About James


Bio

Throughout my career, I have achieved many interesting and diverse things: I have worked on cutting edge NASA imaging systems, innovated new combustion engine technologies for Cummins, played saxophone on two Grammy-nominated albums, coded video games and artificial intelligence algorithms, and co-wrote several screenplays, three of which were optioned by Hollywood production companies. However, despite my successes, my greatest joy still comes from sharing my knowledge and igniting a passion...

Throughout my career, I have achieved many interesting and diverse things: I have worked on cutting edge NASA imaging systems, innovated new combustion engine technologies for Cummins, played saxophone on two Grammy-nominated albums, coded video games and artificial intelligence algorithms, and co-wrote several screenplays, three of which were optioned by Hollywood production companies. However, despite my successes, my greatest joy still comes from sharing my knowledge and igniting a passion for learning in others.

My experience as a teacher spans over 15 years with an incredible track record for success. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone, has the capacity to learn and succeed, and I do my best to take subject material and make it as easy to understand, organize, retain, and execute on a test as possible. Unlike most tutors, who are either still in school or only recently graduated, I have immense industry and life experience, and can add immense value to your education! For example, this year I have arranged for several of my students to have internships over the summer with either Hollywood production companies as script readers or engineering/tech companies.

I love meeting new people, figuring out how they learn best, and mentoring them to accomplish their life goals. I understand that my rate is quite high compared to most on this platform, but I truly believe that I bring tremendous value to your overall academic life and beyond. Please feel free to reach out, and I’d be happy to discuss your situation with you in much greater detail.

In my career I have done many interesting things: worked on next-gen Mars rovers for NASA, innovated new diesel engine technologies for Cummins, played saxophone on two Grammy-nominated albums, and co-wrote a screenplay optioned by Hollywood! However, my greatest joy still comes from sharing my knowledge and igniting a passion for learning in others.

I love meeting new people, figuring out how they learn best, and seeing them accomplish their goals. So please let me know what I can do to help!

Awesome

We were so lucky to have James as a tutor. My son was contemplating dropping the class but decided to try tutoring first. Shockingly,my son ended up with an A in the class. James was extremely patient, explained the material well and his follow up with the lesson was impeccable. Thank you James

Kandi, 22 lessons with James

Outstanding tutor for MechE

My first session with James on Solid Mechanics topics preparing for final. Really helpful. Explanations and teaching style more effective than my profs and TA’s. Will make a difference on my exam. Many thanks!!

Camie, 1 lesson with James

Excellent tutor

James does a great job working with my 15-year old son with Algebra 2 and chemistry. He was also great working with my daughter last year on her SAT math prep. really helped to increase her math score.

Patricia, 38 lessons with James

Knowledgeable and insightful tutor

James is able to take complicated material and make it relatable to a life experience that can be understood. James is also able to identify any gaps in understanding of the material.

Gretchen, 15 lessons with James

Knowledgeable tutor

Excellent tutor. I highly recommend him. He takes the time to go over each problem patiently. I highly recommend him. He goes up and over for a student. Again I would highly recommend him.

Jill, 10 lessons with James

Fantastic tutor

James worked with my son, a junior in high school, on Physics. He helped my son enormously in terms of understanding the concepts and in helping my son solve homework problems. My son's grade improved significantly but, even more importantly, his level of confidence in his work increased dramatically. James is fantastic with teenagers and had a manner about him that both my son and I found very engaging. We could not recommend him more highly.

Julia, 9 lessons with James

Knowledgable

James was my tutor for solids 2. James was a very knowledgable tutoring who was able to teach me everything I needed to knowfor solids 2. When specific areas came up that are not normally taught in solids 2. James researched these areas and was able to teach me what I needed to know.

Martin, 19 lessons with James

Excellent tutor

James has been very helpful to my son who was behind in calculus and anylitical geometry. He was able to catch him up and give him a greater understanding of the material. We will continue to seek his assistance and wish we found him sooner.

Eileen, 7 lessons with James

Outstanding instructor

We have been extremely fortunate to have James as a tutor for four of our kids. He has made the difference in high school Physics and PreCalc. He has proven to be both a subject matter expert and a patient teacher. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
