This has been a great semester working with Jim as he tutored my grandson! My grandson has come so far in chemistry with Jim as his tutor and was able to understand geometry better too. He has finished his geometry and chemistry for this school year, but we are looking forward to having Jim as his tutor next school year for math and science! Thank you Jim!
Jim was very nice and tried his best to help me with my organic chemistry. Unfortunately his background in organic chemistry was not strong enough to really help me with the material. He let me know he was rusty and wasn't sure on some of it. Overall he was helpful, but I will be needing someone with a stronger organic chemistry background.
I appreciate your help tutoring me. It really encouraged me to feel comfortable about doing my math assignments. Thanks!
Jim, just wanted to update you and let you know my son did very well on the placement test. Thank you for all your help!
The tutor is very helpful in learning a brand new concept. He's very knowledgeable of the material and gives you a good explanation. Great teacher!!!!
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.
I took three semesters of Engineering Calculus in college.
My PhD and Senior Thesis included biostatistics. In addition, I took a biostatistics class in college. I received an A in that class. In my biostatics class we replicated the data analysis done in the book "The Bell Curve". I am well acquainted with the work of Norman and Streiner and will use their texts for tutoring this subject.
I took Ecology at Villanova University and dealt with Ecological issues as part of my PhD work at Notre Dame.
I have for two years tutored an ESL student preparing to take TOEFL test through the Tulsa Library Literacy program. This program includes training and continuing education in ESL tutoring. My student was a Korean pastor going to Rhema Bible College. We worked on his syntax and pronunciation.
My PhD thesis dealt with genetics of the African Malaria Mosquito Anopheles gambiae. I studied both classical and molecular genetics in college and have taught a genetics lab. While my official degree from Notre Dame is in Biology, if I was a state school graduate I would have graduated from the Genetics department
On the paper GRE, out of possible scores of 800 on the Verbal/Quanitative/Analytical portions I scored 740/750/790.
I took logic in college, and earned an A. I have a philosophy minor at Villanova University which included the Logic course. I also taught a course in Euclidian Geometry for a Home School Academy. This is a logical, proof based method to teaching Geometry.
I was a Microbiologist for the state of Indiana for four years. I have assisted with microbiology classes in Oklahoma.
