Subject Knowledgeable

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.

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

Outstanding Tutor

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.

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.
