Inquisitive PhD student of Math and Music at CUNY Graduate Center
I am an inquisitive student of the seemingly disparate disciplines of mathematics and music. I am currently a Pure Mathematics PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center in Manhattan. I also have my BM from the Crane Institute for Music Business in Music Business with a specialization in double bass and my MA in Pure Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam.
I most enjoy the process of developing a student's understanding from the foundations. All too often, teachers of math are not familiar with the...

Intelligent, Understanding and Patient,
James is a wonderful tutor. I am enrolled in an online calculus class and James has been very helpful. We meet every week for hours and he goes over all the material, explaining each concept and breaking it down into simpler terms. He's always accommodating with meetings and makes himself available for as long as you need. Since its an online class, James is not only just my tutor but also like a professor teaching me each lesson. He's very intelligent and also patient when I do not understand a rule or concept. I am very glad I found James and I plan on meeting with many more times for tutoring sessions. I recommend him for anyone taking a difficult math class. He's the best!

Knowledgeable, patient and kind
James helped me with my trigonometry homework. He was thorough, patient and very kind. He arrived on time and was very helpful. Sometimes in trying to explain a topic he reviewed things I knew already but that is probably just part of the process. Thank you James for your help.

AP Calculus BC tutoring
James has turned out to be exceptionally well-suited to the temperament and learning style of our student. He is diligent, quick, patient, and encouraging. Our student comes away from each session feeling confident and sure-footed, especially as James helps her fill in some of the conceptual gaps in her past studies of mathematics.

Knowledgeable and understanding
James helped me break down difficult calculus concept and helped me understand how to apply them, I look forward to meeting more with James to better understand the subject at hand.

Super Helpful and Clear
James tutored me in College Algebra, answered my questions, and helped me get past some points I was stuck on. I feel so much more comfortable heading into my final exam.
Tara, 2 lessons with JamesTutor responded:Thanks, Tara!
I highly recommend him!!
James is an amazing tutor! He was very patient and always had different way explaining the same problem. Sometimes I was getting frustrated with myself and he always reassured me that it's okay. I had a test on the day he tutored me and it's because of him I was able to get through the test confidently. Thank you James for all of your help. It's great to find a supportive tutor!!

Great teacher, very patient
As I asked a dozen questions for every step, James displayed no signs of impatience. He knew every topic like the back of his hand. In addition, he gave me an encouraging background story of how he became good at math. If anyone considers using James, two thumbs up if you've just read this.

Amazing experience! Def will continue!
James was amazing! Will def recommend and go back! We went through many elements of excel including some complex solutions and formulas. I feel much more comfortable in my use of excel across the board.

Helpful Finite Math Tutor
James was so helpful with my College Finite Math class. I highly recommend him as he was clear and knowledgeable and explained and taught me so much in the first session!
Hedi, 5 lessons with JamesTutor responded:Thanks, Hedi!
