About James

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 provide me with the curriculum that you are currently working on 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 offer a free 20 minute assessment prior to scheduling your first tutoring session. This enables me to identify your strengths and weaknesses and together develop a plan for mastery. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Study Skills

I have been very successful in teaching students how to properly study a subject. It is important to develop this skill while young. My granddaughter was failing in school until I started working with her every night. Now she has graduated from high school as a straight A student. I have completed 21 credit hours in education instruction at UNCW.

He knows his stuff

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.
