About James

I have lots of experience in tutoring at a high school and college level. Some of the jobs I have held that have allowed me to gain tutoring experience include:

Supplemental Instructor - This job detailed me to hold group study sessions in which I teach good study habits as well as help with the subject I SI for. I have been an SI for:
General Chemistry (Monroe Country Community College)
Biochemistry (University of Michigan - Dearborn)
Molecular Biology (University of Michigan - Dearborn)

On top of this I have held positions as a student mentor in general chemistry at the U of M - Dearborn. I hold office hours and grade papers. I also help with coming up with questions for some of the test, which allows me to gauge at what type of questions most teachers may put on test. I also as award honors student of the year in biochemistry and graduated top 10 in my major.

I was also previously a math tutor at U of M - Dearborn. So, I not only have a vast amount of experience in tutoring science, but math as well.

Along with all these experiences, I have tutored one-on-one for over 1000+ hours. All the students I have tutored have raised their grade by at least one letter grade. Many have raised their grades by even more than one letter grade though. So, if you choose me to be a tutor for you, your daughter, son, niece, or nephew, you will not be disappointed.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I have gotten A's in both Organic Chemistry 1 & 2. When I was taking these classes, I helped a lot of my fellow classmates to help understand some of the material they were not quite clear on. I am also a Biochemistry and Bioengineering major and have have taken higher level chemistry classes and excelled in those as well. Chemistry, is overall, my best subject, and I pride myself in being able to break down complicated concepts and make them into easily understood concepts.
