About James

Hi, I'm James! I recently graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor's of Science with Honors in Geology-Biology. While I was at Brown, I served as a teaching assistant for a variety of classes, which helped me to hone my ability to work with students in both 1-on-1 settings and larger groups. I learned that the best teachers create a dialogue with their students, discussing the material instead of simply lecturing about it. This realization guides my tutoring philosophy. The excellent evaluations I received from my students at Brown attest to my skill as a 1-on-1 tutor. During school breaks, I also worked with my younger siblings on homework and projects, which gave me experience as a tutor for students of all levels in many subjects.

Many of my Brown professors stressed that verbal communication is a vital skill for any scientist, and helped me to develop ability to write clearly and concisely. I received top grades on all written assignments, and have been praised as a strong writer. I have helped family and friends to craft top-notch essays for both coursework and applications for college, internships, and scholarships, with successful results. As a writing coach, I focus on clarifying the central theme of the piece, eliminating unnecessary or confusing constructions, and ensuring that the piece is free of typos or grammatical errors.

I am an aspiring paleontologist, and have a broad education in geology and biology. I am particularly knowledgeable about geology, evolutionary biology, and comparative anatomy; however, paleontology is an interdisciplinary science, and my education has exposed me to the fundamentals of physics, chemistry, and math, in addition to geology and biology.

In March of my senior year, I published a scientific paper on a primitive mammal in the Journal of Mammalian Evolution, and was interviewed about my research for a piece in Science News magazine. This publication is a testament to both my scientific knowledge and my ability to write and communicate effectively.

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.

Regents

I took Regents exams in all subjects except for foreign languages during my time as a New York State student. I received an A (over 90) in all of them, and received a 99 on the Earth Science and Chemistry Regents exams. In college, I majored in Earth Science and Biology, and studied science and math extensively. Throughout my college career, I was an undergraduate teaching assistant, and helped students prepare for exams in particular subjects. I therefore have experience taking Regents exams, teaching scientific material to students, and helping them learn strategies to succeed on exams.
