About James

I was a chemical engineer for eight years and have been teaching math and science for almost 20 years. I am certified to teach math, statistics, chemistry and physics. I love teaching because you can have such a positive impact on students' lives. I particularly enjoy tutoring one on one because that is when a student learns the most.

Math is my favorite subject. I have taught every level of math from pre-algebra through calculus. Students have different learning styles. I am able to explain most math concepts in a variety of ways so that all of my students can understand the material. I enjoy working with a student to determine his or her learning style.

Contact me to schedule a session. I look forward to helping you reach your full potential.

Approved subjects

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.

Praxis

I passed the Praxis exams in math, chemistry, and physics. I am currently a certified teacher in these three areas. I have been teaching for over 17 years. My undergraduate degree is in chemical engineering, so I have several math, chemistry and physics classes on my college transcript. My masters degree is in math education. This degree included 18 graduate hours in math and 15 graduate hours in education.

SAT Math

I scored a 750 on the math portion of the SAT. I have an undergraduate degree in engineering and a masters degree in teaching math. I have been tutoring students for the math portion of the SAT for 17 years.
