I was lucky enough to make straight A's in math while in college but making an A in math was not always the case for me. I had a very difficult math teacher in High School that simply did not give enough time to take a test to get all the answers right.
Do you run out of time taking a test? I found out that getting with others and seeing them struggle with the same problems allowed a big boost in my performance. If you can't find a math buddy or if you are shy to ask for help then maybe a paid tutor is what you need.
Since it is difficult to be the master of all math subjects at the same time, I ask that you give me the sheets you are currently working on a day in advance. My free time will be spent preparing a lesson so I can answer all of your questions when we meet.
The biggest boost to math performance is breaking it down into terms that you can understand. I try to meet you where you are at in your understanding and I don't criticize any lack of knowledge you may have. If I fail to satisfy you in any way, then your lesson is FREE.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

James listened well and came prepared for Algebra 2 tutoring lessons with my twin sons.
He is very patient and tries to make the abstract relatable to teenagers.
He helped me get a better grade on my last test before midterm. He also helped me to pass my midterm.
After nearly ten years since completing calculus 1 James was instrumental in my success with college level calculus 2. Able to meet twice a week, James got me caught up on the fundamentals and helped me through advanced theories of differentials, series, sequences, integrals, and limits. James provided his own notes on each of the applications and guided me through problem solving to gain a thorough understanding.
James is very knowledgeable and enjoys teaching.
James is doing a wonderful job with my son Nathan. They are reviewing Algebra 1 as they move into the Algebra 2 book. Nathan has made great progress with James and scoring 100's on his homework.
James has been a wonderful tutor to help our daughter, who had been struggling in Pre-Calculus. He was always very prompt and, more importantly, very patient in working through the problems and explaining the solutions in ways that she was better able to understand. I was very impressed with the preparation that went into each two hour lesson as he clearly spent a great deal of his own time behind the scenes preparing the lessons with sample problems and practice tests. Thanks to the extra help that James was able to provide, she received one of the highest grades on the final exam. Our only regret was not getting James involved earlier in the semester.
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 significantly helped many students in this area. One student went completely through the course and another student picked up with only a few weeks to go. Both of them said I had really made a difference in their understanding of the material. Several other students studied only one time each but that was all they needed to see where to go from there. I like to use a TI89 or TI83/84 calculator if it is allowed. It can really make a difference if you know how to use it.
I have tutored college students in trigonometry in subjects including the unit circle, trigonometry identities, and trigonometric proofs. I also helped a student at the community college level solving equations involving trigonometry on a TI83 calculator. If you ask for help, I can give you a four page summary sheet of all the important trigonometric identities.
