About James

I am a former classroom instructor and tutor for a major test prep provider. I have taught and tutored the ACT, SAT, GMAT and GRE for more than 15 years. I have been consistently successful in establishing very close rapport with the students, and they consistently rate me very highly. Comments often focus on my caring about the students' success, my accessibility outside class and my ability to make the test less daunting to them. I am a very strong proponent of learning the processes that produce solutions. In a tutoring role I focus on the areas that have the greatest potential payback for the test taker in terms of a higher score. I use the Socaratic approach in that environment. I am open, forthright, friendly, respectful and have a wry sense of humor.

I am also an adjunct faculty member at University of Houston, where I also have received excellent evaluations from my students. Again, their comments focus on my concern for their success, my accessibility and my skill at making difficult topics more understandable. I am known to them as a mentor and many seek my opinion on topics related to their careers and education.

I would be delighted to help you prepare to conquer either the GRE or the GMAT!

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.

An 'outside-the-box' kinda thinker

James is excellent in inspiring his students in thinking of ways and strategies that you have never thought of. He understands how you might deal with a problem on the GMAT, and he will simplify your method by a step or two.
