About James


Bio

Puzzled about how the Krebs and the Calvin cycles fit in with the carbon cycle? Want to know how muscles and nerves function? Frustrated by the difference between standard deviation and standard error? Need help on ANOVA, ANCOVA, and linear regression? Ever wonder how economic numbers are seasonally-adjusted and why? Need advice on analyzing data for a science project? Let me help.

Academic Background

I am a Ph.D. student in Environmental Sciences with a specialty in forest ecology and hold a Masters in Biology for Mammalian Ecology. I have a broad background in science, with emphasis on biology but also chemistry, physics, and statistics. In biology, I've had courses ranging from general biology to electron microscopy to animal physiology to plant physiology to population ecology and ecosystems ecology. My statistics background ranges from basic statistics to biostatistics to advanced linear regression, time series analysis, and spatial statistics.

Tutoring style

My tutoring style is straightforward and has developed over years of meeting with students outside of class. At the start of each session, I identify any areas we need to go over. I then explain and asking follow-up questions to gauge understanding, repeating sections until the material is learned. I also show how the lesson ties in to other concepts which helps students not only to learn and understand the new material but also to remember previous material. For example, when discussing physiology, I show how multiple organs and organ systems work together for every movement or response – even on simple reflex arcs – and to maintain a constant body environment. I end each session by suggesting materials to study for the next session.

Statistics

Statistics

I have taken one undergraduate and three graduate-level statistics courses, ranging from basic statistics (descriptive statistics, student t-test, linear regression, and nonparametric tests) to advanced multiple regression techniques (multivariate regression, logistic regression, splines, ANCOVA, etc.), time series analysis, and spatial statistics. I frequently use ANOVA, ANCOVA, multiple regression, Poisson regression, logistic regression, time series analysis, and spatial analysis in the course of my own research.

Excellent and Efficient

Mr. James teaches high school math to two of my children. We were blown away by his ability to have math concepts understood by our kids very quickly. He doesn’t belittle but empowers them.

Christina, 15 lessons with James

Great tutor

He is very knowledgeable about statistics and time series analysis. He went with me through R program and he is very good in coding R. I would recommend anyone who wants to improve in statistics to go with him.

Abdullah, 1 lesson with James

Knowledgeable tutor

James is a knowledgeable good teacher. He explains well. I'm blessed to have him as a tutor. I'm learning the materials. He is awesome. I would recommend him to anyone who needs math assistance.

Great tutor and very patient !

James help me with my quiz for biology about the mechanism of the muscle. He was very nice and patient with me . I'm very thankful because my grades going Up!!

Fernanda , 1 lesson with James

excellent knowledge

not only does James have an excellent working knowledge of statistics, he has a gift of knowing how to relate the relevance of this information to people who know nothing, or who know very little, about the subject. I give him six stars.
