About Jimmy

I have about 5-6 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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Piano

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).

Great Math Tutor!!!

Very flexible with scheduling and quick to respond to emails/texts. Jimmy has great patience and was quickly able to evaluate where my son was struggling in calculus. He improved not only his understanding of calculus, he worked on time management and tips for checking work over on quizzes and tests. He has a good personality and developed a great rapport with my son. His grade went from a D t
