About James


Bio

I have been tutoring since I was in high school and I always wanted to be a teacher but my need to be challenged took me on a different path. I studied mathematics for 3 years at Temple University for teaching before switching to mechanical engineering at Drexel University where I received my Bachelor's Degree. I also interned at SPS Technologies where I worked as a quality engineer.

I have been tutoring since I was in high school and I always wanted to be a teacher but my need to be challenged took me on a different path. I studied mathematics for 3 years at Temple University for teaching before switching to mechanical engineering at Drexel University where I received my Bachelor's Degree. I also interned at SPS Technologies where I worked as a quality engineer.

I taught science and mathematics at Enopi for 6 years where my students ranged from elementary school to high school. This also meant that my range of science and mathematics topics that I have taught is broad as well. From physical science to chemistry and physics in science and from pre-algebra to calculus and SAT math, I am well-versed in many different topics. My classes were usually around 15 students but I also had 1-on-1 tutor sessions at the request of parents if they required more help.

What I love about teaching is when students come upon their eureka moment and everything becomes easier. It happens so often in math and science because a lot of times the numbers and variables just seem like a jumbled mess until all the rules, theorems, and postulates start clicking together. I also appreciate the diversity of the students' abilities which makes it a new challenge every time in finding out how to help them improve. I not only love to teach but I love to learn and not to sound cliche but I most definitely learn something new from every student I teach. It is just a satisfying job on so many levels.

My specialty is SAT math and I have great success in drastically increasing students' scores. I love tutoring students in SAT math because I feel that students are so worried and feel that they cannot get a great score and I love to ease their worries. I am very good at analyzing a student's abilities and finding their weaknesses and making them their strengths which is great for tutoring for the SATs. Most of my students have achieved scores of 700-800 which includes two 7th graders studying to be accepted into a summer Johns Hopkins program. My motto for teaching math to all my students has been "Practice makes perfect" which i have ingrained in their brains ad nauseam.

I am excited to hear from you and to help you in anyway that I can!

I have tutored students 1 on 1 and in groups at an after school tutoring center as well as private tutoring. SAT Math is my expertise and I have only had one student fail to reach 700. With time, practice, and dedication to the work I believe I can help everyone reach the score they want but with me 800 is always the goal.
