About James

I have extensive background in tutoring students of a wide range of ages.

I have a thorough understanding of micro- and macroeconomic theories, statistics, econometrics, and calculus. I have also lived and worked for a couple of years in Germany, and, in combination with my study of the German language, I am fluent with a complete understanding of grammar rules. I am excited to help students achieve their potential! I have extensive background in tutoring students of a wide range of ages.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a thorough understanding of biblical history and theology. I have studied the New and Old Testaments both in English and German. I have studied the German bibles by Luther and the Einheitsuebersetzung (unity translation), which provide a different perspective on Christian theology.

Economics

One of my double majors is a Bachelor of Science in Economics. I understand micro- and macroeconomic theories, and I have an ability to explain them in understandable terms.

Elementary Math

I have had much experience working with students ranging from K-12 in improving their basic math skills. I believe that students improve their math skills by mastering prerequisite techniques first. Most problems with math skills involve insufficient understanding of previous material. I can help identify those problems and address them.

English

I took AP English Literature in high school. I have also taken several English writing and philosophy classes while at university, so I am very aware of English writing conventions and grammar rules.

ESL/ESOL

I have a thorough understanding of English grammar, and I understand the difficulties in learning a second language so I know how to teach the material. My own mother speaks native Japanese, so I have a first-hand experience in understanding how to teach English to foreigners. I have also had experience teaching English to native German speakers.

European History

I took AP European History in high school and scored a 5 on the AP exam. I also spent 2 years living and working in Germany during which I gained a personal appreciation for European history. I have also studied German at the college level. One of my double majors is German

German

I studied German in high school, where I took AP German my senior year. I have also lived for two years in Germany. I have continued my study of the German language at West Point, where German is one of my double majors.

Piano

I have studied piano for over 15 years, 6 of which was at the New School for Music Study in Princeton, NJ. I have played church accompaniment, prelude, and postlude hymns. I believe in starting in fundamentals, beginning with the basics of music theory and note reading. Basic piano technique builds upon a solid understanding of music theory.

Social Studies

My area of study is in the social sciences. I am well-versed in the conventions of quality research in the social science fields, such as international relations, comparative politics, and economics. My major in economics has also allowed me to take classes in international relations theories and comparative / American politics.
