About James


Bio

Hello, I am 23 years old and I live in Queens, NY. I graduated from Hofstra University last May with a BS in Mathematics. In high school I was always in advanced math classes. Solving math problems and equations always came easily to me. My friends always used to come to me for help on their homework or to study for their math exams. In fact, most of them still do.

Hello, I am 23 years old and I live in Queens, NY. I graduated from Hofstra University last May with a BS in Mathematics. In high school I was always in advanced math classes. Solving math problems and equations always came easily to me. My friends always used to come to me for help on their homework or to study for their math exams. In fact, most of them still do. However, it is not just about being able to complete the task, it is about being able to explain the process of completing the task in a way that is easy to comprehend. I learned how to do this while teaching over the summer in DC.
Telling someone how to do something is not teaching; it is just one step. I like to use the "I do", "We do", "You do", "Review" method. First I will explain and describe a concept or topic (I do). Then I will walk through a basic example demonstrating said topic or concept together with the student (We do). Next, I will let the student struggle with more difficult examples to establish a well-rooted base of understanding (You do). I say struggle because if they do not understand, I need the student to work it out on their own so I can see their mistakes and correct them. Finally, we will go over the concept, correcting any mistakes and ensuring complete understanding (Review).
