Student ratings of tutor have been outstanding for both physics and math. James has also prepared items for ACT Science Testing. Many student comments on his teaching style often are that "he knows how to break complex stuff down and make it understandable". He has also written practice AP Physics practice tests for REA (Research and Education Association.) He has tutored at both individual and group level with success
James has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 55 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
James is a rare find!
My daughter was struggling in Physics. We hired James after she had received a 30 on her test. Her next test she received an 80. He comes with a lifetime of experience about how to teach physics as well as how to approach problems in physics. You will be very happy that you chose to work with James.Brent, 6 lessons with James
Great 1st Session
My daughter met with Mr. L. for the 1st time and found the experience to be very beneficial. We are hoping this manifests in her assignments this week. Mr. L. was very communicative throughout the pre meeting process and was 30 mins early for our session. Thus far we’ve had a great experience with Mr. L.Taylor, 2 lessons with James
Knowledgeable and Patient Teacher
Mr. L. is ALWAYS available and prepared to work with my son to help him get a clearer understanding of Physics IB problems and homework. Mr. L. helped my son when he was struggling to understand electromagnetic induction.Shawn, 8 lessons with James
Well prepared and excellent teacher.
Our son needed help in physics and James met us at a Starbucks the same day. He was extraordinarily prepared with various textbooks and worksheets. He also had an overview of his working style and expectations. Even more, he spent the first 15 minutes consulting with us and gaining a comfort level that we'd be successful - all before he started charging us. After the lesson, our son commented on how easy it was to learn from James and that he felt very prepared for the upcoming exams. We highly recommend James for families in North Dallas.Dennis, 3 lessons with James
Very knowledgable and thorough in tutoring.
James got right to the point and was helpful in explaining the concepts of the physics problems that I needed help with. His method was thorough and very informative. He understood the subject matter extremely well and was able to relay some of that knowledge which proved to be most helpful. An excellent tutor who I plan to use again!Sue, 2 lessons with James
He is tutoring my son in AP Physics C. He explained the processes to getting the correct solution well. Seems very knowledgeable. Only first session but seems like he will be a good tutor.Kim, 6 lessons with James
Help with Freshman Highschool Physics
He was very patient, and knowledgeable. He asked me questions that helped me understand the subject. He gave me helpful information on the internet that could supplement what I learned in class. He was very honest and fair about the tutoring timeline. I hope he will tutor me for the rest of the semester in Physics.Amie, 2 lessons with James
James is patiently and professionally helping my rebuild my mathematic skills in an area that I haven't used in years. He carefully analyzed what I was needing help with, established an understanding of how to help me and best work with me, provided a work up of the mathematical principals/rules that I needed, walked through each example and allowed me to work each example. Jim nailed what my needs are and we have a plan to get me where I need to be. I'm highly pleased.Tom, 3 lessons with James
5 Stars for Physics!
My son worked with James to help prepare for his AP Physics test and to boost his grade. Mr. James met with us prior to the tutoring sessions free of charge to develop an individualized plan and to set goals. He worked with our busy schedule to find a time that fit. He was always on time and he helped my son achieve his goals. During our sessions he answered questions and explained concepts in a way that was easy to relate to. On his latest quiz my son was the only student in both classes who received a 100. He said it was because he worked with Mr. James. I highly recommend Mr. James as a physics tutor.AJ, 4 lessons with James
