I am a highly experienced science and mathematics instructor with 20+ years experience in middle school, high school & college environments. I am a can-do educator, who has a proven track record for success. I have proven ability to energize students to excel in the sciences and mathematics. I am Texas certified in Composite Science & Mathematics. I have the rare ability to explain difficult concepts in multiple straight forward ways to students. This allows them to gain confidence in themselves and succeed academically.
I have been lauded in performance evaluations for high integrity, innovative approaches to student motivation, the ability to manage a heavy and diverse course load, and the rare skill to create excitement in areas of education normally viewed as dull, repetitive and boring.
I am immune to stress and able to reduce complex scientific and mathematical concepts to straightforward, understandable information capable of being assimilated by a wide variety of student aptitudes.
Great tutor and very easy to talk to!
James M. is a very friendly and patient tutor. He does not hurry you to feel that you know the subject matter until you know the information. He has an uncanny way of breaking down the information in multiple formats to ensure every student can be reached by one method or another. I enjoyed his lesson and would use him, as well as recommend him to anyone! Definite 5 star rating. This was my first tutor with WyzAnt and I am 100% satisfied!!!Chuck, 1 lesson with James
Thanks James for getting my student through chemistry this year. You were a blessing. Now on to our junior year. We will be calling you to get him ready for his SAT's this summer. Thanks again.Kathy, 13 lessons with James
James found my son's weaknesses in chemistry, provided solutions, and supplied great encouragement. This is just what my son needed.D'Ann, 12 lessons with James
Excellent with students
Jim is a great tutor! He has helped my daughter gain confidence in her problem solving strategies in Physics and Precalculus. She is a HS junior and these are both honors and dual credit classes. He takes time to make sure she understands the material and how to breakdown complex problems into solvable pieces. She had an A/B average in these classes but was worried that she wasn't grasping the fundamentals well enough and would eventually fall behind during the school year. She received a 94 on her last Physics test, and will finish the 1st quarter with an A in both courses. She is much more confident thanks to Jim's teaching and support. He is easy to communicate with and is available by phone, text and email. Jim is flexible in scheduling and made time for a lesson on very short notice today! I highly recommend his services.Sherrie, 5 lessons with James
Explains things well!
My 10th grade daughter is able to understand chemistry after James reviews with her much better than in the classroom. He knows the topics well. He is also helping her with Algebra II and is able to identify what she is doing incorrectly so that she can catch her mistakes. We are very appreciative.Leah, 15 lessons with James
Mr. James is an excellent tutor. He knows Chemistry inside and out. My son says that Mr. James took his time to go over each review sheet for his test. He is very knowledgeable about Chemistry. He did not rush through the assignment. He did each chemistry questions and gave the answer with easy to follow steps to review later. My son said that "Mr. James really is a the best tutor he's had since he's been in College." To all parents out there Mr. James is truly worth the hourly charge.Iona, 19 lessons with James
Very Knowledgeable, quick to respond to my urgent call, I am very grateful for the help he gave to my son - thank you again James.Brandon, 1 lesson with James
James does a very good job of teaching the content in a way that the student can gain an understanding and have an interest in the subject.Leslee, 11 lessons with James
Down to earth, reassuring, & patient ... knows how to teach.
James is a very effective tutor. I am a college student returning (after being out for almost 30 years). Just prior to my first test in Algebra, I realized that my skills were lacking - and I was not ready. James was able to meet with me (on very short notice), and worked patiently and diligently with me for 2 hours the first night -and another hour the night before the test. He really cares and wants to make sure I understand. He has been able to dissolve my fear of Algebra; I now know that passing this Algebra course can, and will be done. Thank you James!Mike, 2 lessons with James
"A great tutor with a love of teaching!"
Although, James has not been tutoring my daughter that long. I already see a difference in her attitude towards herself when it comes to chemistry, she has always had a fear of this subject and James has made her feel confident that she can and will achieve her goals when it comes to her chemistry class. He really is such a nice and compassionate man. I truly believe that when it comes to these struggling students, he would be willing to go the extra mile to help them anyway he can. He truly is a great tutor and would have been a great asset to any school as a teacher with his love of teaching.Yolanda, 11 lessons with James
