About Jim


Bio

I have thirty plus years of experience in contractual process engineering across many industries: intermediate and fine chemicals, pharmaceutical API, titanium dioxide manufacturing, paints and paint resins, water and waste treatment, utility systems, solvent recovery, and more.

I have thirty plus years of experience in contractual process engineering across many industries: intermediate and fine chemicals, pharmaceutical API, titanium dioxide manufacturing, paints and paint resins, water and waste treatment, utility systems, solvent recovery, and more. My design engineering has taken me to many cities and I have tried to give back through tutoring, mostly in mathematics. I tutored in Cleveland, Ohio helping eighth grade students gain math proficiency for the year-end state exams. I tutored math in the Kalamazoo, Michigan Loy Norrix high school. And I helped in the Youth Family Center in St. Louis, Missouri during my two-year stay.

I can be a help at any level of mathematics having used it as an everyday tool in my career. I'm hoping we can discover some "ah-hah's" together!

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

My career background has been in chemical process design; algebra is a tool I have used in my everyday work process. I have tutored eighth grade through college calculus.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

My career background has been in chemical process design. As such I have solved hundreds of material and heat balance equations as the basis of design for entire processing facilities. Algebra is the fundamental tool in the execution of those type solutions.
Geometry,

Geometry

My career as a design engineer led me all in areas of process engineering including what is known as conceptual equipment layout. The process is one of optimizing layouts to gain full advantage for efficient process flows and maintenance access; geometry is one of the essential tools in that work process.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Algebra and all of its precursors have been everyday tools I have used in thirty years of engineering design. I have also done extensive tutoring at the eighth grade (pre-algebra) level preparing students for the state exams.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

My career background has been in chemical process design. I have analyzed many problems in both heat transfer and mass transfer arenas of the unsteady-state variety. These type of "anylization of change" problems can only be solved with the application of calculus and pre-calculus knowledge.
SAT Math

SAT Math

I have done a lot of independent math tutoring in my travels all over the country...most of that experience is in helping with the SAT. The exam covers a broad range of mathematics all of which I have tutored and utilized in my everyday work processes.

The Best!

Jim did an outstanding job working with my 8th grade daughter to help her get caught up in Algebra. From the first session, he was both easy going and easy to follow. Even on the days when she really doesn't want to dig deep into math, my daughter is happy to work with Jim. And when we needed to make changes to our tutoring schedule, Jim was incredibly flexible. Thank you for being the perfect tutor for us, Jim!

Knowledgeable and patient. Excellent match for my 17 year old son with ADHD.

My son has only excellent things to say about his tutoring sessions with Jim I'm super happy with how they are progressing. Couldn't ask for a better more professional tutor. He is able to teach the material in a way that my son is actually comprehending the material!! Thank you Jim and Wyzant!!
