About Jim

I have taught math for nearly 40 years. I have worked with all age groups, from gifted middle school students to high school students (in both all boy and all girl settings) and even junior college students, including those just out of high school to adults going back to school. I've taught classes from Basic Math to Calculus, including Logic, Probability and Number Theory. If you're having trouble in Math and want to do better, I think that I can help you.

When I am working in a one on one setting I like to watch you work through (or at least attempt to work through) several problems. Like a hitting coach helping a batter in a slump, I think that watching you take a few swings will help me diagnose why you're having problems and ultimately formulate a plan to help. Difficulties in math can stem from a variety of causes. Sometimes, misunderstanding a concept may lead to repeating the same mistake over and over again. Difficulties with formulas is also a common problem for math students: not knowing them, not understanding them or using them in the wrong situations. And sometimes its just carelessness. You know how to do it but you rush and mistakes follow. Whatever the source of the problem, the hope is that by focusing on it together, we will be able to remedy it.
