Math, Science, Test Prep, Humanities tutor. M.Div.

James F.
I can teach General Relativity to an English major, and I can help physics students write essays for law school (I’ve done both). I specialize in taking hard concepts and making them relatable to anyone. Every person has a unique way of peering into the world and seeing wonder. Whatever subject you're studying, I discover how you learn, and then I translate that subject in words and language that makes sense to you. Together we build confidence one problem and one sentence at a time.

ACT English,
#### ACT English

I've studied multiple languages, linguistics, and I have a Master's degree in Theology. But I am equally gifted in math and science, and I bring a rigorous statistical approach to studying for the verbal sections on the ACT and SAT. My students learn the skills that lead to quick improvement in test scores and confidence in reading and writing.

I completed an M. Div from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2015, being ordained as a deacon in the PCUSA, have founded a non-profit that consults with churches on practical ministry, and have worked in churches in volunteer and professional capacities for 20 years.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

I have over ten years of experience teaching algebra 1 in the classroom and one-on-one. Algebra 1 was hard for me when I was first learning in middle school, so I know what it's like to see a variable and freeze. Over the years I've worked hard to take the abstract in algebra and make it concrete. Let's work together!

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

I have over ten years of experience teaching algebra 2 in the classroom and one-on-one. Algebra 2 was hard for me when I was first learning in middle school, so I know what it's like to see a variable and freeze. Over the years I've worked hard to take the abstract in algebra and make it concrete. Let's work together!

Calculus,
#### Calculus

Calculus can seem so intimidating, many students avoid the subject, never even trying to take their first derivative. But fear not! Calculus is actually one of the most interesting maths you can study. I specialize in making calculus what it should be: a fun and fascinating topic that can open up the world around you. Let's work together and you'll not only get better grades, you may find yourself seeing math as fun for the first time!

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I've tutored Chemistry students of all abilities for over ten years! The key in chemistry is pairing two skills: memorization and basic algebra. It looks scary because of all the weird symbols and new terms, but if you learn the language of chemistry, most of the problems are fairly simple. I work hard to help you bring together the concepts, the language, and the math to ensure your success!

Physics,
#### Physics

Physics is the language of the universe! But that language can often seem weird, out of place with what we experience in everyday life. I have been spent years as a physics teacher and tutor translating the language of physics into something anyone can understand. Let's work together, and make physics what it was meant to be: a window into the amazing wonder all around us!

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

I love Math! It’s the language of the universe, and math proficiency develops cognitive skills that can be used in fields that never touch an algebra equation. Unfortunately, many math devotees tend to be less proficient at social relationships and human communication. But even though I love and excel at math, my true gifts are as a communicator and a teacher. I can work with you to find those missing pieces in your math history that are holding you back in class. Send me a message and let's get started making that math class a little bit easier, and maybe, just maybe, a little bit more fun.

SAT Math,
#### SAT Math

I’ve been tutoring students from all over the United States in SAT/ACT prep for over ten years. I was trained by an award-winning tutoring and test prep company in suburban Los Angeles. Students often spend thousands of dollars on tutoring mills that blast information indiscriminately to large classes of desperate high schoolers. I have developed a more targeted approach that identifies the key areas students need to see a rapid increase in their scores. I have had students go from a 29 to a36 on the ACT, from a 1150 to a 1520 on the SAT, and my students have gone on to schools like Cal-Berkeley, Stanford, Virginia, UNC, Duke, Michigan, and many many more. Let’s work together to see your student admission letters go from a dream to reality!

I've been an ACT Math tutor for over ten years. When I work with a student, I do a comprehensive assessment of a students abilities and then design a program customized to their individual needs. Over time, your student will gain confidence in their own abilities and be ready for whatever the test can throw at them. Let's work together to build a better future!

James has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **3 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## James helped answer the questions she had

He walked her through how to solve the problems. He prompted her to think through various solutions. Seemed pleasant and approachable. I would call him again when needed to prepare for a quiz. Nice job.

Nick, 1 lesson with James

## Patient and Knowledgeable

Thanks James for a great first lesson. My son felt more confident on his calculus quiz. Will set up a weekly session.

Luana, 2 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable and patient

James worked with my son on Physics. He was very happy with the review session and assistance he received from him. He felt confident and better prepared going into his test.

Sandra, 2 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My child has had a few lessons on pre-calculus with James. We are glad James is available. He is smart and affordable, and very good at explaining various math concepts.

Joyce, 3 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

I gained a lot out of my session, James has a real gift for explaining things to even the most non-math minded of people (like myself) in a way that is easily digestible and applicable. We were able to iron out many of my problem solving difficulties with the current unit and for one session it was very productive. Would recommend.

Elizabeth , 11 lessons with James

## Wonderful teaching style with SAT math

James was a great tutor with SAT math. He was very patient when going over some more foundational concepts that my daughter was rusty on and introduced new concepts to her in a way that really made sense. Lily really appreciated his teaching style and set up for lessons and definitely retained a lot more information with him than she typically does when just learning in class.

Demetra, 5 lessons with James

## PSAT/SAT tutoring.

Savannah loves her lesson with James and looks forward to many more. She learned so much and the time flew! We are so grateful she was able to find someone she truly enjoys learning with. Thank you James!

Sarah, 10 lessons with James

## Knowledgeable and encouraging tutor

James is a great SAT tutor. We worked on math, and he is really patient in helping guide you to the right answers. Also great at teaching more broad test-taking strategies. Thank you James!

Ivan, 4 lessons with James

## Differential Equations

I sent the topic I wanted to review ahead of time. He was able to work them out ahead then broke them down for me step by step. Now I'm confident in my ability to solve annihilators.

Kendra, 4 lessons with James

## Calculus 3 tutor

The session was very helpful. I have an exam in 2 days. I had a hard time understanding the topic my professor was teaching but James broke them down step by step and explain the application. Now I feel confident in my ability to do the exam.
