I'm an alumnus of Tougaloo College (Mississippi), where I majored in mathematics/computer science. I graduated with a 3.89 cumulative GPA (summa cum laude, class valedictorian). During high school, I scored in the 97th percentile on the military ASVAB exam. I recently scored the maximum (200) on the Praxis core math exam.

Caring and dedicated
My son has struggled in math since middle school, and in his first year of high school, failed Algebra I and had to repeat the course during the summer term. At the end of the second week (of five), my son had a D average. It was at that point that we contacted James for help. From the beginning, James demonstrated how dedicated he is to teaching, spending "bonus" time with my son to ensure he understood the concepts. James also made flash cards, gave my son math websites for review, and provided him with sample problems to practice at home. James was always available when we needed him, helping my son to prepare specifically for upcoming exams. In the last week of summer school, my son scored a 93 and 94 on his final exams, pulling his grade up to a B--an 84 average. James says he does not work miracles, but his methods worked to build my son's confidence and to turn things around in a short period of time. James showed how much he cared about my son's success, letting him know when he was doing well and when he was falling short. I could not have asked for a better tutor for my son. I highly recommend James services for your student.

Excellent Math Tutor
James is helping my son understand Trigonometry concepts. His is positive and encouraging with my son. Also, James seems to have an excellent understanding of teenage boys.

Great!
Very grateful to James for giving our high school freshman the extra support he needed once a week to salvage a flagging grade in high honors math (accelerated Algebra 2). Would recommend to anyone. As a parent, I also really appreciated his clear communication and flexibility.

Very precise and to the point!
He’s very knowledgeable and doesn’t waste any time. Also, he’s helpful and makes sure you understand every step of the way. You’re awesome! I will be booking more sessions in the future.

On time, Knowledgeable and Patient
He taught the ISEE Math for my son -- 14-year-old boy. He is very nice and patient. This is our first online class by using Wyzant. He taught us step by step how to use Wyzant. He explained me very clearly how the class will go on. After the class, he gave a comment and recommended what my son and I have to follow up for the next class. And also he gave the handout of the first class for my son which my son told me that is really helpful. It is really a good start.

Passionate about children's education
After just one session, my son is more confident and is excited about learning more from James. Before meeting James, he felt he would fail. We have already booked extra sessions.

GREAT SSAT Tutor
James is a great SSAT tutor. He patiently explains concepts to me and helps me work through problems. We have covered a lot of concepts over the past 45 days and I feel much more confident in my math skills as a result of the work I have done with James. He has also gone out of his way to find additional material for me to study on specific concepts that we have gone over - every lesson he sends along helpful links to material that is available on the web. James has also helped me with my regular school math and my test scores have meaningfully improved since I started working with James. He is very flexible in scheduling and has always found time to help me whenever I have needed it. I cannot be more thankful for having has the opportunity to work with James.

Great Algebra 2 Lesson
This was our first experience with Wyzant. James is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. It was a great experience. He was able to explain all of the areas of concern and provide additional helpful resources online for learning. We will be using him regularly from now on for math tutoring.

Great personality and very efficient.
I've sought out for SAT math tutoring, and I stumbled across James on Wyzant, and I'm extremely glad I did. James is extremely knowledgeable in the field of math, and is extremely patient with students. Not only does he know his stuff, but his personality immediately puts the student at ease. The first time I had a lesson with James, any apprehension or anxiety I had disappeared. I highly recommend this tutor for SAT math, and other math subjects.

Praxis Expert
I was terrified approaching the Core Math Praxis, as I am not a math person by any means. I found James through Wyzant, and in just six sessions we reviewed an entire math Praxis practice book. James provided me with the tools and strategies I needed to pass the Praxis the first time!! He is patient, understanding, and gives you more than one way to arrive at an answer. It was his guidance and expertise that allowed me to learn the necessary material to pass this test. I never thought in a million years I would take any kind of math test and pass the first time. Thank you so much for your unwavering commitment, support and effort.
