“**All smiles for Nira!**”

I have the following experiences in working with students in Mathematics, STEM, sports, and church over the past 50 years. I taught more than 40 days as a substitute Mathematics teacher in Prince Georges County Public Schools in grades 4-12 during 2011-2012 school year. I observed

Mr. James is great! Today was his first day with my daughter, i have never seen her so happy about doing math before. She is looking forward to learning more from Mr. James. She is so happy, i'm happy for her.

Today was the first time she didnt get frustrated about doing homework! all smiles, Thank you.

This was his first session with my daughter. The primary focus was 3rd grade math. I feel confident that Mr.James will take her to the next level or above her grade level. The one thing I liked about Mr. James is he came in and didn't waist anytime and keep her thinking outside of the box at all times. When it was time for him to leave my daughter was not happy!! He made learning FUN

Mr James is simply a God send for my son. His patience is simply remarkable. My son is currently under going transition to high school and Mr James has been able to meet him where he is by making Andrew more responsible for his work. He helps Andrew break down his difficulties instead of just showing him. I appreciate Mr James's dedication to making sure Andrew not only understands but that he also is able to work the math problems manually. Mr James will also be helping my daughter who is a college student this spring. We are really happy with this joint venture.

Mr. James taught my grandson Math. He made it fun for him by incorporating sports into he lessons. He was very engaging and my grandson was attentive.

I am very pleased thus far with James' patience, willingness to go back a few steps to ensure my niece is on target, and his attention to detail. He knows to ask questions, when my niece has a blank stare on her face. His schedule is flexible and very accommodating. I look forward to working with James.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have substituted for more than 40 hours in Mathematics up through Algebra 2 in Prince Georges County. I had great success and left favorable impressions with students, who wanted or needed to learn.

Elementary Math Qualifications

In 2016 I mentored and coached one 5th grader in general elementary Math and one 6th grader in honors Pre-Algebra Math including Common Core for a total of 90 hours. Tremendous efforts by both students under my tutoring and coaching helped these students be successful by the end of the school year

I have substituted in middle and high school math classes with great success up through Algebra II and have had good rapport with students who want to learn and improve their learning and their grades.

I have over 40 hours of substituting in mostly Mathematics classes in Prince Georges County for Math Classes up to Calculus. I had much success with students, who wanted to learn and with students, who saw that I had knowledge and skills to help them do better in Mathematics.
