Hello Students!

If you need help with mathematics, physics, or engineering, I'd be glad to help out. With dedication, every student succeeds, so don’t despair!

Learning new disciplines keeps me very aware of the struggles all students face. Beyond academics, I spend my time backpacking, kayaking, weightlifting, jogging, bicycling, metalworking, woodworking, and building a wilderness home of my own design.

In between formal tutoring sessions, I offer my students FREE email support to keep them moving past particularly tough problems. 
 
In addition, I offer FREE ALL NIGHT email/phone support just before the “big" exam, for students who pull "all nighters".

One quick note about my cancellation policy, as it's different than most tutors:  Cancel one or all sessions at any time, and there is NO CHARGE. 

Thank you for considering my services, and the best of luck in all your endeavors!

Warm regards,

Dr. James P.

Math

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

My PhD is in Physics. Most laws of physics are written in terms of differential equations (or the more complicated partial differential equations). My pear reviewed published papers involve solving infinitely many (literally) differential equations. Finally, I've tutored the subject for decades and have unique approaches that make it far more palatable to students.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

My PhD is in Physics where extensive use of linear algebra occurs. I have pear reviewed published papers in theoretical quantum mechanics where the overlying structure relies on linear algebra. Finally, I've tutored college level linear algebra courses for years.

I think he's the best!

I'm an adult learner going to back to school for engineering. I've had many tutors throughout my educational career, none like Dr. P. I have struggled with math my whole life and Dr. P gave me so much confidence after my first session. He was able to accurately assess my current knowledge/skill and we rapidly progressed. Overall, he was life changing for me and makes math fun!

Mike, 3 lessons with James

Great!

My son is doing well in his first Calculus class. James is consistent. He communicates well and regularly. James is personable and is very effective! Very pleased!

Jackie, 10 lessons with James

Excellent tutor!

He simplified the concepts for me and made the material I was learning that much more accessible. In just two hours I had a better grasp on physics!

Yael, 3 lessons with James

Great teacher, very motivated

Jim is always engaged and genuinely strives to help me understand every part of given material in my math class. He puts in extra effort or whatever it takes to make sure you feel like you are getting the most out of his tutoring sessions.

William, 16 lessons with James

A caring and knowledgeable tutor

James is a very caring tutor and an expert in the subject of Physics. He has been helping my son with home work and preparing him for his upcoming test. My son loves his way of teaching AP physics. My son just started lessons with him.

Jyotsna, 4 lessons with James

Extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient tutor in physics and math.

James was highly recommended by people we know whose children were tutored by him. They were absolutely 100% correct ! He has helped our daughter understand the physics and math courses which gave her so much difficulty in school. James is a life saver! I do not believe there is another tutor as good as him.

Andre, 10 lessons with James

Excellent

James is fabulous. We are so grateful for his patient and meticulous approach. He is an excellent tutor who is attentive to his student's learning style and needs.

Anne, 63 lessons with James

Knowledgeable, patient tutor

My son feels James is very knowledgeable and has helped him understand Physics so much better. Also he had a test that he didn't feel he was ready for and Jim got him in for a lesson last minute for a quick review. Jim gets back very promptly.

Linda, 27 lessons with James

Great

James was great. He helped our daughter review algebra 1 and even started going into new material for Algebra 2... it will help her start the new year off right!
