute extra sessions before key tests. We highly recommend him!

Great Latin tutor.

Jimmy has been invaluable to my son this year. He was very good at being able to hone in on the specific items that he was struggling with and addressing them. My son became a much more confident and successful Latin student with Jimmy's help. I would highly recommend him.

Really nice and friendly teacher. He could answer most of the very hard questions. Explanations are really good, and easy to understand.

Great working with Jimmy.

Jimmy helped by son during an accelerated 6 week online pre-calculus class. Jimmy really related well to my son and was great to have around. Always super responsive to email and easy to work with. My son successfully completed his class with an excellent grade. I will happily call on Jimmy again for his services if I ever need them again.

Excellent tutor: knoweldgeable, patient, and good humored.

My son loves Jimmy. From the first time they met, my son felt that Jimmy explained math and algebra concepts better than his teacher had been doing. Jimmy is patient and friendly and makes my son comfortable and ready to learn. Jimmy has helped my son bring his math grade up significantly, to a level that expresses his true capabilities if he is taught well - which is what Jimmy does: teach well.
