About James

I'm a recent SUNY New Paltz graduate with a B.S. in Mathematics. While studying at Dutchess Community College I tutored other students, and I've helped many friends with their math struggles over the years.

Subjects that I've studied include College Algebra*, Precalculus*, Calculus I-III*, Trigonometry*, Geometry*, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Analysis (intro and intermediate), Discrete Mathematics* (at DCC this was the equivalent to Intro to Proofs), Foundations of Algebra* (a proofs course, not the equivalent of high school algebra), Abstract Algebra (aka Modern Algebra), and Probability and Statistics. I'm quite comfortable with the courses that are listed with *, but I saved all of my notes so I still might be able to help with the courses aren't starred.

In order to be successful in the courses that follow basic algebra and calculus, you must have a solid understanding of the basics; math has a tendency to build on what you already know. I've taken a number of upper level math classes, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I have a solid understanding when it comes to lower level courses.

I try to tailor each of my tutoring sessions based on the needs of the student. Over the years I've come up with a lot of tricks and clever ways to help retain complicated mathematical procedures.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and I'm very familiar with algebra. Concepts from Algebra I & II are used frequently in upper level mathematics

Algebra 2

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and I'm very familiar with algebra concepts from Algebra I & II are used frequently in upper level mathematics.

Calculus

I majored in mathematics, and calculus is an integral part of higher level math. I studied various courses in which knowledge of calculus is required.

Guitar

I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years and have taken several college level guitar classes (Guitar I and II). I'm very familiar with beginner and intermediate level guitar. I can teach numerous guitar styles, beginner music theory and reading music, tab, chords, scales, soloing, rhythm guitar, and songs that students want to learn. I play electric and acoustic guitar.
